The Arizona Cardinals are huge favorites heading into their week seven matchup with the Houston Texans ...

That is nuts.

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

Sporting News: Cardinals win 38-14 and cover the spread.

The Falcoholic: Cardinals (-1500)

Bleacher Report: Score Prediction: Cardinals 34, Texans 13

Pro Football Network: Texans vs. Cardinals Prediction: Cardinals 30, Texans 17

CBS Sports: Pick: Cardinals 38, Texans 13

FanSided: Pick: Arizona 41, Houston 16

AZ Central: Prediction: Cardinals 31, Texans 15

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.
