Denver at Arizona
Thursday 08/30 10:00 PM Eastern
1 unit on Denver +1.5 (-110) (risk 1 to return 1.91) RESULT: WIN
Arizona is 3-0 in the preseason, but the Cardinals still haven't faced an opponent's starting quarterback. The Cardinals cruised past Dallas 27-3 on Sunday but the Cowboys were missing most of their skill players on offense and much of their starting offensive line. Sam Bradford was 1-of-4 for six yards in two series and Mike Glennon finished 8-of-10 for 35 yards and Chad Kanoff went 4-of-10 for 27 yards for Arizona. Denver comes off a 29-17 win at Washington as Case Keenum finished 12-of-18 for 148 yards and Chad Kelly went 7-of-11 for 73 yards. The Broncos gained 146 yards on the ground on 4.9 yards per carry. Denver still has several roster spots open, including third string quarterback Paxton Lynch, who is trying to hold onto his job and due to a lot of rookie talent there are a number of veterans who have motivation to show up and play well. Denver won all four preseason games in 2017, including a 30-2 blowout over the Cardinals in Week 4. Take the Broncos.
