That was the game in which Carolina quarterback Jake Delhomme imploded, throwing five interceptions and losing a fumble.
He may not even get the start in this NFL betting matchup since he has not played well for the Panthers this season.
Football betting has Arizona as a 10-point favorite with a total of 41. The Cardinals are beginning to look like last year’s NFC Champions while the Panthers are looking like they need a new head coach and a new quarterback. Head coach John Fox had not decided early in the week whether or not Delhomme would get the start in this football betting game. If Delhomme doesn’t get the start then the Panthers would be going with either Matt Moore or A.J. Feeley in this football betting contest.
Carolina is going to have a tough time in football betting against Arizona regardless of who starts at quarterback. The Cardinals are coming off a huge NFL betting win over the New York Giants on the road. Arizona has now won three straight road games in football betting for the first time since 1987. Quarterback Kurt Warner and the Arizona offense could have a field day against a weak Carolina defense in this game and the Arizona defense should be able to contain an erratic Carolina offense.
Most of the football betting numbers support the Cardinals in Sunday’s game. The Panthers are 1-6 in NFL betting in their last 7 games as a road underdog. The Cardinals are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 vs. the NFC. Arizona is a very good favorite as well lately. The Cardinals are 10-4 in NFL betting in their last 14 games as a favorite. They have been solid at home in football betting going 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games. The only positive for Carolina in football betting trends is that the underdog in this series is 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
Football betting trends show that six of the last seven Carolina road games have gone over the total. 10 of the last 13 Carolina games vs. the NFC have gone over. The last four Arizona games have all gone under the total. At home though, Arizona has gone over the football betting total in 12 of their last 16 games.
