Why the Arizona Cardinals are a good bet +7?

The Cardinals are on a mini-winning streak. In Week 15, Arizona beat the Cleveland Browns 38-24 as a 3-point dog. Last Sunday, the Cards upset the Seattle Seahawks 27-13 as an 8-point underdog. The victory over Seattle impressed. Arizona traveled to the Emerald City. The Seahawks are in a fight for the NFC West and the top-seed in the NFC Playoffs. They were motivated to beat Zona. But the Cardinals won. AZ can carry over the momentum from the past couple of weeks into Week 17.

Why the L.A. Rams are a good bet -7?

The Rams won’t salvage the season. They can end it on a positive note, though. Los Angeles played too well to lose in Week 16. They had a lead over the San Francisco 49ers. San Francisco came back to beat the Rams 34-31. That knocked LAR out of the playoffs. The Rams can end the season with an impressive win.

Cardinals vs Rams Final NFL Betting Analysis

The Cardinals let the first head-to-head between these two get out of hand. Arizona’s defense had no answer for Jared Goff. The Rams’ quarterback threw for 424 yards and 2 TDs. He dominated Arizona’s defense.

We shouldn’t expect a repeat performance from Goff. NFL coaches are great at switching things up from game-to-game. The Cardinals’ defense will play Goff differently on Dec. 29. Arizona has gotten into a rhythm the last couple of games on offense. The Cardinals should keep that going. Kenyan Drake will have success rushing the football while Kyler Murray mustn’t worry about Jalen Ramsey because the All-Pro corner will skip this matchup.

Take the points on the Cardinals. Also, consider the moneyline. AZ has a real shot to win this straight up. No way the Rams bring the same energy Arizona will to a meaningless game. Cardinals cover.
