Game Preview & Betting Angles
This is everything NFL fans could want in a primetime game. Two rivals — who are both led by bonafide MVP candidates — battling it out for supremacy in the division. Russell Wilson and Kyler Murray are two of the most electric players in the NFL this year and it’s safe to say that both guys are elite quarterbacks.
The Seahawks are scuffling right now, losing back-to-back games for the first time all year. They are looking to break that trend on the short week, but the Cardinals are one of their toughest tests of the season. Arizona is coming off of a last-second, hail-mary win over the Buffalo Bills last week. And not too long ago, the Cardinals pulled off a thrilling come-from-behind win against the Seahawks on Sunday Night Football.
This has all the makings for another classic.
Seahawks Game Notes
Before we get to Wilson’s incredible season, let’s focus on the Seattle defense. The Legion of Boom is more like the Legion of Bums this year. The Seahawks rank dead last in the NFL in yards per game (448.3) and 28th in scoring defense (29.6).
Injuries have hurt that unit all season long, but even the recent return of All-Pro Jamal Adams has done little to right the ship. Seattle traded away a king’s ransom for Adams in the offseason and when he’s been on the field, he’s been largely underwhelming. Although he does have 5.5 sacks and 6.0 tackles for loss, Adams has been a complete liability in coverage.
When the Seahawks traded two firsts, a third, and Bradley McDougald for Adams, they were hoping to get someone who could transform their defense. That has yet to happen.
Offensively though, the Seahawks can score in bunches. Wilson is having an MVP-type season and he leads the NFL in touchdown passes with 28. Unfortunately, Wilson is being asked to do a lot and he is already at 10 interceptions. That’s one fewer than his season-high mark of 11, which he did twice in 2016 and 2017.
The Seattle offense ranks first in the NFL in points per game (32.2), third in passing yards per game (289.4), and third in total yards per game (405.9).
Cardinals Game Notes
The Cardinals will go as far as Kyler Murray takes them, but it helps to have potentially the best wide receiver in football as his running mate — DeAndre Hopkins. During the offseason, the Cardinals acquired a souped-up Lamborghini for the price of a Toyota Corolla. The Houston Texans traded Hopkins and a fourth-round pick to Arizona for David Johnson, a second, and a fourth.
To say that this trade was a steal for the Cardinals would be the understatement of the century. Hopkins is second in the NFL in receptions (67) and receiving yards (861). Putting Hopkins up against the horrific Seattle secondary seems like a one-sided affair. Remember, the best guy in that secondary — Jamal Adams — is more of a box safety who rushes the passer. The advantage here has to go to the Cardinals.
The Arizona defense is middle of the pack when it comes to giving up yards, but they are more of a bend-don’t-break team. They are ninth in the NFL in scoring defense (23.3).
Keying in on Russell Wilson and D.K. Metcalf will be key to slowing down this Seahawks passing attack. Metcalf is quickly entering that “best receiver in the league” conversation with DeAndre Hopkins.

Betting Picks & Score Prediction
It’s always a risky proposition to bet against Russell Wilson, but there’s only so much one man can do. The Cardinals appear to be the more complete team at this stage in the season. Seattle can’t stop a nosebleed and the secondary is going to have their hands full with Murray and Hopkins.
Take the Cardinals with the points here. The total is set too high to touch and the Seahawks aren’t playing well enough to trust when they are laying the points.
