Why Bet the Seattle Seahawks?

It’s easy to bet on the Seattle Seahawks. Pete Carroll and his troops have been there and done that. The Seahawks have postseason history and know what is on the line.

He also leads the team in rushing yards. Doug Baldwin is the top receiver for the Seahawks and needs 99 yards to reach 1,000.

Why Bet the Arizona Cardinals?

The Cardinals have some motivation in this game as well. The Cardinals have announced that this will be the final game for head coach Bruce Arians, and Larry Fitzgerald has hinted at retiring as well. The receiving stud has caught 101 passes for 1,101 yards and 6 touchdowns this season.

The Cardinals are huge underdogs at the Week 17 NFL Odds against Seattle.

Drew Stanton is back at quarterback for Arizona. The former Michigan State stand out has tossed the football 125 times, completing 64 of them. Stanton has 749 passing yards and 5 touchdowns. Arizona has been without top running back David Johnson the entire regular season.
