In what has been one of the worst seasons in Arizona Cardinals history, they have another low point thus far... They open the game against the Kansas City Chiefs, in Kansas City, as 17-point underdogs, the largest such line of the 2018 NFL season.

That number is massive in the NFL, that is more reserved for something like college football when a top ten team is playing against a bottom feeder or even an FCS team.

So, to see an NFL game with that type of line is something that we just are not accustomed to in the NFL and can be something that could work as a motivator in the NFL.

It was something that happened earlier this year when the Buffalo Bills went to Minnesota and not only covered the 16.5 point spread, but won straight up over the Vikings.

That is what the Cardinals hope to do on Sunday... And, if you are feeling confident, maybe you can give yourself a little holiday bonus:

Maybe the Cardinals will be feeling in the giving mood this week, not for points, but for fans who are buying into their team.
