The Seattle Seahawks struggled to start the season. After scoring just one touchdown and 15 points through the first two games, it was clear something had to be done. Quarterback Russell Wilson stepped up and helped turn things around, and now the Seahawks are on a three-game win streak while averaging 30 points per game. They’ll need to build on this momentum when they face their big division rivals in Arizona this week.

 

Game of the Week

Seattle Seahawks @ Arizona Cardinals

Favourite: Cardinals -2

The Cardinals moved to 3-3 SU and ATS with a 28-3 rout of the New York Jets on Monday. Quarterback Carson Palmer looked fine after returning from a concussion, but it’s running back David Johnson that the Seahawks will have to worry about in the backfield. Johnson leads the NFL in yards from scrimmage (833) and has a league-high eight touchdowns, three of which came in the Jets game.

Meanwhile, the Seahawks lead the NFC West after a 26-24 win over the Atlanta Falcons. The win must not have been convincing because Seattle is listed as an underdog for the first time this season. They’re 6-4 SU and ATS in their last 10 games with the Cardinals, but drop to 4-6 SU and ATS in their last 10 trips to Arizona. 

 

Game with the Biggest Spread

Cleveland Browns @ Cincinnati Bengals

Favourite: Bengals -10

After falling 28-26 in Tennessee, the Browns are the only winless team in the NFL at 0-6 SU (2-4 ATS). Despite their poor record, they’ve been pretty competitive. Three of their losses were by six points or less and one was in overtime, so they’ve been close.

The Bengals, on the other hand, are 2-4 SU and ATS after a 35-17 loss in New England. They desperately need to get their season going and a meeting with their AFC North and Ohio rivals will help. Cincinnati is 7-3 SU (three wins in a row) and 5-4-1 ATS in their last 10 games against the Browns.

 

Game with the Smallest Spread

Baltimore Ravens @ New York Jets

Favourite: Pick                                                       

The Jets and Ravens are in desperate need of a momentum change, but only one will get it this week. The Jets, who won 10 games last season, have started 1-5 SU and ATS and have benched starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who’s failed to put up one touchdown in the second halves of all games this season. To make matters worse, he’s thrown for 10 interceptions during the second halves. Geno Smith will get the start as the Jets hope to spark an offense that is dead-last in points per game (15.8).

The Ravens’ offense hasn’t been much better than the Jets’, as they’re 24th in points per game (19.5). Baltimore started the season 3-0, but have lost three straight games and are trying to get back on track. The Ravens have dominated past games against the Jets, having won and covered eight of the last nine meetings.
