Cardinals vs. 49ers CashBet Wagering Analysis

The Arizona Cardinals are down to 4th string at quarterback.  The Cardinals will wrap up a lost betting on NFL season in week 18 at the 49ers.  San Francisco is down to 3rd string at quarterback but is thriving.  Rookie QB Brock Purdy has been unphased.  To show, Purdy has played with the nerve and cool of a seasoned veteran.  The 49ers have won the NFC West and can clinch the top seed in the NFC this week.  Arizona has gone from a playoff team to one that may clean house next week.

Cardinals vs. 49ers CashBet Wagering Analysis

The Cardinals have no sportsbook support from a public that wants nothing to do with their ineptitude.  Additionally, the Arizona QB situation sends gamblers to the other side.  On the other hand, the 49ers have caught the fancy of bettors.  Of great concern is that San Francisco could be overpriced.

Cardinals End Their Season from Hell With Clipped Wings  

Last game, the Arizona Cardinals lost 20-19 against the Atlanta Falcons as 7-point road dogs.  The game went under the Betting on football total of 40x.  Arizona has a record of 4-12 straight up, 8-8 against the spread, and 8-8 over/under the total.  Arizona ranks 21st for total offense, 18th for passing, 20th for rushing, and 21st for scoring.  While defensively, they rank 21st overall, 25th against the pass, 13th against the rush, and 30th for points allowed.  Also, Arizona ranks 19th for fewest turnovers lost and 13th for takeaways.

The Cardinals, playing with their fourth starting quarterback in four weeks, have lost six straight and eight of nine.  David Blough completed 22 of 40 passes for 222 yards, one touchdown, and no interceptions filling in for Colt McCoy, who is sidelined with a concussion.

Ridder drove Atlanta 72 yards in 12 plays in the final five minutes of the fourth quarter.  The Falcons reached the red zone with 1:49 to play and ticked down the clock to set up Koo’s game-ending kick.

49ers Strike Gold With Purdy

Last game, the San Francisco 49ers won 37-34 against the Las Vegas Raiders as 10-point road favorites.  The game went over the NFL bets total of 41.  San Francisco has a record of 12-4 straight up, 10-6 against the spread, and 8-8 over/under the total.  San Francisco ranks 5th for total offense, 13th for passing, 9th for rushing, and 7th for scoring.  While defensively, they rank 2nd overall, 19th against the pass, 1st against the rush, and 1st for points allowed.  Also, Arizona ranks 3rd for fewest turnovers lost and 5th for takeaways.

Tashaun Gipson intercepted Jarrett Stidham in overtime and returned it 56 yards, setting up Robbie Gould’s 23-yard field goal that gave the Niners a 37-34 win over the Raiders.  It was the 49ers’ ninth consecutive win.

The victory was especially important for the 49ers, who can clinch the No. 2 seed in the NFC with a win against Arizona next week or a loss by Minnesota.  San Francisco also has a shot at the No. 1 seed and a bye if Philadelphia loses to the Giants in Week 18.

San Francisco overcame a rare off day from the league’s top-ranked defense entering the game.  The 34 points were the most the 49ers allowed since their most recent loss, 44-23, to Kansas City on October 23.

Christian McCaffrey Stats

Christian McCaffrey rushed for 121 yards and caught six passes for 72 yards.  San Francisco’s midseason trade acquisition surpassed 1,000 yards rushing for the third time and has scored touchdowns in five consecutive games.

Davante Adams had seven receptions for 153 yards and two touchdowns for the Raiders, who were eliminated from playoff contention.  Stidham, who replaced Derek Carr after the nine-year starter was benched earlier in the week, completed 23 of 34 passes for 365 yards.
