Arizona Cardinals Betting Trends

The Cardinals are winless at 0-4 against the spread in their last four games overall, are 3-9 against the number in their last 12 conference games, and have lost six of eight on the road at the betting window. They're also just 4-12 against the spread in their last 16 games when facing an opponent with a winning record.

Philadelphia Eagles Betting Trends

The Eagles are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games played in Week 5, are 5-2 against the number in their last seven games overall, but are just 10-22-1 against the spread in their last 33 games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous contest.

OUR PREDICTION: The Cardinals' injury report was long and extensive before last week. Now it's even longer and more extensive. The team had to place Markus Golden on injured reserve due to a season-ending knee injury and while he wasn't sacking the quarterback like he was a year ago, he was still generating pressure. That's a hit for a defense that will also be without Robert Nkemdiche (calf) as well. Offensively for the Cardinals, their line is a mess. Guard Alex Boone is questionable with a chest injury, tackle D.J. Humphries is out with a knee injury, and Mike Iupati landed on injured reserve earlier this week. This is all for an offense that is already without its best player in David Johnson. Carson Palmer and Larry Fitzgerald pulled a rabbit out of a hat a week ago versus the 49ers at home, but I hate Arizona in this spot. The Cardinals are banged-up, flew cross-country this week, and are facing an Eagles team that is better than people expected it to be before the season.
