The Cardinals have been playing very well of late and should get some NFL betting attention in this matchup against the Rams.
Football betting favors Arizona by 9.5 points on the road in this game against St. Louis. The Cardinals have won five of their last six overall and on the road they have excelled, going 4-0 against the football betting pointspread. The Cardinals will look to contain St. Louis running back Steven Jackson who is really the only threat the Rams have. History has shown that the Cardinals usually do well against Jackson. In the last eight football betting games against the Cardinals, Jackson has averaged only 55.3 yards rushing per game. Getting linebacker Gerald Hayes healthy would help the Cardinals’ NFL betting chances as he has missed the last two games with Ali Highsmith filling in. “He’s a physical presence,” head coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “He certainly brings a toughness to our defense. That’s not to downgrade Ali … but whenever you put players in there that don’t have the experience Gerald has, there is generally going to be a little bit of a drop-off.”
The Rams are likely to have difficult in this NFL betting matchup containing Kurt Warner and the Arizona offense. Warner has been excellent of late and Arizona looks capable of winning the NFC again this football betting season. The Cardinals are now 5-0 in in their last 5 road games. They have played very well within their football betting division as they are 5-1 in their last 6 vs. the NFC West. They are pretty good laying points too as they are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games as a football betting favorite. The Cardinals are 4-1 in NFL betting in their last 5 meetings in St. Louis.
St. Louis does not have many positive football betting trends. The Rams are 7-18 ATS in their last 25 home games. They are 7-19 in football betting in their last 26 vs. the NFC West and they are 4-12 ATS in their last 16 games as a home underdog.
When Arizona is on the road they go over the football betting total most of the time. 40 of their last 58 road games have gone over in. The last four St. Louis games have all gone over. Five of the last seven in this football betting series at St. Louis have gone over.
