Miami Dolphins at Arizona Cardinals -6.5

There's a simple question here. If you think the Cards win, is it by more than a TD? 17-10, 24-17, 27-20. Cards cover. AND THOSE ARE CLOSE GAMES.

So tell me how this new and improved Cards team is only a 6.5 favorite vs the 1-15 Dolphins from just a year ago. Keep in mind this game is in Arizona a place where the Cards had a winning record last year and covered in 5 out of their 8 games.

Now, a reason possibly for the lower than expected spread is because of their tough game vs the Jets.

Here's a bit of reality here. Jets kicker was hurt. Loss of a FG when they had to go for it on 4th down once and failed. Loss of an extra point. So there's 4 points that could've been added to the Jets. Also, a big play for the Jets getting called back on a holding that brought them into Miami territory. So the game while close on the scoreboard could've been a lot different.

I don't see Pennington having success this week with no true WRs against a decent secondary. I do see James, Warner, and those WRs having success though against a defense that gave up tons of yards to Thomas Jones, and big plays through the air.

To all you betters and bookies out there: Take the Cards
