Rams +14 at Cardinals (48½)
We can’t remember the Arizona Cardinals being favored by this many points against anyone! These are the same Cardinals who haven’t hosted a playoff game since they were the Chicago Cardinals back in the 1940s. Well, they will host a playoff game this year by defeating the Rams today. The question is by how much?
This year’s Cardinals are 7-5 against the spread, having dropped their last two. But those were to the Giants and Eagles. These are the Rams, who have lost a whopping eight times by margins ranging from 17 to 44 points. St. Louis is 1-4 ATS in its last 5 and showing no signs of improvement under new coach Jim Haslett.
There is a bit of history to this series in that the Cardinals used to be in St. Louis and Arizona QB Kurt Warner led the Rams to a Super Bowl title. Now Warner will be throwing numerous TD passes today to Larry Fitzgerald and a cast of thousands. CARDINALS.
