The Rams enter Week 15 coming off arguably their biggest win of the season versus the Cardinals, which saw them improve to 9-4.
The Seahawks are coming off two straight wins, including a win over the 49ers, that have their playoff hopes hanging on by a thread. They are now 5-8 with a chance to push towards a playoff spot with a win on Tuesday.
Let’s dive into the Week 15 prop bets for this Tuesday Night rivalry matchup.

Seahawks vs Rams Prop Bets: NFL Week 15 Prop Betting Picks
Rams Over 25 Alternative Points Scored (-115) at Caesars
Wager: 1 Unit
With the player props unavailable (as of this writing) due to the uncertainty with the COVID protocols, I decided to go with two game props in its spot for both teams.
The Rams average more 28 points per game and are top 10 in scoring this season. While the last game against the Seahawks wasn’t high scoring, I expect the Rams to score more in this one.
The Over of the default alternative points scored setting is 25 for the Rams, and they went Over that on a short week in Seattle earlier in the year. Now, with the momentum the Rams are riding coming off the Monday Night Football win over the Cardinals, I would imagine they go Over 25 points at home against the Seahawks.
Go with what I would say is an easy bet, with the Rams Over 25 points scored in this game.

Seahawks Over 16.5 Alternative Points Scored (-180) at Caesars
Wager: 1 Unit
For the same reason stated above, we are going with the Seahawks Over 16.5 alternative points scored instead of a player prop.
Seattle scored 17 earlier in the year and have scored 30 or more over their last two games. This team averages over 20 points per game and the Rams defense gives up over 20 points per game.
It’s hard to know who exactly will be at Russell Wilson‘s disposal, but the Seahawks have enough to score at least 17 in this game against a rival they know well.
Double Result: Rams/Rams (+235) at Caesars

One should expect the Seattle Seahawks to compete on the road with their backs against the wall in regards to a playoff spot. However, I don’t think that equals them winning either the first half or the game outright, and so that is why I am going with the Rams in a double result here.
The Rams are undefeated when leading at halftime under Sean McVay. They got off to a slower start earlier in the year against Seattle on the road, but this time they have to be feeling a lot stronger, especially with the extra two days rest.
Even if Seattle got off to a good start, the Rams’ biggest approach to winning games is to get into the locker room with the lead and not give it up.
I don’t expect Seattle to stop Matthew Stafford and a Rams offense that will have Darrell Henderson back this week. I also don’t expect them to score a bunch against a defense that will have Jalen Ramsey back, and that’s coming off a huge dominating outing against the Cardinals.
Rams Winning Margin 7-12 Points (+375) at Caesars

The Rams are the better team and that’s not really up for debate. But the question remains in a rivalry game like this: can Seattle pull off the upset? Desperate teams are dangerous in December and the Seahawks did take down the 49ers just a couple of weeks ago.
The Rams are seven-point favorites. The way they responded and the heart they showed last week on Monday night, despite not having a bunch of key contributors and starters for the game, tells me they found another level to win.
With the Rams getting healthier for this game, odds are they should win by at least seven and then some.
Seattle has a lot to play for and they won’t go down easily, but I think the Rams control the game and win 31-19, which gives you the margin win on this play here.
