Not in the Cards
The Arizona Cardinals enter this game coming off of a win that snapped a 2 game losing streak for them. The Cardinals are 4-2 SU this year but they are also 4-2 ATS and have a home ATS record of 1-1. The Cardinals have not faired well at home against the Seahawks in past years. They look to turn that fortune around with their new franchise quarterback, Kyler Murray. He leads this Cardinals offense with 309.5 passing yards, a 65.9% completion percentage, 10 touchdowns, and 6 interceptions. He is also a big dual-threat quarterback as he averages 61.7 rushing yards per game and has 6 rushing touchdowns on the season.
The Cardinals’ offense is averaging 161 rushing yards and 27.7 points per game. The Seahawks’ defense is allowing 370.4 passing yards, 100.8 rushing yards, and 22.5 points per game. This is a Seahawks defense that gets shredded through the air week after week. The Cardinals’ strength on offense is clearly their running game and they will try to use that to dictate the pace of the game. Their run game will help them move the ball through the air with more ease but, if this game turns into a shootout Murray will not be able to keep up with Wilson. This game should be lower scoring as it will be a tough divisional battle for both teams but, will still be a steep climb for the Cardinals despite being on their home field.
Seattle Seahawks vs Arizona Cardinals Pick:
The best current price on the Seahawks ATS is -3 at (-120) via PointsBet: This is a very important game for both teams. Either team has a shot at taking the division with solid records to start the season and all their divisional games are still left in front of them. Both teams have a lot of talent and will come to play hard here but, the Seahawks edge out the Cardinals for talent. The Cardinals will be missing key players on both sides of the ball, Chandler Jones missing will open up a hole for the Seahawks to run through. Hopkins is also injured and is likely to miss the game giving a huge blow to the Cardinals passing game. They haven’t won against the Seahawks at home since 2012 and the situation isn’t getting any easier for them. The Seahawks are covering ATS, they’re winning games by larger margins, and Wilson always finds a way to get it done in Arizona. Seahawks win and cover -3.5.
