Friday November 13th, 2015

The NFL wraps up Week 10 Sunday action with a huge NFC West matchup featuring the Seattle Seahawks hosting the Arizona Cardinals. The Seahawks opened as 2.5-point favorites, and the line has settled with them favored by three at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.

The moneyline has the Seahawks between -160 and -170, and the Cardinals between +140 and +150.

The Seahawks are 4-1 straight up and against the spread in their last five games against the Cardinals according to the OddsShark NFL Database, and they are 4-1 against the spread in the last five games between these two in Seattle.

The Cardinals enter this game 6-2 straight up and 5-3 against the spread, and are coming off a win straight up and against the spread against the Cleveland Browns. They are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven road games, and 5-3 against the spread in their last eight games as an underdog.

However, the Cardinals are coming off a bye, and are 1-4 against the spread the last five years coming off a bye.

The Cardinals are expected to have their full contingent of receivers for the first time in a while against Seattle. John Brown is limited in practice this week, but is expected to play after sitting out Week 8. Center Lyle Sendlein and cornerback Jerraud Powers are both listed as limited this week.

The Seahawks enter this game 4-4 straight up and 2-5-1 against the spread. They are coming off a straight up win and against the spread loss to the Dallas Cowboys prior to their own bye. The Seahawks' previous strength at home has been under duress lately, as they are just 1-4-1 against the spread in their last six home games.

Seattle is also just 2-6 against the spread in its last eight games as a favorite.

The Seahawks' injury report includes Marshawn Lynch with his normal rest day. The notable name is left tackle Russell Okung; the Seahawks deactivated him in Week 8, but he is expected to be back in the lineup for Week 10.

The point total is set at 45 at the sportsbooks. The total has gone UNDER in six of the last seven games between these two in Seattle. The total has gone OVER in four of the Cardinals' last five road games, and four of the Seahawks' last six home games.

The OddsShark Computer predicts a 23.8-19.3 Seahawks victory. That would provide for a Seahawks cover and the UNDER.
