Why Bet on the Arizona Cardinals?
The Cardinals are the top team in the NFC West right now. They had a hot streak to start the season, going undefeated from Weeks 1 to 7 before losing to the Green Bay Packers in Week 8. Nonetheless, the Cardinals are back to winning ways after a strong showing in Week 12.
As a team, the Cardinals produce solid offense and defense numbers. They record 28.2 points (fourth) while allowing 18.4 opponent points (fourth) per game. In their last two wins, the side held their opponents to under 20 points.
The Cardinals are a competent rushing team. They average 123.0 rushing yards (ninth) per game. The team also averages 255.9 passing yards (tenth) per game. Overall, head coach Kliff Kingsbury helps his team achieve 378.9 yards (tenth) per game.
Defensively, the Cardinals pose a threat to the hosts. The team holds opponents to 317.8 opponent yards per game and is a top-five record in the league right now. This should worry a Bears team with one of the worst yards per game records right now at 296.1 per game.
Kyler Murray remains on the questionable list. The starting quarterback is anticipated to be ready by Week 14. Second-choice quarterback ColtMcCoy delivered solid performances as he covered for Murray in their last three outings.
Why Bet on the Chicago Bears?
The Bears recovered from a lengthy losing stretch in Week 12. It was a tough match against a struggling Lions team. Ultimately, the Bears held up and produced three crucial points in the final quarter to bring the game home.
The Bears are a defense-oriented team. They hold opponents to 334.4 yards (tenth) per game. The team limits opponent passing yards to 215.8 (ninth) per game. However, we’ve seen the team struggle with rushing plays at times. They allow 118.5 opponent rushing yards (22nd) per game.
On offense, the Bears don’t do much damage. The team averages 296.1 yards (31st) per game. There’s not much to highlight on this side of the team, but it’s worth noting that they excel in rushing plays. The team averages 126.3 rushing yards (seventh) per game. Head coach Matt Nagy should utilize this against a Cardinals team that allows 113.8 rushing yards (18th) and 4.7 yards per rush (30th) per game.
Justin Fields has been out of commission since sustaining a fractured rib against the Steelers. The team hopes to get him ready for action by Sunday. But, if he does not get cleared to play, Andy Dalton is expected to fill in for him. Meanwhile, wide receiver Marquise Goodwin and inside linebacker Roquan Smith join Fields on the questionable list due to injury.
