Patriots @ Cardinals NFL betting tips & best props – December 12

NFL football tips

While on paper, the NFL’s week 14 Monday Night feature feels like a dud, both teams have a lot to play for and a win in this spot is crucial to either team’s playoff chances. The 4-8 Arizona Cardinals will host the 6-6 New England Patriots in a matchup between two underachieving teams. That all being said, this should be a fun game and we have some betting picks for this tilt.

Patriots @ Cardinals spread pick: Arizona +1.5

In this battle, we are siding with the home underdogs. While the Cardinals have been inconsistent all season, they finally have a healthy offense and their speed will give the Patriots problems. The Pats’ defense has held up all season but they have struggled with mobile QBs and there are few QBs more athletic than Kyler Murray. The Cardinals’ offense should march up the field with ease in this contest and defensively, they should be able to slow down the Pats. While the Cards’ defense is bad, the Pats’ offense has struggled in recent weeks and this is a good matchup for Arizona. This should be a tight contest, but we are taking the home underdogs.

Arizona Cardinals +1.5


Rushing Yards Markets

As we mentioned earlier, the Patriots struggle with mobile QBs. Kyler Murray’s best asset is his legs and he should use them here. Kyler has cleared this number in three of his past five games and he has had over 60 rushing yards in two of those contests. He is capable of covering this over on one run and considering the speed of the Patriots’ defense, this is a great bet. We expect Kyler to showcase his speed and carry the Cards to a crucial win, covering his rushing prop in the process.

Anytime Touchdown Scorer Markets

Hunter Henry is the tight end for the Patriots and he is in line for a big day. The Cardinals have the league’s worst defense guarding tight ends and they simply do not have the personnel to adequately slow down opposing tight ends. Henry only has two touchdowns this season but he has become a bigger part of the offense in recent weeks and if the Pats want to win this game, they will have to use their big tight end. While this is a bit of a longshot, the Cardinals have a long history of struggling against tight ends and +330 for a Henry touchdown is a great bet to capitalize on those struggles.
