Why Be On Seattle at -5?

There are a handful of good reasons to back Seattle in this Week 4 NFC West division matchup. The Seahawks are coming off a 33-27 loss to New Orleans Saints last weekend, so they’ll definitely be motivated. Then, there’s the fact that Seattle has the edge at virtually every position there is on both sides of the ball. Last but not least, the Seahawks know this is a division matchup they can’t afford to lose if they want to give themselves the chance to dethrone reigning division and conference champion Los Angeles.

Why Bet On Arizona at +5?

There a couple of reasons to back the Cardinals as a 5-point home dog in this one. First, Arizona has been relatively competitive in Weeks 1 and 2 and they’re playing at home in this matchup. Yes, the Cards got smacked around by Carolina in their 38-20 Week 3 home loss, but they are a progress in the works and Kyler Murray can clearly play at this level despite his short stature. The former Heisman Trophy winner completed 30 of 43 passes for 173 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions against Carolina last weekend.

Expert Analysis and Prediction for Seahawks vs Cardinals

I like the early season play of Arizona through three games and I fully believe that rookie quarterback Kyler Murray clearly has what it takes to make it as an NFL starter. Having said that, right now, Seattle is the more experienced and talented team in this affair on both sides of the ball and Russell Wilson has the big edge over his younger counterpart.

Seattle has gone a fantastic 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 36-17-3 ATS in their last 56 games following an SU loss. On the flip side of the coin, Arizona is just 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games against a team with a winning road record and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games overall while the road team in this NFC West division rivalry has gone a blistering 7-1-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings.

Pick: Seattle 27 Arizona 17
