The (2-8) Arizona Cardinals are on the road this Sunday against the (5-4) Houston Texans. Here are the best bets for this game.
The Houston Texans are the better team and are at home. I am very comfortable in betting on them to win by more than six points. The Cardinals were able to defeat the Atlanta Falcons last week but the Texans are much better. The Falcons don’t have a dynamic quarterback like C.J. Stroud and that will be the difference in this game.
C.J. Stroud Over 262.5 Passing Yards
Houston Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud has really hit his stride over the last few weeks. Two weeks ago against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers he passed for 470 yards. Last week against the Cincinnati Bengals he passed for 356 yards. There is no reason to believe that the Cardinals will be the team to slow him down.
Arizona has a good passing defense per their ranking but opposing teams have also not tested their passing defense in a major way. The Texans will test that secondary and C.J. Stroud should take full advantage of the Cardinals.
Tank Dell Over 56.5 Receiving Yards
C.J. Stroud has to pass the ball to someone to get all of those yards that I am predicting. Tank Dell is that someone. Dell is hitting his stride as well and it should continue against the Cardinals. The Cardinals have given up the 11th most yards to wide receivers this season. I love Dell over 56.5 receiving yards.
Kyler Murray Over 241.5 Passing Yards
The Texans should take an early lead in this game which will cause the Cardinals to pass the ball. Houston’s pass defense is not great. They are allowing 246 passing yards per game, only eight teams are giving up more passing yards per game. I love Murray to go over 241.5 passing yards in this one.
Trey McBride Over 55.5 Receiving Yards
Trey McBride had the best game of his career last week against the Atlanta Falcons. He caught eight passes for 131 yards. Atlanta has given up the most receptions to tight ends so far this season. The team who has given up the second highest amount of receptions to tight ends so far this season is the Houston Texans. McBride will definitely have the opportunity to live up to his new nickname of “Big Play Trey”.
