Professional betting capper Kevin Stott has taken a look into the NFL odds, betting trends, stats and other interesting tidbits regarding tonight's SNF matchup. Here's the expert verdict.

NFL PICKS SEASON ATS RECORD: 46-30-1

Cardinals Hosting Seahawks in Huge NFC West Showdown on Sunday Night Football

Larry Fitzgerald and the Arizona Cardinals play host to Richard Sherman and the Seattle Seahawks at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale in a fun Sunday Night Football NFC West matchup and NFL Week 7 battle of the birds. With the Seahawks 4-1 and the Cardinals 3-3, do the SU Records tell us that this is a Cardinals win or can Russell Wilson and Seattle fly down to Phoenix and almost put the division away early with a win as the small underdogs? Let's hop back in The Lab to attack this assignment, let the Billy Goat in for some tin can and make a pick and try to have another winning week ATS for our readership.

Seattle Seahawks vs Arizona Cardinals (NBC, 8:30 p.m. EDT)

The Seattle Seahawks (4-1 SU, 2-3 ATS, 105 PS-78 PA) head to the Sonoran Desert and University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale to face the Arizona Cardinals (3-3 SU, 3-3 ATS, 153 PS-104 PA) on Sunday Night Football in NFL Regular Season Week 7 in a huge NFC West affair. Offshore sportsbooks currently have the Cardinals as 2-point (at BookMaker) favorites with the Total (Points) at 43 to 43½ while in the Money Line marketplace, Arizona is priced in the -118 to -130 (Bookmaker) range with Seattle's highest take back at +110 at several books and here in Las Vegas. The 1st Half odds see the Cardinals as tiny ½-point favorites (Bookmaker) with the 1st Half Total at 21½ (BetOnline).

Sunday Night Football Trends, Series and Seahawks vs. Cardinals Pick

The Sunday Night Football Trends here heading into NFL Week 7 show Seattle to be 2-2 ATS as a Road Underdog on SNF with Arizona an anemic 4-16 ATS at Home—including a SU Loss as a favorite to Jimmy Garoppolo and the Patriots—and 4-8 ATS as a Favorite. The Seahawks (5-2 ATS L7 meetings) are 2-0 SU/ATS in the L2 games in suburban Phoenix (SEA 36-6, SEA 35-6) with Seattle outscoring the Cardinals by a hefty 71-12 margin. And we have two colliding mega-Trends here: The Under is 8-0 the L8 Arizona Home games but the Over is 10-2 the L12 meetings in Glendale and CG Technology's Matthew Holt said that the Sharps were betting the Over at his joints on local Sin City radio on The Las Vegas Sportsline on Thursday, driving the Total up to 43½ there.

Seattle is 6-1-1 its L8 Week 7 tilts but just 1-6 the L7 after a SU Win and 2-5 ATS in the L7 overall. And the Cardinals are 2-8 ATS the L10 vs. a Team with Winning record and just 3-8 ATS the L11 at Home. But the big question is what can we expect here and the psychology behind Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll (64-46-3 ATS)—one of the best moneymakers in the NFL—in knowing they've W2 here by big margins and that they can improve to 5-1 while dropping prime NFC West rival Arizona to 3-4 seems like an edge.
