Cardinals Prepare for Tough Arizona Sports Betting Odds Ahead of NFL Draft

Cardinals Face Long Arizona Sports Betting Odds As NFL Draft Approaches
Fact Checked by Young Ruth

Since free agency began on March 16, the Arizona Cardinals’ Super Bowl betting odds have been steadily declining.

The Cardinals, who made their first NFL playoff appearance in five years, have lost five starters from last season’s team to free agency. Among the key players who departed are Chandler Jones, Chase Edmonds, Jordan Hicks, and Jordan Phillips.

Kliff Kingsbury’s team has acquired outside linebacker Nick Vigil from the Minnesota Vikings and re-signed punter Andy Lee, long snapper Aaron Brewer, and inside linebacker Ezekiel Turner.

The Arizona Cardinals’ GM Steve Keim’s recent moves in free agency have failed to make a positive impression on Arizona sports betting apps, as the team is currently ranked below the defending champion L.A. Rams and San Francisco 49ers on four different sites.

The odds have not been positively impacted by the uncertainty surrounding quarterback Kyler Murray. In a statement released by his agent in late February, Murray expressed his desire to stay with the Cardinals for the foreseeable future, but is looking for a substantial contract extension. Currently in the last year of his rookie deal, Murray’s future with the team remains uncertain.

Below is a summary of the Cardinals’ current position as they prepare for the upcoming 2022-23 NFL season.

Cardinals Receive Modest Super Bowl, Playoff Chances

There is cautious optimism surrounding Kingsbury’s fourth season in the desert, with the Cardinals currently ranked 12th or 13th in Super Bowl betting odds out of 32 teams.

DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona is predicting that the Cardinals will win nine games this season, which is two games fewer than their 11-6 record from last year.

DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona is offering the Cardinals the best odds of +2200 to win Super Bowl LVII, surpassing the odds provided by three other prominent sportsbooks. The championship game will take place at State Farm Stadium in Glendale.

BetMGM Arizona and FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona have bestowed the Cardinals with the second-highest odds to win the Super Bowl, coming in at +2500. If successful, this would mark the third consecutive NFL team to secure a championship victory on their home turf, following in the recent footsteps of Tampa Bay and the Rams.

According to Caesars Sportsbook, the Cardinals have the longest odds to win the Super Bowl, with Arizona listed at +3000.

The Cardinals have the top divisional odds at +270 with BetMGM Arizona and FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona, yet they are currently ranked third behind the Rams and 49ers.

The Cardinals are +300 on DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona and +320 on Caesars Sportsbook Arizona to win the NFC West.

In 2016, the Arizona Cardinals clinched the NFC West title with a remarkable 13-3 record, leading them to the NFC Championship Game.

After six years, the Cardinals are looking to secure their sixth NFL playoff berth since 2008.

Kingsbury’s Arizona team needs to make strides in sports betting, either through the NFL Draft or the remainder of free agency, to elevate the franchise to a competitive level.
