Wagering on the next head coach market may be more of a novelty with lower betting limits, but it’s one of the more fascinating angles to cap. 

A trio, in particular, stands out for next head coach of the Arizona Cardinals: Sean Payton, Vance Joseph and DeMeco Ryans.

They’re the only three candidates shorter than +1000 to succeed Kliff Kingsbury, who was a bad bet against the spread (41-39-3, 51.3%) over four seasons in the desert.

The Cardinals were one of the most underwhelming franchises in 2022, winning only four games amid an injury-riddled campaign.

Who’s pairing up with Kyler Murray in an effort to turn around this NFC West franchise?

Sean Payton Odds for Cardinals Head Coach: +300

Payton’s littered across various teams’ odds boards to take a head coaching job next fall.

He’s also a strong link to the Broncos, being priced as the second-shortest candidate behind Dan Quinn.

Payton spent two separate stints with the New Orleans Saints, leading the franchise to a Super Bowl after the 2009 regular season.

The 59-year-old took New Orleans to the playoffs every year from 2017-20. He stepped down following the 2021 campaign in which the Saints went 9-8 with a second-place finish in the NFC South.

Vance Joseph Odds for Cardinals Head Coach: +350

Joseph was the head man in Denver from 2017-18. His resume’s equipped with a plethora of stints as defensive coordinator.

He’s been in the aforementioned role with Arizona since 2019 and is coming off a year in which the Cards ranked second-to-last in points allowed per game (26.4).

Joseph’s history includes stops with the 49ers. But he may not be the strongest candidate linked to the Cardinals’ head-coaching gig with San Francisco ties.

DeMeco Ryans Odds for Cardinals Head Coach: +500

That’d be DeMeco Ryans, who’s morphed into one of the hottest head-coaching commodities in the NFL.

Ryans has been putting on a clinic as the 49ers’ defensive coordinator. They lead the league in scoring against (16.3) and are tied for third in yards per play allowed (5.0) entering the postseason.
