Oddsmakers don’t expect the Arizona Cardinals to recover against the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday at Allegiant Stadium after starting off the season in an 0-1 hole.

FanDuel Sportsbook listed the Cardinals as 5.5-point underdogs with money line odds of +190 in Week 2, their first road test of the season.

According to the Score app, the Cardinals opened at +3.5 against the Raiders until it was bet up to +5.5.

The line movement was identical to what the Cardinals experienced in Week 1 when they opened up as 3.5-point underdogs against the Chiefs before it was bet up to +5.5 by kickoff.

Arizona was dismantled in that one by a final score of 44-21 and failed to cover.

If you are looking for alternative ways to bet on the game, oddsmakers have listed the over/under point total at 51.5.

Another interesting prop bet opportunity can be found in the Cardinals wide receiver room where Greg Dortch is listed a +4300 to lead the league in receiving yards on Sunday. That means a $10 bet nets you back a total of $440 dollars if he were to accomplish the feat.

Dortch is listed ahead of some high-profile names at the position including D.K. Metcalf, Deebo Samuel, Julio Jones, Michael Thomas and former teammate Christian Kirk. Teammate Marquise Brown is listed ahead of Dortch at +2900.
