Cardinals vs. Rams Week 9 Spread

NFL Week 9 Picks – Arizona Cardinals vs. St. Louis Rams

The Arizona Cardinals travel to St. Louis to take on a Rams squad that has shown marked improvement the past three weeks. Not only did the Rams upset arguably two of the best teams in the NFC, the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys, but they played the New England Patriots tough on the road. This Rams team is suddenly turning into a verifiable against the spread juggernaut for BetUS online sportsbook NFL betting fans.

They have beaten the spread in three straight games. The Rams won straight-up against the Washington Redskins three weeks ago, and then they repeated that effort versus the Dallas Cowboys a week later. Just last Sunday, they beat the BetUS online sports betting spread by ½ a point by losing to the New England Patriots by only a touchdown. Can the Rams keep this going? Maybe.

The Arizona Cardinals sport one of the best offenses in the NFL. They have two solid wide receivers in Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin. They also have a very good quarterback in Kurt Warner. Running backs Tim Hightower and Edgerrin James fill out the awesome offense. Without a doubt this team is solid. Their defense is actually better than a lot of online betting fans believe. The biggest issue with the Cardinals is that they don’t know how to win.

Here are the BetUS online sportsbook betting odds for this game.

Kick-off: 11/02/2008 1:00 pm est.

Arizona Cardinals – 3 – 110 – 150 O 48 ½ – 110
St. Louis Rams + 3 – 110 + 130 U 48 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 4 and 1 against the spread in their last 5 games versus a team from the NFC Conference.
The Over is 5 and 1 in the last 6 meetings between these two teams in St. Louis.
The St. Louis Rams are 1 and 4 against the spread in their last 5 games versus a team from the NFC West Division.
The Underdog is 8 and 1 against the spread in the last 9 meetings between these two teams.

The trends say that the Cardinals win this game and cover against the spread, but I have to believe that the St. Louis Rams really are improved. They beat the Redskins and Cowboys and they almost beat the Patriots on the road.

Arizona’s inability to seal the deal will work against them in this game. The St. Louis Rams have the type of defense that could put pressure on Kurt Warner. Warner will make mistakes with defenders in his face.

NFL Week 9 Prediction:

I have to take a stab on the money line in this game. I believe that the St. Louis Rams have the ability to beat the Cardinals straight-up. At the online betting odds of + 130, I like the Rams to win this game.
