Arizona Cardinals NFL Betting

A surprising Week 2 matchup of undefeated teams takes place in the desert when the Arizona Cardinals open the home portion of their schedule against the Washington Football Team. The Cardinals upset the San Francisco 49ers on opening day, winning outright as a 6.5-point dog on the closing line. It was a triumphant debut for DeAndre Hopkins, who had a career-best 14 catches in the comeback win. The Cards played the defending NFC champs tough twice last season failing to close out either game. They closed this one out with a defensive stand while racking up over 400 yards against one of last season’s top defensive squads. The Cards opened as a 6.5-point favorite against Washington. They haven’t been favored by that much in three years.

Arizona Cardinals Week 2 Matchup

With the addition of Hopkins we expected the Cardinals to be more explosive on offense. They showed off in the Bay Area scorching the Niners vaunted defense for 404 yards in their victory. More impressive was their composure, showing the ability to come back against a team that won 13 games and reached the Super Bowl a season ago. In fact, the Cards overcame two fourth quarter deficits.

Hopkins was acquired to aid a passing game that struggled at times last year. Murray worked behind a below average offensive line causing a lot of plays to break down before they got started leading to many of the problems. That wasn’t the case against San Francisco. The line held up well allowing just two sacks while opening holes for a ground game that produced 180 yards. The Cards rushed for more than 180 yards in a game just three times all of last season.

While the Cards impressed with their comeback win, the Football Team’s resurgence against the Eagles was even more impressive. Washington pitched a shutout in the second half overcoming a 17-0 deficit to claim a 27-17 victory. The presence of Chase Young on the defensive line had an immediate impact for the team formerly known as the Redskins. Young, the second player taken in the draft, registered one of eight sacks. Ryan Kerrigan led the way with a pair of sacks and Washington forced three turnovers.

San Francisco’s front was supposed to be the bigger challenge for Arizona’s rebuilt offensive line. They will face a Washington group that appears to be the strength of the team now that Young is on board.

Arizona showed a much improved defense in Week 1 holding the Niners to 366 total yards and just 2 of 11 on their third down chances. The group also stiffened in the red zone allowing one touchdown and a field goal in four chances. Washington was opportunistic on offense turning a pair of interceptions into scores. The Football Team accumulated just 239 total yards.

Arizona Cardinals Week 1 Recap

The only ones that gave the Cardinals a chance in their opener was the Cardinals. And this certainly was a different looking team than the one that won five games in 2019. Overcoming two fourth-quarter deficits, the Cards got a 1-yard touchdown run from Kenyan Drake with just over five minutes remaining to pull off the upset, 24-20.

Murray and Hopkins were stellar leading the offense to 404 total yards. Murray completed 26 of 40 for 230 yards and a touchdown, but he bewildered the Niners with his feet. Murray ran for 91 yards and a score on 13 carries. His 22-yard scramble earlier in the quarter gave Arizona its first lead at 17-14. “This is the most proud I’ve been of him because that’s a tough defense. It’s not easy to sit back there and continue to hang in the pocket, continue to make plays with your feet and he just kept fighting,” Kliff Kingsbury said of Murray.

The Niners took the ensuing kickoff and marched 78 yards in less than two minutes to retake the lead. Hopkins had a career-high 14 receptions, the last a 34-yarder that got the Cards to the Niners 1. Drake dove into the endzone on the next play for the game’s final points.

The defense took over after that. On fourth and 5 from the Cards’ 15-yard line, Jimmy Garoppolo’s pass was broken up by Byron Murphy securing the victory. The Cards improved to 5-1 ATS in their last six meetings with Frisco.
