POINT SPREAD: New Orleans Saints +1.5 (-112) at Unibet

The Arizona Cardinals have failed to cover the spread in four of their last five Thursday games so there is little reason to believe that they will do it here despite being at home and playing a Saints team that may or may not be fielding its starting QB, something that might be good to check on at a game time before you bet.

According to NFL rankings, the Saints have a more productive offense than the Cardinals, but Arizona has the better defense and with the addition of newly acquired WR Robbie Anderson Murray gets another solid target, so all that is no doubt why the oddsmakers are expecting this game to be a close one, a win here helping one of these teams in any future NFC tiebreakers.

Some fun matchups to watch for in this one – Cardinals DE J.J. Watt who can get after the quarterback versus Saints LT James Hurst who will be doing his best to keep Watt from executing any sacks on either QB Dalton or Jameis Winston; also watch for Cardinals WR A.J. Green versus Saints CB Paulson Adebo or CB Marshon Lattimore (abdomen) if he can play.

POINTS TOTAL: Under 44.5 (-106) at FanDuel

Each of the New Orleans Saints' last 11 Thursday Night Football games has gone UNDER the total points line, so that is what we can expect here in Week 7, of course, anything can happen so it might be a good idea to do some research on what these two teams have been scoring on either side of the football.

On offense, the Saints average 23.5 points per game, and the Cardinals average 19.0 points per game, a total of 42.5 points that still keeps us UNDER, while New Orleans's defense keeps opponents to 26.3 points per game and Arizona keeps opponents to 23.7 points per game, that total of 50 far enough over what the oddsmakers are listing that it is worth considering for a bet.

Make sure to check out for key injuries to playmakers since that could affect the final score in any matchup, and in Week 7 the New Orleans Saints have 8 players listed as questionable to play including WRs Jarvis Landry (ankle), Chris Olave (concussion), and Michael Thomas (foot), while the Arizona Cardinals also have 8 injured players including placekicker Matt Prater (hip).

An interesting fact that may or may not affect this bet is that the Cardinals have lost each of their last eight games at State Farm Stadium, a trend that is bound to end at some point but who knows if it will be against these Saints, but patterns like that can help if you are on the edge of taking either side of this bet.

Here is how this bet would work – if you were to bet $100 for the Saints to win outright, you would win back your wager plus another $100 for taking that chance, whereas you would have to bet $120 if you think that the Cardinals will win this game in points in order to win back $100 plus your original investment, this wager a fun one since it keeps it simple for bettors to follow.

Weather will not affect this game since State Farm Stadium is covered in glass, but a win here for the Saints could depend on who can suit up as a quarterback, so be sure to check back close to game time to see if Jameis Winston is prepared to play since he could have a better chance than backup Andy Dalton of running the New Orleans offense effectively enough to win outright.
