Kyler Murray might’ve gone No. 1 overall in the 2019 draft, but his NFL career is starting with little fanfare — at least according to the betting community.
Not only are the Cards home underdogs against a Lions team that went 6-10 last season, but they’re also the second-least popular bet on the entire slate at the time of writing (23% of tickets, according to our proprietary data).
You’ll find all our coverage of this game below, from our comprehensive betting guide to Sean Koerner’s projected odds and more.
Lions at Cardinals Betting Guide, Picks
Our analysts and experts break down the most important angles of this game.
Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the full thing here.
First Patrick Peterson got suspended for the first six games of the season, then Robert Alford went on IR with a leg injury. That leaves the Cardinals to start two players who have never played an NFL snap — Byron Murphy, the 33rd overall pick of this year’s draft, and Jones, a 2018 undrafted free agent — alongside Tramaine Brock, a 31-year-old journeyman who ranked 80th among corners last season in Pro Football Focus’ coverage grades.
The Lions’ passing game should feast.
