Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Seahawks are 13-point favorites to beat the Cardinals. The total, meanwhile, sits at 38.5 points. As of this writing, 63% of the public betting tickets are on the Seahawks to cover the point spread.

Arizona Cardinals

Cardinals claimed S D.J. Swearinger off waivers from the Redskins. It means Swearinger made it by zero teams, as the Cardinals had the No. 1 waiver claim. That's not something you usually want to see when waiving a player. Swearinger is returning to Arizona after spending 2015-16 in the desert. Although prone to creating headaches for coaches, Swearinger has become a much more consistent player in recent years. He could be a 2019 starter for the Cardinals. That is the final year of his contract.

Seattle Seahawks

Seahawks signed head coach Pete Carroll to a contract extension through 2021. Carroll has been Seattle's head coach since 2010. He turns 70 before the end of this deal, so it's not unreasonable to think this could be Carroll's final head-coaching contract. The Seahawks have made the playoffs in 7-of-9 years on Carroll's watch, including consecutive Super Bowl berths in 2013 and 2014. They will enter this year's playoffs as one of the NFL's hottest and most-dangerous teams despite losing out to the Rams for the NFC West crown.

NFL Betting Trends

Arizona

The under is 5-0 in the Cardinals’ last five games after allowing more than 30 points in their previous game.

Seattle

The under is 5-1 in the Seahawks’ last six games after scoring more than 30 points in their previous game.

Prediction

The under is 4-1 in the Cardinals’ last five divisional games, is 4-1 in their last five games coming off a double-digit loss at home and is 6-2 in their last eight games played in the month of December. They have no offense and while their defense has struggled in back-to-back games, the Seahawks are likely to rest starters after clinching a playoff spot last week with their victory over the Chiefs. Thus, if they play back-ups, this could be one of the lowest-scoring games of the week.

NFL Week 17 Prediction: Cardinals/Seahawks under 38.5
