Football gambling fortunes have also been bad for the Arizona Cardinals as they have not solved the loss of retired QB Kurt Warner and are now a last place team with the football betting odds.
In an interconference matchup of two struggling last place teams the Arizona Cardinals will host the Denver Broncos with a start time on CBS of 4:20 PM ET. Sports Gambling will have the side and total odds on this matchup so be sure to open your account for all of the action on Sunday.
Denver has a NFL gambling record of 3-9 straight up and 4-8 against the spread with 8 of their games going over the total. The Broncos are coming off a 10-6 loss at Kansas City which was their third in a row as the McDaniels error came to a merciful end.
McDaniels alienated everyone in his less than 2 years at the helm from assistant coaches to players to fans. It speaks poorly of owner Pat Bowlen that he would have thought it was a good idea to give near total control of this valuable franchise to a career assistant that was 32 years of age at the time of his selection.
The damage McDaniels did to the team will take years to undo.
Arizona has a betting on NFL football record of 3-9 both straight up and against the spread with 7 of their games going over the total. The Cardinals have lost 7 games in a row and are coming off a 19-6 home loss to St. Louis last week as they went under the total for the 3rd consecutive game.
Arizona ranks a horrible 31st in the NFL for rushing, 30th for passing, and 31st for scoring offense while the defense has allowed the most points in the NFL.
In this matchup of two struggling football gambling commodities the intangibles could prove to be the difference as the Broncos may have a short “sugar rush” shot in the arm after the departure of McDaniels, which was signaled as the start of the franchise rebuilding itself into its former image.
Arizona must continue to try and find a way to win without Warner and get back into winning form for the 2011 season.
