Arizona Cardinals vs Carolina Panthers opening odds: Despite Kyler Murray’s status, the Arizona Cardinals open as big favorites

For the Arizona Cardinals, 8-1 is a sweet, sweet sight after the ending to their Thursday Night Football matchup with the Green Bay Packers.

A miscommunication and a couple of key mistakes from the wide receivers is all that stands between the Arizona Cardinals and 9-0.

Yet, this week when the Cardinals took on the San Francsico 49ers people still doubted. Even before the game the Cardinals only opened as slight road favorites against a far inferior team.

Then when Kyler Murray ‘s status hung in the balance the line swung all the way over to the 49ers as 2.5 point favorites.

I did not think we would see such a thing this week, even though the Cardinals still do not know the status of Kyler Murray, the NFL betting community does not view the Carolina Panthers, despite being 4-5 on the season, like they do the San Francisco 49ers.

That is why when DraftKings Sportsbook! finally released the betting line, I was not shocked to see the Cardinals open as 10-point favorites.
