Los Angeles Rams @ Seattle Seahawks

4:25 PM

SEA -1 (-111)

O/U 47.5 (-108)


Los Angeles is 12-5 ATS in its last 17 road games.

Seattle is 12-3 SU in its last 15 home games vs Los Angeles.

The UNDER is 6-0 in Seattle’s last 6 games.


Los Angeles News & Notes

With the top spot in the NFC West on the line in Week 16, perhaps the Rams got caught last weekend looking ahead to this matchup against the Seahawks. Los Angeles found itself down 13-3 at halftime against the lowly New York Jets and trailing 23-10 heading into the fourth quarter. The previously winless Jets held on for a 23-20 win, pulling off one of the biggest upsets in NFL history over the Rams, who were 17-point favorites at home.

Despite the loss, the Rams still control their own destiny for the top spot in the NFC West. Los Angeles defeated Seattle 23-16 back on November 15, so with another win on Sunday, the two teams would have matching 10-5 SU records but the Rams would hold the head-to-head tiebreaker. Conversely, a loss to the Seahawks could put Los Angeles at risk of missing the playoffs entirely.


LA Rams are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 9 of LA Rams' last 11 games.

LA Rams are 10-5 SU in their last 15 games.

LA Rams are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games against Seattle.


Seattle News & Notes

One week after breezing to a 40-3 win over the Jets, the Seahawks grinded out a 20-15 victory over the Washington Football Team on Sunday as 6-point favorites. Seattle fell to 3-7 ATS over its last 10 games with the ATS loss but clinched a playoff spot with its 10th win of the season. Russell Wilson, Carlos Hyde and Chris Carson all rushed for over 50 yards in the victory.

The Seahawks would love to win this game and clinch a home game in the first round of the playoffs. Seattle is 6-1 SU and 5-2 ATS at home this season compared to a 4-3 SU and 2-5 ATS record on the road. Wilson has a quarterback rating of 118.9 at home with 24 touchdowns and four interceptions while recording a rating of 96.2 with 13 touchdown passes and nine picks on the road.


Seattle are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Seattle's last 6 games.

Seattle are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Seattle's last 6 games against LA Rams.



Philadelphia Eagles @ Dallas Cowboys

8:20 PM

PHI -3 (-112)

O/U 50 (-108)


The Eagles are 5-10 ATS in their last 15 games.

The Cowboys are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games.

The UNDER is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.


Philadelphia News & Notes

It has come to this for the Eagles: Wins over the Cowboys and Washington, a Washington loss to Carolina this week and a Giants defeat to Baltimore earlier Sunday afternoon will give Philadelphia the division title. And they have to be feeling good about the chances of taking care of their own business thanks to the emergence of sensational rookie quarterback Jalen Hurts.

Since replacing Carson Wentz as the starter two games ago, Hurts has completely transformed the Eagles offense. The Oklahoma standout has thrown for 505 yards and four TDs while adding 169 rushing yards and a score, leading the Eagles to a stunning win over New Orleans and a narrow loss to Arizona. The one strike: he has completed just 55.1 percent of his pass attempts.


Philadelphia are 5-10 ATS in their last 15 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Philadelphia's last 8 games.

Philadelphia are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games.

Philadelphia are 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games against Dallas.



Dallas News & Notes

Something has finally clicked with the Cowboys offense – and it has them very much in the postseason picture after a 1-6 SU stretch had effectively left them for dead. It was an unusual suspect playing the hero last time out, with backup running back Tony Pollard racking up 132 total yards and a pair of touchdowns in place of the injured Ezekiel Elliott.

How the Cowboys divide up the work between Elliott and Pollard in Week 16 (if Zeke returns) is one storyline for bettors and daily fantasy players to monitor. Another intriguing subplot: how well the Dallas offensive line fares against a Philadelphia pass rush that ranks tied for second in the NFL with 44 sacks through 14 games. The Cowboys have surrendered just five sacks in their last three outings.


Dallas are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Dallas' last 5 games.

Dallas are 4-8 SU in their last 12 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Dallas' last 8 games against Philadelphia.
