The Arizona Cardinals are massive road underdogs heading into their matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Arizona Cardinals are likely heading to another three win season, and that shows in the books.

The Arizona Cardinals opened as 12-point underdogs according to DraftKings Sportsbook against the powerhouse and NFC East leading Philadelphia Eagles.

This is another massive line for the Cardinals and not a surprise.

The Eagles are 10-4 before their matchup with the New York Giants today, and barring injury to anyone of consequence, the line is likely to go up more than it is to go down.

The Cardinals defense came to play in the second half, but their offense wasn’t good enough to make a play and in the first half they were completely awful, which is always fun.

The Eagles will probably be running for close to 200 yards if not more in this one, so can the Cardinals offense find a way to keep pace?

They were not up to the task this week against the Bears, let’s see if they are in an early road game against one of the better teams in the NFC East.
