The Seattle Seahawks are one of the best teams in the National Football League and the odds on favorite to win the Super Bowl.

The NFL odds for this game opened up with the home team listed as double digit favorites. The Seahawks are labeled as (-10.5) point favorites for this season finale against the hard charging Rams. The betting public believes that the Hawks will rebound after their first road loss since drafting Russell Wilson as over 69 percent of the betting is on the home team. Despite that influx of wagering, the line has actually dropped a half a point and it can now be found at Seattle (-10) at several of the top rated online sportsbooks.
The Rams are winning with defense. Robert Quinn only added to the already great résumé against the Bucs, racking up three more sacks and six tackles. In the process, Quinn became the franchise’s single-season leader for sacks, besting Kevin Carter’s previous record of 17 by one. Quinn’s 18 sacks now lead the NFL in that category, and he remains tied with Indianapolis’ Robert Mathis in forced fumbles with seven. He could cause some big problems for Wilson and Co.
