Preview

The New England Patriots hit the road and will visit the Arizona Cardinals at the State Farm Stadium. These teams haven't faced each other since 20-21 season where the Pats took the win 20-17 at home.

 

Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals get here with a 4-8 record after losing 25-24 against the Chargers at home last week. Murray threw for 191 yards, two touchdowns and an interception and ran for a score after missing the previous two games with a hamstring injury. The Cardinals had their top two receivers, DeAndre Hopkins and Marquise Brown, on the field for the first time this season.

Defensively, the team has struggled, allowing 240 passing yards, and allowing 114 rushing yards per game. J.J. Watt has 6 1/2 sacks, which is more than he had in the previous two years combined. Zach Allen has a career-high nine tackles for loss.

 

New England Patriots

The Patriots get here with 6-6 record and are 3-3 on the road ranking 4th in the AFC East. Last week, they lost against the Bills 24-10 at home. For the majority of the night, Mac Jones was nervous and unsure. He completed 22 of 36 passes for 195 yards and a touchdown. The Patriots converted three of twelve third-down attempts and went 0 for one in the red zone.

The Patriots ranks #2 in defense and is allowing 18.8 points per game. They're giving up 231 passing yards per game and allowing an average of only 104.0 yards rushing per game.

New England are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games against Arizona.

New England are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games against Arizona.

New England are 3-6 SU in their last 9 games on the road.

New England are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Arizona.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Arizona's last 6 games.

Arizona are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Arizona's last 7 games against New England.

Arizona are 1-11 SU in their last 12 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Cardinals have been struggling all season and have lost 7 of their 8 games at home so far but they're now healthier than they've been most of the season, with quarterback Kyler Murray, running back James Conner, and top receivers DeAndre Hopkins and Marquise Brown all available for the first time this season. The Patriots have been awful offensively and their defense is the reason of why the have been able to win games. However, the Cardinals played better last week and I like them to bounce back and get the win at home.

PICK: Cardinals ML (+105)
