Cardinals vs. Broncos opening line: Denver favored by a touchdown early in week

Arizona not getting a lot of respect from Vegas. `

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

With Week 4 nearly in the books (Monday Night Football still needs to be played), we can finally start looking ahead to next weekend, when the Arizona Cardinals play the Denver Broncos on the road.

To start the week, Las Vegas sports books have set the odds for next weekend and the Cardinals aren't being given much of a chance. The opening line for the game has the Broncos favored buy a touchdown.

And since the start of the week, the line has already moved more in favor of Denver. Denver is now favored by 8.5 points.

The over/under for this game is 49.5.

Why are the 3-0 Cardinals not getting more respect from bettors? Denver is a "public" team and naturally has the line shifted their way.

What is interesting is, as of Monday morning, 57 percent of the bets are on the Cardinals, so the line will probably shift back.

What do you think of the opening line?
