Making sports betting picks is one of my specialties, and today at Cappers Info, I’m making my Sunday Football Tipster pick based upon the football trends and NFL odds for the St. Louis Rams vs. Seattle Seahawks game on Sunday, December 30th at CenturyLink Field at 4:25 p.m. ET.
St. Louis Rams (7-7-1, 10-5 ATS) +11
Seattle Seahawks (10-5, 11-4 ATS) -11
Six of the last nine games that the Rams have played have gone beyond the ‘total’, many of which easily got there. Granted, I know that four of those ‘over’ games got there that were listed in the mid- to high-30s, and this one is in the low-40s. Remember too, that the Seattle offense has put up 150 points over the course of the last three games. There’s no way that I can expect 50 points to get on the board in this one, but to ask for 24 doesn’t seem to be out of the question, especially with the way that St. Louis has struggled against the run at times.
With the ‘over’ established, I need another play for my teaser, and I think that playing the Rams is the better of the two sides. There’s a decent chance that the 49ers could be blowing away the Cardinals when push comes to shove, and if that turns out to be the case, Head Coach Pete Carroll might ultimately be sitting down some of his players. QB Russell Wilson has to get ready for his first playoff game next week, and there won’t be anywhere to go if San Fran wins at The Stick in a game running concurrently.
On top of that, Seattle is just overrated right now. The team is a lot better now than it was a month ago, but these last three wins have been ridiculous and it has to stop. The Rams are a reasonable team that will fight to the death regardless of what the score of the game is. It’s tough to get beaten by 17+ points in this league, especially when you’re talking about a team that competed for a playoff spot this year.
