Football betting has the Arizona Cardinals favored at home in Week 2 NFL betting odds against the Miami Dolphins.
It will be a battle of veteran quarterbacks as Kurt Warner leads Arizona while Chad Pennington is the main man in Miami. Here is a look at this NFL betting matchup.
Football betting experts believe the Dolphins will be vastly improved this season. Last year Miami was terrible all across the board but they have made numerous improvements including getting Pennington from the Jets. Pennington will look to combine with wide receiver Ted Ginn on some big plays against a suspect Arizona secondary. Ricky Williams gives Miami some balance as he could easily have a solid day on the ground against Arizona. The key in this game according to football betting experts could be Pennington getting time to throw. The Cardinals were a pathetic 28th in the NFL last year against the pass according to NFL betting stats.
Arizona has a nice offense led by Warner and his tandem of receivers in Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin. Football betting experts believe that the Cardinals do need to get more out of a running game that looks old with Edgerrin James. This is a key game for Arizona. If they want to prove they are a worthy challenger to Seattle in the NFC West, this is a game they can’t afford to lose according to football betting experts.
Miami and Arizona have met only three times since 1990 according to football betting stats. Miami has won two of those three meetings, with the last one in 2004 according to football betting stats. Arizona won that meeting at Miami by a score of 24-23 according to football betting numbers. The Cardinals are 6-6 in their last 12 games as a home favorite according to NFL betting numbers. Miami is 9-11-2 in their last 22 games as a road underdog according to football betting stats. 14 of the last 24 Arizona home games have gone over the total according to football betting stats. Miami is 14-10 to the under in their last 24 road games according to football betting numbers.
