Sport: NFL | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Win (1000)
LAR (-117) @ pinnacle

The set-up: This game opened as a pick, but it's since moved to -2.5 or even -3 for the home side. For this pick I'm going to suggest steering clear of the spread though and to lay the reasonable price for the Rams to win on the money-line. Seattle got out to a great start, but that came against weak competition. The Hawks' defense is atrocious and I expect Jared Goff and the Rams to take care of business at home. Seattle has also lost two in a row on the road. Russell Wilson has 28 touchdown passes and only eight interceptions, but Seattle allows 30.4 PPG.

The picks: The Rams on the other hand have won three straight at home. LA averages 24.1 PPG and it concedes just 19. LA lost to Miami, but it conceded only 145 total yards. While this is a money-line bet, it's still interesting to note that LA is 5-1-1 ATS in its last seven following a SU loss, while Seattle is just 1-4 ATS in its last five vs. the division. Wilson has thrown five INT's over his last three games, as regression on the offensive side is also under way in Seattle. Divisional contests are always the most important and they almost always mean the most to the home side. Lay the price for the outright, straight up win.

This is a 10* NFC WEST BEST OF THE BEST on the RAMS on the MONEY LINE.


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.
