The Seattle Seahawks (7-5 SU, 5-0 ATS home) will look to keep their perfect home record in tact this Sunday when they host a familiar foe in the Arizona Cardinals (4-8 SU, 3-2-1 ATS away)..
NFC West Showdown:
Cardinals at Seahawks
..who will be fighting to
snap an eight-game losing streak as these two teams collide in this NFC West
This matchup is set to kick off at 4:25 PM EST from
CenturyLink Field in Seattle, Washington and can be seen live on television,
with broadcast coverage provided by the FOX Network.
The current line on the game is showing Seattle listed as a
hefty -10 point home favorite, while the over/under total is coming in at 35 ½
Arizona ranks worst in the league in nearly every offensive
category, including points scored per game (15.5), total yards (279.1) and
rushing yards (81.5). Their 197.6 average passing yards per game is 27th
best in the NFL.
Defensively they are much better, giving up few than 20
points a games, which is good enough for 7th best in the league.
The Cardinals are 2-6-1 ATS in their last nine games overall
and 1-4-1 against the spread in their last six when facing NFC opponents.
Seattle’s offense is not all that much better than Arizona.
At 20.2 points per game, they rank 22nd best, but their stingy
defense, which gives up fewer than 17 points per contest, is in the top three
in the NFL.
The Seahawks are 4-1 against the spread in their last five
games played in the month of December and 6-2 ATS in their last eight games
In head to head action, the home team has covered five of
the last six meetings overall.

Other Things To Know
Before losing eight games in a row, Arizona won its first
four to open up the season. This current
streak is the second longest in franchise history, only surpassed by a ten-game
skid back in 1943.
Arizona is averaging less than 12 points per game in each of
the eight losses.
Seattle has had nine of its twelve games decided by seven
points or less, which is tied for most in the NFL with the Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh
Steelers. A stat like this will make one really consider how he makes his moneyline or spread pick.
In those nine games, Seattle won four and dropped five.
While points seem to come at a premium with these two teams,
I expect a little more than normal scoring from both the Cardinals and
Seahawks, which will push the final score over the posted total.
