Why Bet on the Arizona Cardinals?
The Cardinals escaped the Vikings in a narrow 34-33 victory last weekend. In their winning efforts, Kyler Murray recorded an incredible 400 yards on 29 of 36 passing, including 3 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Rondale Moore was his number one target as the wide receiver ended up with 114 yards on 7 receptions and a touchdown. DeAndre Hopkins and A.J. Green did well to help their team make the game close, combining for 98 yards and a touchdown each. Moreover, Murray had the only rushing touchdown of Arizona and added 31 rushing yards.
Defensively, Jalen Thompson filed a team-high 8 solo tackles, while Budda Baker was not far behind with 8 tackles (7 solo). Markus Golden had the only sack of the unit on top of 3 tackles (3 solo). Isaiah Simmons ended his night with 8 tackles (6 solo) and proved to be a pivotal component of the Cardinals’ win. With a healthy squad, head coach Kliff Kingsbury looks forward to another great performance when they hit the road to face the Jaguars.
Why Bet on the Jacksonville Jaguars?
Currently, the Jaguars hold the last place in the AFC South and try to recover from two underwhelming games. It’s been a while since we saw the team appear in the playoffs, and head coach Urban Meyer will try to turn things around in his first year. In their losing efforts against the Broncos, Trevor Lawrence was held back to 118 passing yards on 14 of 33 passing.
The quarterback managed to score a touchdown and make 2 interceptions, but he has to step up if he wants to put pressure on the Cardinals’ defense. Marvin Jons led the receiving end with 55 yards on 6 receptions and a touchdown, while James Robinson produced 47 rushing yards on 11 carries.
Looking at the offensive unit, Laviska Shenault Jr. might miss the next game due to a suspected shoulder injury he suffered in the Jaguars’ previous game. A.J. Cann remains questionable as well, while James O’Shaughnessy is out with a sprained ankle.
On defense, Rayshawn Jenkins documented 6 solo tackles against the Broncos. Andrew Wingard follows closely with 8 tackles (5 solo) and a sack. Additionally, Adam Gotsis and Josh Allen filed the 2 other sacks in the night. C.J. Henderson is questionable for the next game after suffering a hip injury last weekend. The cornerback was able to record 4 tackles (3 solo) before stepping off the field.

Cardinals vs. Jaguars Expert Betting Predictions
The Cardinals have the upper here. They did well offensively against a courageous Vikings team in their last game. And with two wins in the bag, they hold more momentum than the Jags. Meanwhile, the Jaguars have to be at their best if they want to take the win. Although there’s a good chance that the Jaguars cover the spread, we expect them to go all out to try and find win number one with the help of their home crowd.
