Playoff Bound Cardinals Host Seahawks on NFL Week 18 Betting

Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals CashBet Wagering Analysis

Last week there were numerous reports about a blowup between Russell Wilson and Seattle Seahawks management.  Wilson has worn the Superman cape as Seattle’s one-man team.  On the whole, Wilson is the best dual-threat quarterback of all time.  And he carried the Seahawks to a pair of Super Bowls with one world championship.  However, the Super Bowl best formula is no longer relevant to today’s game.  This week the Seahawks will conclude a disappointing season at the Arizona Cardinals.  Since his tantrum, Wilson has played nice and says that Seattle has a roster with Super Bowl potential.

Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals CashBet Wagering Analysis

In this situation, the Cardinals will draw plenty of online sportsbook action as a playoff-bound home team.  Also, the Cardinals are jockeying for playoff position and a higher seed for home field.  Seattle has the luxury of playing for pride.  Thus, the Seahawks can play loose with nothing to lose.  Their playoff spot is already lost.  Sharps may take a look at Seattle for that reason.  Certainly, the better price is with the Seahawks.  Seattle’s win over Detroit was proof positive that they hadn’t packed it in for the season.

Seahawks Limp into Offseason With Plenty of Questions

Last week Seattle destroyed Detroit 51-29 as 8.5-point home favorites.  The game went over the Betting on Super Bowl total of 41.  As a result, Seattle is 6-10 straight up, 8-8 against the spread, and 5-11 over/under.  Overall, Seattle has NFL metrics of 23rd for total offense and 17th for scoring offense.  Defensively, the Seahawks have NFL metrics of 30th overall and 10th for points allowed.

In a recent meeting with coach Pete Carroll, Russell Wilson stormed off in a fit of pique.  Cause by this petulance, many NFL observers believed Wilson was as good as gone.  But Wilson has been in a more reconciliatory mood in recent days.  Now it appears he will bury the hatchet with Pete and return.

Cardinals Stop the Bleeding with Win at Big D
