Murray is expected to be activated from the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list, making way for the Cardinals’ star quarterback to make his first start since tearing his ACL on December 12 against the New England Patriots.
Arizona is a short underdog Sunday against 4-5 Atlanta, and both teams hope to end losing streaks. The Falcons are hoping to end a two-game losing streak, while Arizona has dropped six straight and is 1-8 on the season.
Join me as I take a closer look at each team and offer my best bet, along with a terrific promotion you can use to build your bankroll when I preview the Falcons and Cardinals on Sunday, November 12.

Falcons vs. Cardinals Best Bet
Murray was one of the best young signal-callers in the league before tearing his ACL. The Cardinals’ offense has sputtered during his absence, and he will be a sight for sore Arizona fans’ eyes.
Atlanta isn’t a good road team and is 1-2 from the visitors sidelines. They don’t cover the spread either and have an identical 1-2-0 ATS mark as the away side.
That’s odd because Atlanta is top 15 in total offense yards, top 10 in defensive yards allowed, and the Falcons are 4-5?
The Falcons have their share of quarterback issues but seem to have settled on Taylor Heinicke under center. Despite the QB woes, Atlanta has outproduced their scoring average, and the team has scored 51 points over their last two contests.
Atlanta has turnover issues, and those turnovers usually hurt them. They average 1.8 turnovers per contest, and their defense has one takeaway per game. That negative turnover differential is a bad thing and, especially so on the road.
The Cardinals offense hasn’t been any better. Two different quarterbacks have started this season, and neither was consistent enough to do any real damage to opposing defenses. That might change with Murray under center, but we shouldn’t expect a 300-yard passing game with 40-50 rushing yards as he has done in the past.
Arizona is a +1.5 point home underdog with a 1-3 home record but is 3-1-0 ATS at State Farm Stadium. Rather than take the points, we will take the Cardinals ML (+105) at Caesars, where you can use your bonus on a +EV bet.
My Best Bet: Arizona +105 Caesars Sportsbook
