The NFC West is in the spotlight on Sunday Night as Seattle travels to LA to take on the Rams. Seattle jumped past San Francisco last week and they now hold the second seed in the NFC playoff race. This is a must win game for the Rams if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive. They are currently one game behind Minnesota for the final wild card spot and can’t afford any more losses. My top prop bets for Sunday Night Football are below.

Sunday Night Football Prop Bets
1. Seattle More First Downs (-117)
The Seahawks average 390 total yards per game and 143 yards per game on the ground. Russell Wilson is having an MVP caliber season and is the key to everything Seattle does on offense. The Rams played great last week in the blowout win over Arizona. Jared Goff had 424 yards and two touchdowns, but overall he has been average at best this season. Before the Cardinals game, the Rams scored 35 combined points in their previous three games. I trust Russell Wilson and the Seahawks offense much more in this spot.
2. Todd Gurley At Least 15 Carries (-117)
Sean McVay has made an effort to get Todd Gurley much more involved in the offense over the past three games. Two out of the past three games he’s had at least 19 carries which is a good sign heading into the final stretch of the season. Jared Goff has struggled this year, and if the Rams are going to make a push towards the playoffs Gurley will be the key. I expect another productive game from Gurley and he should get close to 20 carries.
3. Rashaad Penny At Least 46 Rushing Yards (-114)
The former first round pick has played well recently and is making an impact in the Seattle backfield. The Seahawks have the third ranked rushing attack in the league and Penny has 203 yards rushing over the past two games. Chris Carson is still the lead back, but it does look like Penny will start to share some of the load moving forward. In limited playing time this season, Penny has averaged 5.7 yards a carry and has at least 55 yards rushing in four games.
4. Jacob Hollister First Touchdown Scored (+1600)
Hollister has come out of nowhere and become a big part of the Seattle offense. Russell Wilson has targeted him 28 times in the past four games, and Hollister has 20 receptions with three touchdowns. He played 61 snaps in the win over Minnesota and Wilson is gaining confidence in him more and more each game. I’m taking a shot that Hollister scores the first touchdown Sunday Night at the Coliseum.
