The Seattle Seahawks are a media darling in the preseason with the emergence of the feel-good story that is rookie quarterback Russell Wilson.Wilson outplayed highly-paid free-agent Matt Flynn in the preseason to steal the starting job and will take the field this Sunday in Arizona. Unfortunately that first start will be a loss.
The Cardinals are at home and although they had a similar quarterback controversy, John Skelton is tabbed as the starter.
The locker room applauds this decision and many of the players, including standout wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, are thrilled that Skelton is under center. The Cardinals finished the season on a 7-3 ATS run to end the season and that should carry over to this year. The Cardinals have injury issues with Beanie Wells gimping into this game, but they have a suitable backup in Ryan Williams.
The Seahawks also have injury concerns at running back as Marshawn Lynch is questionable with back spasms. So how are the Seahawks road favorites? The answer is they should not be favorites and this would make this line a mistake. The sports consensus shows that 71% of the public is betting on the road team in this game, but there is no real reason to back that pick up.
Fade the public, get on the big home dog and take the Cardinals to be the biggest upset of week1 in the NFL!
