Los Angeles vs Seattle Totals Pick – Stats

The Los Angeles Rams are averaging 23.3 PPG. At the same time, the Seattle Seahawks are outpacing their opponents, scoring 28.7 PPG. The LA defense is tight, allowing opponents merely, 18.5 PPG. Seattle’s D is also fairly stingy, as it’s giving up 23.2 PPG. At quarterback, Wilson could have a tough time putting points on the scoreboard, as he’s prone to the sack. Plus, he’s up against what is the best pass rush in the NFL. As a result, we expect Seattle’s point production to be hampered. At the same time, the Rams have an offense that is less than dynamic. In addition, the Seattle defense is good enough to keep the Ram point total low.
