FOX Sports Betting Analyst’s Picks Geoff Schwartz:

Two overwhelming teams face each other in the desert.

The Rams are 1-1 but had to fend off a lively Falcons team who were 31-10 down early in the fourth quarter but took a lead in the final two minutes before losing 31-25.

Smoked out by the Chiefs in Week 1, Arizona needed a historic overtime comeback to beat the Raiders after going 20-0 at halftime.

At two weeks, the Cardinals and Rams are ranked 28th and 29th in team efficiency, respectively, with the Cardinals burdened with defense at 30th and the Rams with special teams at 32nd.

When two teams seem equal on paper, I grab the points, especially if I get the three plus the hook. There is some concern with this bet because Sean McVay’s Rams dominated the Cardinals and went straight ahead 10-1.

However, that number for the Cardinals is too juicy not to bet on.

Choose: Arizona (+3.5 on FOX Bet) loses by less than 3.5 points (or wins outright)
