Seattle Seahawks open as slight underdog against the Cardinals

The NFC West has completely baffled Las Vegas all year and the Seattle Seahawks' week seven marquee road matchup on Sunday Night Football against the Arizona Cardinals is no different.

According to OddSharks.com, the Seahawks opened up as one point underdogs on Monday, following their 26-24 home win over the Atlanta Falcons and their number one-ranked NFL offense. The Seahawks have opened up as favorite in every game this season until now. The Cardinals have yet to play in week six. They'll take on the Jets at home on Monday Night Football, which could affect the line, depending on the outcome. 

Seattle has already beaten the Jets on the road 27-17 this season.

The Cardinals are still reeling from a 1-3 start to their season and an early head injury to quarterback Carson Palmer. Palmer will return against the Jets after the team managed a victory without him against the Cardinals to move to 2-3. 

Nearly being a pick em on the road shows some solid respect for the Seahawks or lack of faith in the Cardinals. That respect and/or faith could be on the move after week six officially concludes on Monday.
