Online NFL betting numbers have the Cardinals with the top ranked offense in the NFL in points scored but they will be challenged by a Minnesota defense that is 8th in the league in yards allowed. Arizona is the pro football betting favorite in this game.
Online NFL betting history puts Minnesota as the dominant team in this series against the Cardinals winning 8 of the last 10 matchups. The Vikings are also 7-3 against the online NFL betting pointspread. The teams have not played that often recently, providing only three opportunities for online NFL betting on them this decade. Pro football betting stats show that Minnesota won at home in 2006 by a score of 31-26 in their last meeting.
This is a much more important game for the Vikings since they are trying to stay ahead of the Bears in the NFC North. Arizona has already clinched the NFC West as online NFL betting information demonstrates, so their focus might not be as intense. The Cardinals do have the home field edge in online NFL betting odds, and the better offense, so it may not matter that Minnesota has more motivation. Kurt Warner is having an MVP type season according to online NFL betting experts and could exploit a Minnesota secondary that is 20th in the NFL as online NFL betting numbers show. Arizona has been able to score points on a regular basis and should be able to score in this game.
The Vikings will have to rely heavily upon Adrian Peterson in this pro football betting matchup. Quarterback Gus Frerotte has injured last week and his status for this week is up in the air according to online NFL betting information. Minnesota’s online NFL betting fans should be able to watch their team move the ball though against an Arizona defense that is 23rd in the league.
