Super Bowl Sleeper: Kyler Murray And The Arizona Cardinals

  • The Arizona Cardinals have started the season 2-0.
  • Arizona's odds to win the Super Bowl are +2500.

PHOENIX – Through two weeks of the regular season, the Arizona Cardinals have been one of the hottest teams in the league. They have gotten off to a 2-0 start and have been backed by a lethal offense led by QB Kyler Murray.

What is surprising about the Cardinals' start to the season is that their Super Bowl odds do not reflect their performance, as they sit at +2500 odds behind teams like the Cleveland Browns, Green Bay Packers, and Baltimore Ravens who all have one loss.

Super Bowl 56 Odds

  • Kansas City Chiefs +500
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers +500
  • Buffalo Bills +1100
  • Los Angeles Rams +1100
  • San Francisco 49ers +1100
  • Baltimore Ravens +1400
  • Cleveland Browns +1400
  • Green Bay Packers +1400
  • Seattle Seahawks +2000
  • Arizona Cardinals +2500
  • Dallas Cowboys +2500
  • Tennessee Titans +2500

The Arizona Cardinals have been on a tear in their two wins having scored over 30 points in each of those games and holding their own on defense as they are a near Top-10 team on defense in terms of yards allowed per game.

Also, Kyler Murray has done a spectacular job starting the season for the Cardinals as he is currently playing at an MVP level. Murray has thrown the second-most yards so far with 689 and the second-most touchdowns with seven. He has also rushed for 51 yards and two touchdowns. With that, his preseason MVP odds went from above +2000 down to +650 which are tied for the second shortest in the league.

As for the Cardinals' schedule for the rest of the season, they will have plenty of 50/50 games against the teams in their division, being it is one of the toughest in the NFL. They do have some games against well below-average teams such as the Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Detroit Lions, and Chicago Bears.

Their odds could potentially shift even more as NFL sportsbooks have shifted the odds for their win total. They opened up the season with even -115 odds on their 10.5 win total and have seen the line shift in favor of the UNDER. With that, now might be the time to get in on the Cardinals' betting lines as online sportsbooks do not think highly enough of them just yet.
