The Seattle Seahawks will look to lock up the NFC West title tomorrow when they welcome the Arizona Cardinals to CenturyLink Field. Sunday NFL Odds like Seahawks chances as they are drawing a -11.5 line in the divisional showdown. Kickoff in this rivalry tilt is set for 4:05pm ET; the game, which features a 43 point total, will be broadcast live on FOX.
When these two rivals met in Glendale, Arizona on October 17th Seattle scored an easy 34-22 victory. The Seahawks held the Cardinals to 234 total yards and a 3.3 yards per play average in the double digit win.
The loss, which came of the heels of a 20-32 setback against the 49ers, dropped Arizona's record to 3-4 on the season and seemingly set it up for another dismal season. However, it instead served as a rallying point for Bruce Arians' squad.
Since that Thursday night battle in the desert the Cardinals 6-1 and positioned to capitalize on a slip up from either the Panthers, Saints, or 49ers in the NFC playoff chase. At 9-5, though, Arizona cannot afford any mistakes of its own, which is unfortunate reality considering what the team has coming up.
Seattle is generally regarded as the league's best team, especially when playing within the noisy confines of CenturyLink Field. The Seahawks, who are coming off a 23-0 shutout of the Giants, are 6-0 at home with wins over the Niners, Jaguars, Titans, Buccaneers, Vikings, and Saints.
It would appear the bigger and better the opposition, the harder it falls in Seattle. The Seahawks experienced relatively close calls against Tampa Bay and Tennessee, but they topped San Francisco and New Orleans by a combined score of 63-10.
That may be an ominous sign for the Cardinals, who at this point have to be considered a legitimate competitor. Of course, the other foreboding marker for Arizona is its 2-8 record in its last 10 trips to the Emerald City.
Notable Trends: The Cardinals are 1-5 against the spread in their last six games as a road dog with a spread between 8 and 10.5 points.
