Trusted by FOX Sports Betting Analyst Geoff Schwartz:
Two disappointing teams facing each other in the desert.
The Rams are 1-1, but they had to fight an exuberant Falcons team who were under 31-10 at the start of the quarter but were driving to take the lead in the final two minutes before losing 31-25.
Arizona were smoked by the Chiefs in the first week and needed a historic comeback in extra time to beat the Raiders after entering the interval under 20-0.
After two weeks, the Cardinals and Rams ranked 28th and 29th in team efficiency respectively, with the Cardinals weighed down by a 30th ranked defense and the Rams with the 32nd special team ranked.
When two teams look alike on paper I get the points, especially when I get the three plus hook. There is some concern with this bet because Sean McVay’s Rams dominated the Cardinals, going 10-1 straight.
However, this number for the Cardinals is too juicy not to bet.
Choose: Arizona (+3.5 on FOX Bet) loses by less than 3.5 points (or wins outright)
