The Arizona Cardinals have had it rough so far this season, but there are still some good prop bets to consider. Here are the three best.
The Arizona Cardinals offense has sunk to a point where prop bets often favor the Under. And this week against the Los Angeles Chargers, the Under is exactly what I have in store for the Red Birds.
If you are looking for the three best prop bets for the week, consider the following three. And be warned, it does not look good for the Cardinals.
1 – Kyler Murray UNDER 242.5 passing yards
Murray has trended under the 242 mark in five out of nine starts this season. And while he will have DeAndre Hopkins and Marquise Brown on the field at the same time for the first time all season, the trio will need to mesh before anything else.
Stagnant as the Cardinals offense has been, Murray probably doesn’t reach this mark today. Further, the Chargers passing defense has only allowed 220.6 passing yards per game to this point.
2 – Justin Herbert OVER 279.5 passing yards
The Arizona Cardinals have only given up 245 passing yards per game. However, their defense also let Jimmy Garoppolo throw all over them. Further, Herbert has hit the 279-mark in six of his 10 starts this season. Right now, it’s best to go with the hot hand over the cooling defense. Herbert should have a big game in the props category.
3 – James Conner UNDER 66.5 rushing yards
While the Chargers have one of the worst rushing defenses in football, the Cardinals figure to be trailing, and therefore, throwing often in this one. Look for Conner to start the game by gaining a few good chunks of yardage on the ground, but once the Cardinals are down by a score or two, it will force Kyler Murray into more throwing situations.
Last week’s results…
In last week’s prop bets against the 49ers, I finished a solid 2-1, taking it on Jimmy Garoppolo’s Under and Colt McCoy’s Over. However, I missed on the one I thought was the most surefire: Christian McCaffrey’s rushing yard total.
This brings me to 15-18 on the season in prop bets, putting me at 30-36 on the season. That said, I got some ground to make up. Maybe this week will be a bit better?
