Arizona is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 home games. Philadelphia is 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings between these two teams and 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings between the two teams in Arizona.
I get why the points are tempting after Philadelphia took down the Saints, but the issue I have is that even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while. The Eagles got a win, but whoop. These guys are professional so they’re going to try to win games but the issue I’m having with this game is that I don’t think the Eagles have enough offensive firepower to keep pays with Arizona in this one. I’ll lay the points with the Cardinals here.
