Sunday Night Football features an NFC West showdown with the Cardinals as slight road underdogs. Is this a lock for the Seahawks? Here's our NFL Pick.

Seahawks vs. Cardinals

The Seattle Seahawks enter the NFC West showdown with the Arizona Cardinals as the slight road underdogs, anywhere from +1 to +2 depending on your preferred sportsbook. It’s not often the Seahawks (4-1) are at the disadvantage and that alone begs a tickle on your week 7 NFL picks, don’t you think?

Why are the Seahawks at the disadvantage, come to think of it? They’re atop the NFC West and riding a three-game winning streak into week 7. Not to mention, they are proven champions that know how to win the important games such as this Sunday Night Football showdown is.

Those NFL odds make even less sense when you consider the Cardinals (3-3 SU) have long struggled against the Seahawks on home turf. It’s the one team they can’t seem to defeat consistently enough despite having home advantage. In fact, since the 2013 season the Cardinals are an impressive 19-5 SU at home but three of those five losses came to the Seahawks.

Another thing (if you will) to consider: how good are the Cardinals this season, really? Let’s trot out the teams they’ve beaten: Buccaneers, Niners and Jets. Hardly an impressive list of contenders, is it? There’s something that’s been off with Carson Palmer and the O-line this season. They’re not playing up to their usual standard and potential, and they can’t seem to get going against a really good team. Case-and-point: lost to the Patriots and Bills.

Seahawks are a good team and a win over the NFC West standard would be a huge confidence boost for the so-so Cards. However, we just don’t see it happening. It’s difficult to look beyond a team that simply finds ways to win games, even if it’s ugly.
