We’re back for Week 7 football. The Arizona Cardinals host the Denver Broncos on Thursday Night Football in an inter-conference matchup that does not exactly whet the appetite. The game kicks off at 5:20 p.m. PT on NFL Network, with Joe Buck and Troy Aikman in the booth, and Erin Andrews and Kristina Pink on the sideline. You can also stream the game on Amazon Prime and listen to Hannah Storm and Andrea Kremer as an alternate audio option.
The Broncos are a one-point favorite, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. This was a rather odd line early in the week. Most sportsbooks opened with the Broncos a 1.5 point favorite, but you could find several pick ‘ems, and even some that had the Cardinals as a one-point favorite. The line climbed in some places to Broncos -2, but as kickoff approaches, Denver is roughly a one-point favorite. A majority of money is on the Broncos for the time being.
I’m not taking this game in the SuperContest, but I would probably take the points. It’s a matchup of two bad teams, and if that’s the case, I’ll take the home underdog most every time.
