Cardinals vs. Vikings Breakdown and Betting Odds

The 3-4 Arizona Cardinals take on the 5-1 Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, October 30 at 1:00 EST.

The Vikings are 5.5-point favorites, and over/under has been set at 48.

Arizona Cardinals Overview

The Cardinals are coming off a big Week 7 win over the New Orleans Saints by the score of 42-34. Getting wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins back in Week 7 after a 6-game suspension was huge as he had over 100 yards receiving and 1 touchdown in the game. The Cardinals are averaging 22.3 points per game and are ranked 20th in the latest Pro Football Talk Week 8 rankings.

Their closest game of the season was in Week 5 against the Philadelphia Eagles when they lost by a field goal; the final score was 20-17.

Minnesota Vikings Overview

Quarterback Kirk Cousins is having a great 2022 season. He has thrown for over 1,500 yards with 9 touchdowns and 5 interceptions.

The Vikings only loss is to the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles, a game in which Cousins threw 3 interceptions. The Vikings are ranked 6th in Pro Football Talk’s Week 8 power rankings.

Coming off a Week 7 bye, Minnesota should be fresh and ready to score at least their season average of 23.2 points per game.

Free Pick: Minnesota (-5.5)

Just as the Cardinals nearly played the spoiler to the Eagles in Week 5, the Vikings cannot overlook this dangerous Cardinals team. Minnesota is playing too well right now so it is reasonable to expect that the Vikings will cover the spread.
