According to Odds Shark, the Seahawks will move to 2-2 by beating the Arizona Cardinals this week. Let’s hope the odds are correct.

The Seahawks have struggled offensively for the most part in 2018. Still, with a win this coming Sunday Seattle would even their record. With the rest of the NFC West deteriorating (except for the Rams, of course), Seattle has several chances to pick up wins against inter-division opponents.

Those wins, against the weak Arizona Cardinals and the weakened San Francisco 49ers, should start Sunday. Seattle travels to Arizona and is favored to win. According to Odds Shark, the Seahawks are a 3 point favorite.

Las Vegas and oddsmakers don’t like to miss of betting lines because they loses them money, of course. But Vegas has a pretty good reason for favoring the Seahawks: The Cardinals offense is terrible. And Seattle’s defense, even without Richard Sherman, Michael Bennett and others, is pretty decent. So far.

The Cardinals will be starting Josh Rosen this week against Seattle. Rosen might play well enough but his offensive line is putrid. And running back David Johnson has not yet been able to run very well while returning from his 2017 injury.

The Seahawks are ninth against the pass three weeks into 2018. Earl Thomas and Bradley McDougald are not only the best safety duo in the NFL right now, they may individually be the best safeties. And it is difficult for any rookie to have a lot of success his first game as a starter.

According to Odds Shark, “Seattle isn’t the power it used to be, but the Seahawks fight every week and have the talent to make a run in the NFC.”

dark. Next. The Earl Thomas situation

A positive thing for Seattle is they have an overall young team and one really that is still learning to play well together. Arizona is mostly old. The Seahawks don’t want to go 1-3 with a loss. And Arizona has to know that they have no shot at the playoffs.
