Week 16 NFL Spread: Cardinals vs. Pats

NFL Arizona @ New England Take The Over

The Arizona Cardinals travel to New England to take on the Patriots in a game that means nothing to the Cardinals and everything to New England. For sports betting fans, whether the Cardinals win or lose is a big deal in this game but to the Cardinals it probably doesn’t mean all that much. Arizona has already won the NFC West division. There’s no way for this team not to make the playoffs. There’s also no way for this team to catch either the New York Giants or the Carolina Panthers for home field advantage. So, the Cardinals don’t have a whole lot to play for. Against the BetUS online betting spread, Arizona has been an up and down team. They’ve gone 8 and 6 against the spread which mirrors their record straight-up.

The New England Patriots have to win this game. They can’t afford to lose with both the New York Jets and Miami Dolphins tied with them atop the AFC East standings. The Patriots showed last week why they are still one of the most dangerous teams in the NFL when they racked up 35 points before half-time against the Oakland Raiders. The Pats have the goods to do some damage in the playoffs, rewarding NFL betting fans that didn’t jump ship when Tom Brady went down, but they have to get there first. Against the BetUS online wagering spread the Patriots have a record of 7 and 7.

Here are the BetUS online betting odds for this game.

Arizona Cardinals + 7 ½ – 110 + 265 O 45 ½ – 110
New England Patriots – 7 ½ – 110 – 325 U 45 ½ – 110

Here are a few online wagering trends that might help us find a good online bet in this game.

The Arizona Cardinals are 1 and 5 against the spread in their last 6 games on the road.
The Over is 14 and 3 in the Arizona Cardinals last 17 games against an opponent with a winning record.
The New England Patriots are 2 and 10 against the spread in their last 12 games at home.
The Under is 8-3-2 in the New England Patriots last 13 games at home.

With the Cardinals not really playing for anything, doesn’t this set up as a game that New England could possibly win easily? It sort of does. But the Cardinals still have to start Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin, Tim Hightower and Kurt Warner.

To me that means that the Cardinals put up points. They’re going to have trouble keeping Randy Moss and the New England Patriots out of the end zone but Arizona should have enough fire-power to secure three touchdowns in this game. So, they end up losing 35 to 21 but online sportsbook football betting fans are happy because these two teams squash the BetUS total.

Cardinals vs. Patriots Prediction:

I will make an online wager on the game between the Arizona Cardinals and the New England Patriots to go over the BetUS total of 45 ½ points.
