Rams open as 6.5-point underdogs vs. Seahawks in season finale

Prior to this season, the Los Angeles Rams hadn’t been underdogs very often with Sean McVay as their head coach. But they’ve gotten used to that feeling in 2022, and they’ll close out the season as underdogs once again.

The Rams are on the road against a desperate Seahawks team that needs a win to keep its playoff hopes alive. And according to Tipico Sportsbook, the Rams are 6.5-point underdogs to Seattle. This is the eighth week in a row the Rams are listed as underdogs, with the last time they were favored being in Week 10 against the Cardinals.

The over/under is set at 41.5 points, and the Rams are +240 on the money line ($100 bet wins $240). So if you’re confident the Rams will pull off the upset and win straight-up, betting on the money line is your way to go.

If you’re betting the Rams to cover the spread, tread carefully. They’re just 5-9-2 against the spread this season, the fourth-worst record in the NFL – though the Seahawks aren’t much better at 7-9.

If the Rams need some added motivation, they can play spoiler against Seattle this weekend. If the Rams beat the Seahawks, they’ll be eliminated from playoff contention, so they can prevent their rival from making the postseason.
