Why Bet on the Arizona Cardinals?
The Arizona Cardinals scored 30 points or more in each of their last three games, giving the team favorable momentum as they step inside the SoFi Stadium. In their previous game, they made light work of the Jaguars. By the end of the game, they led in total yards at 407 and forced 4 turnovers to take home the win. Kyler Murray finished with 316 yards on 28 of 34 completions and an interception.
Although they trailed in rushing yards, James Conner did well to convert opportunities, recording 43 yards on 11 carries and 2 touchdowns. Murray also had a rushing touchdown of his own on top of 19 yards and 7 carries. Over on the receiving end, it was A.J. Green and Christian Kirk who documented over 100 receiving yards each.
On defense, Jordan Hicks led the unit with 12 tackles (7 solo) and 1 sack. Marco Wilson had a great night as well with 6 solo tackles. Byron Murphy did well to produce 4 tackles (3 solo) and collect the only 2 defensive interceptions. Additionally. Markus Golden found his way to a sack and 2 tackles (1 solo).
The Cardinals look solid this weekend with a healthy defensive lineup. However, left guard Justin Pugh and right tackle Kelvin Beachum are questionable due to a back injury and a rib injury, respectively. Second right tackle Justin Murray also sustained a back injury, which requires Kliff Kingsbury to apply several lineup changes before Sunday.
Why Bet on the Los Angeles Rams?
It was a great weekend for the Rams following a victory against the Buccaneers. Although the team trailed in total yards 446 to 407, they managed to find the end zone in different ways. It’s also worth noting that the Rams produced more rushing yards and did not give the ball up throughout the game. Matthew Stafford finished his stint with 343 yards on 27 of 38 passing and 4 touchdowns.
It was a great night for the quarterback. He had the services of DeSean Jackson and Cooper Kupp, who were on fire that night. Jackson recorded 120 yards on 3 receptions and a touchdown, while Kupp had 96 yards on 9 receptions and 2 touchdowns.
Defensively, the Rams contained the persistent Buccaneers well. Kenny Young led the line with 10 tackles (8 solo) and 1 sack. Jalen Ramsey and Darious Williams did well to help out the Rams with 8 tackles (7 solo) and 6 tackles (5 solo), respectively. More than that, Leonard Floyd and Aaron Donald picked up a sack each and combined for 4 solo tackles.
What helps this Rams team achieve positive results is a healthy lineup, with the exception of Darrell Henderson Jr. Currently, the running back is placed on the questionable list. His status is worth monitoring heading into Week 4.
