Cardinals given points by sportsbooks in potential backup QB battle with Rams
Sportsbooks do not expect the Arizona Cardinals to leave Los Angeles with a win Sunday against the Rams.
Arizona (3-6) is a 3-point underdog in its second battle with the Rams (3-5) of the season, one that is expected to look quite different than the first, a 20-12 win for L.A. in Week 3.
Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (hamstring) and Rams signal caller Matthew Stafford (concussion) are considered unlikely to play, according to multiple reports.
That presents Colt McCoy and John Wolford the chance to pick up their teams.
Arizona has -112 odds to cover while Los Angeles has -108 odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
The Cardinals’ moneyline is listed at +136.
With the uncertainties on offense, the game over-under is set at 38.5 points.
McCoy started three games for the Cardinals last year and went 2-1. Two of those games eclipsed 38 points scored.
The last time Arizona saw Wolford as a starter was in Week 17 of the 2020 season, an 18-7 win for the Rams.
