The Arizona Cardinals and Denver Broncos seasons are all but over, but that doesn’t mean there’s no reason to watch their Week 15 meeting this Sunday.
This is where sports betting comes into play. If playoffs aren’t on the line, why not place a few dollars on the game?
So, with Kyler Murray out after a brutal non-contact injury on Monday night, and Russell Wilson questionable after a Week 14 concussion, how do we wager on this interconference matchup?
Let’s take a look at the odds and then I’ll give you my thoughts.

Cardinals vs. Broncos Prediction and Pick
I implore you to trust Colt McCoy. Sure, he’s no Kyler Murray, but I trust him in this matchup.
So far this season, in relief of Murray, McCoy has completed 69.4 percent of passes for a rating of 81.7. Those aren’t eye-popping numbers, but I think they’re good enough to lead the Cardinals past the Broncos.
Especially considering Arizona may be facing Brett Rypien if Russell Wilson is ruled out. Rypien has completed only 57.3 percent of his passes in his career, throwing for three touchdowns and six interceptions. If Wilson can’t go, the terrible Denver offense is going to be even worse.
If that’s the case, Arizona may only need to score twice to get past Denver.
So, let me be the first to tell you, if you’re going to bet on this game on Sunday, let’s trust McCoy to do enough to get the job done.
