NFL odds, Week 3: New Orleans open as more than touchdown favorites over Cardinals

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

Not much love for the Cardinals.

The Arizona Cardinals will head on the road and take on the New Orleans Saints. Vegas opened their betting line and the Cards are not given much of a shot. To open the week of betting, the Saints were favored by 7.5 points. The over/under for scoring opened at 48.5 points.

Since the open, the line has already moved. One sports book has the line now at -9 in favor of the Saints, while most of the others moved in the Cards' direction, holding currently at seven points even.

So far, Arizona is 2-0 against the spread. As 4.5 point underdogs in Week 1, they lost by only three. Last week at home, Arizona was a one-point underdog. Of course, they won outright, rallying to a 25-21 victory.

If the line ends at higher than seven, I would take those points and wager on Arizona, who is proving to be a tough team. They appear to be a team that will keep games close, regardless of whether they win or lose.
