Seattle Seahawks @ Arizona Cardinals – Sunday September 9, 2012 4:25PM EST

Both the Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals have had eventful training camps and preseasons. The NFL betting experts are not quite sure what both teams have learned in this preseason, but the way each team has gone about its decision making processes told a lot about what we can expect from each team this year. The Cardinals are trying very hard to make the right decisions with every personnel move it makes, while the Seattle Seahawks have adopted a "shoot first, ask questions later" approach to putting together what should be a mediocre football team.

The Arizona Cardinals have used all of the time it has to evaluate its quarterbacks and try to make the right decision for the team. While the Arizona front office would like to see Kevin Kolb get the starting job because of his huge contract, it may wind up that John Skelton is best for the team. The Seahawks caught the betting websites completely off guard by signing former Packers' quarterback Matt Flynn to a huge contract and then never naming Flynn the starter. In the end, the Seahawks wound up with one of the highest paid backup quarterbacks in the NFL.

Why the Cardinals Will Win

Most people expect the Cardinals to give the starting quarterback job to John Skelton, and that is because Skelton gives the team the best chance to win. Running back Beanie Wells is finally in place and the Arizona offense is starting to take shape. The Cardinals' defense is young but aggressive. With the proper coaching, this defense could be a dangerous unit. The Cardinals hope that all of the elements can come together and make Arizona a contender this season.

Why the Seahawks Will Win

Seattle rookie starting quarterback Russell Wilson will have the element of surprise on his side all season long. The online sportsbook experts note that it was the element of surprise that allowed Tim Tebow to be a success in 2011. Wilson shows much more promise than Tebow ever did and the Seahawks are hoping that it has found its starting quarterback of the future with Russell Wilson. Wilson has a fairly talented offense around him and an aggressive defense that can help Seattle to win games.

The Bottom Line

In the end, the Cardinals with Skelton under center are simply a better football team than the Seattle Seahawks. Seattle may have finally found the quarterback it can build its future team around, but this rookie year will be a tough adjustment for Wilson.

Pick: Arizona Cardinals
