Seattle Seahawks vs. Arizona Cardinals Free Pick & Predictions 10/17/13

Richard Sherman SeahawksThursday Night Football Pick: Seattle Seahawks vs. Arizona Cardinals 10/17: Thursday Night Football this week heads to the desert, where the Arizona Cardinals are looking to get back above the .500 mark against the Seattle Seahawks, a team that pummeled them 58-0 the last time that they met last season.

The Seahawks have opened up as six-point favorites on the NFL betting lines on Thursday, and we’re here to tell you that this is a game that the hosting Cardinals can win outright.

The Seahawks are clearly one of the best teams in the league, and if not for a couple gaffes on special teams in the last few weeks, they might be a team that is 6-0 SU and ATS. However, we really don’t see it with this club on the road. The win against the Houston Texans was just handed to them. The loss against the Indianapolis Colts was an ugly one. The win over the Carolina Panthers by only five points looks worse and worse virtually every time the Panthers touch the field. RB Marshawn Lynch hasn’t looked really all that “beastly” this year, though we do admit that he is still one of the best backs in the league for sure. This is a great team, and we’re nitpicking against it, but it is nitpicking that needs to be done.

Head Coach Bruce Arians said after last week’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers that the Cards just need to stop beating themselves. He has a point. The team turned the ball over four times, including once in the red zone in what was a backbreaking interception. QB Carson Palmer has 11 picks on the year and four straight games with at least two picks. That’s bad news going against this Seattle secondary, but you can bet that all week long, a game plan is going to be installed to try to keep the ball away from DB Richard Sherman. This Arizona team, in spite of all of its issues, is still 3-3, and as Arians points out, it can beat anyone in the league. Want some proof of that? Just go back and look at the tape against the Detroit Lions or the game against the Panthers. Especially here at home, this team is lethal. Giving us six points with a team that has won six of the last seven meetings in the desert against the Seahawks is borderline unfair. We think that Arizona is winning this game outright and pulling off the big time upset.
