3 Best Prop Bets for Rams vs Seahawks NFC Wild Card Game
By Max Staley
The Los Angeles Rams take on the Seattle Seahawks in what's shaping up to be one of the most unpredictable matchups of the Wild Card Round. Seattle is currently a 3-point favorite over Los Angeles, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL playoff odds.
If you're looking to get a little more creative with your wagering this weekend, there are a ton of NFL prop bets available on FanDuel Sportsbook. Here are three of the best prop bets for this Rams-Seahawks clash.
Rams vs Seahawks Prop Bets
3. Russell Wilson - Passing Yards: Under 252.5 (-112)
After looking like he had the MVP locked up in the first half, Russell Wilson's production has fallen off a cliff. Since Week 10, the Seahawks' signal-caller is averaging just 208.9 passing yards per game. He's only reached 250 passing yards once during that eight-game run, and in two appearances against this defense, he's averaging just 236.5 yards per game. Facing arguably the league's best pass defense, it's tough to see Wilson's production picking up much in the Wild Card Round.
2. Cooper Kupp - Receiving Yards: Under 52.5 (-112)
Cooper Kupp is the No. 1 option in the Rams' passing attack, but this team might not be moving the ball much this weekend. For one, Jared Goff might not play. Even if he does, he's likely not going to be anywhere near 100%. And Seattle's defense has really turned the corner lately. From Week 9-16, the Seahawks surrendered the league's third-fewest points per game. As for Kupp, he's hit the under on this total in two of his last three outings, averaging 46.0 receiving yards per game in that time.
1. DK Metcalf - Receiving Yards: Under 60.5 (-112)
Betting against arguably the NFL's most physically imposing wide receiver is a scary proposition, but it's tough to like DK Metcalf's prospects here. He's faced superstar CB Jalen Ramsey twice this season, averaging 43.5 receiving yards per game across those two and failing to reach 60 yards in both instances. Believe it or not, that's actually a pretty solid feat against Ramsey, who is surrendering 23.6 yards per game in coverage this season.
