NFL Sunday Night Football Week 7 Odds
The only unbeaten team in the NFC, the Seattle Seahawks, visit the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday Night Football in Week 7. The NFL originally had the Bucs visiting the Raiders but because of coronavirus concerns, that game was moved to an afternoon start, while the Seahawks and Cardinals were moved to Sunday Night Football on NBC. The choice by NBC could end up being a good one, as many of the games this season for the Seahawks has come down to the final possession and all of their games have been high scoring.

Seattle Seahawks -3
Arizona Cardinals +3
The Seahawks are the highest scoring team in the NFC averaging almost 34 points per game, but their defense is giving up 27 points per contest. Seattle is winning games on the arm of Russell Wilson who is the early favorite to win the league MVP award. Wilson will need to be great again because the Cardinals come into this game at 4-2 with an offense that looks vastly improved with the addition of DeAndre Hopkins. Seattle is coming off their bye week, while the Cardinals are coming off a win over Dallas on Monday night.
Seattle head coach Pete Carroll said his team had a great bye week. "It just seemed more connected than normal," Carroll said to the media, "I don't remember going on the practice field after a bye with the guys all fired up like they were. We were just out there just as a regular 'Bonus Monday' for us and get back in action, start moving around. And they're all out there standing in line ready for us to stretch them out over five minutes early. ... It was a really good response to coming out of this thing."
The Seahawks have been the cardiac kids of the NFL this season with three of their wins coming in the final 15 seconds. Wilson has thrown 19 TD passes this season and leads the NFL with a 129.8 quarterback rating.
On the other side, Kyler Murray threw two touchdowns and ran for another in the win over Dallas. Murray said he can play a lot better.” It wasn't as good as it should have been," Murray said to the media, "Wasn't as accurate as I should have been. Wasn't up to par for my standards, so I've got to be better." The favorite target for Murray has been Hopkins who leads the league in catches (47) and receiving yards (601).
The Arizona defense played well last week, as they got four turnovers in the win over Dallas. "They played great," Murray said to the media about the defense. "Great's not even the word. I don't even have a word for it."
Seattle has been a really good road favorite, going 13-4-1 ATS in their last 18 road games. The Seahawks have also been a good team to bet under the total on the road, as the Under is 9-2 in the Seahawks last 11 games as a road favorite. The Under is 4-1 in the Cardinals last 5 home games.
There is a good chance this line goes to 3.5 and the points look to be worth taking. Seattle has played close games all season and the underdog in this series is 8-1-1 ATS in the last ten meetings. We’ll look for a close game that Arizona covers and one that goes over the total.
