Reasons The Cardinals Can Cover The Spread

The Cardinals did a lot better against the undefeated Eagles last week than many expected. Their defense showed promise, holding the Eagles to only 20 points. PFF has the Cardinals in 2nd in their Perfectly Covered Plays metric – plays where every coverage defender gets a 0 grade or better. If the Cardinals can do that against Geno Smith, then they’ll be in good shape.

On offense, Kyler and co still haven’t found any reliable progress, but against the 31st DVOA defense in Seattle, this could be a major get right spot for an offense that has better personnel than their results this season.

Why The Seahawks can cover the spread

The number 1 offense by DVOA, the Seahawks have run colder than a Canadian winter in the red zone. 31st in the league in converting Red Zone trips to Touchdowns, the Seahawks fortunately get to face a bottom 10 defense at stopping Red Zone touchdowns.

If they can get some positive regression to the mean, they’ll also need some more stops defensively. If the Cardinals 23rd ranked DVOA offense stays cold another week or Seattle is on the right side of referee luck this week, they could easily come out of this game victors.

Reasons to bet the over

The Seahawks only seem to know how to play high scoring games the last two weeks. With the Lions and Saints able to carve up the Seahawks and pace up the game, the Cardinals should be able to do the same. If so, Geno Smith’s penchant for long plays will come in handy.

If this game does become a track meet, the fact that both defenses are bottom 10 in getting stops on 3rd down and bottom 11 in getting stops in the Red Zone means that these offenses should be able to convert drives into points, and ideally touchdowns.

Reasons to bet the under

It’s possible that the Seahawks struggles in the Red Zone continue this week, which could end up hurting scoring chances. If that happens, then the Cardinals offense will have to be more efficient than they’ve been so far.

If the Seahawks offense cools down from their current levels, then getting this over the number could be hard. Arizona’s offense has been downright mediocre, and if Geno Smith regresses negatively, then this could be an ugly, not well played game of football.

Cardinals vs. Seahawks Props: Matchups To Watch For

Geno Smith Interceptions: O/U / ()

Geno has a reputation for being risky with the ball in his hands, but that reputation doesn’t quite match reality. He was a huge turnover machine early in his career, but in 9 games in Seattle the last two seasons, he’s only thrown 3 interceptions. He’s refined out a lot of the errors that cost him early, but the books are pricing him like he’s still a huge risk.

Rondale Moore Receiving Yards: O/U / ()

Moore finally showed some promise last week, putting up 68 yards on 7 receptions. With this game having shootout potential, Moore has been touted all week in fantasy circles – and the line is low if last week’s a true indicator of his future usage.

Final Thoughts

This line has a very real risk of going to -3 for the Cardinals, which is what Seahawks bettors should be waiting for. If it stays at -2.5, as is the current line, then this game gets even more interesting.

There are two types of unsustainable results – teams with bad fundamentals and good results, and teams that should not have the fundamentals they do with their talent. The Seahawks are a great case of the latter, because how is a Geno Smith offense this efficient?

If they can be this good again this week, then as home dogs they might be worth a bet. That said, it seems unfathomable that this team can be this good reliably.

On the other side, the Cardinals are absolutely underperforming their talent, which makes them an obvious positive regression candidate. The Cardinals Defense performed better the last two weeks, and their coverage gets good marks from PFF.

Laying a full field goal would obviously change that, but unless the Seahawks are as good as their advanced metrics on offense say, the Cardinals should have the offense to score. Best of luck handicapping Cardinals Seahawks odds.
