The Arizona Cardinals are among the oldest of NFL franchises and are also among its most polarizing. Fans loyal to the Big Red brand are partial to the club's gorgeous uniforms, its history of colorful and unique athletes, and recent success in the NFL playoffs.
The Arizona Cardinals have been extremely relevant to FanDuel's Daily Fantasy NFL competitors over the past 2 seasons thanks to the presence of electric dual-threat quarterback Kyler Murray. However, due to mediocre defense and Murray's youthful mistakes, the Cardinals haven't yet posted a winning season or reached the NFC playoffs under 3rd-year head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
Arizona Cardinals betting is more focused on NFC West odds as usual, though the expected revival of a previously badly-injured San Francisco 49ers team has the Big Red's 2020-21 division odds at a fat 6-to-1.
There's no mistaking that the Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks are more popular preseason bets, or that Kingsbury has a way to go before sharks who dive into FanDuel's prop bets trust the Arizona head coach as much as Sean McVay or Pete Carroll.
Win totals lines have certainly been more pessimistic about forecasted last-place teams, though. The Cardinals are listed at O/U (8) wins at FanDuel Sportsbook. It says a lot about the potential strength of the NFC West in 2021 that a team expected to stay around .500 in the regular season is also handicapped with futures division odds of 6-to-1.
