Seattle Seahawks @ St. Louis Rams – Sunday, September 30
Sport betting line: Seattle -2.5
Why Seattle Will Win
If you want to make a winning bet on this game, here's why you might want to pick the Seahawks: This young and talented team is still out to prove itself, and road wins are the key to having everyone else in the pro football community know that this team is for real. A smart coach like Pete Carroll is going to be aware of this idea and express it to his team so that it knows how important it is for the Seahawks to win games like this. So far this season, a certain degree of resilience has been the real key for this team.
The Seahawks have bounced back from adversity and have plugged ahead without fearing failure. Their coaching staff continues to get a lot of buy-in from its players because Carroll and the front office have assembled a young and hungry roster that responds very well to instruction. This is a coachable team, unlike several other NFL squads that tune out their coaching staffs (such as the ones in San Diego, Cleveland and Carolina).
Why St. Louis Will Win
When NFL betting students settle in and assess this game, they might consider the Rams for these reasons: Nobody likes to be under .500, and even though this team is not stacked with big and powerful forms of talent, there are good players on the Rams' roster, especially on defense. Despite the bad loss to the Chicago Bears in week three, it needs to be said that the Rams were only four points behind in the third quarter before losing touch in the fourth quarter. The Rams also played in two tightly contested games before this loss to Chicago, pulling out a close win against the Washington Redskins.
They will feel like they need to win this contest to prove to themselves and everyone else that they can hold their own this season, unlike 2011, in which everything collapsed. The one thing that might give the Rams a serious edge is that this team has more experienced players mixed in with the newer and younger talent it also has on the roster. The Seahawks have a youth movement, while the Rams are going to rack up more draft picks in the future as a result of their deal with the Washington Redskins this past spring.
Who Will Win
The youth of the Seahawks and the experience of Pete Carroll are just too great a combination to ignore. It will probably be too much for the Rams, even though the game will go down to the wire. Seattle's defensive competence should be able to limit St. Louis' offense… enough, at any rate, to push the Seahawks across the finish line first.
