Oddsmakers predict that the Cardinals will be one of the last remaining winless teams in the NFL.

Oddsmakers Expect Cardinals to be One of NFL’s Final Winless Teams
Fact Checked by Young Ruth

The Arizona Cardinals fans were already anticipating a disappointing season for their team in the NFL, and Circa Sports has now introduced a betting proposition that highlights the low expectations for the Cards even more.

Circa Sports, famous for its vibrant retail sportsbook in Las Vegas and expanding online betting platform, has released two sets of odds for opening streaks. Additionally, Caesars Sportsbook Arizona is now providing opening streak odds for online sports betting within the state.

The Cardinals are not favored to stay undefeated the longest among all teams.

Alternatively, there are also betting odds available for predicting which team will be the last to win a game in the 2023 season.

The Cardinals are the top contenders for that dubious distinction.

Arizona leads the dubious list

Circa Sports has reported that the Arizona Cardinals are favored to be the first team to win a game, with odds at +460. Betting apps in Arizona also predict the Cardinals to be the last team without a victory, with odds at +420.

It is evident to all Cardinals fans why the team is facing difficulties. Star quarterback Kyler Murray is in the process of recovering from surgery on his right knee’s ACL, which was injured late last season in Week 14. The earliest possible timeframe for his return is around mid-season. Despite having Murray, Arizona has encountered team challenges.

Tampa Bay, missing Tom Brady, is in second place in Circa’s prop bet for the last team to win a game, with odds of +775. Houston and the Los Angeles Rams are tied closely behind at +1100, followed by Tennessee at +1300, Indianapolis and Carolina at +1400, and Las Vegas at +1500.

Chiefs and Eagles Lead the Way in Win Streaks

The Philadelphia Eagles are currently the frontrunners with odds of +650 in the season-opening streak prop bet, forecasting which team will remain undefeated the longest. The defending Super Bowl champions, the Kansas City Chiefs, and the Cincinnati Bengals are close behind with odds of +775.

Arizona sports betting sites have Kansas City as the favorite to win the Super Bowl with odds of +600, while Philadelphia is listed as second with odds of +750.

When comparing the two betting propositions of the last NFL team to lose and the last team to win, the prop concerning losing may be less influenced by unforeseen circumstances such as injuries or suspensions.

Losing their starting quarterback to injury would definitely compromise the Eagles’ or Chiefs’ chances of continuing their winning streak.

However, the injuries to the Cardinals, although unfortunate, are unlikely to diminish Arizona’s chances of remaining without a win.

Finally, when discussing the chances of an early-season winning streak, specific guidelines were given for tiebreakers. Per Circa’s rules, if more than one team stays unbeaten, the team that progresses further in the playoffs will win. If several teams secure their first win on the same day, the team that wins later in the day will be considered the last winless team.

Both an undefeated or winless regular season for a team on BetMGM Sportsbook Arizona are listed at +1000 odds.
