Other AZ Odds

Before registering for an upcoming Arizona NFL betting platform, it’s crucial to pay attention to key odds as the NFL season begins. The Cardinals are anticipated to heavily depend on Kyler Murray, their starting quarterback in his third year.

PointsBet is giving the Cardinals +105 odds to win more than 8.5 games this season. Meanwhile, WynnBet has Arizona at +2000 to win the NFC, placing them in the middle of the conference standings.

Murray, the former Heisman Trophy winner and skilled quarterback, has the 10th best odds of winning the NFL’s Most Valuable Player award for the 2021 season, with odds of +2000, as reported by DraftKings.

JJ Watt, who recently signed a two-year contract with the Cardinals in NFL free agency, is currently listed at +4000 odds at Caesars to win defensive player of the year. With three previous wins of the award during his time with the Houston Texans from 2011-2020, Watt amassed 531 tackles and 101 sacks.

Zaven Collins, the inside linebacker at FanDuel, is listed with +1300 odds to win the defensive rookie of the year award.

Players from Arizona to watch closely

A.J. Green, a three-time NFL All-Pro receiver, spent nine seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals from 2011-2020, accumulating 649 receptions for 9,430 yards and 65 touchdowns. During the offseason, he inked a one-year deal worth $6 million with the team.

Green is expected to assist in relieving some of the pressure on Cardinals’ star receiver, DeAndre Hopkins, after his standout performance in 2020.

Hopkins had a standout season last year, totaling 1,407 receiving yards on 115 catches in 16 games. This accounted for nearly half of Murray’s 3,971 passing yards and 375 completions.

Green’s productivity has decreased over the last two years with the Bengals, after achieving 1,000 yards in five of his seven seasons.

There is still uncertainty surrounding his ability to bounce back from his receiving yard totals of 694 in 2018 and 523 in 2020.

Rookie slot receiver Rondale Moore has joined the Arizona roster and is anticipated to help relieve some of the pressure on Hopkins.

Moore had a standout three-year career at Purdue, showcasing his skills in all areas of the game. He totaled 178 receptions for 1,915 yards and 14 touchdowns during his time with the team. In his freshman year in 2018, Moore was honored with All-America recognition.

Should Moore and Green be able to duplicate their past achievements, the Cardinals’ passing attack could become a formidable threat in the NFL’s first-ever 17-game regular season.

During a recent media conversation, Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury suggested that he may keep his strategies under wraps on Friday.

“We were trying to hide the offense and keep it secret, but as I mentioned before, it was a mistake,” Kingsbury explained. “For the next year, we intend to be more open and play our game with more freedom.”
