Seattle ranks 2nd in total defense and 10th in total offense. The Arizona Cardinals are coming off a 32-20 loss at the San Francisco 49ers as 10 point dogs to now stand at 3-3 straight up and 4-2 against the spread with two out of their 6 games going under the total. The last meeting between these teams resulted in a 58-0 win for Seattle – something that likely won’t happen Thursday night.

The Seattle Seahawks struggles on the road have been well documented in the past but this year they may have turned a corner. They are 2-1 away from CenturyLink this year with their only loss coming in Indianapolis in a game that they could have won. That said, their two wins have come by a combined eight points – they are favored by 6 1/2 Thursday night.

Seattle wasn’t sharp in Week 6 against Tennessee but as all good teams do – they found a way to win. Marshawn Lynch will likely be the key factor here – he is third in the NFL in rushing so far with 487 yards and now gets a crack at an Arizona run D that surrendered 149 yards to Frank Gore last week. This unit had been ranked third in the NFL before that game.

Russell Wilson has averaged about 210 yards passing per game this year but is a dual threat that gives opposing defenses fits – he can beat you with his arm and his legs. The passing game was out of sync in Week 6 and will be looking to rebound on National TV.

The Cardinals offense did OK against a top tier defense last week – Carson Palmer passed for 298 yards and rookie running back Andre Ellington had seven carries for 56 yards to go along with 36 receiving yards. [soliloquy id=”82219″]

The Seattle defense is a different type of challenge however – there are absolutely not holes win Seattle’s defense. Arizona committed four turnovers last week – something that likely won’t change against Seattle’s ball hawking defense.

Defensively Arizona is OK – they played well against Colin Kaepernick and company. They let Vernon Davis absolutely shred them last week but Seattle has no Vernon Davis-type on the roster.

Thursday Night Football Betting Prediction

:

A few trends to consider:

• Over is 7-2 in SEA last 9 road games.
• SEA are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games overall.
• SEA are 20-7 ATS in their last 27 vs. NFC.
• Over is 8-1 in the last 9 meetings in Arizona.

Arizona has won six of the last seven home matchups against the Seahawks but this week they are dealing with a banged up squad – Larry Fitzgerald although he went off last week has some hamstring issues and stud defensive end Calais Campbell was carted off the field and hospitalized last week. Both may play this week but will certainly be less than 100%. This has all the makings of a slug-fest – I see a low scoring game with the Cardinals keeping it close. Turnovers killed Arizona last week – they tighten up and home but fall short in a 20-16 game.

Pick: Arizona Cardinals to cover the 6 1/2 points
