Bet on football action for the Super Bowl runner-up Arizona Cardinals begins on Sunday as they host the San Francisco 49ers.
The Cardinals won the NFC West last season in NFL football betting and they dominated the teams in their division, winning all six games.
Bet on football odds have the Cardinals as 6.5 point favorites with a total of 46. The Cardinals finished the regular season a year ago at 9-7 with six of those wins coming against the NFC West. The team won their playoff games to make the Super Bowl but lost to Pittsburgh 27-23. The Cardinals didn’t play well in the preseason going 0-4 but no one seems concerned.
"Preseason is kind of a mirage of what’s going to happen during the regular season," safety Adrian Wilson said. "We probably had 20 percent of the stuff we’re going to run in the regular season up."
The Cardinals have a powerful offense led by quarterback Kurt Warner and wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. Warner finished second in the league with 4,583 passing yards and third with 30 touchdowns a year ago. The Cardinals beat the 49ers twice last year as bet on football results show but it was the defense that won the game in November. The Cardinals stopped the 49ers with a goal line stand late in the fourth quarter. The Cardinals have won six of the last eight bet on football matchups against San Francisco.
