That is nuts.
What do the NFL experts think, let’s take a look around the web.

Seven different sites and five of them have the Cardinals covering the absurd line. As of Friday, according to DraftKings Sportsbook the Arizona Cardinals are 18-point favorites. That is absurd, as the Cardinals in Arizona have never been two-touchdown favorites before.
However, the Texans are awful, the Cardinals are playing some of, if not the best football in the NFL and have covered the spread in five of their games... However, if you are a big degenerate like myself, they are only a coin-flip when it comes to hitting the over/under.
This game feels like a win, but 18 points is ridiculous in the NFL.
