Seahawks vs. Rams odds, line: 2020 NFL picks, Week 10 predictions from model on 112-74 run

The Los Angeles Rams hope their new home field remains an advantage when they host the first-place Seattle Seahawks in an NFC West showdown on Sunday. The Rams (5-3) have won all three of their games in the state-of-the-art SoFi Stadium. They won the last meeting between the teams, easing to a 28-12 victory when Seattle (6-2) visited the Coliseum late last season. The Rams’ defense has been stellar and quarterback Jared Goff has been playing well, while Seahawks QB Russell Wilson leads the league’s top passing offense, but both teams have had issues with turnovers.

Kickoff is set for 4:25 p.m. ET at SoFi Stadium. Los Angeles is a 2.5-point favorite in the latest Seahawks vs. Rams odds at William Hill Sportsbook, while the Over-Under for total points scored is 54.5.

Now, the model has broken down Rams vs. Seahawks. You can head to SportsLine to see the picks. Here are the NFL odds and trends for Seahawks vs. Rams:

Seahawks vs. Rams spread: Los Angeles -2.5
Seahawks vs. Rams over-under: 54.5
Seahawks vs. Rams money line: Seattle +125, Los Angeles -140
SEA: WR DK Metcalf has 19 catches for 269 yards and three TDs in the last two games
LAR: RBs Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown have a combined 772 yards and six rushing TDs

Why the Rams can cover
Los Angeles is 16-5-1 against the spread in its last 22 games versus NFC teams, and the defense could rattle Wilson, who has tossed eight interceptions, fourth-most in the league. He also has been sacked 24 times and now faces a defense that has 24 takedowns. L.A.’s defense is second in the league against the pass (197.1 per game).

The Rams, who are 5-1-1 against the spread in their last seven games as home favorites, also run a balanced offense led by Goff. The veteran threw for a season-high 355 yards in a 28-17 loss to Miami last week, with Cooper Kupp catching 11 balls for 110 yards.

Goff counts heavily on Kupp (48 receptions) and wide receiver Robert Woods (37), while tight ends Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett have 20 catches apiece. The Rams also rush for 137.8 yards per game (seventh in the NFL).

Why the Seahawks can cover
Seattle is 9-2 against the spread in its last 11 games as a road underdog, and quarterback Russell Wilson and receiver DK Metcalf have been carrying the team. Wilson is fourth in the NFL with 2,541 yards and has a league-high 28 TD passes. Metcalf has 788 yards through eight games (second in NFL) and scored eight times (second). Wilson also counts on Tyler Lockett (615 yards and seven scores) and David Moore (15.8 yards per catch).

Seattle’s defense has 14 takeaways, with nine interceptions, and three defensive backs have two picks apiece. K.J. Wright, who is fighting an ankle injury, has a pick and two fumble recoveries, while fellow linebacker Bobby Wagner provides tackles (80) and leadership. Safety Jamal Adams has 3.5 of the team’s 19 sacks.
