Point Spread Selection : The Seahawks did lose their last 2 games in the desert and this match-up has been trending to the home team with 4 consecutive victories straight up and against the point spread. We’re not drinking the Arizona Kool-Aid, but we do believe the ATS trend will continue for the home team. The Seahawks 20-13 victory over the Titans is a little deceiving. Tennessee was outgained 404 to 223 by Seattle and not for a blown field goal attempt that resulted in a Titans TD this game would have been an easy cover for the Seahawks. They now face the Cardinals who are 2-0 at home this season and did give the 49ers a game for the first 3+ quarters. It’s a short week. Seattle’s offensive line is still banged up with both tackles unlikely to be back for this. Look for the Seahawks to pull out the win but it will be close. Take Arizona +6 points at 5Dimes and get reduced juice on every play.
