The Arizona Cardinals need a win to keep within distance of the Los Angeles Rams and the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC West. Meanwhile, the New England Patriots must be starting to accept that their run as champions of the AFC East is coming to an end, though that doesn’t mean they’ll just lay their weapons down and make things easy for Kyler Murray and the Cardinals in Foxboro this weekend. Read on for a preview of this game.
Betting Preview for the Arizona Cardinals vs New England Patriots Regular Season Week 12 Game on November 29, 2020
Where: Gillette Stadium, Foxboro
When: Sunday, November 29, 2020, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: FOX
Betting on the Arizona Cardinals (-2.5)
Regular Season Record: 6-4
The Cardinals got shot down by the Seattle Seahawks during a 28-21 road loss in the Thursday Night Football game in Week 11. Kyler Murray nevertheless played well, as he had 269 passing yards and two touchdowns without an interception on 29-of-42 completions. Murray hurt his shoulder early in that game, which likely affected his performance. That said, Murray should be good to go against the Patriots. If he’s indeed healthy, Murray can capitalize on the Patriots ‘defense that got dressed down by the Houston Texans’ passing attack last week, with quarterback Deshaun Watson producing 344 passing yards and two touchdowns without an interception. Arizona is eighth in the NFL with a 68.27 completion percentage and tops with 414.3 total yards per game.
The under is 3-0 in the Cardinals’ last three games.
Betting on the New England Patriots (+2.5)
Regular Season Record: 4-6
For the first time since 2009, the Patriots have picked up six losses after falling prey to the Houston Texans last Sunday, 27-20. Cam Newton passed for 365 yards and a touchdown with zero interceptions on 26-of-40 completions, while Damien Harris rushed 11 times for 43 yards and a touchdown. The Patriots need to generate pressure defensively, especially in the pocket against the Cardinals, who have a mobile quarterback just like Watson. The Patriots did not have a defensive sack in the Texans game, while allowing two for a loss of 16 yards. If the Patriots can’t make Murray uncomfortable in the backfield, they can compensate with their secondary unit that’s mostly responsible why New England is fifth in the NFL with 11 interceptions.
The Patriots, who are allowing 23.8 points per game, are 3-2 against the spread in their last five home games.
The Cardinals win, 24-21.
