Arizona Cardinals vs Seattle Seahawks Prediction

  • Seattle Seahawks have won their last three games in a row
  • Seattle Seahawks have covered the spread in their last three games.
  • Seattle Seahawks’ last three away games went over.

The Arizona Cardinals (3-5) welcome the Seattle Seahawks (5-3) to the State Farm Stadium for another divisional match-up in the NFC West on Sunday. The Arizona Cardinals hold fourth place in the NFC West after winning three of their eight games, while five wins from eight matches leaves the Seattle Seahawks first in the division standings. The oddsmakers certainly favor the Arizona Cardinals for victory when the Seattle Seahawks come knocking this coming Sunday. However, with the visitors coming off the back of some good wins, they might just prove to be a tough nut to crack at the State Farm Stadium.

Arizona Cardinals Form

The Arizona Cardinals are 3-5 for the season and their latest match against the Minnesota Vikings ended in a 34-26 defeat. They are 3-7 across their past 10 games and 1-4 in the last five at home.

The Arizona Cardinals continue to put up decent numbers in offense, scoring 24.0 points in their last five matches. Considering their season average is 22.8 points, this suggests the offensive unit is consistent. On the other side of the ball, the defense has been relatively average in the league recently. The hosts have given up 24.6 points in the previous five outings, which is more or less on par with the 26.3 points they’ve allowed per game over the course of the regular season.

In 2021, the Arizona Cardinals came home in second place in the NFC West standings after going 11-7 across all games. The hosts naturally hope to go even better this season. However, like every other team in the NFL, sealing a spot in the playoff during this regular season is the first and foremost priority for now.

Seattle Seahawks Form

Form is really looking good for the Seattle Seahawks after claiming a 27-13 win against New York Giants last week. The victory extended their winning streak to three matches, improving their regular season record to 5-3. They are also 2-2 on the road.

The offense has continued to torment opposing defenses consistently, averaging 32.6 points in the last five matches. This leaves the Seattle Seahawks’ tally for the season at 26.3 points overall. A below-average defense isn’t what any traveling team wants to hear, but that’s how it is for the Seattle Seahawks. The visitors have allowed a nerve-wracking 24.9 points per game this year.

2021 was a year of doom and gloom for the Seattle Seahawks. A 7-10 record left the home team fourth in the NFC West and out of the playoffs. However, they entered this season billed as an early postseason threat, and judging by their 5-3 start this time around, they’re on target to do just that.
