3 Reasons the Cardinals Will Upset the Raiders in Week 2

3 Reasons the Cardinals Will Upset the Raiders
Arizona is an Incredible Road Underdog
The Cardinals have six straight wins as road underdogs, including impressive victories over the Cowboys, 49ers, Rams, and Titans. In those six wins, Arizona covered the spread by an average of 19.83 points per game!
Dating back to 2018, the Cardinals are 14-3-2 against the spread (ATS) in their last 19 games as road ‘dogs.
Meanwhile, Las Vegas is just 1-9 ATS in its previous 10 matchups as a favorite and lost three of its last five outright. Without question, the trends favor Arizona.
It seems the world forgot how good Kyler Murray is.
The Chiefs are going to make a lot of teams look bad this year, and Murray still showed flashes of the sensational quarterback we saw his first few years in the league.
Just last season, Murray had over 4,000 total yards and 29 touchdowns to just five interceptions. In 2020, Murray had nearly 5,000 total yards and found the end zone 37 times. The guy is a baller and he’ll prove it Sunday.
Early-Season Kliff Kingsbury
Much has been made about Kliff Kingsbury’s team’s struggles at the end of seasons, but he’s always found success early.
Week 1 was only the second September loss the Cardinals suffered since 2020, and Kingsbury’s innovative schemes take time for opposing defenses to figure out. Arizona scored at least 31 points in three straight September games before last week, and I think the Cardinals get back on track against Vegas.
