Seattle Seahawks vs. Los Angeles Rams Prop Bets – NFL Week 15 Props

Seattle Seahawks vs. Los Angeles Rams Prop Bets – NFL Week 15 Props

Week 15 of the NFL schedule will finally end in Philadelphia and Washington on Tuesday night. Two games are scheduled for Tuesday night, with kick-off scheduled at 7:00 p.m. EST. There were too many Covid positive tests for both teams, so the league rearranged the schedule.

This is the first time we’ve had Tuesday football in 2021. Games were being pushed back to Tuesday as part of last year and expected. The fact that we made it to Week 15 without a Tuesday game can be seen as a win in a way.

The NFL has to hang on a little while longer, but we’re entering the most important phase of the season. Covid outbreaks are not what the NFL needs come playoff time. The regular-season finale is shaping up to be an extension of the playoffs.

Things are so tight in the NFL that it looks like it’s going to take the final week to decide who is going to the postseason. The Seahawks hope to be a team that is alive in the final week of the regular season. It’s very slim that Seattle gets in, but they’re not statistically dead at 5-8 yet.

The Rams head into tonight with a chance to join the Arizona Cardinals at 10-4. Matthew Stafford’s former team helped the Rams out with a win over the Cardinals on Sunday. The Rams have a Lions’ draft pick, so Stafford losing would help the Lions.

Van Jefferson Longest Reception

Van Jefferson has developed into a favorite of Matthew Stafford’s when he looks deep. The absence of Robert Woods has made Jefferson’s presence on the field for the Rams even more important.

Woods hasn’t played since November 7 against the Tennessee Titans. Jefferson was asked to do more in the wake of Woods’ injury. He answered the call in the Rams’ offense. Jefferson is going into Tuesday night with 41 receptions, 679 yards, and 6 touchdowns.

His greatest ability is to find room in deep routes in the secondary. Jefferson is continually averaging big numbers per reception. In two of his last three assignments, he had yards per reception of 31 and 29 yards.

Jefferson has recorded at least 18 yards per reception in four of his last six games. On the season, he has a whopping 16.6 yards per reception on a total of 41 receptions. This puts him in the top-10 of receivers in the NFL.

Seattle has been abysmal in the secondary, with quarterbacks passing for an average of 278.9 yards per game. Expect Jefferson to have at least one reception for more than 20 yards. That puts the Seahawks dead last in the NFL.

Matthew Stafford Total Passing Yards

The Seahawks look like an opponent for Matthew Stafford to have some fun. While the Seahawks have been playing better football recently, it doesn’t take away that their secondary is not good by any means.

Seattle has allowed big plays often this season, and Stafford should be able to pick his way through their defense at home. The Seahawks are 32nd in the NFL with 278.9 passing yards allowed per game.

They have a bend don’t break mentality. The Seahawks have conceded 20.2 points per game but giving up the yardage.

Stafford is going into Tuesday night with 3,898 yards, 33 touchdowns, and 9 interceptions on 67.3% completions. He’s been hot over his last three outings, with 9 touchdowns and 1 interception.

Stafford has passed for 884 yards during that time for an average of 295 yards per game. Against the Seahawks’ secondary inside at SoFi Stadium, expect Stafford to touch just OVER 300 yards on the stat sheet.

Russell Wilson Total Completions

The Rams are not the easiest of teams in the NFL to run the ball on. This could be a Russell Wilson game where he has to step up and perform.

The Rams are 23rd in the NFL with 246.5 passing yards against per game. However, they’ve held up well versus the run with Aaron Donald causing havoc.

They go into Tuesday night with 100.6 rushing yards allowed per game for seventh in the NFL. I have confidence in the Rams scoring points, so Wilson will have to keep up.

Wilson has passed for 2,302 yards, 16 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions on 66.6% completions. He had 37 attempts and 30 completions versus the 49ers in a 30-23 win two weeks back. I could see something similar.

Are the Seahawks getting out of SoFi Stadium with a win? Maybe not, but the Seahawks will likely depend on Wilson heavily tonight.
