Seahawks vs Cardinals Prediction

Expect Seattle’s passing offense to deliver another strong performance, building on their recent success against Pittsburgh. Being favored by 3 on the road, I’m leaning towards Seattle to cover.

For this matchup, I’m going to be hammering the under, as our model has Seattle and Arizona combining for 45 points. Right now the over/under line is sitting at 47.5, so I’d recommend getting some action on the under.
