NFL Free Pick Analysis – Arizona Cardinals vs. Philadelphia Eagles
The Thanksgiving Day night game pits the Arizona Cardinals, coming off of a loss against the New York Giants, against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles are in shambles. They were absolutely dominated this past Sunday in Baltimore. It was so bad that Coach Andy Reid benched Donovan McNabb.
To me, that was a stupid move because what is the back-up going to do against that Baltimore defense? Nothing. The Eagles have to win this game. They still have a shot at a playoff berth but they have to win this game in order to keep pace with some of the other .500 teams in the NFL. The Eagles are 5-5-1 straight-up and 6 and 5 against the BetUS Sportsbook online wagering spread.
The Arizona Cardinals sure looked good going into their game versus the New York Giants last Sunday. It was a good game but New York is just too good for a team like the Cardinals. Still, Arizona showed that they are the obvious champion of the AFC West Division.
The Cardinals have two of the best wide receivers in the league in Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin. Kurt Warner is a serious contender for MVP of the league this season.

The Philadelphia Eagles are 3 and 2 against the spread at home this season.
The Over is 1 and 4 in the Philadelphia Eagles last 5 games at home.
The Arizona Cardinals are 4 and 2 against the spread in their last 6 road games.
The Over is 2 and 4 in the Arizona Cardinals last 6 games on the road.
The Eagles are a mess. They can’t get anything right. They tied the Cincinnati Bengals two Sundays ago and then got wholloped by the Baltimore Ravens this past Sunday.
What’s going on with this talented team? They have lost their focus. That’s not a good thing because the Arizona Cardinals are no slouch.
In fact the Cardinals have one of the best offenses in the NFL. They can also play some defense and Coach Ken Wisenhunt knows how to get his players ready.
I’m going to take a stab on the money line in this game and go with the Cardinals to beat the Eagles straight-up at + 115. To me that’s the best online bet to make. The Arizona Cardinals are a better team than the Philadelphia Eagles right now. I’ll try to take advantage of that by making an online wager on them to win straight-up.
