Why bet on Arizona versus Carolina?

The Cardinals have been up and down so far, but outside of their first game, where Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs jumped all over the Cards, AZ has played competitive ball. Mental mistakes cost them versus the rival Rams but if Zona goes back to their week 2 performance, they should win this game.

Why bet on Carolina versus Arizona?

Often an NFL team requires one good victory to turn things around. The Panthers one good win may have happened in NFL Week 3 when they dusted the rival New Orleans Saints. Carolina not only hung 22 onto a Saints’ defense that many believed was one of the best in the league, but the Panthers held New Orleans to 14 points. If Carolina repeats their last effort on Sunday, the Panthers will win and cover.

Arizona Cardinals at Carolina Panthers Final Betting Prediction

It’s tough to back either one of these teams, but 2 powerful trends push us towards going with Kyler and the Cardinals. First, Arizona is 7-1 against the spread in their last 8 in October.

The trend implies Zona coaches make key adjustments after games in September. The second trend is the Panthers going 1-6 ATS in their last 7 versus the NFC. 

This trend tells us Carolina beat the Saints last week but the win was an anomaly. Looking further in the Panthers’ past performances, Carolina beat New Orleans early at home last season as well.

The Panthers might be one of those teams that performs great against a single opponent, the Saints, but fails versus everyone else. Arizona has more talent and played well against the Rams in their last. Murray and his mates get the ATS nod.   

NFL Week 4 Pick: Arizona Cardinals +1.5
