Pro football betting expectations have risen some for the Seattle Seahawks after their surprising NFL sports betting win last week at Chicago.
The Seattle Seahawks will host the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday with a kickoff on FOX scheduled for 4:10 PM Eastern. Sports-Gambling opened with Seattle as a 6 point home favorite and with a total of 40.5. This game is for first place in the NFC West.
The Seattle Seahawks have a NFL betting record of 3-2 both straight up and against the spread after their23-20 win at Chicago as 6 point road dogs. Seattle ranks 27th in total offense and a poor 30th in rushing while the defense ranks 24th overall but a solid 12th for points allowed.
Seattle sacked Bears quarterback Jay Cutler 6 times last week and held Chicago to 0-12 on third downs.
The Arizona Cardinals went from Matt Leinart to Derek Anderson to now Max Hall as their starting quarterback this year and have somehow gone 3-2 straight up although 2-3 against the spread. Arizona has gone over the total in 4 out of 5 games this year.
Arizona has been winning with mirrors in some ways as they rank 31st in total offense and 28th in total defense. Yet they have weathered the storm and have been opportunistic. Arizona is coming off a bye that followed a 30-20 NFL gambling home win over New Orleans.
The bye came at the perfect time for Hall to further study the offense and get acclimated.
The Cardinals have paid out in 11 of their last 14 games as a dog and in 9 out of their last 12 versus teams with a winning record. Seattle has paid out in 10 of their last 14 as a home favorite but is just 3-13 against the spread after a straight up win.
Arizona has gone over the pro football betting total in 41 out of their last 55 games as a road dog while Seattle has gone over the total in 3 out of their last 13 when coming off a payout in their previous game. Arizona has covered 4 straight against the Seattle and the series has gone over the total in 9 out of the last 12 meetings.
