49ers vs Cardinals NFL Week 8 Monday Night Football Betting
Arizona Cardinals: Victory sets up tie in NFC West Division
After a lightning fast start, that saw Arizona jump out to a 4-0 record to open the 2012 NFL season, the Cards have dropped three straight contests. Scoring has been a big problem during the recent slide as Arizona has averaged just 11 points per game over their last three contests – after they averaged 22 PPG over the first four weeks. Despite their recent slump, the Cardinals (4-3) are still just one game back of the 49ers.
San Francisco 49ers: Back on track after crushing home loss to NY Giants
A week after they were blown out of their home park, 26-3 by the New York Giants, 49ers (5-2) rebounded with a hard fought 13-6 win over NFC West rival Seattle last weekend. Now they head out on the road for the first time in three weeks to face another division foe in the Cardinals. One of the Niners three loses in 2011 came at this venue as the Cards held San Francisco to just 233 yards in a 21-19 win.
Cardinals vs. 49ers Online Sports Betting NFL Monday Night Football Prediction
Checking in at the topbet.ag online sports betting website we find the Niners has huge road chalk at -7 on the spread and -300 on the money line. The Cardinals get seven points and they are posted as +250 straight up home pups. The Over/Under wagering line is set at a miniscule 39 total points. Prior to a Week 5 loss to Buffalo, the Cards had won eight straight games at what is always a raucus University of Phoenix Stadium.
San Francisco have been road warriors recently with an 8-3 record away from the Bay Area but they have covered the spread in just two of their last seven roadies. Defense is the name of the game for these teams and we don’t expect a lot of scoring in this contest. Arizona is in good shape if they can contain the Niners power rushing game somewhat and we feel they will. As such we’ll play the Cards with the points!
