The Arizona Cardinals are considered the favorites for one of the biggest Thursday Night Football matchups in history.

According to FanDuel Sportsbook, Arizona is a 6.5-point favorite on game day against the Green Bay Packers and have -270 odds on the moneyline.

Arizona started the week across many sportsbooks as 3.5-point favorites, according to Odds Shark. The spread had already jumped a half point when Green Bay wide receiver Davante Adams was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday. After that news, sportsbooks gave Arizona two more points to make the Cardinals a 6-point favorite.

That injury also prompted the game’s over/under to drop. At the start of the week, sportsbooks set the over/under around 53 points, according to Odds Shark. FanDuel currently has the over/under set at 51 points.

Odds did not update, though, after the Cardinals ruled out defensive end J.J. Watt on Wednesday with a shoulder injury.

Arizona’s odds at divisional, conference and a Super Bowl title continue to rise as the team keeps on racking up wins.

The Cardinals are the third-favorite to win the Super Bowl, according to FanDuel, with +850 odds. Only the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Buffalo Bills have more favorable odds than the Cardinals.

Arizona’s +450 odds to win the NFC championship are second-best only to Tampa Bay. The Cardinals have a slight edge over the Los Angeles Rams (+460) for the second-best odds. Green Bay is also not too far behind Arizona with +550 NFC championship odds.

Arizona’s slight edge in the NFC West title odds has grown in recent weeks. This week, the Cardinals are at -195 to win the division followed by the Rams’ +175 odds.

The Cardinals’ 7-0 start has made them a favorite in another area as well. FanDuel gives Arizona +350 odds to finish with the best regular season record. Tampa Bay sits right behind the Cardinals with +400 odds.
