TNF Same-Game Parlay Picks: Los Angeles Rams vs Seattle Seahawks
The Los Angeles Rams showed their first signs of flaw with a loss to Arizona in Week 4. The offense only scored 20 points, which was a season-low for them, and defensively they were no match for the best offense in football allowing Arizona to put up 37.
It was the first time that Sean McVay lost to the Cardinals in his coaching career. As for Seattle, they avoided losing three in a row with a win over the San Francisco 49ers. It was a weird day for the Seahawks offense though as Russell Wilson only threw for 149 yards on 23 attempts.
Still, they were able to find the endzone four times in a 28-21 win over their division rival. Now on Thursday Night Football, they’ll try to beat Los Angeles. Here’s a three-leg parlay I carved up for you to try to win you some cash.
Leg 1: Matthew Stafford Over 249.5 yards
In every single game this year, Matthew Stafford has gone over 250 yards. In fact, in 14 of his last 20 games, he’s cleared that number. With how the Rams offense is working, even on their worst days, 250 yards should be a breeze for Stafford.
When you look at the defense they’re going up against it makes me feel even more confident. The Seahawks defense is a long way removed from the Legion of Boom days as they’ve allowed the most yards in football and the fourth-most passing yards specifically.
In three of their four games they’ve allowed opponents to clear 300 passing yards and the one game they didn’t they still let an injured Carson Wentz clear the 250 number.
Leg 2: Cooper Kupp Anytime TD Scorer
Last week was the first time all season the Cooper Kupp didn’t get into the endzone. He didn’t play well at all in Week 4 with just five catches on 13 targets. In every game so far this year he’s received double-digit targets so it’s hard to imagine that changes on Thursday.
He’s by far Matthew Stafford’s favorite target and if the passing game is working, which there’s no reason to believe that it won’t, he should find his way into the endzone. 45 percent of Stafford’s touchdown passes have gone to Kupp, you have to like your chances on this one.
Leg 3: Rams -2.5
Seattle used to be this extremely tough place to play but that’s not really the case anymore. The Seahawks are just 8-10 against the spread since 2019 at home. As for the Rams, well they’ve been really good in the McVay era after a loss. They’re 13-7-1 for a 65 percent cover percentage.
They’ve also covered 58.3 percent of their games on the road during that time as well. Looking at these two teams, the Rams are clearly better on paper. Is this a team that’s going to lose two in a row to divisional opponents?
I look at Week 4 as more of a fluke for Los Angeles and with the Seahawks issues on defense, the Rams should be able to get into the 30+ range for points. As long as they win by a field goal they cover, so I’ll take the road favorite in this one.
