Cardinals are expected to win against Rams.

Arizona sportsbooks are giving the Cardinals a slight edge over the Rams in their 40th Monday Night Football game.

As of Monday morning, DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona and FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona both have the Cardinals listed as -2.5.

At BetMGM Arizona, the oddsmakers have favored Arizona by 3 points with odds of -105.

If you’re looking to place a moneyline bet, you can find the Cardinals listed at -152 on BetMGM Arizona, -140 on DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona, and -146 on FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona.

The over/under totals differ among the three sites, with BetMGM Arizona placing it at 52 points (-110), DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona at 51.5 (-110), and FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona at 52.5 (-110).


Cardinals aiming for complete season sweep against L.A.

The Cardinals cruised to a 37-20 victory over the Rams at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles in their Week 4 showdown.

If Arizona comes out victorious on Monday, it will be the first time they have swept the Rams in a season since 2014. During that season, the Cardinals beat the then-St. Louis Rams with scores of 31-14 and 12-6.

Since then, the Rams have dominated the Cardinals with a 10-3 record, including two wins in 2020.

Kyler Murray’s performance is key for the Cardinals, as he demonstrated potential in his return game against Chicago on Sunday.

Murray returned from a three-game absence with an ankle injury to throw for 123 yards and two touchdowns on 11 of 15 passing in Arizona’s 33-22 road victory against the Bears.

The former Heisman Trophy winner made a significant impact for Kliff Kingsbury’s team by gaining 59 rushing yards and scoring two touchdowns. Murray also threw for 268 yards and two touchdowns in the Cardinals’ Week 4 victory over the Rams.


Cardinals’ Chances of Winning the Super Bowl Increase

Arizona’s Super Bowl betting odds received a boost on Monday, as four sportsbooks raised the Cardinals’ ranking in the league.

BetMGM Arizona’s current odds in Arizona are +750, up from +800 last week, placing them fourth in the NFL rankings.

The Arizona Cardinals’ odds at Caesars Sportsbook Arizona have improved from +1000 to +900 in just two weeks, and now sit at +800 as of Monday. This places them in fourth place in the league rankings.

DraftKings Sportsbook has bumped up the Cardinals’ odds from +900 to +800, moving them up to fifth place in the running to win Super Bowl LVI.

Just one week after being listed at +850, the Cardinals have now moved up to third overall at +750 at FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona.

The Cardinals had odds of +800 at both TwinSpires Sportsbook Arizona and Unibet Arizona, putting them in fourth place for championship Arizona NFL betting odds on both platforms.


The outcome of Monday’s game will determine the winner of the NFC West race.

If the Cardinals defeat the Rams on Monday, they will have a three-game advantage in the NFC West with just four games remaining, practically securing the division championship.

During the 2015 season, the Arizona Cardinals clinched their division with an impressive 13-3 record under the leadership of head coach Bruce Arians. However, their postseason journey came to an end when they were defeated by the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game.

Arizona is currently one game ahead of the Green Bay Packers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the top seed in the NFC playoffs, which would secure them a first-round bye. The Packers have the tiebreaker over the Cardinals because of their 24-21 win in Glendale earlier this season.
