4 units on Seattle +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 4)  RESULT: LOSS

This is a tricky spot for the Cardinals. They have dominated at times with a big offense, but they have also shown to be a flawed team on defense. And, this is not a team that has done well on the road. The Seahawks are getting healthy and last week came within a failed 2-point conversion 3,000 miles away in Miami from taking going to OT. The offense should get a boost with Hasselbeck back at QB and healthy again. He also has Bobby Engram and Deion Branch back to throw to. The fact that the Seahawks have a downfield threat with Hasselbeck in the game should open up even more room for Julius Jones, who is already getting 4.6 ypc. The Seahawks defense (22 sacks on the season) should be able to get enough pressure on Warner to make him speed things up. Warner can at times step out of trouble, but he isn't a threat to run. He has had some horrific games in his career when pressured. This is an Arizona team that is just 9-41 in their last 50 road games. Is this year different? Nah - they stand just 2-3 this year. The Seahawks are still playing hard, and should have a different look on offense this week. They are under the radar due to their record, but with key offensive pieces back, they should be much improved. I like them in this one as a live dog.
