Cardinals Super Bowl 58 Odds: September 20, 2023
The Cardinals Super Bowl odds are +40000 at DraftKings. For fans in Arizona, there is reason to believe that the Cardinals can rise to the top... of next season’s draft board. Below is a look at the odds for everything else, but note that Arizona sports betting promos could improve your bankroll for some of these odds.
At +40000 to make the Super Bowl, the Arizona Cardinals are tied with the Houston Texans for the worst Super Bowl odds in the entire NFL, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. Having started the season 0-2 the Cardinals, who had low expectations when the season began, have done little to change the perception. Using implied probability, Arizona has just a 0.2% chance of winning the Super Bowl.
There isn’t much optimism for the Cardinals to do much else, either. The Cardinals are listed at +20000 to win the NFC. It is by far the worst odds in the NFC with the Carolina Panthers next closest at +10000.
At +4500, Arizona has the worst odds of any team to win any division. The next worst odds belong to the New York Giants, who beat the Cardinals in Week 2, are listed at +2500 to win the NFC East. The Cardinals’ last division title came in 2015.
Cardinals Super Bowl Odds vs. NFC West
The Cardinals were not and are not expected to be particularly good this season. The same can't be said for the rest of their division.
The San Francisco 49ers entered the season as one of the favorites to not only win their division, but reach the Super Bowl. Nothing that's happened over the first two weeks has changed that, as their 2-0 record puts their NFC West title odds at -500 and their Super Bowl champion odds at +650, best on the league.
They are followed up by the Seattle Seahawks, who are 1-1, along with the Los Angeles Rams, also 1-1. The former is looking at +600 odds to win the NFC West while the latter is sitting at +1000.
Cardinals Week-by-Week Super Bowl Odds
- Week 1: +40000
- Week 2: +40000
- Week 3: +40000
The Cardinals began the season with the worst Super Bowl odds in the NFL, and despite their being competitive in each of the first two games the resulting losses have done nothing to improve their odds. On the bright side it seems as though their odds may have bottomed out, meaning there is nowhere to go but up.

Arizona Cardinals 2023 Schedule and Betting Lines
Arizona's first two games were against teams hailing from the NFC East, which going into the season featured a pair of teams many could have seen in the Super Bowl. Unfortunately for the Cardinals, neither of their first two opponents, both of whom beat them, are the teams with high expectations.
That changes in Week 3 when the Cardinals host the Dallas Cowboys, who have won their first two in convincing fashion and are looking like a team that could be a factor in the postseason. It's at home, where one can expect a large presence of visiting fans to attend.
Things will not get any easier the next week as the Cardinals will hit the road to face the San Francisco 49ers. From there they'll return home to play the Cincinnati Bengals.
It's a brutal start for the team, but if they can somehow steal a win or two then it could be a sign that the season may not go as poorly as many expect.
Key Contributors Toward Cardinals Super Bowl Odds
Joshua Dobbs is filling in for Kyler Murray, who cannot return until Week 5 at the earliest. Dobbs' Arizona debut was uninspiring, but he rebounded in Week 2 to post respectable numbers. He passed for 228 yards and one touchdown while also running in for a score. He led his team to 28 points, which while not enough to win the game at least inspired a bit of confidence that the team may have some hope until Murray returns.
Helping Dobbs and the offense was the resurgence of running back James Connor. He entered the season expecting to be the focal point of the team's attack, and in rushing for 106 yards and a score against the Giants he was certainly that. He did not catch a pass, though, which is rare for a player who is an incredibly effective weapon out of the backfield. Dobbs did spread the ball around to a handful of players, with tight end Zach Ertz and receivers Marquise "Hollywood" Brown and Michael Wilson getting the most attention.
On the other side of the ball, Arizona's defense looked dominant against the Giants -- and then the second half started. They'll be without star Budda Baker for at least the next four games, which means they'll be even more reliant on safety Jalen Thompson and pass rusher Dennis Gardneck. Free agent pick up Kyzir White has had a solid start to his Arizona career after coming over from the Philadelphia Eagles.

Cardinals Super Bowl LVIII Outlook and Predictions
An 0-2 start does not eliminate a team from the Super Bowl picture, but when little was expected of you to begin with it certainly doesn't help. With a new coaching staff and without their star QB it figured the Cardinals would struggle, and they have.
However, their 0-2 record does belie how competitive they've been. They held second-half leads in losses to Washington and New York, and in both games their defense showed some real effort. Their overall lack of talent and playmakers has been an issue and will continue to be one, unless of course some players surprise and play at a level not expected of them.
Perhaps no player embodies that hope more than Joshua Dobbs, the journeyman who was acquired late in training camp and earned the starting QB job for Week 1. He struggled then but was much improved in Week 2. If he can take anymore steps forward the offense may be good enough to support a defense that has looked mostly solid this season. If he has peaked, which is likely, then Arizona will be counting the days -- and most likely losses -- until Kyler Murray returns.
Cardinals Super Bowl History
The Arizona Cardinals franchise is the oldest in the NFL, yet it has appeared in just one Super Bowl -- against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLIII. It was a back-and-forth game with some memorable plays, but unfortunately for Arizona their last big one -- a 64-yard catch and run TD by Larry Fitzgerald that gave the Cardinals the lead -- was undone by a Ben Roethlisberger touchdown to Santonio Holmes with less than a minute remaining. Arizona got into range for a Hail Mary attempt, but Kurt Warner was sacked and lost a fumble to secure the 27-23 win for the Steelers. Adding salt to the wound, the following week Fitzgerald came down with what was a similar pass to the one Warner would have thrown for a touchdown in the Pro Bowl. If only ...
