Chiefs at Cardinals Betting Preview
2 of the most dynamic offensive lineups will be clashing on September 11 when the Cards and the Chiefs play their first game of the regular season.
Now, both of these squads will need to adapt to playing without their key offensive guys from last season.
That’s because the Chiefs traded Tyreek Hill to Miami, and DeAndre Hopkins is under a six-game suspension, and won’t see action in this game.
That being said, the teams are trying to adapt to the absence of these key stars.
The Chiefs signed free agents Marquez Valdes-Scantling and JuJu Smith-Schuster; plus, they also drafted Skyy Moore during the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft.
When it comes to Arizona, the team managed to reunite QB1 Kyler Murray with college buddy Marquise Brown.
Despite losing Tyreek, the Chiefs are still projected as one of the teams with the best chances of making it to the Super Bowl.
And as they are the better team, it is not surprising that Kansas City is short road favorites.
The big question here is: How is Arizona going to slow down Patrick Mahomes, one of the top 5 quarterbacks in the league?
Although Hill left, Mahomes still counts with an offensive line that is considered elite, and that includes names such as Creed Humphrey, Trey Smith, and Joe Thuney.
And, let’s also consider the fact that the Chiefs will be going against a defensive lineup that will be missing Chandler Jones, who was sent to Las Vegas.
And what is worse, the Cards actually did not replace him. The team will have to rely on JJ Watt and Markus Golden to help fill that gap.
Simply put, the Cardinals will have a very difficult time trying to get the victory this time.
The truth is that the Cards are lacking defensively, and they just can’t make up for losing Jones.
And, if the Chiefs can give Mahomes very strong protection, he will likely smash the rival defense.
