The Seattle Seahawks (12-4) will look to win their fifth consecutive game as they host the Los Angeles Rams (10-6) on Saturday afternoon in the NFL Wild Card round. These two NFC West teams split their regular season meetings and the Seahawks head into this one as 3.5-point favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL betting odds.

It'll be interesting to see how the Rams compete in this one as they are likely without starting quarterback Jared Goff. Here is what the experts are predicting to happen in the Rams-Seahawks Wild Card showdown.
