Best Thursday Night Football bets: Seahawks-Rams

It's another big Thursday Night Football game, this time between the Seattle Seahawks and Los Angeles Rams, two NFC West rivals.

We've got a market report on the game from South Point director Chris Andrews and best bets from Adam Burke, William Hill and Dave Tuley as Week 3 kicks off.

Los Angeles Rams (-2.5, 54.5) at Seattle Seahawks

Market report from Chris Andrews: I opened the Rams -1.5. Sharps laid -1.5, laid -2 and some are still laying -2.5. I don’t want to go all the way to the key number of 3, but I’ll probably have to. There’s only been a trickle of Seattle money so far at less than a field goal. The public likes taking TV favorites on game day. Sportsbooks will be rooting for the dog here, like usual. I’ve had action both ways on my opening total of 54.5.  

Burke: The NFL schedule makers did the Rams and Seahawks dirty here. Back-to-back division games in the hard-nosed, hard-hitting NFC West and on a short week to boot. Even though these two teams get extra rest going into Week 6, I’d honestly consider fading both of them (Rams cross-country at Giants; Seahawks cross-country at Steelers).

As far as the game at hand here, I respect the sharp money on the Rams side and agree with it. Los Angeles caught no breaks last week against the Cardinals, but Arizona caught some breaks and took advantage of them. The teams were virtually even from a yards per play standpoint and the game turned on Sony Michel’s fumble early in the second quarter.
