Cardinals Favored By 10.5 Points Vs. Depleted Panthers Teams

  • The Arizona Cardinals have -105 odds to cover 10.5 points against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
  • The total for the game is set at a low 44.0 points with a -110 betting line on both sides.

GLENDALE, Ariz. – The Arizona Cardinals are one of the biggest favorites of the week, but there’s reason to believe they should be favored by even more against the Carolina Panthers.

Should The Cardinals Be Favored By More Than 10.5 Points?

It’s not very often that a team is favored by double-digits on online sportsbooks and the question arises as to if the number is too small, but that could very well be the case.

Cardinals vs Panthers Spread Odds

  • Arizona Cardinals -10.5 -105
  • Carolina Panthers +10.5 -115

Kyler Murray returned to practice on Friday, showing there’s an increasingly large chance that he’ll play on Sunday. The Panthers will be starting P.J. Walker under center despite the recent addition of Cam Newton to the roster.

Walker got extended usage once this year and went 3-for-14 passing and tallied just 33 yards, scoring no points with him taking snaps. He’ll now be facing the Arizona defense that’s fourth in the NFL in fewest yards allowed (321.0 ypg) and third in fewest points allowed (17.2 ppg).

If the Cardinals’ offense is getting back to full strength while the Panthers’ is set for a new low, the result could be much more lopsided than the spread suggests.

Betting The Total: 44.0 Points

Having a low total for this game makes sense. The aforementioned Cardinals defense is one of the best units in the league and Carolina’s isn’t too far behind. The Panthers allow the second-fewest yards per game (293.1) and the seventh-fewest points per game (20.3).

Panthers vs Cardinals Total Odds

  • OVER 44.0 -110
  • UNDER 44.0 -110

However, seven of the nine Cardinals games this season have had a total north of the set number.

The same cannot be said for Carolina who has seen just two of their nine games go OVER this total. Those betting on the NFL will likely see Arizona get their fair share of points and it may ultimately come down to whether the Panthers can put a couple of scores on the board.

The game can be seen on FOX starting at 4:05 p.m. EST on Sunday.
