It is still just the middle of April, but BetMGM has released win totals for all 32 NFL teams in 2021. This season there will be 17 games instead of a 16-game season.
What are the projections for the Arizona Cardinals?
After an eight-win season in 2020, BetMGM has their projected win total at an even eight. The price for both the Over and the Under is -110 (bet $110 to win $100).
As for playoff odds, the lines suggest it is more likely they will not make the postseason. BetMGM has, among the different team season specials, the odds for whether each team will make the postseason or now. A YES bet is +200 (bet $100 to win $200), while a NO bet is -250 (bet $250 to win $100).
To get over that would mean a season over .500, going at least 9-8.
The next step in the Cardinals’ progress would be a playoff berth. Since 2018, they went from three wins to five and a tie to eight last season. They will likely need at least 10 to make the postseason.
With the additions of J.J. Watt, A.J. Green, James Conner, Malcolm Butler and Rodney Hudson, the Cardinals should be better than last year. If you believe that, then you should bet the Over.
As for the postseason, as tough as the NFC West might be, betting they make the playoffs gives you better value. With the talent they have added, failing to make it would be a massive disappointment and could lead to changes in the organization.
