Seattle at Arizona Game Preview
Seattle’s straight-up four-game winning streak came to a crushing halt on Sunday in a last minute 17-14 loss to Washington as eight-point home favorites. The Seahawks fell off the pace in the NFC West Division title race at 5-3 SU while falling to 3-5 against the spread. The total has now stayed UNDER BetAnySports’ closing betting line in three of their last four outings.
A week after Russell Wilson threw for over 400 yards and four scores in a wild 41-38 victory against Houston at home, he had trouble finding the end zone against the Redskins despite his 297 yards passing in Sunday’s loss. He completed just 53.3 percent of his 45 passing attempts while matching two scoring throws with two interceptions. This kind of inconsistency has haunted Seattle’s offense all season long.
The Cardinals were able to even their SU mark to 4-4 on the year with Sunday’s 20-10 victory against the winless San Francisco 49ers as slight 2.5-point road favorites. They improved to 2-6 ATS and the total has now stayed UNDER BetAnySports’ closing line in six of their last seven outings. Arizona is 1-2 ATS at home this season and 1-3 ATS when closing as an underdog.
Arizona had to turn to Drew Stanton as its starting quarterback in Sunday’s win with Carson Palmer done for the year with a broken arm. While he passed for a pedestrian 201 yards while completing just half of his 30 passing attempts, Stanton still tossed to touchdowns against one interception. The big story for the Cardinals’ offense on Sunday was Adrian Peterson gaining 159 yard rushing on 37 carries.

Both of these teams need to come away with a win on Thursday night it what has turned into a highly competitive playoff race in the NFC. Seattle is still the better all-round team in all three phases of the game and this time around it will not let a late lead slip away to cover the six points on the road.
