Why Arizona Cardinals are a good bet +13 ½?
Murray started out poorly in the Cards 27-27 tie with the Detroit Lions in Week 1. Murray threw 2 picks. Amazingly, the rookie picked himself up, ran Kliff Kingsbury’s offense, and the Cardinals scored enough for the tie.
The bad start and subsequent recovery should aid Murray in this Week 2 battle. That could be enough for Arizona to keep this one closer than the spread.

Why Baltimore Ravens are a good bet -13 ½?
Baltimore looked like the best team in the NFL when beating the Miami Dolphins 59-10. Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was sensational when throwing 5 TD passes. The Ravens defense dominated the Fins.
Baltimore’s defense could lead the way here. Ravens coach John Harbaugh will draw something special up for Kyler Murray. Harbaugh’s probably at his desk right now thinking of the best way to dominate AZ’s offense. Baltimore can blow out the Arizona Cardinals.

Cardinals vs Ravens Final NFL Betting Analysis
Harbaugh said that Lamar Jackson would be a better passer this season than last season. But, that was ridiculous. Jackson threw for 324 yards and 5 TD passes. He completed 85% of his throws. It was one of the most impressive performances in NFL history from any quarterback.
Again, the Ravens played the Miami Dolphins, but it’s not like Baltimore can only pass the ball on offense. The Ravens also rushed for 265 yards. Plus, Baltimore gets the Cardinals at home. Ravens roll again.
