The Cards are road dogs according to the best online sportsbooks. The Cardinals have been in close contests the last three games. They seem to be headed for another one considering this point spread.
The Arizona defense has been just as weak as its division rival. They allow its last three opponents to score 30 points or more. That includes 34 points from the Seahawks in Week 7’s OT win. Thanks to a DeAndre Hopkins Hail Mary catch, the Cards didn’t suffer a second loss in a row to the Bills. And thanks to a holding call overriding a game-winning Seattle TD in overtime, this Arizona team could perfectly be 0-3 in the last three games.
The Cardinals defeated the Buffalo Bills 32-30 in Week 10 with one of the best plays this season. Kyler Murray hit DeAndre Hopkins for a 43-yard Hail Mary touchdown pass with two seconds remaining in the game. Apart from the Hail Mary, Murray didn’t have a lot of success through the air. He posted 245 passing yards, one TD, and one pick. But he torched the Bills on the ground with 11 carries for 61 yards and two TDs.
The Seahawks are home faves per top NFL sportsbooks online. Their defense has been a weak spot for the team all season long. However, Russell Wilson and the offense have always picked up the slack. That wasn’t the case in the last two games, though. Wilson ran out of fourth-quarter miracles. Then again, Wilson is back home after two road trips. He boasts an NFL-best 126.2 passer rating inside CenturyLink Field. Much better than just 98.3 on the road.
Wilson had three TOs on Sunday. Two interceptions and one fumble. That is the second straight game and the third time in four games that he’s had at least three TOs. Wilson has 10 turnovers (seven picks and three fumbles) since Week 7. Unsurprisingly, the Seahawks lost three of those four games.
Arizona Cardinals vs. Seattle Seahawks NFL Pick
Take Seattle and the points at top US sportsbooks online. As for the total, this one is a monstrous, opening at 56.5 and jumping to 58 points as of Monday morning. These teams combined for 68 points in regulation at Arizona in Week 7. But that was on the indoor track in the desert. This Week 11 clash could be a little slower and lumbering. Chalk that up to that famous Seattle weather.
The extended forecast calls for rain all week. That includes showers on Thursday night. That could help slow down a Cards offense that runs at a breakneck pace. They call 71.7 offensive plays per game in their last three outings. That is third-most in the league in that period.
The Seattle defense is coming off one of its best performances of the season in Week 10. They held the Rams to 24 points. That was despite three TOs and a time of possession of only 26:24. The Seahawks looked especially solid in the second half. They debuted defensive tackle Snacks Harrison. And they could have starting cornerbacks Shaquill Griffin and Quinton Dunbar back for this primetime matchup. If this stop unit brings some additional pushback down the stretch, Seattle could be a tough nut to crack.
