Mims' Thursday Night Football Picks: Saints vs Cardinals, Kyler Murray and Alvin Kamara props, over/over
The Thursday Night Football Game has the Arizona Cardinals against the New Orleans Saints. The Cardinals and the Saints are 2-4. The Cardinals are favored by 2.5 and the total is 44.0. The money line is -110 for the Cardinals and +118 for the Saints.
Head Coach Match Up: Cardinal Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury and Saints Head Coach Dennis Allen are even. It should be noted Kingsbury came under fire after the Cardinals loss19-9 to the Seattle Seahawks last week and is on the hot seat.
Player Props: Kyler Murray under 246.5 passing yardage. This bet is priced at -131. Murray threw for 250 against the Eagles and 222 against a weak Seattle Seahawks defense. He goes under. Alvin Kamara over 61.5 yards rushing. The Price is -135. Kamara has averaged over 100 yards in his last two games. Take him over.
The Consensus: 62% of the money is being wagered on Arizona. 56% of the action is on over.
The Selection: The Cardinals are in the bottom half in the NFL in points scored with an average of 19 per game. The Saints are making a game time decision at quarterback and have 5 key players ruled out for this game. Two of them are at wide receiver. Michael Thomas has a foot injury and Jarvis Landry has a sore ankle. The return of wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins will aid the Cardinals. Go with the Cardinals minus the points and the under.
