PHOENIX – The Arizona Cardinals and Los Angeles Rams are set to clash in an NFC West Showdown.

Both teams are coming off of a loss and both are vying for second place in the Division. Luckily for both teams, they are fairly healthy on Sunday.

NFL betting odds are littered across every aspect of this game. But, knowing where the mismatches are due to injury could be the difference between cashing in and placing a faulty bet.

Arizona Cardinals Injuries

One of the biggest causes of concern for the Arizona Cardinals faithful is the fact that two offensive linemen are out. The Rams rank fourth in the league in terms of sacks per game. The Rams themselves average 3.1 sacks per game this season.

Legal sports betting sites have the over/under on the number of QB sacks this game have set it at 4.5. The Over has been given -120 odds and the Under has been given -110.

The Cardinals will also be missing Jalen Thompson again which could leave the backfield susceptible to big plays. Odds for the longest play of the game could be called into question as well.

However, though not listed on the injury report, the health of Kyler Murray’s shoulder is also something to take into consideration. Murray had a full practice on Friday but his impact will be tied into how well his shoulder has healed.

Los Angeles Rams Injuries

The Rams don’t have a glaring hole due to injuries like the Cardinals have. Each of their injuries are scattered across the field. However, the most notable injuries are to WR Trishton Jackson and TE Brycen Hopkins.

This means two things. The first is that it eliminates some of the targets for Rams QB Jared Goff. Betting props for Jared Goff include an Over/Under for yards in the game and touchdowns in the game. It also affects other receivers’ odds for receptions, yards, and touchdown receptions.
