Arizona snapped Seattle’s 14-game home winning streak with a 17-10 victory at CenturyLink Field on December 22 of last year. It was the Seahawks’ only loss at home en route to their Super Bowl victory. Now, the Cardinals come into this game with a 9-1 record, the best mark in the league. Seattle sits at just 6-4, good for second in the division, and in danger of missing the playoffs after winning the crown. Seattle would need to jump two teams in order to make the playoffs right now. We are going to back the red hot Cardinals on the road this afternoon.
Cardinals aim for seven wins in a row today
Arizona is riding a six-game winning streak heading into today and a seventh consecutive win could put the Seahawks season in a dangerous place. Arizona will play the remainder of the regular-season, and playoffs, without starting quarterback Carson Palmer. Palmer is out for the year with a knee injury. He has been replaced by Drew Stanton, who has gone 3-1 as a starter this year filling in for Palmer multiple times.
Seahawks fighting to save their season at home Sunday
With a 6-4 record, the Seahawks are already three games behind the Cardinals for first in the NFC West. They are also stuck behind two teams for the final spot in the NFC playoff picture. Seattle will be in must-win mode on Sunday when they host the Cardinals for this divisional battle. If they drop this contest, their luck in the 2014 season could run dry as they look to defend their Super Bowl title.
Sunday afternoon, the streaking Cardinals will visit the Seahawks for an NFC West contest. We will use the odds found at TopBet.eu to place our wager. Somehow, Seattle is favored by a touchdown in this game, which we do not agree with. We are going to bet 15 percent of our bankroll on Arizona and the OVER 41.5 total points scored as they move to 10-1.
