The NFL playoffs have finally arrived and the field of 14 teams vying for a Super Bowl is set. Super wild-card weekend concludes on Monday with an exciting matchup.
Here are our best bets for the Monday night game between the Arizona Cardinals and Los Angeles Rams.
Arizona Cardinals at Los Angeles Rams (-3.5, 50)
Burke: For two teams with good records, it doesn’t feel like either the Rams or Cardinals are trustworthy. The two head-to-head meetings during the regular season came down to turnovers. The Cardinals won 37-20 as an underdog in Los Angeles because of Rams miscues, including a turnover on downs, a missed field goal and a fumble that led to a short field. The box score was actually pretty even, as both teams averaged at least six yards per play.
In the second meeting, won 30-23 on the road by Los Angeles as an underdog, it was Arizona’s turn to give up a short field and have a red zone turnover. In that game, both teams also had at least six yards per play. The offenses outperformed the defenses in both games, so maybe you look towards the over here.
