Online Sportsbook: Cardinals vs. Chiefs

The redbirds from the desert fly into Missouri on Friday for a NFL preseason contest featuring the Arizona Cardinals and Kansas City Chiefs. Gametime is 8:00ET in Arrowhead Stadium.

This will be the Cardinals' second preseason affair, after falling to the New Orleans Saints last week 17-10 in the Hall of fame game. Check the Sportsbook Odds for the 2012 NFL Season.

Arizona was a tale of two seasons last year while posting an overall mark of 8-8 and finishing second in the AFC West. They struggled in the first 7 contests going 1-6. Then, they posted a 7-2 record in the last 9 games, playing outstanding defense and scoring at the most opportune moments. They came back in six of their eight wins in the final quarter and had four overtime victories, all at home.

John Skelton should start this game after being the hero in six of the eight wins before he gives way to Kevin Kolb who must prove he is worth the considerable investment made in him by the Cardinals prior to last season.

Kolb missed 8 games last year with a concussion and foot injury. He also failed to make a good first impression in the HOF game last week when his initial pass attempt was intercepted. He was 1-4 before leaving the game early due to a bruised rib. Start your Sportsbook Betting action on the Kansas City Chiefs at SBG Global.

Kansas City was 7-9 last year, finishing fourth in the AFC West. Head Coach Romeo Crenell also has a dilemma at quarterback, but it pertains to the backup role behind established starter Matt Cassel.

Cassel should start the game on Friday and it will be his first game back since breaking his hand nine games into the 2011 season. Then look for veteran, Brady Quinn to run the club for two quarters before Ricky Stanzi, a 5th round pick in the 2011 draft, finishes things off.

All the KC QB's will be without top receiver Dwayne Bowes who is holding out. Kansas City is a 2.5 point home favorite if you're willing to wager $110 to win $100. The over/under is 34.5 total points at -$110 as well.
