The Arizona Cardinals’ Super Bowl odds have cooled off almost as quickly as the weather in the Valley.
That’s the takeaway from Arizona sports betting experts, who list the Cardinals either eighth or ninth in the NFL’s Super Bowl odds race — a week after most of those same sites listed them fourth or fifth out of 32 teams.
That’ll happen when you lose to a 1-11-1 team, however, which is exactly what the Cardinals did Sunday — falling to the Detroit Lions, 30-12.
Arizona will try to snap its two-game losing skid when it hosts the Indianapolis Colts at 6:15 p.m. on Christmas Night on the NFL Network.
Cardinals’ Super Bowl Odds Take a Hit
The universal theme Monday morning at Arizona sportsbooks is the Cardinals are no longer among the league’s top teams.
The Cardinals dropped to either eighth or ninth in the NFL, with Super Bowl-winning odds now ranging from +1300 FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona to +1800 at DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona and SuperBook Sports Arizona as of Monday afternoon.
In between those two figures were Caesars Sportsbook Arizona and Fubo Sportsbook Arizona (+1400, 8th in NFL) and TwinSpires Sportsbook Arizona and Unibet Arizona (+1700).
The Cardinals were previously +900 on BetMGM Arizona, Caesars Sportsbook, and DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona.
Cardinals Slight Favorites to Beat Colts Saturday
The going may be tough for Kyler Murray and company, but NFL betting odds are still in their corner this weekend.
The Cardinals are listed at -1.5 (-110) to beat Indianapolis on DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona and BetMGM Arizona, while the oddsmakers at FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona have them at -2 (-110).
For those looking to make a moneyline wager, BetMGM Arizona has the Cardinals at -125, as does DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona, and FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona has the home side at -124.
The over/under is listed at 50 total points (-110) at DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona, 49.5 (-115) at FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona, and 49.5 (-110) on BetMGM Arizona.
What Cardinals Can Achieve With a Win
The 10-4 Cardinals still have a half-game lead in the NFC West over the Los Angeles Rams, who are 9-4 entering Tuesday’s rescheduled game with Seattle.
The Cardinals can clinch a playoff sport by beating the Colts on Saturday, and at least for the moment, own the tiebreaker over the Rams in the race for the NFC West title.
Right now, Arizona holds the No. 4 spot in the NFC playoffs, meaning they’d have to face the fifth-seeded Rams in the Wild Card round if the playoffs started today.
The Cardinals last made the NFL playoffs in 2015 when they went 13-3. They lost to Carolina, 49-15, in the NFC Championship Game.
