Road Loser Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals Preview

Arizona was lucky in Week 1 and looked bad in Week 2. Fortunately for Cardinals bettors, they face a team that was mediocre in Week 1 and dreadful in Week 2.

As a result, Arizona opened as 3.5-point road favorites in this NFC West battle in Week 3 against a team that has lost 8 straight on the road. Don't be fooled into thinking they covered a lot of spreads either, because the Seahawks are 1-7 ATS in those games.

The Seahawks are also a money-sucking 2-8 ATS past 10 games as an underdog.
