Cardinals favored by 4.5 points against the Vikings in Week 2

By Jack White

The Vikings have dug themselves into an 0-1 hole to start 2021, while the Cardinals dismantled a team that was seen as a playoff contender.

So the line in the teams’ Week 2 matchup makes sense. According to Tipico Sportsbook, the Cardinals are 4.5-point favorites at home against the Vikings on Sunday.

In its regular season opener, Arizona had a 38-13 win over Tennessee. Vikings left tackle Rashod Hill should have a very tough matchup with Chandler Jones, a Cardinals edge rusher who is coming off a five-sack game in the opener.

Minnesota was exposed by Cincinnati to fall in overtime by a score of 27-24. The Vikings need to bounce back, but will have to do so against a very good team on paper. The market seems to have accounted for that.
