Seahawks vs. Cardinals 2023 NFL Week 18 Odds, Preview & Pick

By Hank Blaine

Even though Seattle blew their chance at scoring a playoff spot in the loss to Pittsburgh in NFL Week 17, the Seahawks remain a possibility to make it to the postseason. Seattle must handle their business against the Cardinals and hope for some luck to get the playoff nod. Will Seattle get it done versus a fired up Arizona team? Or will the Cards make it two straight wins against favored opponents after AZ upset the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday? Check out NFL odds, analysis, and a free pick for Seahawks at Cardinals.

Why Bet on the Seattle Seahawks?

In back-to-back wins versus the Eagles and the Titans, Seattle’s D played great. The Seahawks Jalen Hurts and Philadelphia’s offense to 17 points in a victory. Then in their next game, Seattle kept the Titans to 17 points in a 20-17 win.

However, in their NFL Week 17 loss to Pittsburgh, Mason Rudolph threw for 274 yards and Najee Harris rushed for 122 yards and a couple of touchdowns. Pittsburgh scored 30 in Seattle’s 30-23 defeat.

Seattle’s offense has hit a roadblock. Although the Seahawks boast one of the best wide receivers in the league in DK Metcalf, the star wideout can’t do everything by himself.

The 23 against Pittsburgh in the loss was the first time Seattle had scored more than 20 in their last 4. Seattle struggled against the Titans’ defense and the Eagles Swiss Cheese D even though Seattle won both games.

Why Bet on the Arizona Cardinals?

In a stunning road victory against the Eagles in their last, the Arizona defense gave up 21 points in the first half to Jalen Hurts and his mates. In the second half, Zona buckled down, yielding just 10 points.

The performance was Arizona’s best since giving up 10 to the Pittsburgh Steelers in their last win. Arizona will try the same bend but don’t break strategy versus Seattle on Sunday that they employed against the Eagles.

The Cardinals can score. Although the San Francisco 49ers blew out the Cards, AZ scored 29 in the loss. Arizona was good for 35 in the win over the Eagles.

Kyler Murray remains one of the most dynamic players in the league. Also, James Connor is having a banner season. Connor has rushed for 890 yards and 6 TDs. He’s averaging 4.9 yards per carry.

Seahawks vs. Cardinals Betting Trends

  • Seattle is 2-5 SU in the last 7 games.
  • The Seahawks are 5-1 ATS in its last 6 games against Arizona.
  • The totals went under in 6 of Seattle’s last 7 games on the road.
  • Arizona is 4-16 SU in the last 20 games.
  • The Cardinals are 6-3 ATS in its last 9 games played on a Sunday when playing at home.
  • The totals went over in 4 of Arizona’s last 5 games.

Seahawks vs. Cardinals Expert Betting Predictions

Seattle shouldn’t be the favored team. The Cardinals are at home and have the better offense. So Arizona should be the team giving up points.

The Seahawks won’t stop Kyler Murry from moving the football. If Seattle can hold the Cardinals to field goals instead of touchdowns, they will have a chance.

But even if that happens, Smith is not throwing the ball great, and Kenneth Walker III may or may not play in this contest. Arizona has momentum after the comeback win against the Eagles. Backing the home dog on the moneyline makes sense.
