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.
