Selected by FOX Sports Betting Analyst Jeff Schwartz:

Two disappointing teams face off in the desert.

The Rams 1-1, but had to fend off a feisty Falcons side 31-10 early in the fourth inning, yet drove to take the lead in the final two minutes before losing 31-25.

Arizona was smoked by the Chiefs in Week 1 and needed a historic comeback in overtime to win over the Raiders after heading into the break 20-0.

Two weeks later, the Cardinal ranked 28th and 29th, respectively, in terms of team efficiency, with the Cardinal’s heavyweight with a defense ranked 30th, and the Rams ranked 32nd from the special teams.

When two teams look equal on paper, I get the points, especially when I get the three plus the hook. There is some concern with this bet because the Rams’ Sean McVeigh has dominated the Cardinals, leading 10-1 in a row.

However, this number for the Cardinals is too exciting to bet on.

picking or picking: Arizona (+3.5 in FOX Bet) to lose by as little as 3.5 points (or win directly)
