How To Bet On Cardinals Titans – Arizona Narrows Its Quarterback Search Down to One

Posted by Tony Bryant on 8/16/2012 6:53:30 PM

By the time this preseason week three game kicks off, the football betting world should have a much better idea as to who will be the starting quarterback for the Tennessee Titans. Most fans are expecting second-year quarterback Jake Locker to get the starting nod, but many also feel that the Titans' best chance for making the playoffs lies with veteran Matt Hasselbeck.

The Cardinals look like it is just a mere formality before quarterback John Skelton is named the starter. Kevin Kolb has the big contract and all of the hype, but Kolb is either too fragile or just does not want to play quarterback in the NFL. The betting sites have not seen any heart or competitive spirit from Kolb, while Skelton looks anxious to be the starter. If quarterback was the only issue in Arizona, then this decision would probably mean a lot more.

Why the Titans Will Win

The Tennessee Titans have shown tremendous patience with problem players such as Kenny Britt. That patience could pay off when the Titans' offense hits the field in the regular season. In this game, we get to see who the Titans really feel will be its starter in 2012. It is expected that Jake Locker will see significant action in this game with Hasselbeck playing the role of backup.

The Tennessee defense already looks ready for the regular season. People never give the Tennessee defense that credit it deserves, but this is a good unit. It should be a good enough unit in the third preseason game to shut down the Cardinals.

Why the Cardinals Will Win

Arizona is a better football team with John Skelton at quarterback. Truth be told, Arizona is a better football team with almost anyone except Kevin Kolb at quarterback. To this point, the online sportsbooks have been surprised to not see much of the Arizona starting running game in the preseason. All of that should change in this game.

The Cardinals are a mystery on defense, and that will cause problems for Tennessee. Sometimes the Cardinals can put tremendous pressure on a quarterback, and other times Arizona can't get past the line of scrimmage. As Arizona figures out its starting defensive lineup, look for this unit to get better.

The Bottom Line

Arizona will continue to be a mystery until the pieces start to come together. But Tennessee knows what it is getting with Jake Locker. The pressure to start Locker from inside the Tennessee organization is pretty intense, so look for him to get the nod. But it may take a game or two before he gets into a real rhythm.

Pick: Arizona Cardinals
