The Seahawks are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games in November and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Cardinals are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 home games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 vs. NFC West. The over is 4-1 in Seahawks last 5 road games. The under is 5-2 in Cardinals last 7 games overall. The Seahawks are 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 meetings in Arizona. The road team is 11-4-1 ATS in their last 16 meetings.
The Arizona Cardinals are in must win mode, and they're in a better position to win with Hopkins back on the roster. However, the Cardinals being favored is a bit strange given that they've had no home success dating back to last season, and they're not playing well on either side of the ball. The Seattle Seahawks have clearly played the better ball, and that includes having an offense that's fourth in scoring. A Cards' victory wouldn't surprise me, but we're getting the better team in the underdog role, and it's just that simple.
