Monday, 8:35 pm Eastern – ESPN
SBG Global Opening Line: Cardinals – 11 , Total 49
The NFC West takes the spotlight on Monday Night Football this week as the Arizona Cardinals host the San Francisco 49ers. The Cardinals have done their part this season going 5-3 but the 49ers have not, going 2-6. The Cardinals are the only team in the NFC West with a winning record and they are heavily favored on Monday to notch another victory. SBG Global reports that early NFL betting has the public taking Cardinals at Home.
The Cardinals have an explosive offense led by quarterback Kurt Warner and a plethora of weapons including Anquan Boldin, Larry Fitzergald and rookie running back Tim Hightower. “We’re excited about where we are as a team,” head coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “We realize that we have a chance. But we also understand that last year at this time there were teams that were 6-2 that didn’t even sniff the playoffs. I think taking that approach is going to keep us grounded. … We’ve got only half the season behind us.”
The 49ers have struggled all season but at least they are entertaining again thanks to interim head coach Mike Singletary. He has made it clear to his team that things must change. One of his first changes was to bench tight end Vernon Davis and he will make another change this week starting Shaun Hill at quarterback. The 49ers will have to score on Monday to have a chance since the Cardinals are leading the NFL in scoring at 29.3 points per game.
