Odds are a funny thing.

When you look at offseason odds for the Arizona Cardinals, they are mostly picked to finish fourth in the NFC West, the odds are long to win the NFC West.

That is not shocking, the Seahawks won the division last year, the Los Angeles Rams beat the Cardinals for the final playoff spot and won a game, then upgraded at the most important position, quarterback. Meanwhile, the belief is the San Francisco 49ers will be healthy enough to be more like 2019 than 2020.

So, Vegas odds putting them as the least likely team to win the NFC West is not surprising.

What do those odds look like?

From Oddsmaker:

  • NFC West
  • +600
  • 14.3%
  • (4th NFC West)

Meanwhile, the funny thing is that the Cardinals are middle of the road for winning the NFC:

  • NFC Winner
  • +2200
  • 4.3%
  • 8th (NFC)

The Arizona Cardinals have to figure out the NFC West, that is the reality of the situation and oddsmakers are showing it.
