Arizona Cardinals NFL Betting

Compared to other professional sports leagues the NFL season is short. But a lot can happen over the course of a few weeks. Sitting atop the NFC West following a win over the Seahawks in Week 7, the Arizona Cardinals have stumbled since their bye losing three of four and their offense has gone with them. The latest setback came in New England, 20-17, dropping the Cards to 6-5. They closed as a slight 1-point favorite losing their fourth straight against the line falling to 5-6 ATS. The Cards host the Los Angeles Rams in Week 13, the first of two games against their division rival over the final five weeks. LA and Seattle are currently ahead of the Cards in the division standings.

Arizona Cardinals Week 13 Matchup

The Cards might be feeling the pressure of being involved in a playoff race, something they haven’t experienced in five seasons. They entered their Week 8 bye off a thrilling win over Seattle that lifted them into first place in the NFC West. Things haven’t been so peachy after the return. Dropping their second straight and third in four outings since their bye, the Cards have fallen to the middle of the pack at 6-5. The good news is that the NFC isn’t as stacked at the top as the AFC and the Cards are still in a playoff spot. But they better start winning some games.

Their only post-bye victory could have easily gone the other way if not for the heroics of the “Hail Murray” that lifted the Cards to a win over Buffalo. And we’ve seen the offense, which was so explosive through the first eight games, all of a sudden go into hibernation. They entered the New England game leading the NFL in yards per game but were held to just 298 by the Pats. Two of their three lowest yardage games have come in the last two outings.

Kyler Murray is the catalyst of the offense. As he goes the Cards go. Murray completed 23 of 34 passes for 170 yards and a pick against the Pats with an additional 31 yards on the ground. Entering the contest the Cards were 1-8-1 when Murray rushed for 30 yards or less. While he did top that number on Sunday it didn’t happen until late in the game. He was limited to well under 20 yards rushing until the fourth quarter. Murray is a special player but he needs help around him to return the club to its previous offensive excellence.

Three games against division opponents in the final five weeks of the season gives the Cards a great chance to not only compete for a NFC West title, but also make a run at the postseason. Two of those games are against the Los Angeles Rams, who are a game up in the standings. Seattle leads the division going into their Monday night matchup with Philadelphia. While their sights are on the top of the division, the Cards better be aware of who’s behind them. The 49ers upset LA on Sunday, making things even tighter in what is the most competitive division in the NFL. Arizona closes the season at home against San Francisco before travelling to Southern California for the finale.

The Rams blew a chance to maintain their lead with a 23-20 loss. You can’t blame the defense for this one. Once again LA played an inspired game, but they couldn’t overcome four turnovers, three of them by Jared Goff, who has turned the ball over 14 times this season with 10 interceptions and four fumbles. One of his picks was returned for a touchdown by Javon Kinlaw that staked the Niners to a 14-3 lead.

Arizona Cardinals Week 12 Recap

A few extra days to prepare for their cross country trip and matchup with the Patriots did little for the Cardinals offense. Things started off well enough with Markus Golden intercepting a Cam Newton pass on the Pats’ opening drive setting up a short field. Murray connected with Andy Isabella on a 19-yard pass play setting up a 1-yard plunge by Kenyan Drake and a 7-0 lead a few minutes into the game. Zane Gonzalez extended the lead to 10-0 with a 47-yard field goal late in the first quarter.

The offense went silent from there allowing New England to come back. James White scored on a 7-yard run cutting Arizona’s lead to 10-7 at halftime. The Pats tied the game midway through the third with a field goal and took their first lead of the game a few minutes later. Murray’s pass was deflected and intercepted setting up White’s second score of the game with 3:30 left in the quarter. Drake scored his second rushing touchdown of the game with a little over eight minutes left to knot the game at 17-17.

Arizona had a chance to take the lead late in the fourth quarter following another interception. Dre Fitzpatrick set the Cards up for the potential game-winner, but Gonzalez missed wide right on a 45-yard field goal attempt with 1:47 remaining. With the help of a roughing penalty, the Pats got the ball to the Cards 32 setting up Nick Folk for the game-winning 50-yard field goal at the gun. The Cards were held to fewer than 300 total yards and cashed the UNDER for the second straight game.
