Before we dive into tonight's NFL matchups, a quick update on Bowl Games...
Bowl Game dogs are off to a 5-3 ATS start. Bowl dogs that are playing a team who missed a Bowl Game the previous season are 3-0 ATS. These teams are roughly 59% ATS the past decade. Both of today's dogs match this system (Kent State 3.5 vs Wyoming and UTSA 3 vs San Diego State).
7 p.m. ET: Seattle Seahawks at Los Angeles Rams
This game was rescheduled from Sunday to today due to COVID 19 positives on both sides. The Seahawks (5-8 SU, 7-6 ATS) have won two straight games and just waxed the Texans 33-13, easily covering as 9.5-point road favorites. Similarly, the Rams (9-4 SU, 6-7 ATS) have won two straight and are coming off a big primetime upset win over the Cardinals 30-23, winning outright as 3-point road dogs. This line originally opened with Los Angeles listed as a 7-point home favorite. With the Rams placing 29 players in COVID protocol, the line fell to 4.5. But once the game was moved and more Rams players were removed from the list, the line shot back up to Rams -7. The Seahawks have COVID issues of their own, with nine players in protocol. Road dogs 7 or less are 61-27 ATS (69%) this season. Russell Wilson is 25-12 ATS (68%) in his career as a dog. Road divisional dogs are 25-16 ATS (61%). Shawn Hochuli, the lead ref, has historically favored road teams (35-22 ATS, 61%). These teams met back on October 7 and the Rams won 26-17 in Seattle.
7 p.m. ET: Washington Football Team at Philadelphia Eagles
This NFC East clash was also pushed back from Sunday to tonight due to COVID. Washington (6-7 SU, 5-8 ATS) just fell to the Cowboys 27-20, failing to cover as 6.5-point home dogs. The loss snapped a four-game winning streak for Washington. Meanwhile, the Eagles (6-7 SU, 7-6 ATS) have won three of their last four games and just dismissed the Jets 33-18, easily covering as 5-point road favorites. This line opened with Philadelphia listed as a 4-point home favorite. With Washington placing 23 players in COVID protocol, we saw this line balloon up to Eagles -7. With Washington's COVID outlook improving, the line has settled down at Eagles -6.5. Philadelphia has a big rest advantage, as the Eagles are coming off a bye and Washington played on Sunday. Favorites off a bye are roughly 57% ATS over the past decade. The Eagles will likely be a popular teaser play (-6.5 to -0.5). If both Taylor Heinicke and Brandon Allen are both out, practice squader Kyle Shurmur could start at quarterback for WFT.
