The Arizona Cardinals are quietly putting together a great season that could result in a playoff berth, but it won’t be easy as they head to Seattle to take on the Seahawks. The Seahawks are off a dominating win on the East Coast as they crushed the New York Giants, but will get a much better team this weekend. The Cardinals could make the world take notice if they can beat the Seahawks and end their dominant winning streak.
Arizona Cardinals at Seattle Seahawks Preview
The NFL odds for this game opened up with the Seahawks as double digit favorites. Currently the Seahawks are minus ten point favorites for this divisional game and that is a number that could easily change leading up to kickoff. The early betting favors the Seahawks as over 80 percent of the money coming in is on the home team.
The Cardinals are playing better because they are getting inspired play at quarterback from veteran Carson Palmer. Carson Palmer posted an 86.6 Total QBR against the Titans.
