Thursday Night Football Week 9: 49ers Vs. Cardinals

TNF Cardinals vs 49ers

This upcoming Thursday, we will see the San Francisco 49ers take on the Arizona Cardinals at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Phoenix, Arizona. So far this season, we have seen some teams excel, and several other teams fall below the .500 mark.  

As week nine symbolizes for many the halfway point through the 2019 NFL season, we are starting to see what teams are likely to make the playoffs and which teams are not. This matchup could be a deciding factor in which direction the Arizona Cardinals season will go. 

The 49ers seem to be playoff-bound, and with just a few more wins, they could clinch before anyone else in the NFC West. The 49ers current odds to win the Super Bowl sit at (+800), while the Cardinals are at (20000+). While the Patriots and the 49ers are the only two undefeated teams left, there has been some concern giving that both teams haven’t played any teams with winning records. 

Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals are a young team with a rookie quarterback and plenty of future potential. Kyler Murry (QB) has shown signs of greatness, but so far, this season has not gone according to plan. The Cardinals are going into this matchup 3-4-1 after losing to the Saints this past weekend. Before their loss to the Saints, they were on a three-game win streak where they beat the Falcons, Bengals, and Giants.  

San Francisco 49ers

Jimmy Garoppolo and the 49ers are back according to headlines spread over the internet. There is no doubt that the 49ers have played well up to this point, but their schedule has been favorable. 

So far, the 49ers are 7-0, but their only win over a team with a winning record came last weekend against the Panthers (4-3). In that contest, the 49ers routed Carolina with the finals score of 51-13. Even though they are one of the two remaining unbeaten teams, their schedule gets significantly harder after their matchup against the Cardinals.  

Betting Odds

Most online sportsbooks that feature NFL betting odds will have the 49ers favored heavily, giving the way the team has played compared to what the Cardinals have done up until this point in the season. Betting on the 49ers to win would be a safe bet, but anything can happen on Thursday night. The 49ers are loaded and should easily walk away with the win. 

Below are the game lines for this Thursday night’s matchup. It is safe to say that most bettors will be putting their money down on the 49ers, but if the Cardinals could somehow pull off an upset, the few that took their line will walk away with a huge smile on their face. 

Team | Spread | Win | Total

49ers: -10 (-105) | -420 | O44 (-115)
Cardinals: +10 (-115) | +310 | U44 (-105)
