Cardinals vs Titans Betting Odds - If Warner is healthy, Titans' playoff hopes will die

Posted by Stan Simmons on 11/26/2009 1:18:46 PM
bet on NFLCardinals vs Titans odds feature two very hot teams. While Arizona almost has the NFC West locked up, Tennessee must scratch, claw, and possibly win-out to make the postseason. This matchup is a tough call for online betting fans and could come down to one quarterback's health.





Cardinals vs Titans betting odds: Titans -2.5 (TOTAL: 47)
WHAT: NFL betting
WHEN: Sunday, Nov. 29 at 4:15 p.m. ET
WHERE: LP Field
KEY STAT: Tennessee is 31st against the pass
PICK: Cardinals +2.5



Cardinals vs Titans betting odds maker breakdown: The Storyline
Largely thanks to the resurgence of Vince Young, the Titans are playing with the confidence and tenacity they displayed during last year's 13-win campaign. Monday's 20-17 win over the Texans made it four in a row and, at 4-6, the playoffs are suddenly a longshot.

The Cardinals have found a groove, too. They beat the Rams 21-13 last week to give them six wins in their last seven games. Another win, coupled with a Niners loss, would all but guarantee the NFC West division title.


Cardinals vs Titans betting odds maker breakdown: Offense
Young's numbers aren't especially impressive this season, but his impact can't be measured statistically. He's playing sound, mistake-free football and giving his teammates the confidence that their quarterback will make a big play when necessary. It also helps Chris Johnson is the best running back in the NFL right now, having rushed for over 100 yards in five straight games.

The Cardinals offense can score with the best of them, though. Anquan Boldin, who was nursing a leg injury thorugh the season, is finally healthy and has racked up 100 yards in each of his last two games. One cause for concern: Kurt Warner suffered a concussion last week, though he's expected to play.

Betting Edge: Even


Cardinals vs Titans betting odds maker breakdown: Defense
Since a 59-0 drubbing to the Patriots in October, the Titans have locked things down. In four games since they've allowed 13, 27, 17 and 17 points. Most teams would be happy to take that, especially with their offense playing as well as Tennessee's.

The Cardinals have been very solid defensively too, ranking 11th in the NFL at 19.7 points per game. While that's not an elite number, it's more than good enough considering their potent offense. Arizona has been very stout against the run (103.2 yards per game) but will be tested greatly by Johnson.

Betting Edge: Even


Cardinals vs Titans betting odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries
Warner passed the necessary tests and should play this week, though it hasn't been announced officially. Rookie Will Davis is out for 4-6 weeks with a torn meniscus; he had two sacks in his last three games. On the Titans side of the ball, Justin Gage has missed two straight games with a back injury and his status is unknown.

Betting Edge: Titans


Cardinals vs Titans betting odds for total: 47
Both teams are playing well offensively, although they only combined for 41 points last week. They should get on track and rack up a few more this time around, giving you enough reason to take the over at the sportsbook.

Pick: OVER 47
Cardinals vs Titans betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick
The Titans have been quite formidable during their resurgence, but they haven't faced an offense like Arizona's during the four-game winning streak. It's especially concerning since the Titans are second-last in pass defense. Essentially, it all boils down to Warner's health. If you're confident Warner is ready to go—and I am—take the Cardinals on the road. If you think Warner's head is still swimming, stay away from Arizona and take the red-hot Titans.

STAN'S PICK: Cardinals +2.5
