Could this be the last game for Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald? It’s possible - which could mean plenty of action for the man with the third-most receiving yards in NFL history.

The Seattle Seahawks still have a shot at reaching the NFC playoffs – but they’ll need a strong home performance Sunday afternoon against the NFC-rival Arizona Cardinals, along with a little help from the Carolina Panthers. The Seahawks have been a bettor’s nightmare at home, covering just twice in seven games at CenturyLink Field and coming off a 42-7 thumping at the hads of the Los Angeles Rams in their previous contest there two weeks ago.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

There is little doubt in the odds world that the Seahawks will fulfil their end of the bargain and waltz past the Cardinals – but Seattle has done little to instil bettor confidence, having failed to cover in four of their last five home games and going 1-4 ATS in their previous five outings following a victory. That said, the Cardinals might be just the opponent to reverse those trends, having covered just once in their last seven road games overall.

Sports Interaction wagerers aren’t scared off by the huge spread – 62 percent are siding with the host Seahawks, who are 1-1 ATS as double-digit faves this season. A slightly smaller majority (56 percent) are leaning toward the under on the 38 ½-point total. Both teams are certainly trending in that direction, with Arizona having gone below the total in five of its last six road games and Seattle having gone 2-9 O/U in its previous 11 vs. the NFC.

Arizona Cardinals

Larry Fitzgerald, who has 1,101 yards on the season, boasts six games in which he has had at least nine receptions and/or 90+ yards. The Cardinals are 2-4 straight-up, 2-3-1 ATS and 3-3 O/U in those six contests, four of which have come in the previous seven games overall.

Seattle Seahawks

If the Seahawks hope to cover for just the third time at home this season, they’ll need to be a lot more disciplined. Seattle leads the NFL by a significant margin in both penalties and penalty yards, and has the worst flag and yard differential in the league. The Seahawks were flagged for 12 penalties totaling more than 100 yards in their first encounter with the Cardinals, and could find themselves with a sixth home non-cover if they continue that trend Sunday.
