Seahawks vs. Cardinals Betting Insights

Reasons The Seahawks Can Cover The Spread

The Seahawks win last week was a bit of a no-win situation for them against a Giants team widely seen as frauds. They get little credit for the win, but they did find some defensive success last week. The Seahawks are 11th by DVOA Defense and 7th in Offense, a combination that suggests that they should even be flirting with favourite status.

So long as Geno Smith can carve up the Cardinals pass D – 23rd by DVOA, 31st by PFF grades – the Seahawks should be able to score at will.

Why The Cardinals can cover the spread

There still has to be some skepticism about Geno Smith at this point, with the small sample that he’s been able to pull this off in. If Geno regresses, and maybe throws a timely interception or two, the Cardinals can take advantage.

Beyond that, the hope has to be that the Cardinals offense will be better with De’Andre Hopkins, which has been partially validated through two games. If Kyler and Hopkins can cut through the Seahawks secondary, then the Cardinals are well placed to take advantage.

Reasons to bet the over

The Cardinals pass defense is a disaster, which means Seattle should be able to go up and down the field on them, like the Saints and Vikings did. Even the Saints throwing 3 untimely interceptions still managed to put up 34.

The Seahawks can defend better now than they have earlier in the season, but they’re still 23rd by PFF’s passing defense grades, which now that Hopkins is back, should help the Over.

Reasons to bet the under

The last time these two teams played there were only 28 points scored. That the Seahawks defense looks to have found something these last couple of weeks also suggests that this game won’t be as high scoring as you’d expect from their recent offensive outputs.

Throw in the fact that the Seahawks still have one of the more conservative coaches in terms of 4th down decision making and you might see more punts or Field Goals, which could help the Under.

Seahawks vs. Cardinals Props: Matchups To Watch For

De’Andre Hopkins Receptions: If the Cardinals are going to be competitive in this game, a steady diet of Hopkins is going to have to be the recipe. With the Seahawks 10th in rushing defense DVOA and likely to score a ton on Arizona’s bad pass defense, the Cardinals will need to pepper Hopkins with targets to get any good results.

Total Receptions: O/U / ()

Final Thoughts

The Cardinals being favoured in this game is fundamentally because nobody really trusts this Seahawks team. Geno Smith feels unsustainable, even if there’s nothing in their offensive metrics that suggest they’re getting particularly lucky. Hell, they’re 31st in Red Zone Touchdown %, so you could easily make the argument they’re running colder than expectations.

On the other side, the Cardinals are 26th in Offensive DVOA and 27th by PFF. While a lot of that is pre-Hopkins, their gaudy point totals the last two weeks belie the fact that 14 of those points against the Saints were free Andy Dalton pick-sixes, and that Saints team was running out a functionally practice squad secondary.

Nothing suggests the Cardinals will be able to stop Geno again – bottom 10 in Pass D by both DVOA and PFF, last in Early Down Success Rate, and horrible at getting stops on third down precisely because of that terrible Early Down defense. The Cardinals are theoretically better than their metrics offensively, but they’re not good no matter how you slice it.

Geno Smith is 7th in the NFL in EPA/play. Kyler Murray is 21st. Nothing about these two teams suggests Arizona should be favoured except pre-season expectations.
