How to Bet Eagles vs. Cardinals in Arizona

Even though the Eagles are favored to pick up the win, I don’t like how their defense finished their last game. I see the Cardinals covering the spread as 10.5-point underdogs.

I’m taking the under with the current over/under line at 48. Throughout the season, games involving Arizona have averaged 45.2 points per game, and I anticipate this game will not exceed 48.
