Cardinals vs Seahawks odds - Seahawks owe the Cardinals some revenge

Posted by D.J. Tomkins on 10/15/2009 1:58:19 PM
NFL linesThe Cardinals vs Seahawks odds is a revenge game for the Seahawks, who were blown out on their home turf by the Cardinals last year. Obviously, having a healthy Matt Hasselbeck in the lineup makes a big difference. Online betting fans know that the Cardinals don’t travel particularly well, and that will be their downfall this weekend on their West Coast trip.



Cardinals vs Seahawks odds: Seahawks -3

  • WHAT: NFL betting
  • WHEN: Sunday, October 18th – 4:05 PM ET
  • WHERE: Qwest Field – Seattle, WA
  • KEY STAT: 13-5 ATS as a favorite
  • PICK: Seahawks -3, under 47



Cardinals vs Seahawks odds maker breakdown: The Storyline
The Arizona Cardinals have been a very inconsistent squad this year, and to be frank, they’re lucky to be 2-2. The Cards have played just one road game this year but are still just 2-2 on the year. It’s taken them one month to lose all credibility as NFC Champs.

Seattle are 2-3, but realistically, they are 2-0 in games that Matt Hasselbeck has fully participated and 0-3 in games that he hasn’t. When he’s healthy, this team looks like they can be very dangerous, and don’t be surprised if they carry their momentum over from last week and get another big win.

Betting Edge: Even


Cardinals vs Seahawks odds maker breakdown: Offense
Sportsbook odds makers have heard the Cardinals chirping about how much they want to run the ball but they haven’t done it. Through four games, the Cardinals have just 73 rushing attempts. While the passing game is their bread and butter, it doesn’t work for them every week and finding a running game would provide that consistency. As evidenced last week when the Cards blew a 21-0 lead, they have a tough time closing teams out since they don’t run the ball well.

For Seattle, they show more of a commitment to the run and it really keeps their offense flowing. Their yards per carry may be a mediocre 3.7, but the team is still averaging 105.6 yards per game on the ground. Hasselbeck has shown great chemistry with his receivers T.J. Houshmanzadeh and Nate Burleson, and the Cardinals may have a tough time matching up.

Betting Edge: Seattle


Cardinals vs Seahawks odds maker breakdown: Defense
The Cards defense has been roughed up so far this season. They allow over 370 yards per game, which is in the bottom third of the league, and they have given up 11 touchdowns on the year. The Cards are particularly vulnerable to the pass as nine of those 11 touchdowns have come through the air. That’s not good news for the Cards considering their matchup.

Seattle’s defense goes how their offense goes. In the two games that Hasselbeck has played, they have yet to allow a single point. In the other three games, the Seahawks have allowed 27 points per game. The Seahawks are still a little beaten up on offense but they are a defense that plays significantly better at home than on the road.

Betting Edge: Seahawks


Cardinals vs Seahawks odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries
The Seahawks have a pile of injuries, particularly on the offensive line, but it hasn’t affected them too much with the new zone blocking scheme. On defense, the team is still without top corner Marcus Trufant and it looks like end Patrick Kerney will miss the contest too.

Betting Edge: Cardinals


Cardinals vs Seahawks odds for total: 47
NFL betting fans should note that the Seahawks do have an above-average defense. They have looked hot and cold this year, because when Hasselbeck plays and the offense is there to support them, the Seahawks can shut down their opponents. On the other hand, when they don’t get that balance, the Seahawks defense can’t hang on. In this game, look for both teams to do some scoring but not enough to get over this high total.

Pick: Under 47


Cardinals vs Seahawks betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick
The Cardinals are not a team that travels well, and while they got the win in Seattle last year, the Seahawks will be looking to better protect their home court this time around. The Seahawks are the better team in this game as long as Hasselbeck is healthy.
