Seattle Seahawks @ Arizona Cardinals Free Picks
Date and Time: Thursday 10/17/13 at 8:25pm on NFL Network
Game Line: Seattle Seahawks -6.5 (from JustBet)
Over/Under: 40.5
Preview: While the Seattle Seahawks are tied for the best record in the NFC, it is clear there is still room to improve.  They’re traveling to Arizona to avoid a third straight road loss, a team who is clearly more efficient with their home field advantage.  They’ve lost six of their last seven at Arizona and are hoping their offense will come out clicking against another top-tier defense.  The Seahawks are coming into this game relatively healthy, compared to the rest of the league and they’re hoping to convert in the red zone, scoring touchdowns on just two of their last five trips, against an Arizona defense that likes to hold opposing offenses to field goals.  The Tennessee defense that gave Seattle fits last week is superior to this Arizona defense, they should have less problem moving the ball between the 20’s, but they’re going to need to finish if they’re going to cover the spread on the road.  Arizona is nursing some key injuries heading into this contest, defensive end Calais Campbell was carted off the field on Sunday and star wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is nursing a sore hamstring, as he has all season.  On paper, this seems like a cake walk for the Seattle defense but they’re 5-14 indoors since 2009, 1-6 at Arizona and 1-2 on Thursday Night.  Arizona was hoping that the addition of QB Carson Palmer would help their struggling offense, but it is clear he just isn’t the quarterback he once was.  Palmer ranks 31st in the league in QBR without scoring any points and turning the ball over at the worst possible times which doesn’t bode well against the leagues best defense.  While we typically play home dogs, especially in the Thursday night game, we just don’t see the Cardinals scoring enough points to keep this game within the number.  The Seahawks are coming into this game knowing not to take Arizona lightly, given their recent struggles against their divisional foe, they should put their best foot forward and look much less sluggish in this game than against Tennessee last Sunday.  This should be another low scoring game with plenty of penalties and turnovers, but Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch will make a huge difference and Russell Wilson has a definite advantage at quarterback over Carson Palmer.

Seahawks at Cardinals Free NFL Picks: Seahawks -6.5 and under 40.5
Seahawks at Cardinals Game Prediction: 24-13 Seahawks
What to expect in this week 7 NFL match up: 
The Arizona offense won’t be able to get anything going offensively against the Seattle defense.  The Larry Fitzgerald against Richard Sherman match up would be a fun one to watch if Fitzgerald weren’t highly questionable heading into the game, but without any offensive fire power the Seatttle offense will only need to be mediocre to win on the road here.  There should be a few Carson Palmer turnovers and penalties on both sides to help this game stay under the total while Seattle’s offense does just enough to cover the number.
