3 Best Bets for the Arizona Cardinals vs. Chargers – Week 12
The Arizona Cardinals will look to play more than just spoiler in December with a win in Week 12. So let’s look at three awesome bets for the game.
The Arizona Cardinals are on the cusp of mathematical playoff elimination. But that doesn’t mean they still don’t have solid single-game betting options. Below, I will discuss three of what might be the best bets for Week 12, starting with one of my favorite bets all season, the over/under.
1 – Arizona Cardinals and Chargers OVER 48.5
While both offenses have struggled, the Cardinals may actually have an advantage here. Kyler Murray will be back after two weeks of watching the game on the sidelines, and that could bode well for having seen the game from another angle.
Murray will also have his favorite target in Marquise Brown back, plus DeAndre Hopkins, This could allow the Cardinals offense to come to life with Murray behind center.
2 – Marquise Brown Scores (+260)
Sure, Brown will see some action for the first time since Week 6, but he can also pick up where he left off with Kyler Murray. Before his injury, Brown was playing lights out on a stagnant Arizona Cardinals offense, logging 43 catches, 485 yards, and three touchdowns.
With Hopkins drawing attention away, look for Murray to target Brown often this week. Even when the Cardinals sneak into the red zone.
3 – First Drive Results in a PUNT (-105)
The Cardinals offense is still prone to getting off to slow starts and the Chargers offense also hasn’t exactly played textbook football. This one is more of a probability pick, and the highest odds here are that the first drive will end in a punt.
The next-highest odds? That the first drive ends in a touchdown (+290). If you are looking for a safe bet, bet on the punt.
Last Week’s Results…
Last week, I finished 1-2, dropping in last week’s best bets against San Francisco. While I hit on the over/under, I missed on Christian McCaffrey’s scoring prop, despite his outstanding game. I also missed on the risky bet that the Arizona Cardinals would win the first half.
Now, I’m an unfortunate 15-17 on the season, putting me in the red for best bets for the first time in a while. A 3-0 record will put me back in the green, so I went with safer bets this week.
