Not a "lock" or goy", just a game I really like. Ive been wrong many times before.....


I dont do "units" on here, but will break it down how I have bet it:


Seattle -9.5 -120  15*

Seattle TT O26  7.5*

STL doesnt win a Half -149 4*

Seattle wins both Halfs +110 3*

STL doesnt win a Quarter +225  2*

Seattle wins 3 quarters +210 2*

Seattle wins 4 quarters +750 1*

Seattle winning margin:

21-25 +1100 .5*

26-30 +1600 .5*

31-35 +2200 .5*

36 or more +3300 .5*



Gotta strike while the iron is hot. I wont bore you with stats like Seattle is unbeaten at home, is averaging over 40 ppg their last 4 games while giving up only 12.....Rams have won 3 straight road games , however, this is their 1st b2b roadie all year and it happens to be on the extreme other side of the USA.....Seattle with everything to play for, and SF will be playing at the same time so no way to sandbag.....



I smell a 41-10 game

You have to wonder how motivated the Hawks will be. They know San frAn ain't losing to the Cards at home. They know they have a HUGE game next week. Lose next week and the last 3 games mean nothing. I know people will say they won't let the foot off the gas as you never know in the NFL but how can you really be sure there won't be a mental letdown in his spot? The truth is you can't. No play for me...

A very typical spot where teams can count-on to tank, and this happens every year with some-of the largest upsets coming in this spot.

Teams coming of a series of wins and covers, then coming off a big win over a top team in a very meaningful game and playing a team with a losing record that appears easy to beat.

Seattle expended sssoooo much focus, intensity and energy to get all those game and then beat the 49ers in basically a must-win-game.

It is very unlikely Seattle can match that kind of energy, intensity and focus this weak against a weaker op.

The Rams would be one-of my strongest plays this year, what could be a possible out-right upset...........................................

There's no reason to think the Hawks will take the foot off the pedal, while it's unlikely a Hawks win and a 49ers loss results in Seattle winning the division.

I like the play. I'm just taking them ML in a bunch of parlays.

Two coaches who I can't see taking their foot off the gas are Belicheck and Carroll.

Plus, Seattle's defense alone will win this game. I also see a big win. I like SEA to cover. BOL

I agree. Instead of dropping my whole play on the spread, I like to spread it around with some + money plays and try to maximize my value if I am indeed correct.

But, the Rams may win SU, it is the NFL after all .

Seattle at home - with a coach who never takes his foot off the gas pedal - against a team with zilch to play for - equals a blowout win for the 'Hawks.  Yes, some teams in the spot Seattle is in would fade - but not the 'Hawks.  

Train has hit the nail on the head.

But good luck with your bet nonetheless.

Seattle wins 41-14.

Seattle is not a fluke.

I saw a tweet from Pete Carroll asking the crowd to be louder than last week.....but yeah, they will have a letdown

Out right upset? ... You should probably go take a long look in the mirror and find out what else you might be deceiving yourself about in life.

Alot of you guys need to read books by guys like Bill Parcels and Jimmy Johnslon, they talk about this quite a bit.

It's the players who get all giddy coming off wins and big wins and the coach has no control over this, has nothing to do with a coach who doesn't take his foot off the gas, it's the players who must respond with intensity and energy in this game and it's highly' highly likely they won't. 

Can't wait for sunday, see you all then....................................................
