Kyler Murray NFL Cardinals

NFL | Cardinals to cover the spread in Week 2?

Is there some value in backing Kyler Murray and the Cardinals against the spread this week?

After suffering a tough defeat at the hands of the Chiefs last week, Arizona hit the road for the first time this season to take on the Las Vegas Raiders.

Despite allowing 44 points to be scored against them last week, the Cardinals have been marked as +6 underdogs which looks generous when you delve a bit deeper into the stats.

ARIZONA’S AMAZING AWAY SPREAD STATS

The stat that is in question involves the Cardinals’ road games and betting against the spread, which makes for interesting reading.

Since 2019, Arizona are 17-7-2 against the spread which is currently the best in the NFL. They are also 13-4-2 against the spread as an away underdog.

It suggests that the Cardinals are usually underestimated on their travels, and they normally start well in September, as they beat the spread in five of their last seven games played in the opening month of the NFL season.

SHOULD YOU BACK IT?

The Raiders were not terrible last week against the Chargers, but they lost because of sloppy plays. Derek Carr was picked off three times and their run game wasn’t the strongest either.

Davante Adams proved to kick up a huge level of production as he did back at Green Bay, but overall it was a slightly hit-and-miss performance from Las Vegas.

The Cardinals have either won or lost by less than two points in their last three meetings against the Raiders, so it could well be worth siding with Kyler Murray and co. in terms of the spread this week.
