After going 8-8 in 2020 and nearly sneaking into the NFL playoffs, the Arizona Cardinals are looking for a much better turnaround come 2021. However, will there be a turnaround with such a strict schedule and defense still undergoing transition? Let’s answer all those questions and more with our free Cardinals 2021 win total prediction.
Arizona Cardinals Over / Under 8 wins
With adding another week to the regular season, surely the Cardinals with mastermind Kliff Kingsbury should be able to get at least nine wins to cash bettors who are hopeful for the Cardinals, right? Wrong. It’s a tough pill to swallow, but if you are looking for free NFL advice that will lead to you heading to the sportsbooks to cash out winning wagers, listen up. Residing in the NFC West, there is no such thing as a “free win.” The Cardinals have challenging games week-in and week-out and never have another “bye week .” Arizona was able to add W.R. A.J. Green, RB James Conner, C Rodney Hudson, DE J.J. Watt, CB Malcolm Butler, and K Matt Prater. Still, all of that leadership won’t necessarily lead to wins. It will take some time for this team to gel, and I feel as if they are one year away from really doing some damage in the NFC.
The defense is the main problem with Arizona. With allowing nearly 385 yards per game, any offense could move the ball downfield against the Cardinals. Especially the opposing run game as Arizona allowed over 130 rushing yards per game. They could not control the clock and forced QB Kyler Murray and the offense to act fast. When all cylinders are rolling, this team can easily be a ten-win team; however, hiccups in the 2021 season will happen. Take the Under
