Arizona Cardinals @ St. Louis Rams – Thursday October 4, 2012 8:20PM EST

It is really hard to believe that there is legitimate discussions about the Arizona Cardinals and St. Louis Rams being NFC West powerhouses this year, but that is where the NFL betting world is at. The undefeated Cardinals are sitting on top of the NFC West with the 2-2 Rams desperately trying to keep pace. In a stark contrast to last season, none of the teams in the NFC West have losing records and the San Francisco 49ers are not already running away with the division. Arizona holds an impressive win over the Philadelphia Eagles and a divisional win over the Seahawks to keep it on top of the division.

Most sports betting experts were anticipating improvement in the St. Louis Rams after Jeff Fisher was named as the team’s new head coach over the summer. But there are few experts that would have been willing to say that the Rams would be 2-2 after week four of the season. If the Rams can pull off the upset at home over the Cardinals, then the Rams would pull itself to within one game of the NFC West lead. That is certainly something that no one thought they would ever see when the 2012 season started.

Why the Cardinals Will Win

If you want to be realistic, then you would have to give most of the credit for Arizona’s 4-0 start to the defense. The Arizona defense is aggressive and opportunistic. It will definitely bend on most evenings, but it does not break. The team defense is ranked 17th overall, but Arizona is third in the league in points surrendered. When teams play the Cardinals, it does look like Arizona can be had. But one of the reasons why the Cardinals are 4-0 is because Arizona has learned how to close out games and win games late.

Why the Rams Will Win

The St. Louis Rams always knew that it had a top flight quarterback when it drafted Sam Bradford. But Bradford has never been given a chance to shine in the NFL. One of the things that Jeff Fisher is known for is developing young quarterbacks and he is doing a masterful job with Bradford. Over the course of the first four weeks of the season, Bradford has become a team leader and is doing his part to guide the Rams to a winning season. The online sportsbook bettors can see Bradford rising to the level of some of the league’s top quarterbacks as the season rolls along.

The Bottom Line

The Rams still have some developing to do before it can become a legitimate playoff contender. The Cardinals are going to have to improve its offense if it wants to stay on top in the NFC West. For now, the Arizona Cardinals have more than enough tricks to go 5-0 and send the Rams to a 2-3 record.

Pick: Arizona Cardinals
