The Arizona Cardinals and Minnesota Vikings will wrap up their preseason play on Saturday in Minneapolis.

Week 3 of the preseason may truly be the toughest to handicap as teams will likely rest their starters and use the final game as the last tryout for the bubble players trying to make the Opening Day roster.

The Vikings have yet to win a preseason game under second year head coach, Kevin O'Connell, so if you want to try to take advantage of their exhibition woes, I'd encourage you to sign up at Caesars Sportsbook! They have an offer where you will receive $250 in bonus bets if you bet $50 on a game.

The best part is it doesn't matter if the bet wins or loses, so even if the Vikings manage to grab their first preseason win under O'Connell, you'll still get the $250 in bonus bets!

Cardinals vs. Vikings prediction and pick

I'll jump on the chance to bet on the Cardinals as underdogs against a Vikings team that can't manage to win a preseason game. Sure, Arizona may be in for a tough regular season, but we can't let their regular season projections effect how we look at them in the preseason.

The Vikings lost both their preseason games by a combined 19 points, not really competing in either matchup. O'Connell clearly uses these games to evaluate his players and his no desire to secure a meaningless victory. As bettors, we can take advantage of that.

Give me the Cardinals on the moneyline on Saturday.
