Expert Top Pick of the Day: Arizona Cardinals at Seattle Seahawks

Expert Top Pick of the Day: Arizona Cardinals at Seattle Seahawks

The Cardinals will visit the Seahawks at Lumen Field today. With an injured squad, the Cardinals will attempt to win over the Seahawks and a hurting defensive line.

The Arizona Cardinals are ready to visit the Seattle Seahawks Sunday at Lumen Field. Currently, the Cardinals will arrive in Seattle in a much more solid position, as they stand with an 8-2 season record and lead the NFC West division. The Cards are, therefore, more than ready to walk away quite possibly with another victory.

On the other hand, the Seahawks are hurt and are looking to get up on their feet. With a current 3-6 season record and in the last position of the AFC West, Seattle is aiming right up at their current division leaders. Yet, unfortunately, the odds are not quite on their side, and Seattle will be forced to pull out a superb performance against a leading Cardinal offense. Still, this Sunday NFL showdown will give the Seahawks a fighting chance to deliver a solid home performance.

Cardinals Potential Is Quite Evident 

Although the Cardinals’ championship potential is evident, their recent record is still not the most convincing. With a 2-2 record in their last four performances, the Cardinals are looking to strengthen their record and add to their previous winning streak in the NFC West.

The Cardinals are landing in Seattle with a 10-34 home loss to the Carolina Panthers. They are also coming off another home loss, two weeks ago, to the Green Bay Packers in a match-up that ended with a 24-21 score.

With injuries on their side, having lost Kyle Murray since Week 8, for instance, the Cardinals have still prevailed despite some losses along the way. The Arizona squad will now seek to surpass a hurt offense led by Russell Wilson and an even more affected defensive line to build a leading Division Record.

Seahawks Still Aiming at a Season Turnaround

Only two teams in the NFL have started their season with a 3-7 record and finished with overall positive numbers. The question remains if the Seahawks currently have that kind of material to turn the odds around.

After a contrasting 1-1 record in their last two games (including a shutout at the hands of the Green Bay Packers), the Seahawks are still in the air and need to aim quickly to get back to their once positive season numbers. It is now up to Wilson and the defensive line to pick up positive momentum as they face the current division leaders.

Godds Pick or Prediction of the Game

The Arizona Cardinals are looking to make another positive appearance in Seattle this Sunday afternoon. Yet, odds favor the Seahawks for a quick season turnaround as they attempt to take advantage of Arizona’s injuries and their recent two losses over their last five games. With those injuries certainly to be an issue, and the Seahawks looking to avenge their horrible performance last week, Arizona’s going to have a difficult game.

Godds Pick/Prediction: Seahawks to win and the under hits.
