NFL Betting – Cardinals Look To End Six-Game Slide Against Division Rival That Started It

Posted by Tony Bryant on 11/22/2012 5:31:31 PM

The Arizona Cardinals have followed a strong start to the sports betting season with six-straight losses to fall to within one game of the NFC West division basement. Another loss when they play the St. Louis Rams this Sunday would complete the collapse. That losing streak started back in October when the 4-0 Cardinals lost 17-3 at St. Louis, and another loss to the Rams this week will push Arizona in to last place in the division.

St. Louis hasn’t been much better since that initial meeting against the Cardinals, going 0-4-1 including a 24-24 tied at the San Francisco 49ers three weeks ago. With four of their final six games on the road the Rams will need to find a way to band together and break out of their funk, and at least they have the blueprint for what it will take this week.

St. Louis has been a very average team all season, and it’s somewhat surprising that their win over Arizona came in one of quarterback Sam Bradford’s worst games. Bradford completed a season-low 7 of 21 passes for just 141 yards in the victory, and it won’t get any easier this week against a Cardinals’ defense that just picked off Atlanta Falcons’ quarterback Matt Ryan five teams a week ago. Meanwhile, the Rams could benefit from some turnovers from their own defense, which hasn’t had a takeaway since the initial meeting against Arizona. Only the 2011 Indianapolis Colts and 2006 Washington Redskins have gone five games without forcing a turnover in the last 62 years.

The Cardinals will be thrilled if rookie quarterback Ryan Lindley doesn’t turn the ball over this week, a problem that led to the first-year passer getting the start this week over both John Skelton and Kevin Kolb. Arizona head coach Ken Whisenhunt has preached accountability, but the fact that his offense couldn’t get the job done a week ago despite five interceptions from the defense should be an alarming concern. The two positives for Whisenhunt is that Lindley couldn’t be any worse than his veteran passers have been, and he will have running back Beanie Wells back in the lineup. Wells has been out since week three with a turf toe injury, and he had the best game of his sportsbook career last year against the Rams when he rushed for 228 yards.

NFL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Neither team is getting much respect in this spot, but Arizona is the home team and they have both the better rushing attack and the better defense. The Rams are still very much a work in progress, and the Cardinals have shown signs that they are close to getting back in the win column these past couple of sports betting weeks.
