Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury is one of the betting favorites to be fired first in 2021, according to

Kingsbury is currently slated as the third-favorite to be fired first at +750 odds with only Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy (+600) and Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio (+500) ahead of him. Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy is also at +750 odds.

Kingsbury holds a 13-18-1 coaching record in his two seasons with the Cardinals, his only two seasons as a coach in the NFL.

Arizona finished third in the NFC West last season with an 8-8 record. The Cardinals dropped five of their final seven games to miss the playoffs for the fifth consecutive season thanks to losing a tiebreaker with the Bears.

The last time the Cardinals made the playoffs was 2015, when the team lost to the Carolina Panthers in the NFC Championship Game. The 2015 season was also the last time the Cardinals finished the regular season with a record above .500.

The FanDuel Sportsbook has the Cardinals right around .500 again with an over/under win total of 8.5 wins.

Arizona is currently the underdog to win the NFC West in the latest odds, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. However, the Cardinals are not major longshots at +600 odds.

The San Francisco 49ers are favorites to win the NFC West at +190 odds followed by the Los Angeles Rams (+200) and the Seattle Seahawks (+280).
