Although the Arizona Cardinals only matched the previous year's record under the new coaching staff, NFL bettors can't deny the team's consistent effort for Jonathan Gannon week after week. While their 4-13 SU record was not impressive, the Cardinals' 9-7-1 performance against the closing NFL odds certainly was. The team consistently played hard for their new coach, but the roster wasn't strong enough, as evidenced by their 0-6 SU record against divisional opponents. This is further highlighted by the fact that the over cashed in ten of their 17 games, primarily due to a defense that allowed the most points in the division and the second most in the NFL (26.8 PPG). Now in the third year of the roster rebuild and second under the new coaching staff, GM Monti Ossenfort has done a commendable job building the team from the ground up.

More weapons were added during the offseason through the NFL Draft, trades, and free agency. Focusing more on the future than the present, the Cardinals utilized 12 draft picks to strengthen both sides of the ball. They selected arguably the best wide receiver with the fourth overall pick in Marvin Harrison Jr., and bolstered their defense later in the first round and early in the second with the additions of Mizzou DE Darius Robinson and Rutgers CB Max Melton. Melton will join free agent acquisition Sean Murphy-Bunting in the secondary, aiming to improve a pass defense that ranked No. 13 last season. However, the run defense was a different story, as it allowed a league-worst 143.2 yards per game and 4.7 yards per carry (No. 28). With the offense likely to improve now that a healthy Kyler Murray will have a full offseason, the team's success throughout the 2024-25 NFL betting season will largely depend on the defense's ability to make significant improvements across the board.

The Cardinals' passing attack was lackluster last season, averaging fewer than 185 yards per game (No. 26) with a total of 18 touchdown passes thrown amongst Murray, Joshua Dobbs, and Clayton Tune. Tight end Trey McBride led the team with 825 receiving yards, followed by Marquise Brown (574), Michael Wilson (565), and Rondale Moore (352). Brown and Moore are no longer on the roster, having been replaced by Marvin Harrison Jr. and veteran Zay Jones, who signed a one-year deal in the offseason. Wilson and Jones are likely to play supporting roles to Harrison Jr., who is expected to have a monster rookie season with a projected total receiving yards prop of 1,025.5. This high expectation puts him close to veteran Davante Adams, who is set at 1100.5 yards. With that, it comes as no surprise that Harrison Jr. is the only non-quarterback considered to be a serious contender for the Offensive Rookie of the Year Award (+650).

With James Conner looking to build upon another electric season in the desert that saw him exceed the 1,000 rushing yard plateau for the first time in his career and MHJ snatching passes downfield, the Cardinals just might have an offense in place to contest the tough nosed defenses at the top of the division standings and have a puncher’s chance of making even more noise against non-divisional opposition. Again, that will all boil down to how well the defense adapts with the new faces littered throughout. B.J. Ojulari proved to be a great get for the defense in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft. All eyes will now be laid upon Darius Robinson as he looks to put a jolt into a lacking Arizona pass rush that tallied just 33 quarterback sacks, amounting to the third fewest in the league only ahead of the Chicago Bears and Carolina Panthers.

Consistency will be crucial for the Cardinals in the 2024-25 NFL betting season as they aim to field a competitive team week in and week out. The team's success will depend on navigating what Sharp Football Analysis deems a league-average schedule strength (No. 16). Despite an expected improvement in win production with the team’s win total odds up to 6.5 from 4.5 last year, the Cardinals face a challenging season. Nine of their 17 games will be played at State Farm Stadium, where they have struggled evidenced by 8-22 SU and 12-18 ATS records put forth over the last 30 games. The schedule includes matchups against the NFC West, NFC North, AFC East, Washington Commanders, Los Angeles Chargers, and Carolina Panthers. Even so, NFL bettors seem optimistic about the Cardinals ending their two-season under streak, as evidenced by the heavy -170 juice on the over.

Founded in 1920 as the Chicago Cardinals, the Arizona Cardinals have a storied history marked by periods of frustration and futility. While based in Chicago, the Cardinals often found themselves overshadowed by the Chicago Bears, winning only two championships before relocating to St. Louis in 1960. Most seasons during their Chicago tenure were marked by losing records.

Upon moving to St. Louis, the Cardinals were warmly received, but the pattern of losing persisted. During their time in St. Louis, the team made the playoffs only three times. Unable to secure a new stadium agreement, the franchise relocated to Arizona in 1988. The change of scenery didn't alter much, as the team's first playoff appearance didn't come until a decade later, when they were waxed by Randy Moss and the Minnesota Vikings in the Divisional Round.

In Arizona, the Cardinals have experienced their most successful era, although it remains modest compared to many other NFL franchises. Since 1998, the Cardinals have made the playoffs six times. The pinnacle of their success came in the 2008 season when they reached the Super Bowl for the first time in franchise history, ultimately losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
