It is a battle for first place in the NFC West on Sunday in football betting as the Seattle Seahawks host the Arizona Cardinals.
As surprising as this sounds one of these two teams is going to be 4-2 after this game is over. The Seahawks are favored in NFL football betting by just under a touchdown.
Seattle -5.5, total 40.5 at Sbg global – The Seahawks are at home and they are favored to win this game. The Seahawks are coming off a big road win last week at Chicago and looked very good. Arizona is coming off their bye week but they are also coming off a big win as they defeated the New Orleans Saints in their last game.
Who is For Real? When you bet this game you have to ask the question which team is for real. Are the Cardinals going to be a factor all year with an undrafted rookie at quarterback? Can they go on the road and win in a hostile environment like Seattle? On the other side of the coin, can Seattle put together back-to-back quality wins or will they go back to the team that can score any points? Last week against Chicago they did everything right but the Bears can’t protect Jay Cutler and they didn’t play well.
Hasselbeck or Hall? The Seahawks got a good game last week out of Matt Hasselbeck in the win over the Bears but was it for real or a mirage? Hasselbeck has not played that well the past couple of years so more than one game will be needed before everyone is sold. The Cardinals are going with Max Hall at quarterback and no one has any idea if he is any good or not.
