Kyler Murray Over/Under 257.5 passing yards

Murray has averaged 287 passing yards per game over his last four tilts, albeit against pass defense units in the Los Angeles Rams, Detroit Lions, Indianapolis Colts, and Dallas Cowboys that all rank outside the Top 15 in the NFL. However, Murray has his easiest task yet in this span (at least on paper), as he takes on a Seahawks pass defense that’s 31st in yards allowed per game (270.4).

Seattle has been burned for over 257.5 passing yards in nine of their 16 games this season. That includes their Week 11 matchup with the Cardinals, when backup quarterback Colt McCoy went for 318 yards through the air on the road.

With the Seahawks mustering just 29 sacks all year – tied for 28th in football – Murray should have plenty of time to go through his progressions and rack up the passing yards for Over bettors.

NFL pick: Over (-115)


Player to have most passing yards: Murray vs. Wilson

This could be either a double-dip opportunity or a saver bet for Murray backers, as Wilson should have a hard time matching the Arizona quarterback’s output.

Wilson – whose Over/Under was set much lower at 231.5 passing yards – has failed to clear Murray’s bar of 257.5 in nine of his last 10 starts. He’ll also take on a Cardinals defense that’s seventh in passing yards allowed per game (213.5).

The juice is significant, but price seems more than fair.

NFL pick: Murray to have most passing yards (-186)


Kyler Murray Over/Under 1.5 pass TDs

Passing for touchdowns could be an area where Murray struggles on Sunday, and Under bettors may get rewarded at fair odds.

Seattle has allowed 23 touchdowns through the air this year – a respectable ninth in the NFL. Murray has produced a grand total of six touchdowns over his last six outings.

With touchdown machine James Conner (heel) potentially rejoining the Arizona backfield with Chase Edmonds, Murray could yield the scoring plays to his tailbacks.

NFL pick: Under (+128)
