The Cardinals are coming off a dramatic win over the Bills while the Seahawks lost for the third time in four games the last time out. Both teams are currently at 6-3 on the season and they share the NFC West division lead with the L.A. Rams.

This is the second meeting between these teams this season. Arizona won their first meeting 37-34, cashing out as +3.5 point betting underdogs. The Seahawks led 34-24 with less than minutes left to play in the game. However, Arizona rallied to force the overtime and win the game in the extra period.

Football Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks had a strong 5-0 start but since taking their by the week, they have been just 1-4. Seattle has dropped its last two games and they have dropped three in a row on the road. Last week, the Seahawks lost to the Los Angeles Rams 23-16. The Seahawks were out-gained 389-333 and had more turnovers 3-1 in the loss. The defeat put them in a tie with Arizona and Los Angeles at 6-3 in their division.

Quarterback Russell Wilson has passed for a total of 2,789 yards with 28 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He was 22-37 with 248 yards with two interceptions. But Wilson has struggled as of late as he has thrown seven interceptions and has lost three fumbles. Wilson ranks 8th in the league with a QBR of 76.1 and leads the NFL in passing touchdowns. DK Metcalf has 45 catches for 816 yards with 8 touchdown catches. Meanwhile, Tyler Lockett has caught 58 passes for 681 yards with seven scores.

Seattle ranks first in the league in scoring at 32.3 points per game and they also have the worst defense in the NFL as they allow an average of 448.3 total yards of offense per contest. The Seahawks are also 28th in scoring defense at 29.6 points per game allowed and they are this in offense at 405.9 yards per contest.

Football Who Wins?

Arizona is 4-1 SU in their last five games played. The Cardinals are 3-1 SU in their last four games played on the road, and 3-7 SU in their last 10 games played against the NFC West. Seattle is 6-3 SU in their last nine games played. The Seahawks are 4-0 SU in their last four games played at home, and 6-2 SU in their last eight games played in November. Head to head, the Seahawks are 3-2 SU in their last five games played against the Cardinals.

Please Note

The Cardinals are riding high on the momentum of their miraculous win over the Bills last week. But other than the “Hail Murray” play that won the game for them, Arizona’s running game was impressive as they tallied more than six yards per carry and scored two of their three touchdowns on the ground. Meanwhile, the Arizona defense allowed Buffalo only 73 yards in the game.

The Seahawks looked like the top team in the NFC after their 5-0 start. However, they have dropped three of their four games since their bye week. Seattle is still tied for first in the NFC West but has a 1-2 division record. If the Cardinals win, they will clinch the tiebreaker.

Wilson needs to return to his early-season form. The Seattle QB looked like an MVP candidate after five games with 19 touchdowns and three interceptions. In their four games since the bye week, Wilson has thrown 9 scores and has 7 picks. Also, he has been sacked 11 times and hit 23 times combined in their last two games.

These are two teams trending in opposite directions and while the Seahawks have been spotless at home so far, the Cardinals have been playing like contenders lately. I think this will be a close game where every point matters. I’ll take the plus money and the road team.

Prediction: Arizona Cardinals

Arizona is on cloud nine right now after their “Hail Murray” play last weekend. The Cardinals have won four out of their last five games played but it will be interesting to see how their focus will be after that dramatic win. Meanwhile, the Seattle defense has struggled lately and the Seahawks have gone 1-3 since their by week. I’m having thoughts about eating the chalk and going with the veteran team that has the veteran playmaker. However, we’re getting the team that’s playing better right now at even money and at plus a field goal. I think this will be a close game so I will have to take the plus points.

Prediction: Cardinals +3

The under is 5-3-1 in Arizona’s nine games played this season. The total has gone under in three out of four road games played by the Cardinals this season. The under is also 6-3 in their last nine games played against the NFC. The total has gone over in seven out of the last 10 games played by the Seahawks. The over is 3-1 in Seattle’s four home games played this season. The Seahawks have seen the total hit under in five out of their last seven games played against the NFC.

57.5 (-110)

Odds from BetOnline as of 11/18/2020

Although 58 points came in the first 57 minutes of their first meeting, these teams combined to score a total of 71 points in that game. Seattle’s defense has struggled and Arizona’s offense has produced 30 or more points in their last five assignments. The Seattle offense was humming too, before the loss to LA, as they scored at least 30 points in seven out of their previous eight games. Given how good the Cardinals have been on offense and how badly the Seahawks want to bounce back, I think this will be an offensive showdown.

Prediction: Over 57.5
