Arizona Cardinals odds, season predictions and best NFL futures bets Guide 2023

Welcome to The Bet Club NFL Arizona Cardinals betting guide for 2023.

The Arizona Cardinals started the 2021 season with a strong 10-2 record, raising hopes for their fans. However, since then, they have experienced a dramatic downturn, managing just 5 wins in their last 23 games. This abrupt decline has left many questioning the team’s future, and their outlook for the 2023 season appears bleak. Adding to their woes, former #1 overall pick Kyler Murray suffered a torn ACL in December of last year, and he underwent surgery to repair it in January. With his availability for the start of the regular season in doubt, the Cardinals face an uphill battle to regain their footing and contend in a highly competitive NFL. Will Arizona end up as the worst team in the league this season, or can they muster enough wins to avoid that dubious distinction? Let’s explore the odds and potential bets for the Arizona Cardinals in 2023.

Arizona Cardinals 2022 season recap

The Cardinals’ fortunes took a drastic turn after their impressive 10-2 start in 2021. In the following year, they struggled to maintain any consistency, never managing to surpass a .500 record. Their last encounter with a .500 record came in Week 4. Under the leadership of head coach Kliff Kingsbury, the team began the season with a somewhat respectable 4-6 record after 10 weeks. However, they faced a sudden decline as they proceeded to lose their final 7 games of the season. During this dismal stretch, the Cardinals suffered lopsided defeats, including two losses to the 49ers with a combined score of 76-23. The turning point came in Week 14 when quarterback Kyler Murray was injured in a Monday Night Football loss to New England. Subsequently, Colt McCoy, Trace McSorley, and David Blough shared quarterback duties, leading to a series of poor results. Ultimately, the Cardinals concluded the season with a disappointing 4-13 record, ranking third-worst in the league.

Arizona Cardinals 2023 NFL season predictions

The Cardinals are facing an uphill battle in 2023. Their recent performance, combined with the absence of Kyler Murray and the permanent loss of star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, suggests a challenging season ahead. While they may find some bright spots along the way, overall optimism seems limited.

Here are a couple of my predictions for the Arizona Cardinals in the upcoming season.

Best bet: Arizona Cardinals under 4.5 wins (-120)

The Arizona Cardinals are clearly not in a win-now mode and seem to be in a rebuilding phase. This was further solidified when they traded away the #3 overall pick in the NFL Draft to accumulate future selections. The team didn’t make significant improvements in free agency and opted for drafting players with potential rather than immediate impact players. When we look at their schedule, it appears challenging, and with Kyler Murray’s absence and the overall roster situation, winning more than a couple of games on the road seems unlikely. Despite the low win total, betting on the under still seems like the logical choice.

Arizona Cardinals season record predictions

The exact wins market might not be the best choice for this team given the uncertainty surrounding Murray’s injury. However, +450 odds on a 4-13 record could be the best value bet. The Cardinals may manage to win a couple of games in an NFC West division that lacks standout teams beyond the 49ers, and they could scrape together a couple more wins elsewhere. Nevertheless, even with Murray’s potential return to form, this team is expected to have a rough season.
