How To Bet On Broncos Cardinals – Cardinals Still Without Starting Quarterback

Posted by Tony Bryant on 8/30/2012 7:11:34 PM

The Arizona Cardinals couldn’t convince four-time NFL MVP Peyton Manning to finish his career in the desert and give them hope of getting back to the playoffs in 2012. While it’s only natural for Cardinals’ head coach Ken Whisenhunt to be upset about missing out on the future Hall of Fame passer, the fact that he still hasn’t felt comfortable enough to announce who his starter for this season will be is proof that missing out on Manning hurts hard. Arizona will begin the regular season with either Kevin Kolb or John Skelton under center, and while Whisenhunt hasn’t decided between the two of them yet it will be rookie Ryan Lindley who gets the start against Denver in their final preseason game this online sports betting week.

While common sense would tell the average fan that starting Lindley in this exhibition game is an indication Whisenhunt is leaning towards him as the starter, he also revealed earlier this week that regardless of how good or bad he performs the rookie will not be pat of the equation for the regular season. Whether or not that means Kolb or Skelton will play at some point of this game is still not known, but the one certainty will be Manning watching from the sidelines happy he did not become part of that mess.

Manning didn’t look great in the preseason, but he made progress up until last week’s shredding of the San Francisco 49ers’ defense and should be ready to go for week one. The Broncos will give Brock Osweller and Caleb Hanie a good look to see what they have behind Manning should he get injured, while the trio of Lance Ball, Ronnie Hillman, and Knowshon Moreno appear to be competing for two roster spots. Defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio always demands the most of his players and expects the second and third-string players to play at a high level, so even if he sits his starters in this game the Broncos won’t make it easy on Arizona.

Kolb and Skelton should see time at some point in this game, and based on what we have seen so far that might not make much of a difference. Kolb appears to be the better passer and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he starts, but he needs to stop making the dumb mistakes at crucial points in games that have plagued him to this point. The Cardinals’ defense is a lot better than it gets credit for, and has had a hard time staying off the field this preseason. Arizona is looking for any hint of optimism heading in to the regular season, so look for Whisenhunt to play this game as if the result has some importance.

NFL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

At just 2.5 points, the Cardinals are definitely worth the online sportsbook play in this situation, where it looks like they will approach this game with more urgency than Denver. The Broncos feel they are already a playoff contender and while they look to avoid injury and get through one last meaningless game, Arizona will come out and play like it matters.
