Seattle Seahawks vs Los Angeles Rams: 3 Best 'Thursday Night Football' Prop Bets

It is very rare that we get a "Thursday Night Football" matchup as good as tonight's NFC West showdown between the Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks. 

As is our tradition, we've found our favorite prop bets for tonight's tilt. If everyone behaves, I may throw in the best bet of the night as well, sound good?

Let's wrap up the boring part of this and get to the props. Please remember to always gamble responsibly.

FanDuel: Robert Woods UNDER 59.5 Receiving Yards (-110)

In his first year with the Rams, Matthew Stafford has taken a liking to Cooper Kupp, Van Jefferson and Tyler Higbee. That's left Robert Woods out to dry in this offense.

Woods has been targeted just 25 times this season, reaching this receiving prop only once in four games. And even though the Seahawks' secondary has been bad all season, don't expect Woods to have a big game in what could be a pass-happy 'Hawks attack. 

The squeaky wheel, in this case, won't get the grease. 

Barstool: Matthew Stafford OVER 296.5 Passing Yards (-113)

The Rams laid an egg last week against the Cardinals but it wasn't all Stafford's fault. The defense has now given up at least 24 points in three straight games, which will force the Rams to pass tonight. 

The Seahawks defense has given up 30 or more points twice this season and they rank 28th in passing yards per game. The Seahawks defense is not good and the Rams will take advantage.

Los Angeles' defense isn't that great, either, so if this game turns into a back-and-forth slugfest, Stafford should easily hit this total, as he has done twice this season.

DraftKings: Tyler Lockett Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+100)

Despite being slowed down by a knee injury, Tyler Lockett can still be relied on as long as he's in the lineup. 

The All-Pro receiver has dominated on Thursday games, hauling in 31 passes for 414 yards and four touchdowns in his career. We can expect shutdown corner Jalen Ramsey to shadow D.K. Metcalf, which should open up plenty of opportunities for Lockett. 

If this game turns into a shootout, Lockett should find paydirt easily. The +100 odds make it really attractive. If you like to live life on the edge, Lockett's odds of being the first touchdown scorer are +850.

Bovada: Best Bet: Over 54

Usually, I give my best spread of the night through Bovada. Well, I am calling an audible tonight and switching to the total. This game features two really bad defenses and two explosive offenses, which is the perfect recipe for an over. 

The Seahawks allow the most yards in the NFL and the Rams allow the sixth-most yards. Both teams are in the top 10 in scoring offenses and each defense is giving up around 25 points per game. Scoring should not be a problem tonight and this total should go over pretty easily if both teams play like they have been all season long.
