Cardinals vs. Seahawks Betting Predictions

Arizona vs. Seattle, NFL Betting Predictions, November 19

Russell Wilson has lost some steam in his MVP train with seven turnovers in the last two weeks as the Seattle Seahawks have now lost three of their four games since the bye week. One of those losses came to the Arizona Cardinals, who come to visit Seattle on Thursday with a lot of momentum. The Cardinals have won four of their last five games as Kyler Murray has raised his profile in the MVP race in the past few weeks.

Cardinals vs. Seahawks Betting Odds

It took a Hail Mary for Arizona to rally for a second time against the Bills last week, but the perfectly-executed deep pass pulled the Cardinals into the three-way tie atop the NFC West. Murray has simply been sensational the past few weeks, and he was back to working his magic in the second half against Buffalo. He’s had at least one rushing score in his last five games and he’s added 10 passing touchdowns in that same stretch as well. DeAndre Hopkins has been a gamechanger for the offense, even before he caught the Hail Mary at the end of last week’s game. The Cardinals lead the league in yards per game and rank seventh in points per game, so they should easily be able to batter the Seahawks’ shaky defense.

Seattle’s issues begin with its defense that ranks last in yards allowed and 28th in points allowed this season. But those were consistent issues for the Seahawks throughout the season and ones they were able to hide by scoring in bunches. The biggest problem Seattle has right now is Wilson, who has been turned into a below-average quarterbacks the past two weeks. He’s thrown four interceptions, lost three fumbles and thrown just two touchdowns in those two losses, adding to the tailspin he’s had since the bye. In those four games since the off week, Wilson has as many turnovers (10) as touchdowns, including the three interceptions he threw the first time Seattle played Arizona this season to counteract his three touchdowns. If Wilson can’t protect the ball and continues to squander possessions, Seattle’s defense has no chance to keep teams off the board for very long.

There are going to be plenty of points scored in this game with how dynamic both of these offenses can be. Three of Seattle’s four games since the bye have eclipsed 63 points, including the first meeting between these two teams that included 71 points. Arizona’s last three games have also all gone over the 60-point threshold. It’s going to be a shootout between two explosive offenses with the better defensive team pulling out the victory. The New Jersey online sports betting sites have made a bit of mistake in putting the over/under so low at 57.5 points because the real value is six or seven points higher. I’m easily picking the over 62.5 points in this game at +160 odds and I would even go as high as over 66.5 points at +250 odds.

Cardinals to win

I understand why Seattle is the favorite at the NFL betting sites in New Jersey because the Seahawks are 4-0 at home this season and this will be Arizona’s first road trip in a month. However, when you look at how these two teams have played in recent weeks, it’s hard to comprehend Seattle being a 3.5-point favorite over Arizona. The bottom has seemingly fallen out of the Seahawks defense as they have been picked apart by opposing quarterbacks through the air. Murray isn’t a polished passer by any stretch, but he has the weapons to dissect Seattle’s poor secondary and the legs to escape the pressure the Seahawks have been forced to bring. Wilson has struggled with turnovers the past two weeks while Murray has just continued to stay poised and make winning plays for his team. I’ll flip the entire bet on its head and take Arizona laying 3.5 points for +200 odds.
