The first NFC West showdown between the Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals couldn’t come at a better time with both clubs above .500 and looking like serious threats. The 5-0 Seahawks are well-rested off a Week 6 bye, while the 4-2 Cardinals are looking to use a blowout Monday night win as momentum.

Seattle’s yet to play within their division, and despite being undefeated they are only two games out of last in the stellar NFC West.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Two of the most electric quarterbacks in Russell Wilson and Kyler Murray are facing off for the third time in their career, the road team winning their prior two meetings. Both are incredible with their feet, but it’s Murray who ranks highest with 370 rushing yards so far this season, sitting in 13th in the entire league.

Pete Carroll is 7-3 coming off the bye with Seattle, and his team has also won 10 of their last 12 road games. Meanwhile Arizona consistently keeps it close, going 6-2-1 ATS in their last nine. There’s some wiggle room for a Seahawks win and Cardinals cover, as oddsmakers have Seattle as a 3.5-point road favourite.

Seattle Seahawks

It’s possible safety Jamal Adams returns to Seattle’s lineup Sunday, which is massive considering the ‘Hawks defensive problems. It’s not often a team starts 5-0 with a defensive ranking last in yards against but that’s where Seattle’s at.

Russell Wilson is rightfully in the middle of MVP conversations thus far, leading the NFL in touchdown passes with 19 and blowing everyone away with a 129.8 quarterback rating. DK Metcalf’s been one of the main beneficiaries of Wilson’s play, hauling in 496 yards and five touchdowns in as many games.

The big question is whether Seattle can stop Arizona’s offence. Conventional wisdom says this will be a shootout — the total is 56 — but don’t be surprised if Pete Carroll’s bye week adjustments pay dividends.

Arizona Cardinals

A 28-point win under the lights in Dallas has got the Cardinals back in their groove and above .500 after starting out 2-0. Murray played well in the win Monday, but it was safety Budda Baker who really announced himself to the world. The league’s highest-paid safety had seven tackles, one sack, two quarterback hits, and an interception in Arizona’s latest win.

Running back Kenyan Drake posted his first 100-yard game of 2019–20 against Dallas, as many Cardinals had breakout nights. Drake rushed for 166 yards in a win over Seattle last season too. Between Drake, Murry, and Chase Edmonds Arizona ranks fourth in team rushing yards.

The Cards are also one of five teams averaging over 400 yards per game, which spells trouble for Seattle’s league-worst defence surrendering 471 yards an outing.
