We take a look at New Years Day’s NFL clash between the Seattle Seahawks and the Arizona Cardinals and we give our tips and preview of the Round 17 match.
When: Monday, January 1, 8.25am (AEDT)
Where: Centurylink Field
The Seahawks need a win at home and hope the Panthers beat the Falcons (likely) to secure a last gasp play-off spot. The Seahawks are 4-3 in Seattle this year but should be too strong if they can fire on all cylinders especially on defence which is holding this team together, the exception being QB Russell Wilson (pictured above). I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the Seahawks’ offence must run the football more effectively if they are going to be a contender. 76 yards (29 from Wilson) wasn’t enough against the Cowboys and now they come up against the Cardinals run defence that kept the Giants to 43 rushing yards.
The Cardinals provided their fans with a home win shutting out the Giants in an otherwise disappointing season but they’ll be no joy here.
Seattle at $1.22
Arizona at $4.60
Line tip: Seattle -7.
