TNF Prop Bets Week 5: Top Value Bets for Rams at Seahawks

Look for Russell Wilson to throw under 274.5 passing yards against the Rams on Thursday Night Football

Los Angeles Rams (-2.5) at Seattle Seahawks – TNF Prop Bets

Here are our TNF Prop Bets for Week 5 of the NFL season, which kicks off with a huge NFC West battle with Los Angeles Rams (3-1) at Seattle Seahawks (2-2). This will be a rematch of last year’s Divisional Round matchup, with the Rams winning 30-20. Each of these teams actually played NFC West opponents in Week 4, with the Rams losing and the Seahawks getting the victory. In this article, I will identify the top three prop bets from the Rams-Seahawks. Let’s take a look:

Under 54.5 Points (-110 at bet365)

Each of the last five Seahawks-Rams meetings has gone under 54.5 points, and even though the Rams offense has gotten a high-powered makeover, I believe we’ll see six in a row in TNF. This is an inflated total, especially for a Thursday night game. As I mentioned at the top, both teams just played tough divisional matchups and that should keep things a little less exciting this time around and our Prop Bets picks indicate as much.

Russell Wilson: Under 274.5 Passing Yards (-110 at bet365)

Wilson has only thrown for 300+ once in 18 career meetings against the Rams. Even worse, he has only topped this mark in two of those 18. It will certainly be a lot more difficult for Wilson if RB Chris Carson can’t play in this game. If that’s the case, the Rams defense will be able to label the Seahawks as one-dimensional in the passing game and prepare a specific game plan for that. Even if Carson misses this game, I’d expect the Seahawks to still try and run the football with RB Alex Collins, albeit not very effectively.

Matt Gay: Over 7.5 Kicking Points (-125 at bet365)

If this will be a lower-scoring game, the kicking game should be a big factor. Gay is one of the better kickers in football, going 8-for-9 this season with a long of 53. In fact, he does have two field goals in each game this season. If he does that for the fifth straight week, all he needs is two extra points to get this done.
