Bet on the NFLNFL football odds for Sunday Night Football feature a NFC football betting matchup between the Arizona Cardinals and New York Giants from Giants Stadium. NFL football odds opened with the Giants as 7 point home favorites with a football betting total of 46.
This NFL football odds matchup features the past two champions of the NFC and two football betting favorites to make it back to Super Sunday next February.
The Arizona Cardinals stumbled out of the gate with a 1-2 start but have since gotten their online betting act together following their bye week as they have beaten the NFL football odds in their last 2 games to improve their overall record of 3-2 both straight up and against the spread. Arizona is coming off their best performance of the season in a 27-3 win over the Seattle Seahawks to easily cover the NFL football odds as 3 point road dogs.
The New York Giants, conversely, are coming off their worst performance with the NFL football odds in a 27-48 loss at New Orleans to the Saints as 3.5 road dogs. The Giants fell to 5-1 straight up and 4-1-1 against the spread. Coach Tom Coughlin offered no excuses for the loss at the Giants allowed 493 total yards.
“Obviously we could not stop them,” said Coughlin of the Saints. “No excuses. We played poorly.” Arizona quarterback Kurt Warner is back on track with the NFL football odds after a slow start. He now has a QB rating of 92.1 and threw for a season best 78% completion rate in the win at Seattle. Warner has completed 68% of his passes this year. The big improvement from Arizona with the NFL football odds, however, is their defense. The Cardinals now rank 8th best in the NFL for points allowed. Last week they sacked Seattle quarterback Matt Hasselbeck 5 times.
The Giants defense is still considered one of the best with the NFL football odds and may be highly motivated after last week’s humiliation at New Orleans. The Giants still rank as the best in total yards allowed but 17th in points permitted. The Cardinals and Giants have gone under the total in 6 out of their last 8 meetings. The home team has gotten the cash in 3 out of their last 4 head to head matchups.
