The Arizona Cardinals might finish last in the NFC West this season. It’s no secret that they’re playing in the hardest division in the conference.
The San Francisco 49ers struggled last season due to injuries, but with Trey Lance waiting on the sideline, things could get interesting quickly. Plus, the Los Angeles Rams will have Matthew Stafford under center, and the Seahawks are always in contention behind Russell Wilson.
The Cardinals are also going to be a young team with plenty of potential holes that won’t be fixed right away. They’ve added James Conner as their second running back, and A.J. Green will be their starting wide out next to DeAndre Hopkins. Both Green and Conner failed to prove anything last season and will hope that new scenery is the answer to their lack of production.
This team will also have to play five playoff teams in their last seven games, and we’ve already seen this Cardinals team fold in the second half of the season in each of the last two years.
Cardinals Prop Bets 2021: Player Bet Picks
A.J. Green Regular Season Receiving Yards: Over 545.5 (-110)
It’s been an odd last couple of seasons for A.J. Green. He was once a stud receiver, and now many think he’s washed up at the age of 33. In his last two seasons, he couldn’t reach 700 yards and at times it looked like Green quit on the Bengals when he wasn’t getting targets.
In 2017, he still caught 75 passes for 1,078 yards, but that was four years ago. Green didn’t play in 2019 and hasn’t been the same the last three seasons. But now he gets a change of scenery. He’s moving on to Arizona to play alongside DeAndre Hopkins. who might be double-teamed quite a bit this season.
If Green commits to the season and plays to the level that he did during his prime, 600 or more yards seems very likely. It’s already been reported that he looks great in training camp. It seems like he has bought in and is willing to give it 100 percent, something he didn’t do in his final years with the Bengals.
Kyler Murray Over 680.5 Rushing Yards (-120)
The Cardinals were 9-2 when Kyler Murray ran eight times or more last season. I can’t be the only one to look at these stats and realize this. The Cardinals management team and front office must know this too. When Murray runs effectively, the Cardinals win games.
The Cardinals should be running the ball with Murray as much as they can. Murray averaged 6.2 yards per carry and ran 133 times for 819 yards. Now we’re adding another game this season and the over/under is sitting at 680.5?
Murray has played 16 games in each of his first two seasons and has done a solid job avoiding injury by running out of bounds and sliding. The Cardinals still lack depth at receiver and if Hopkins is double teamed, Green will get looks along with Christian Kirk, but still, it’s more likely the receivers run down the field to then block for Murray when he scrambles away from pressure because those receivers couldn’t get open.
Murray is going to be a big passing threat for this Cardinals team, but it starts with the run game for him.
