Steven_Jackson_WIDE0211NFL betting lines have the Seattle Seahawks favored by 7.5 points with a total of 41 against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. The Seahawks are looking to bounce back from a poor 2008 season in NFL betting odds and may be able to do so with a healthy Matt Hasselbeck.

NFL betting lines have this as a matchup between two new head coaches as Jim Mora Jr. leads the Seahawks while Steve Spagnuolo leads the Rams. The Rams still have Marc Bulger at quarterback and Steven Jackson running the ball but not much else. Bulger is fourth in franchise history with 117 touchdown passes while the Rams are 7-3 in games when Jackson runs more than 25 times a game. In the last 12 games of last season he averaged 118.4 yards per game from scrimmage. The defense for St. Louis is led by Oshiomoghe Atogwe who has the most interceptions in the NFC since 2007 as sports betting indicates.

Things are bright on the Seattle side in NFL betting odds with the enthusiasm of Mora. He gets Hasselbeck healthy and the addition of T.J. Houshmandzadeh is huge. Houshmandzadeh has more catches than any receiver in the league over the past three years. The running game even looks decent with Julius Jones and new addition Edgerrin James. On defense the Seahawks get first round pick Aaron Curry to team with Lofa Tatupu at linebacker and impact NFL betting lines.

Seattle has won 12 of the 21 all-time NFL betting lines meetings against the Rams including eight in a row. The Seahawks won 37-13 and 23-20 last season in the two games.

The Rams are 6-13 in NFL betting lines in their last 19 games as an underdog. The Rams are 6-20-1 in NFL betting lines in their last 27 games in September. The Rams are 1-7 versus NFL betting odds in their last 8 vs. NFC West. The Rams are 0-4 versus NFL betting lines in the last 4 meetings between the two teams.

The Seahawks are 7-2 versus NFL betting odds in their last 9 games as a home favorite. The Seahawks are 1-4-1 versus NFL betting lines in their last 6 vs. the NFC.

The Under is 4-1-1 in NFL betting lines in the Rams last 6 games as an underdog. The Over is 5-1-1 in the Seahawks last 7 games as a home favorite in NFL betting lines. The Under is 6-2-1 in the Seahawks last 9 games overall in NFL betting lines at the sportsbook.
