Cardinals vs Seahawks Prediction and Best Bet
The Cardinals offense has been one of the more disappointing stories of the season. The team was expected to have some struggles without top wideout DeAndre Hopkins, but the 18.3 points per game that they've averaged over the last three weeks (eighth-worst) is worse than expected.
Although the Seahawks are far from perfect, no other team has scored more than their 34.3 PPG clip since Week 3. Pete Carroll's squad has scored 80 points over the last two weeks alone, which is bad news for the Cardinals, who own a bottom-11 defense.
Still, it hasn't been all bad for the Cardinals. They are 2-0 on the road this season, which is on top of the fact that they've also won five of their last seven trips to Lumen Field. Without Russell Wilson to worry about anymore, finding a win should be easier for Arizona.
Besides, the Seahawks own the second-worst scoring defense this season. Cardinals QB Kyler Murray averaged 30.3 completions, 289.7 passing yards and exactly two touchdowns in his last three games against Seattle, so this could be the opportunity he needs to get his team back on track.
At the end of the day, both teams have struggled, but this is a must-win game for the Cardinals. I can see Arizona getting the job done on the road, so take the Cardinals at -3 on the spread, as well as the total hitting over 50.5 points due to a total lack of defense here.
