Arizona Cardinals vs. New Orleans Saints Betting Data

Another Thursday Night Football game is upon us and while many (and rightfully so) fans are questioning if tonight's game is even watchable due to...let's just say lackluster TNF games to start the 2022-23 NFL season to this point, especially over the last two weeks. When it comes to tonight's showdown, both of these teams need to make a statement to get back into the mix in a murky NFC playoff picture.

The Arizona Cardinals have elite playmakers all over the place on offense but for some reason, something just isn't clicking for Kyler Murray and co. The Cards were immediately humbled in their week one contest when they were throttled by Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs to the tune of a 44-21 scoreline. Arizona would seemingly get back on track with a 29-22 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 2 but would fall right back off the ship by losing to the Los Angeles Rams.

Following a lackluster win over the lowly Carolina Panthers, the Cardinals head into tonight's game on the back of back-to-back losses against the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles and most recently, a nightmare 19-9 loss to the not-so-impressive Seattle Seahawks, last Sunday afternoon.

Meanwhile, the New Orleans Saints have dealt with injury after injury after injury...and the hits keep coming. Just as Michael Thomas looked like he was getting back to his old ways, he's been right back out of the lineup with injuries and he won't take the field tonight in Glendale. His running mate, wideout Jarvis Landry won't be in the lineup for tonight's contest either, as won't TE Adam Trautman, and former Pro Bowl CB, Marshon Lattimore.

The status of starting QB, Jameis Winston is still up in the air and the former first-overall pick is being tabbed as a true game-time decision. When it comes to the on-the-field product, the Saints are just as up-and-down as their injuries are. New Orleans kicked off their 2022-23 campaign with a narrow 27-24 victory over NFC South rivals, the Atlanta Falcons but would quickly lose three straight against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Carolina Panthers, and Minnesota Vikings. The Saints claimed victory in a Week 5 victory in the form of a 39-32 shootout against the Seattle Seahawks but head into Arizona after a narrow 30-26 home loss against Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals.

Arizona Cardinals vs. New Orleans Saints Total Betting

Total% Of Bets

The total for this one is a scary, scary place.

Let's take a look at EVERY Thursday Night Football game's total from the first six weeks of the 2022-23 NFL season:

  • Buffalo Bills (31) @ Los Angeles Rams (10) - O/U 51
  • Kansas City Chiefs (27) vs. Los Angeles Chargers (24) - O/U 52.5
  • Cleveland Browns (29) vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (17) - O/U 38
  • Cincinnati Bengals (27) vs. Miami Dolphins (15) - O/U 49
  • Indianapolis Colts (12) @ Denver Broncos (9) - O/U 42
  • Washington Commanders (12) @ Chicago Bears (7) - O/U 39

That's right, Thursday Night Football has been pretty much unwatchable from a quality standpoint, but luckily, no game is ever un-bettable. Without the above results from past TNF games, this season in mind, it's already a tricky total to bet on for tonight's matchup as it boasts one of the best (4-2 to the over) teams in the NFL in the form of the New Orleans Saints and one of the worst (1-5 to the over) teams in the National Football League in the form of the Arizona Cardinals.

It gets EVEN TRICKIER when you take all of the injuries to tonight's participants into consideration as Saints' starting QB Jameis Winston is a game-time decision but wideouts Michael Thomas and Jarvis Landry will both be missing tonight's contest due to injury. It's also worth keeping in mind that star tailback, Alvin Kamara has missed games this season due to injury as well.

On the opposite side of the spectrum, it appeared as if week seven would be a great week (at least on paper) for the Arizona Cardinals as star receiver, DeAndre Hopkins will be returning from a six-game suspension and according to all accounts, will be an all systems go for the former All-Pro wideout. However, it appears as if starting RB, James Conner will miss his second-straight contest due to a rib injury, however, the former Pittsburgh Panther (and Steeler) tailback is listed as a game-time decision. Another blow to the Cards is one of the best receivers in the NFL through six weeks and major off-season acquisition, Hollywood Brown will miss the next month-plus with a foot issue.

Arizona Cardinals vs. New Orleans Saints Odds Comparison

Now that you have all of the data for tonight's Thursday Night Football showdown, let's take a look at what the best bets for the game are and where the best place to make those wagers are.

As previously mentioned, betting on the total for this one is a bit tricky as the Saints are one of the best over teams in the league, while the Cardinals are perhaps the worst team in the National Football League when it comes to hitting the over.

Despite their recent struggles and what looks to be a 4-6 loss of star wideout, Hollywood Brown, the Cardinals ML may be the way to go tonight. Saints Head Coach, Dennis Allen officially ruled out a number of players for the club in the form of WR Michael Thomas, WR Jarvis Landry, TE Adam Trautman, G Andrus Peat, and star CB Marshon Lattimore for tonight's matchup with Arizona. In addition, starting QB, Jameis Winston is a true game-time decision, possibly meaning that the Florida State product still isn't near 100% even if he does get back to his signal-calling duties, this evening.

With the Arizona Cardinals ML being the play for tonight's game, DraftKings Sportsbook looks to be your best spot to make that bet as the book is offering the Cards ML at (-140) for their showdown with the Saints, while other books have Arizona's moneyline in the (-145) to (-150) range.

In addition to the great Cardinals ML odds, DraftKings Sportsbook also has the better odds for the Saints, if you're leaning toward backing Jameis Winston (or Andy Dalton) and co., as New Orleans comes in at a solid (+120) ML, in comparison to (+110) or worse at other sportsbooks.
