Seahawks vs Arizona Head-to-Head

Pete Carrol is old, man. He first coached the Seahawks against the Cardinals a decade ago when Max Hall was their quarterback. His lifetime record against them is 12-7-1 and he once absolutely mangled them 58-0 in a game that mercifully ended Ken Wisenhunt’s head-coaching career. Against the Cardinals’ current coach, Kliff Kingsbury, they’ve split their games last season with Arizona playing late-season spoiler on Seattle’s playoff seeding run.

Last Game

The Seattle Seahawks last appeared to bettors two Sunday nights ago, as last week they had their bye. In that previous game, they played the Minnesota Vikings who clutched defeat from the jaws of victory in a stunning collapse, losing 27-26 after a Russell Wilson last-minute comeback drive.

While it was one of those finishes in which the point spread wasn’t much in question, the nerve-wracking sweat for the total was epic. Bet down from 57½ to 54, it took no fewer than three missed extra-point attempts to sneak the game under the number (and not go into overtime).

Injury Report

No one injured on a bye week, of course, but two names did return to practice on Monday after being moved from injured reserve, CB D.J. Reed and rookie TE Colby Parkinson.

Last Game

Full disclosure, we were completely on board the Red Rifle Bandwagon heading into Monday night’s game between the Cardinals and the Cowboys. We backed Dallas as a short underdog and laughed as it was bet into a short favorite. We also backed the over 53½ and felt pretty good about it when the total closed 55½.

Which was more humbling? The +4 turnover differential the Cardinals had, or the 164-yard rushing disparity? The last one might be worse because it’s not like the Cowboys were held to 28 ground yards or something. (It was 97 to a stunning 261.)

Overs are usually preferable for recreational bettors because they always have a chance to cash, even towards the end. While that’s still true here, anyone watching knew the scoreless first quarter meant cashing over even at 53½ was approaching a miracle.

Injury Report

Arizona seems to have escaped its last game without any obvious injury. To their credit, the Cardinals started the three players questionable for the game, namely their starting left tackle and two linebackers who bolstered the defense.

Seattle Seahawks vs Arizona Cardinals Betting on the Game:

Point Spread

With Arizona having played Monday, this line opened later than others, on Tuesday morning. Not much has changed, as the Cardinals opened as a flat 3½-point home underdog (meaning -110 vig) and have been bought up to -115.


Seattle is priced on the moneyline at -180 with the takeback for Arizona at +160.


The total for the game, one of the highest on the board this week, is set at 56½. It has not moved so far.
