- The Arizona Cardinals offer +130 odds to go over 3.5 touchdowns on Sunday.
- The Minnesota Vikings ranked in the bottom 10 of the league last year in total touchdowns allowed
ARIZONA – After blasting the Tennessee Titans 38-13, the Arizona Cardinals head back home to host the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
The Cardinals offense looked electric, scoring 5 touchdowns in the first 3 quarters, before taking the foot off the gas in the 4th quarter. Spearheaded by early MVP favorite Kyler Murray (+1000 – 3rd), the Cardinals scored at ease against the porous Tennessee Titans defense.
Legal sports betting sites have set the total touchdown prop for the Cardinals at 3.5 this week at +130 odds, which the Cardinals should have no problem surpassing. With the way the Minnesota Vikings defense performed this past Sunday, bettors would be smart to take advantage of this plus money line.
The Minnesota Vikings have a bit of a reputation for their strong defense under Mike Zimmer, but they have not lived up to the hype recently. The Vikings gave up 27 points to the Bengals this past Sunday, and allowed an extremely efficient stat line of 20-27 to Joe Burrow.
The Minnesota Vikings ranked in the bottom 10 of the league last year in total touchdowns allowed per game (3.3). It is only one week into the NFL season, but last week’s defensive performance against the Bengals didn’t inspire any confidence that the tides may be turning anytime soon.
Much has been made about the Vikings’ addition of veteran cornerback Breshaun Breeland this past offseason. Joe Burrow did not seem to care, as he targeted Breeland eight times, and pegged him with 107 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns allowed.
When asked about his performance after the game, Breeland told reporters he “wasn’t at his best“. While Patrick Peterson held his own, the No. 2 and 3. corners for the Vikings, were charged with a total of 7 missed tackles.
With a healthy game total of 49.5 point, and a highly questionable secondary for the Vikings, the Arizona Cardinals find themselves in a prime spot to soar over the 3.5 total touchdown prop on Sunday.
