ASK THE TRADER

August 18, 2023

The NFL regular season is just three weeks away, so why not take an early look at the action that has been coming in? One Week 1 spread has seen over 90% of the handle on one team to cover, and that’s the NFC West showdown between the Rams ???? and Seahawks.

We asked NFL analyst Ethan Useloff for his thoughts ???? on why this underdog has been getting so much early love.

ASK THE TRADER: “I think this is more of a buy-low on the Rams. Los Angeles is still a season removed from a spectacular Super Bowl ???? run, coached by its same standout coach in Sean McVay. Cooper Kupp and Matthew Stafford are expected to bounce back closer to their 2021 selves after injury-ridden 2022 campaigns. Though the Seahawks are always dangerous at home, bettors are gladly taking the points and are expecting a close game between the two division rivals. We just moved this line a few days ago from Seahawks -6 to -5.5 due to the Rams action.”
