Why bet on New England versus Arizona?

Why bet on Arizona versus New England?
For the first time in a while, Arizona’s top offensive players should step onto the field at the same time. Quarterback Kyler Murray and James Connor didn’t show up on the injury report.
DeAndre Hopkins did but he’s listed as probable. So is wide receiver Greg Dortch, who has had a decent season with 34 catches and a pair of touchdowns.
In addition, the Zona D should be okay because JJ Watt is healthy. Watt has 6.5 sacks this season even though he was hurt in the early weeks.

New England Patriots at Arizona Cardinals Final Betting Prediction
New England’s defense will have a much easier time versus the Cardinals than it did against the Bills and Vikings. Not only that, but the Patriots’ offense will take advantage of a Cardinals’ defense that allows a robust 245.4 passing yards per game.
Ah, but here’s the issue. A quick check in the morning reveals that the Patriots could be without both starting tackles. If that were to happen, Arizona’s could get it going on this.
Not only that, but the Cards have a decided advantage at the QB position because Kyler Murray has his top target available in DeAndre Hopkins. Based on stats and trends, the Patriots roll.
But based on the way the Patriots’ D has played as well as issues along New England’s offense line, and the fact JJ Watt is quietly having a decent season after missing so much time, we’re changing our early week minds. The Arizona Cardinals are the play to win and cover on Monday night.
