- It’s a showdown between NFC West rivals as the Seattle Seahawks face the Los Angeles Rams
- Current record: 11-6, +7.86 units won
- The best prop wagers to play out of this tilt are listed below
The Seattle Seahawks and Los Angeles Rams sure enjoy playing against the rest of the NFL. Against the rest of the NFC West, however, is entirely different.
The Seahawks are leading the division at 6-2 but Seattle is just a .500 team (1-1) within the NFC West. That’s a bit concerning for them, considering they face the Rams on Sunday and another division rival in the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday.
This will be just the second game against NFC West opposition for the 5-3 Rams. They lost 24-16 to San Francisco in that lone intra-division contest.
The Rams are 2.5-point home favorites for this game with a 4:25pm EST kickoff. Check out our updated injury reports, as well as other betting options. Let’s start with the lines for player props.

All props taken Nov. 14th from DraftKings/FanDuel/BetMGM
Prop #1: Wilson Will Come to Pass
While it’s true that the Rams are the NFL’s #2 pass defense (197.1 yards per game), the fact of the matter is that Seattle’s run game is null and void. Running backs Chris Carson (foot) and Carlos Hyde (hamstring) are both uncertain for Sunday.
Without them, the Seahawks have rushed for just 158 yards over the past two weeks. That includes a season-low 57 yards in last week’s 44-34 loss to the Buffalo Bills.
Know it’s just a stat, but 32-8 after a loss is more just coincidence. If form holds, Russell Wilson is going to have a bonkers bounce-back game in LA.
Now about that #Seahawks defense… https://t.co/2ohS8NbwY4
— Gregg Bell (@gbellseattle) November 14, 2020
That means Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson will have no choice but to throw into the firing line. He’s clicking for 26.3 completions per game this season. He’s gone over 25.5 completions three games in a row, averaging 29.3 completions over that three-week span.
Pick: Russell Wilson over 25.5 completions (+101), 1 unit.
Prop #2: Brown Will Carry The Load
Seattle’s next two opponents – the Rams (31.37 carries per game) and Arizona (31.62 cpg) – run the ball more than any teams in the NFC. For the Rams, Malcolm Brown is a big part of the run game, and he appears to be developing into an even bigger piece as the season progresses.
Malcolm Brown hit the Pete Weber celebration 🤣
— NFL on ESPN (@ESPNNFL) October 31, 2020
Brown has carried the ball 10 times in each of the last two games. Prior to that, he hadn’t been given double-digit carries since the first two weeks of the season.
However, Brown has gone over 6.5 carries in seven of eight games this season. He carries per game work out to 9.37.
Pick: Malcolm Brown over 6.5 carries (-130), 1 unit.
