Seahawks vs. Cardinals Odds
Two NFC West rivals collide tonight when the Arizona Cardinals face the Seattle Seahawks at 8:30PM ET on NBC. Here’s a breakdown of the contest.
According to the oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Cardinals are a slim favorite at home, as they are getting odds of -1 point against the Seahawks. The over/under total for the contest has been listed at 43.5 points. Seattle has won and covered the spread in three of the last four meetings and the two have hit the under in three of their last five encounters.
The Seahawks are riding a 3-game win streak coming into this week to move to 4-1 on the season. Despite the wins, they are just 2-3 against the spread this year. The offense isn’t quite as productive as it has been in the past, as the Seahawks are averaging just 21 points and 368.6 yards per game. The Seattle run game has definitely taken a step back without Marshawn Lynch in the mix, averaging only 88.8 yards per game. Russell Wilson hasn’t been much of a threat on the ground this season due to ankle and knee injuries as well. However, he is still moving the ball well through the air, throwing for 1,334 yards with just one interception. He does have just five touchdowns, though. Defensively, Seattle continues to be one of the best units in football, allowing just 15.6 points and 302.6 yards per game. They also remain very diligent against the run, giving up just 74.6 yards on the ground. The defense also has 16 sacks with six turnovers. The defense could be without Kam Chancellor tonight, who is doubtful with a groin injury.
Arizona has won two straight games entering tonight to get to 3-3 on the season. The Cardinals are also 3-3 against the spread, covering in all three victories. The Cardinals are 4-2 with the under as well, as they also bring a tremendous defense to the field. The Cardinals are giving up only 17.3 points and 313.8 yards per game on the year. They are one of the top pass defenses in the NFL, allowing just 209.8 yards per game through the air. The defense already has nine interceptions in 2016 to go with a total of 14 turnovers and 19 sacks. Offensively, Arizona is averaging 25.5 points and 382.2 yards per game. Turnovers have been somewhat of a problem for them as Carson Palmer has thrown five interceptions and the QB position has seven altogether. Palmer has 1,363 yards and seven touchdowns on the year, but the star of the offense is back David Johnson, who has run for 568 yards and eight touchdowns while catching 20 passes for 265 yards.
