Arizona Cardinals NFL Betting

The Arizona Cardinals were one of the NFL's most impressive teams when it comes to improvement. The Cards improved from 5-10-1 in 2019 to 8-8 in 2020. What was most surprising was the defensive growth of the team. Quarterback Kyler Murray is proving to be a fast study under head coach Kliff Kingsbury. Gamblers are taking notice of Arizona, betting them up to a win total of 8.5. While the Cardinals are the last choice in the NFC West, few would be surprised if they win the division come January.

Kliff Kingsbury was something of a surprise hire as head coach, just weeks after getting fired by his alma mater, Texas Tech. Kingsbury is known for being from the Mike Leach coaching tree and the Air Raid offense that comes with that association. However, he has proven to be more adaptable to the NFL than anyone anticipated. Kingsbury was hired precisely because of Kyler Murray needing the best possible training and guidance. Kingsbury is delivering the goods in spades.

Kyler Murray was the first overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft out of Oklahoma, where he won the Heisman Trophy in 2018. What was most remarkable is that the Texas A&M transfer played only one season as the Sooners starter. Last year, Murray made great leaps in his development. His QB rating was 94.3 with a 26/12 TD/INT ratio. In addition, Murray was second on the Cardinals for rushing with 819 yards and 11 touchdowns. Murray was 2019 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.

Murray's favorite receiver is DeAndre Hopkins. Last year Hopkins caught 115 passes for 1407 yards and six touchdowns. Hopkins cleared the 1000-yard benchmark for the fourth consecutive season and for the sixth time in the past seven years. Hopkins is a five-time Pro Bowl selection.

The Arizona defense came out of nowhere to rank 12th for points allowed and 13th overall. However, a big hole to fill comes in the person of linebacker Haason Reddick, who totaled a team-best 12.5 sacks and 20 tackles for loss in 2020. Reddick is now with the Carolina Panthers.

Tulsa linebacker Zaven Collins was the Cardinals' first pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, with Purdue wide receiver Rondale Moore going in the second round.
