Can the Cardinals Take Over the Lead in the NFC West?

This is going to be a closer game than many people think tonight. Arizona has been on a bad streak where they’ve lost their last three games including a 21-14 road loss to the Vikings. The 49ers got back on the right track with a 13-6 win over Seattle at home.

After going 2-1 at home the L3 weeks the 49ers take it on the road tonight. The 49ers have gone 2-1 on the road with their wins coming against the Packers (30-22) and Jets (34-0). The lone road loss for SF this season was against the Vikings (24-13).

On the road this year the 49ers have put up solid numbers. The team has averaged 25.7 PPG, allowed 15.3 PPG and gained a total of 345.3 YPG on average away from Candlestick. The reason I think Arizona keeps it close is because they’re good on defense.

The Vikings beat the 49ers in week 3 because they were able to shutdown Frank Gore. Gore was held to 63 yards and he had a fumble in the game as well. Alex Smith was only able to throw for 204 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT as well in that week 3 road game.

If the Cardinals can come out at home tonight and shutdown Gore they may win the game. The Cardinals haven’t been good at stopping the run, as they rank 21st in the league (120.9 RYPG). They allow an average 4.1 yards per rush at home as well, but they know how important this game is and I expect them to shutdown the 49ers and possibly pull off the upset. However, I recommend betting the point spread.

Arizona Cardinals vs. San Francisco 49ers Predictions

Point Spread: Bet on Arizona Cardinals +7 (-105) @ Bovada

Arizona needs this win to keep their season going. After losing their last 3 games they need a win badly and now that the spread is up to +7 I’m betting them now. We won’t get a better spread tonight and I expect a big game from the Cardinals defense.

Over/Under: Bet on the Under 38.5 (-110) @ BetOnline

The game total is low in this game, but I’m picking the under 38.5 points. Arizona isn’t going to score much, so to remain in this game they need to force Alex Smith to win the game and not Gore. I expect a low scoring game that ends 17-14 or in that range.
