Arizona at Buffalo
Sunday 10/31 01:00 PM Eastern
1 unit on Arizona +160 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.6) RESULT: loss
2 units on Arizona +3 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82) RESULT: loss
Arizona is 2-4. Why are they so upbeat? They've actually got a lot to be excited about. They pulled off a pretty big upset last week. Emitt Smith is playing like his old self. They've got a winner for a head coach. And, Anquan Boldin is back to complement Larry Fitzgerald, creating one of the best young receiving tandems in the league. Yes, the sun is shining in Arizona. And now they get to play one of the league's worst teams. I know - the Cards are 0-3 on the road this season but all three losses were close (two by 3 points and one by a touchdown). Buffalo has won one game - against the Dolphins. Need I say more? They should not be favored here. They are just plain crappy on offense - ranked 26th in the league. Drew Bledsoe is a sitting duck. And, the Bills are just one of those teams who seem to have no identity, no momentum and no plan. I like Arizona to win this one. Bet 110 to win 100 on Arizona +3 and 50 to 80 on them straight-up.
