How To Bet On Eagles Cardinals – Eagles, Cardinals Clash In Meeting Of Unlikely 2-0 Teams

Posted by Tony Bryant on 9/19/2012 6:49:37 PM

The Philadelphia Eagles lead the NFL in turnovers with nine through their first two games, nearly double the amount of the team next in line in that category. Somehow they are also 2-0 for the first time since Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens led them to the Super Bowl in 2004, the first team in NFL history to record consecutive wins with at least four turnovers in each of them. The Eagles will face another tough test this week against another surprising 2-0 team in the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals became the first visiting team to upset the New England Patriots in a home opener at Gillette Stadium in 11 years, and are the most unlikely of undefeated teams heading in to week three.

A tough defense and efficient offense have been the keys to Arizona’s success early on, even with Pro Bowl wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald finished last week’s win with just one reception for four yards. The Cardinals will be put to the test again this week, and the key could be forcing Michael Vick and the Philadelphia offense to continue turning the ball over.

The fact that the Eagles are 2-0 despite turning the ball over nine times should be alarming to every other team in the NFC, because they have found ways to win despite making as many mistakes as seemingly possible. Michael Vick has to understand he can’t continue to be so reckless with the football, and once he does it could mean even more production from the offense. DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin should be healthier this week and that will mean less of a reliance on tight end Brent Celek. While all of the talk was about the offense, the Philadelphia secondary looked very good against the Baltimore Ravens’ wide receivers and matches up well against Arizona this online sportsbook week.

The Cardinals continue to find ways to win, but if they are going to sustain that level of success over the course of the season they will need to get Fitzgerald more involved in the offense. Arizona struggled to move the ball on the ground last week, but Kevin Kolb has looked good in five quarters of action and should be able to do more as he continues to gain more confidence. The Cardinals’ defense shut down the Seattle Seahawks on four-straight plays with goal to go late in the fourth-quarter of their week one win, and looked very good again last week against one of the best offenses in the NFL.

NFL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

For as much as the sports betting experts were down on Arizona to start the season, this team has been excellent through two games and have executed without turning the ball over in a pair of wins. The same cannot be said about an Eagles’ team that has won their two games despite nine turnovers, and while that is a sign of what this team will be capable of when they stop giving away the football, it may take a loss or two for Vick and company to finally learn their lesson. The Cardinals may not win this game, but after watching Philadelphia win its first two games by a single point there is no reason not to take the four-point cushion with Arizona at home.
