The Arizona Cardinals achieved two feats that had long eluded them Sunday at Seattle.
The team’s 23-13 Week 11 win over the Seahawks secured the franchise’s first winning record since 2015, as the Cardinals moved to 9-2.
It also earned Arizona its first victory at Seattle’s Lumen Field in two years, improving the franchise’s record to 4-6 in the Emerald City dating back to 2010.
The 10-point victory Sunday bolstered Arizona’s Super Bowl odds on a number of Arizona sports betting sites.
The Cardinals are off Thanksgiving week, but will look to keep their good form going when they return to the field against Chicago at Soldier Field at 11 a.m. Arizona time Dec. 5.
Arizona Betting Odds Improve for Cardinals
Arizona’s Super Bowl betting odds improved across sportsbooks Monday, thanks in large part to the team’s performance against Seattle.
The biggest jump was at DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona, where the Cardinals went from +1100 to win it all to +900. Arizona moved from the sixth best odds to a tie for fourth in the 32-team league, alongside the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Rams.
The Cardinals also saw a sizable odds jump at BetMGM Arizona, where they went from +900 to +800 to win Super Bowl LVI, good enough for the third-best odds alongside the Buffalo Bills and Rams.

How the Cardinals Got to 9-2
The Cardinals overcame the continued absence of quarterback Kyler Murray, who has battled an ongoing ankle injury. Arizona was also without receiver DeAndre Hopkins on Sunday against Seattle.
Much of the team’s success came from backup QB Colt McCoy, who tossed two touchdowns and completed 35-of-44 passes for 328 yards.
Running back James Conner added 62 yards and a score on the ground, while newly acquired TE Zach Ertz led all Cardinals with 88 receiving yards and two scores.
The Cardinals outgained the Seahawks by 147 yards. Arizona managed to chew up clock and turn the tide of the contest early, with Ertz capping a 16-play, 82-yard touchdown drive to open the scoring in the first quarter.
The former Philadelphia Eagle added another score from 2 yards in the second quarter to give Arizona a 13-3 lead.
Conner capped the scoring on a 1-yard run with just over two minutes to play. When it was all said and done, the Cardinals covered the 4.5-point spread at Arizona sportsbooks and improved to 8-3 ATS for the season.
What’s Left on Arizona’s Schedule
After Arizona’s off week, the Cardinals play games against the Bears, Rams, Detroit Lions, Indianapolis Colts, Cowboys and Seahawks to close out the season.
Arizona faces the Bears (Dec. 5), Lions (Dec. 19) and Cowboys (Jan. 2) on the road. The Rams (7-3), Colts (6-5) and Cowboys (7-3) are the only teams with winning records left on the schedule.
The Bears (3-7) and Lions (0-9-1) are at the bottom of the NFC, meaning the Cardinals should be heavily favored in both games.
While the Cardinals look to get healthy this week ahead of the team’s Week 13 game at Chicago, the Bears play Thanksgiving Day against the Lions.
