Predictions For Betting On Cardinals Seahawks – Seahawks Try To Consolidate Recent Gains On Sunday

Posted by Tony Bryant on 12/5/2012 6:11:20 PM

The Seattle Seahawks know that they control their own fate in the race for an NFL playoff spot. They don't need to worry about anything other than the Arizona Cardinals this weekend.

NFL betting line: Seattle -11.5

Why Arizona Will Win

When an online casino flourishes, it does so because cards come up in unexpected moments, or in this case, Cards can come up in unanticipated ways. The thing to realize about Arizona is that just a small injection of point production can make all the difference in the world for this team, because its defense is solid.  

The Cardinals are in position to win if they can merely find some (modest) semblance of an offense. It's not an original piece of analysis by any stretch, but really, what else can the Cardinals turn to at this point? They have to be able to score at least 17 points; no NFL team can expect to win when scoring less than that amount on a numbingly regular basis. The Cardinals have scored more than 17 points only once since Sept. 30, if you can possibly believe that. Moreover, the point total for Arizona in that game (vs. Atlanta on Nov. 18) was 19. Yes, the Cardinals have not scored more than 19 points since Sept. 30. They haven't scored more than 21 points in regulation time since Sept. 23 against Philadelphia. This team needs help after all the injuries it has sustained on its offensive line. Its defense held the New York Jets to just seven points last week. The Cardinals' defense could certainly pick up the slack – enough to win – in one game.

Why Seattle Will Win

In the high-stakes poker contest that is the NFL, you need a reliable dealer, and Russell Wilson is that man. What more can you say about a quarterback who, as a rookie, went into Chicago in early December and did not flinch against the Bears on the road? Wilson directed a go-ahead 97-yard touchdown drive in the final three minutes of regulation. After  Chicago improbably tied the score thanks to a completion on a long pass that was almost like a Hail Mary, Wilson and the Seahawks got the ball to start overtime, thanks to winning the coin toss. Wilson drove his team 80 yards to paydirt… and total victory.

This team should now really believe in itself. It will win as long as it plays with proper energy and attention to detail. Arizona is so messed up on offense that Seattle should not have to score a lot to win this game comfortably.

Who Will Win

It’s possible that Arizona could create some intrigue, if only because the NFL can be a tough league to figure out, but Seattle should be motivated to play particularly well after watching its NFL playoff chances improve. The Seahawks will be motivated in this game at home.
