Steelers, Cardinals garnering big attention

Steelers, Cardinals garnering big attention

As the NFL moves closer to the quarter pole of the campaign, bettors are starting to get a feel for certain patterns and trends – and their go-to teams. Here are some of the public’s preferences entering Week 3.

Not only is Arizona a 5.5-point favorite to down Buffalo in the eyes of online sports book BetDSI, the general population can’t get enough of Bruce Arians’ squad. Seventy-nine percent of wagers now come in in favor of the visiting Cardinals. After Carson Palmer & Co. laid waste to the Buccaneers, 40-7, it’s understandable to feel bullish on the defending NFC West champions. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Rex Ryan’s Bills desperately need to pull out a victory at New Era Field to avoid falling to 0-3.

Another mainstream darling: Pittsburgh and its high-flying offense. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger overcame a pair of interceptions to pilot his squad past Cincinnati last Sunday, 24-16, and 75 percent of the audience expects him to deliver another triumph vs. Philadelphia. The host Eagles, currently listed as 4-point underdogs, aren’t commanding much respect for a team that has reeled off two wins in a row. Rookie Carson Wentz should continue to produce solid numbers, too against a vulnerable Steelers secondary.

Speaking of signal-callers, Tampa Bay’s Jameis Winston recently endured that brutal bout with the Cards. Yet 72 percent of people are already so disenchanted with the Rams that they’re relying on the ex-FSU sensation in today’s 4 p.m. ET kickoff. Winston threw four picks in Week 2, but he stands a good chance of exploiting Los Angeles’ undermanned defensive backs.

Finally, 71 percent of public bettors fancy the Dolphins’ prospects of knocking off Cleveland. Miami has jumped all the way to a double-digit favorite here, and Joe Haden’s possible absence only complicates the already-tenuous situation around the Browns. Expect Ryan Tannehill to step up in a major way in South Florida.
