Cardinals vs Eagles Prediction

Arizona’s secondary did a good job limiting Chicago’s passing game in their previous game. Despite being 10.5-point underdogs at away, I’m confident in their ability to cover against Philadelphia.

I’m selecting the under as my pick, given the over/under line of 48. Heading into this matchup, games featuring Arizona have had an average combined score of 45.2 points, and I believe this game will stay under 48.
