Week 5 Thursday Night Football Betting Preview

Los Angeles Rams vs. Seattle Seahawks
Date: Thursday, October 7, 2021
8:20 p.m. EST
Lumen Field — Seattle, Wash.
Coverage: FOX/NFL Network

The Rams are coming off their first loss of the season, as they made a couple of costly mistakes and could not force the Cardinals to make any. They will look to get back on track Thursday and establish a rhythm early. However, they should feel good about where they are regardless, with games against the Giants, Lions and Texans to finish October.

While this game is not a must-win for the Seahawks either, it is a more important game for them. They are 2-2 with matchups against the Steelers, Saints, Jaguars, Packers and Cardinals next on the schedule. To keep on-brand with previous seasons, the Seahawks offense has been solid while the defense has yet to show up. With a home prime-time matchup, this is a game where Jamal Adams, the league’s highest-paid safety, needs to play well. However, the Seahawks have trends on their side. Since 2012, which is the start of Russell Wilson’s career, Seattle is 19-3 in home night games — the best record in the league during that span.

Rams vs. Seahawks NFL Best Bets & Player Props

Seahawks +2.5 (-110, BetMGM)

We are using the new Awesemo NFL Betting Model to figure out what the best bet for Thursday Night Football is tonight. According to the model, betting on the home team and Wilson’s strong primetime record is the best choice. While the model gives the Rams a 52% chance to win the game, the expected margin of victory is only 1.5 points. The tool also shows a better ROI for betting the Seahawks’ spread.

Chris Carson Over 46.5 Yards Rushing (-110, Caesars)

Using the OddsShopper tool, we can filter by our two teams tonight and sort by the bets that have the highest probability of winning. Betting Chris Carson over this rushing total tops the list, with an 82% win probability. The largest risk involved with this bet is the status of Carson, as he is questionable with a neck injury. However, if he is ruled active, this rushing line should not move. Check his status and shop the odds prior to kickoff.

Freddie Swain Under 2.5 Receptions (-179, BetMGM)

The bet with the second-highest win probability is Seahawks receiver Freddie Swain going under 2.5 receptions. Awesemo gives this prop a 75% chance to hit. Swain has gone under this receiving prop total twice this season already, and Awesemo projects him to do so for the third time tonight.
