Arizona at Seattle Week 12 Betting PredictionNoah Williams
The not so super defending Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks (6-4, 2nd in NFC West) host the NFL league leading Arizona Cardinals this Sunday in week 12 NFL betting action. This will be the first meeting this season between these two NFC West rivals.
The Seahawks are one touchdown favorites over the Cards at CenturyLink Field behind the support of the coveted 12th man.

Analyzing My Arizona at Seattle Week 12 Betting Prediction
The Cardinals have had to deal with injuries and suspensions to key players all season, but they lead the NFC West by three games and have the best record in the NFL. However, they are still behind the Pats, Broncos and Packers in the Super Bowl conversation…but they keep on winning.
With QB Carson Palmer out for the season, back up Drew Stanton will have to lead this team. The Cardinals offense is averaging 23.7 points and 333 yards per game both of which rank in the middle third of all NFL teams. Their defense allows a third best in the NFL 17.6 points per game and a 13th best 343.7 yards per game and they are plus 11 in turnover ratio.

The Seahawks were the clear favorites to repeat as Super Bowl champions coming into the season, and after beating the Packers and Broncos in the first few weeks, they sure looked like it. Then all of a sudden, the bounces that this team use to get last year starting going their opponents way. As the sub par play and losses begin to mount, the tracks in the locker room began to show as they managed to go only go 4-3 in their next seven games.
The Seahawks shipped troublesome WR Percy Harvin to the New York Jets in hope of turning back to their winning ways, but now an unhappy Beast Mode Marshawn Lynch and reports of a locker room that may be divided over QB Russell Wilson are carrying the conversation. They had won three games in a row until last week when they lost to the Kansas City Chiefs in Seattle.
The Seahawks offense ranks 10th in points per game at 26 and 11th in yards per game at 366 but I hasn’t led to consistent wins. The Seahawks defense allows 21.5 points per game which ranks 12th and they are third in the NFL allowing 306.1 yards per game.
Seattle is 15-6 against the spread against a team with a winning record, 19-8 against the spread against the NFC, and 1-5 against the spread in their last six games. Arizona is 7-1 against the spread in their last eight road games, 4-1 against the spread against the NFC West, and 6-2 against the spread against a team with a winning record. The home team has covered the spread in 11 of the last 16 meetings of these two.
My NFL week 12 betting prediction is that Seattle may win this game, but they will NOT cover the 7 point spread. Bet the Cards at +7.
