Sport: NFL | Star Rating: 8.0 Evaluation: Win (800)
LAR (-120) @ Draftkings

8* Take the LA Rams on the Moneyline (#270)

The Rams went into the bye week in a foul mood; off a truly ugly loss at Miami.  Head coach Sean McVay: “This is a sick taste in your mouth…unfortunately, you’ve got to kind of sit on this a little bit longer than what you’d like.”  WR Robert Woods: ‘We’re good.  We’re not great.”

McVay’s been pretty good off a bye week with a 34 point win and a 14 point win in three previous tries.  McVay’s also been pretty good against Pete Carroll; 4-1 SU in the last five meetings with the lone SU loss coming in spread covering fashion by a single point.  It’s surely worth noting that the Rams offense has scored 28+ in each and every one of those last five meetings; whereas Seattle has been held under 14 points against LA twice during that span.

Since starting the season 4-0 SU, 4-0 ATS, Seattle has a grand total of one pointspread cover – against a 49ers team with $80 million in salary cap on injured reserve.  They’ve played one wacky game after the next, not exactly a ‘fresh, ready and rested’ team to face an opponent off a bye.  Three defenders – DT Bryan Mone, LB KJ Wright and B DJ Reed all sprained their ankles last week.  CB Quinton Dunbar hobbled off the field with a sore knee.  There’s an enormous defensive disparity between these two teams.

The Rams rank #1 in the NFL, holding foes to 4.7 yards per play.  The Seahawks rank #28 in the NFL, allowing  6.2 yards per snap.  The Rams are rested and ready; the Seahawks are gassed, and playing on the opposite coast from last week.  Jared Goff has owned Russell Wilson in recent meetings.  In this pointspread range, it’s a moneyline wager; giving us a bit of extra protection – a SU win cashes our bet.  Take the Rams on the Moneyline.


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
