NFL gambling has seen the Cardinals get their act together with 3 consecutive wins over the NFL gambling odds while Carolina has been a colossal disappointment. The Carolina Panthers have a NFL gambling record of 2-4 straight up and 1-5 with the NFL gambling odds.
Last week the Panthers suffered an embarrassing 9-20 loss home loss to the Buffalo Bills as 7-point NFL gambling home favorites. The Arizona Cardinals are coming off their most impressive NFL gambling win of the season as they defeated the New York Giants 24-17 on Sunday Night Football as 9-point road dogs.
Arizona improved its NFL gambling record to 4-2 both straight up and with the NFL gambling odds. Carolina has been weak on both sides of the line this NFL gambling season as they rank 25th in points scored and 23rd in points allowed. Quarterback Jake Delhomme has been a NFL gambling liability with a dreadful season so far.
Delhomme has a QB rating of 56.5 and a disgraceful 4/13 touchdown to interception ratio. As a result he is in danger of losing his job to either Matt More or AJ Feeley. Coach John Fox hasn’t totally given up on Delhomme, however. “I still believe Jake is our best quarterback”, said Fox.
“I would have no reason to believe otherwise. Truth be told. But collectively we’ll do whatever it takes for us to improve. What this is I can’t honestly tell you this second. That is the best I can answer it”. The Cardinals NFL gambling success can be attributed to a much improved defense that ranks 7th in points allowed.
Quarterback Kurt Warner has also improved steadily after a slow start to the NFL gambling season. He has completed 67% of his passes for 1672 yards and 9 touchdowns while cutting down on interceptions.
Head coach Ken Whisenhunt also said the Cardinals are playing with a better attitude since their bye week as they are far less uptight than they were at the start of the NFL gambling campaign. “A number of people have commented to me that the players were happier, they were laughing when they were coming off the field”, said the coach.
“That was a significant shift in our mentality and our attitude, and its really showed up in the last 3 weeks”. Last year the Cardinals stunned everyone with a 33-13 playoff win at Carolina as 10 point dogs and the Panthers haven’t been the same since.
