The Cardinals have lost seven in a row at home against the Rams, last beating them 31-14 on Nov. 9, 2014, when the Rams were in St. Louis.

The Cardinals are 5-5 ATS and 3-6-1 SU as home underdogs under coach Kliff Kingsbury since 2019, with the over hitting seven times.

The Cardinals are 19-9-1 ATS and 15-13-1 SU as underdogs under Kingsbury, with the O/U going 14-14-1. 

Pick by FOX Sports Betting Analyst Geoff Schwartz:

Two underwhelming teams facing off within the desert.  

The Rams are 1-1, but needed to fight off a feisty Falcons team that was down 31-10 early within the fourth yet were driving to take the lead in the ultimate two minutes before losing 31-25.   

Arizona got smoked by the Chiefs in Week 1 and needed a historic extra time comeback to beat the Raiders after heading into halftime down 20-0.  

After two weeks, the Cardinals and Rams are ranked twenty eighth and twenty ninth, respectively, in team efficiency, with the Cardinals being weighed down with a thirtieth ranked defense and the Rams having the thirty second ranked special teams.  

When two teams look like equal on paper, I grab the points, especially after I get the three plus the hook. There’s some worry with this wager because Sean McVay’s Rams have dominated the Cardinals, going 10-1 straight up.   

Nevertheless, this number for the Cardinals is simply too juicy to not wager on.  

Pick: Arizona (+3.5 at FOX Bet) to lose by fewer than 3.5 points (or win outright)
