Betting with Bastl: Rams Have the Seahawks Number?

Jared Goff, Rams, 2020

The Rams are an outstanding 6-2 against the spread versus the Seahawks in their last eight games in Los Angeles.

Usually I hate betting against the Seahawks, but here in week 10 – I’m going to do it.
This is a really good spot for the home side Rams. First off, they are coming off a bye week – getting an extra week to prep for a division rival they know well and have played well against in the past. The Rams have won four of the last five games against the Seahawks and the game they lost was a one point setback.
Sean McVay is 4-2 against Pete Carroll and his team is also averaging 33.6 points per game over the five contests.
Last week in Buffalo, the Hawks laid an egg against the Bills as they spotted the home side an early 17 point lead. The running attack was atrocious with lead back DeeJay Dallas managing only 31 yards on seven carries and the team as a whole rushed for 57 yards total. There is hope Chris Carson could return to the lineup, but he is still listed as questionable to play this game.

NFL Week 9 Betting Two-Minute Drill

The over has hit in four of the last five games when these two teams have met. Jared Goff has passed for 300+ yards against the Seahawks in three of his last four games, the other game, just seven yards short of the mark at 293 yards. Seattle is a miserable 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games in Los Angeles.
Bastl’s Bet: Rams -1

Overtime Predictions:

Dalvin Cook in prime-time? Yes please. Number 33 has been dynamite for the Vikings, coming off his best game of the season last week against Detroit. Cook motored for 206 yards on 22 carries and also added two touchdowns. He now leads all NFL’s running backs with 858 yards. Will the Bears 15th ranked defence against the run be able to stop him? I say no, no they won’t.
The Bengals are coming off a bye week where they healed up some of their offensive line and got some early prep on their division rival. The Steelers are 8-0 for the first time in the history of the franchise. They played a sloppy game in Dallas, managed to pull out the win, but not the cover. If they try that again, they cover this number. The Steelers have only won by more than a touchdown once in their last five games against the Bengals. Cincinnati is 11-5 ATS in their last 16 road games.
Bastl’s Bet: Vikings-2.5, Bengals +8.5
