Today I wanted to explore the experts pick for the matchup between the Rams and the Seahawks. The Rams, as Ryan reports earlier, are 3 point favorites by the spread. The majority of people are picking the Seahawks to cover the spread. Let's look at the experts take.
ESPN 3/8 pick the Rams. Accurscore, which is 100-46 picked the Seahawks.
CBSSports- 4/5 pick the Rams, but 4 our of 5 also picked the Jets...just saying.
USA Today- 5/8 pick the Rams.
Yahoo Sports- 3/4 go with the Rams. Seeing a trend? Mike Silver, who is a whopping 102-45!!, picked the Seahawks to win.
Also all of TST writers, but one, him being Mike, picked the Rams to win this week, with the spread being even. What can I say? We at least got to believe...right?
After running some numbers I figured out that 60% of the experts from the mentioned sites, excluding TST, picked the Rams. According to the experts and the spread, the Rams are the favorites this week. It's going to be a very close game and it should be fun to watch.
