Arizona Cardinals NFL Betting Online

The Arizona Cardinals have looked like world beaters through the first two weeks of the NFL betting season when only accounting for the first half of their first two games played against NFC East reps Washington and New York. They held a 13-10 halftime lead over the Commanders and an inexplicable 20-0 lead over the Giants. Unfortunately, Jonathan Gannon’s troops went on to drop both games to enter this Week 3 home tilt against the Dallas Cowboys one of eight teams yet to feel the thrill of victory with both of Week 2 MNF contests yet to play out at the online sportsbook. This team gets an A+ for the way its competed to this point, but will need to pull out all the stops just to stay within the lofty NFL odds let alone win the game as locked in the Cowboys have looked in carefree wins against the Giants and Jets over the last two weeks.

Arizona Cardinals Week 3 Matchup

On Sunday, September 24, 2023, the Arizona Cardinals will host the Dallas Cowboys from State Farm Stadium in Glendale, AZ. Kickoff time is set for 4:25 p.m. ET with television coverage on FOX.The betting line for this NFC tussle opened with the Cardinals installed 10.5-point underdogs and the total lined 42. As dominant the Dallas defense has looked through the first two weeks of the young season, it comes with little surprise to see the NFL betting market fading Arizona per early week wagering reports. The point spread has already jumped up to +13 though heavier -113 juice is currently attached to the Cardinals side of the impost. Last week’s loss to the Giants saw Zona fall for the ninth straight time when catching points at home dating back to the 2020 season. The over cashed at a 4-4-1 clip in those contests with an average of 47.9 points scored. As such, the total has also moved with it bet up 1.5-points to 43.5 at the time of this writing. Dallas ranking out amongst the league leaders in forced turnovers largely has something to do with that since it’s hard to believe total bettors are of the belief Joshua Dobbs will have the wherewithal to run effective offense against the league’s No. 1 ranked DVOA defense to this point of the season. That being said, the Cardinals have dominated the recent rivalry coming out on top in six of the last seven meetings both SU and ATS dating back to 2008!

Arizona Cardinals Week 2 Recap

If NFL teams were awarded wins for the effort put on the field every passing week, the Arizona Cardinals would be 2-0 heading into the third week of the NFL betting season. Gannon’s troops suffered a tough beat in Washington to kick off their respective campaign, and followed it up with a tough-to-stomach 31-28 loss to the New York Giants in Week 2. If only the game was 30 minutes long! If it had been, Zona would’ve cruised to the impressive 20-0 outright win. Unfortunately, two halves are played in the game NFL bettors know and love. Because of it, the Cardinals got outscored 31-8 over the final 30 minutes and went down in defeat a second straight week. The end result proved to be one of many positive results for the online sportsbook with Zona only taking in 20 percent of the bets and 21 percent of the money leading up to kick-off. After struggling to get much of anything done against a stout Commanders defense last week, the Dobbs-led offense racked up 379 yards and averaged 6.3 yards per play against the Giants defense this past Sunday. RB James Conner went for 106 yards and a score on the ground, while TE Zach Ertz and WR Michael Wilson led the team with 56 receiving yards each and WR Marquise Brown hauled in the lone receiving touchdown. After stymying Daniel Jones and Co. in the first half, the defense folded like a cheap suit in the second and allowed “Dimes” and Saquon Barkley to rip them a new one. When the dust settled on the tough-to-stomach closing moments defeat, New York racked up 439 total yards with 312 of them coming through the air. The unit allowed a 58 percent success rate on third down and saw the GMEN score on 4-of-5 red zone penetrations.

Founded in 1920 as the Chicago Cardinals, the Arizona Cardinals have a long and winding road of history that includes a lot of frustration and futility.

While in Chicago, the Cardinals were always operating in the shadow of the Chicago Bears. Before moving to St. Louis in 1960, the Cardinals won only two championships. Most seasons were losers.

St. Louis immediately took to the Cardinals, but the losing continued. During their time in St. Louis, the Cardinals made the playoffs only three times. After failing to agree to a new stadium, the franchise moved to Arizona in 1988.

The Cardinals have had their greatest era of success in Arizona, although it is relatively modest compared to the better NFL franchises. The Cardinals have made the playoffs six times since 1998. The 2008 Cardinals made the franchise’s only Super Bowl appearance, losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
