Week 7 NFL Picks: San Francisco 49ers @ Arizona Cardinals
Date: Monday, October 29th, 8:30 ET
Location: University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, AZ
NFL Betting Odds: San Francisco -6.5
49ers vs. Cardinals On TV: ESPN
On one glance, it really seems like the 49ers are going to win this game and win it handily. There really aren’t any major injuries that are going to keep players out of the fold, while Arizona is playing this one without all of its running backs and without QB Kevin Kolb. The Niners have only been beaten twice this year, both of which came in some tough spots, while the Cardinals have dropped three in a row after winning the first four games of the campaign. However, a closer look shows that the Birds really have a chance to at least stick within this number. If the offense can find its way to just 17 points and the defense can keep up its streak of consecutive games allowing 23 points or fewer, this one will be covered. The 49ers have now failed to cover two spreads in a row right along these lines (-7 vs. the Giants, -7.5 vs. the Seahawks), and this could be the third failed attempt at a cover. Arizona will fight hard in this one as if its season depended on it, and though the team will come up short, it should stick inside of the number.
San Francisco 49ers @ Arizona Cardinals Pick: Arizona Cardinals +6.5
