It’s Arizona vs Seattle on Thursday Night Football this week! Who should fantasy football owners start and sit in this match-up?

It is crunch time ladies and gentlemen, and we have another exciting match-up this week for Thursday Night Football. The Arizona Cardinals are set to take on the Seattle Seahawks, and the game has massive implications for both the fantasy football playoffs and real life playoffs. The winner of this game will be in sole possession of first place in the NFC West, so you can expect the stars to ball out in primetime this Thursday.

Despite what your opinion on sports betting may be, Vegas is very in tune to these games. Over/Under totals are Vegas’ best guess at the total combined score of both teams. For example, if Vegas thinks the Chiefs are going to beat the Raiders 27-21, the implied Over/Under there is 48.

This tool is helpful because you want to pick players from games with high Over/Under point totals. Draft Kings has the Cardinals and Seahawks game set at at around 56 points with the Seahawks as three point favorites. That means that the implied score of the game is going to be 31-28 in favor of the Seahawks.

That is also an implied eight total touchdowns. That is great for fantasy football, so you are going to want to get some players from this game in your lineups to get a chance at all those sweet, sweet points. A player that I think has a good chance to deliver this week is……….
