Eagles at Cardinals Betting Preview
Now it’s time for our Eagles at Cardinals Betting preview.
The Eagles are flying to Arizona to face the Cardinals in what promises to be a fierce battle of birds in the desert.
This is going to be a great game between a quarterback that is already in the MVP conversations in Jalen Hurts and Kyler Murray, one of the top-paid quarterbacks in the league.
Philly is the only team after four weeks of action that remains undefeated. And this is a huge feat for the Eagles as this is the first time since the 2004 season, when they managed to start 7-0.
The Cards acquired a couple of difficult victories over the Raiders and the Panthers.
And despite the suspension of DeAndre Hopkins, the receiving area of the team has been in great shape as Arizona managed to sign Marquise Brown during the offseason.
But the big questions for the Cardinals and their performance are around their defensive line.
Things To Watch For
AJ Brown was a phenomenal addition by the Eagles, and he seems to be on his way to acquiring 1700 yards in what is his debut NFL season.
But the main star of the team is, doubtlessly, Jalen Hurts, who is in his third year of professional action.
These are the numbers for Hurts so far this season:
- 1,100+ passing yards
- 205 rushing yards
- 4 touchdown passes
- 4 rushing touchdowns
In fact, Hurts already improved his 2021 percent completion rate from 61.3 to 66.7, and he also leads the league in yards per pass attempt (9.1)
Everybody definitely agrees with the fact that Hurts is ready to demolish the figures of his first two seasons in the NFL.
Now Hurts is on his way to a face-off versus one of the worst defensive lines in the league.
The Cards will definitely have problems controlling Hurts’ passing, but they will be more efficient in containing Murray on the ground.
And this is clear after we study the current figures as the Cards’ have allowed rival quarterbacks to amass a low 16 total rushing yards.

Eagles at Cardinals Betting Prediction
Last but not least in this Eagles at Cardinals Betting preview, our prediction for this game:
The Cardinals have a few positive things going on for them, but chances are that they don’t possess the defensive power to slow down Jalen Hurts and the Eagles.
So, with a very deficient defensive line by the Cards versus an offensive led by Hurts, chances are the Eagles will return to Philly with another valuable victory that will allow them to remain the only undefeated team in the league.
