The Cards have the roster to do some damage. They topped the NFC West in 2015 despite the Seattle Seahawks going 10-6 across their 16-game regular season. Arizona managed a winning record of 13-3, including seven out of eight victories on the road, good for second-best across in the entire NFL. The Cards dominated what many pundits saw as a two-team conference and will need to do so again after the Seahawks also strengthened their roster. So far, Arizona have brought in Robert Nkemdiche via the NFL draft. Nkemdiche is a very highly rated defensive end, with ESPN calling him the “Southeast’s best prospect since the early 1980’s”. High praise indeed, and he’ll be a boost to a pass rush which needs a bit of sharpening.
Can they finally make an impression in the playoffs? Last postseason saw them win the divisional playoff game against the Green Bay Packers 26-20 in overtime, giving quarterback Carson Palmer his first career playoff win. But The Cards lost the NFC Championship at the Carolina Panthers and failed to make Super Bowl after being blown apart 49-15, committing seven turnovers in the devastating defeat, the worst in the postseason since 1978.

How To Win At Arizona Cardinals Betting
If 2015/16 was a regular season of glory, then those hopes and dreams of following local dominance with Super Bowl success were simply destroyed in one game when the Carolina Panthers demolished the defense of The Cards in a stunning 49-15 defeat.
So can the Cards win the NFC West again and give themselves a chance for revenge against the Panthers? They certainly have the game to trouble any team, and not just in the NFC West. With the addition of Robert Nkemdiche, upon whom high hopes are pinned, this could be a really exciting season for The Cards, and their odds of +140 (second favorites behind Seattle Seahawks) to win their conference seem like good value.
They have a great blend of youth and experience with runners constantly latching onto the passes of seasoned quarterback Carson Palmer all last year. Check out some of The Cards’ highlights from a great season:
If 2015/16 could be improved, then it is in the pass rush statistics, where Arizona lacks the pace and power of other teams. However, a year of added experience to the younger members of their roster will surely help.
In short, we like the Arizona Cardinals’ chances for NFC West glory in 2016/2017. The margins between them and Seahawks are so close there’s nothing really to choose. Bet on the Cards at +140 to top the table instead of -135 for the Seahawks. Those odds present the best value right.
When it comes to the Super Bowl itself, The Cards may well be a great outside tip for glory. Only the Carolina Panthers had a better regular season than The Cards in 2015/2016, so Arizona were perhaps unlucky to go out to such competent rivals in the manner they did.
There’s no way the Cards should only be sixth favorites, at +1400, to win the biggest prize in American Football. If they move ahead of The Seahawks in NFC West by any distance, you’d expect those odds to drop dramatically, so invest now if you’re a believer.
