Arizona Cardinals vs Seattle Seahawks was supposed to be a clash between two NFL MVP candidates, Kyler Murray and Russell Wilson. However, a few days before the Week 11 clash, it’s still unclear whether they will play as both are struggling with fitness.
The most likely scenario is that both quarterbacks will be on the field. However, we probably aren’t going to see them run around. Instead, their offensive teammates will have to do a lot of work to keep them protected, limiting the QBs to passing only.
The good news for both teams is that their signal-callers are fantastic when it comes to throwing the ball. What this means for NFL betting fans is that this is probably going to be a very close game. And close games come with attractive odds!
Cardinals vs Seahawks 2021 Betting Odds
Arizona Wants to Secure the NFC West Title
Judging by the odds available at FanDuel Arizona, the Cardinals are coming to Washington as the favorite to win the Week 11 game. No surprise there as the Cards have been sensational this season, with an 8-2 record thus far and a score differential of 287-189.
What has to worry them is that both of their losses happened fairly recently. Their 7-0 record from the start of the season was broken by the Green Bay Packers in Week 8. They rebounded the following week with a win over the San Francisco 49ers. However, in their most recent game, the Cards suffered another defeat.
It happened last Sunday when they lost to the Carolina Panthers 34-10 at home. The defeat came in as a shock, considering that Arizona was a seven-point favorite before the game. Still, it seems that the oddsmakers didn’t do their job well before that game. They made the cards the favorite, despite the fact that their best player was out with an injury.
The man in question is their starting quarterback Kyler Murray, who remains the #1 favorite for the MVP title. Unfortunately, he’s been struggling with an ankle injury, which could prevent him from doing his best against the Seahawks.
Seattle Aiming For the Wild Card
Even if they beat their divisional rivals on Sunday, the Seahawks probably aren’t going to be able to challenge the NFC West title. The thing is that their current record of 3-6 is just too bad for such a competitive division.
On the bright side, Seattle still has a decent chance to grab a Wild Card entry to the playoffs. The Seahawks are #12 in the NFC rankings, but that can easily change in the next couple of games.
Unfortunately, their recent form is suggesting such a scenario isn’t going to happen. They’re coming into Week 11 after losing four of the previous five games. What really has to worry them is that in each of those losses, they scored under 20 points.
The worst thing is that their most recent game saw them failing to score a single point against the Packers.
Arizona vs Seattle Prediction
This is going to be a very close game, probably without too many points. Still, the player quality is on the side of the visiting team, who should be able to labor a win.
