Mismatch of the week. The 10-3 Arizona Cardinals travel to Detroit to take on the one-win Lions in what is expected to be a one-sided affair.
Former Steelers RB James Conner has found a new lease of life in this Arizona Cardinals team and has been one of the league’s best players with 16 TDs in his last 11 games. Kyler Murray would be looking at a potential MVP season if he didn’t miss time with injury earlier in the year and the diminutive passer will be keen to finish the regular season strongly to head into the playoffs on form. Murray has played in ten games this season, throwing for over 260 yards in seven and tossing two or more TD passes in six, and I like him to do both against what should be an overmatched Lions defense.
Spread: Cardinals -12.5
Game Prediction: Cardinals 28-3 Lions
Best Bet: Cardinals to win, James Conner to score a TD, Kyler Murray over 257.5 passing yards and over 1.5 TD passes @ 3/1 with Bet365 Bet Builder. [0.5]
