Cardinals vs. Patriots: Point spread and odds

 Our coverage of the point spread and odds of the NFL Week 16 games continue with the match-up Arizona Cardinals vs. New England Patriots. There is hardly more contested division this season than the AFC East, where the New England Patriots (9-5) are battling with the Dolphins and Jets, all sharing the same records, a sentence we've never thought possible just a few months ago, but perfect testament to the current condition of all three teams. Still quite ironic, when just last season the Patriots went through without a loss, while the Dolphins fought hard to avoid 0-12 season. The Arizona Cardinals, on the other side, have already secured NFL playoffs participation, after clinching NFC West division title.

 And with these developments the sports betting website Bookmaker (official) has made the Patriots the ultimate favorite with odds to beat the Cardinals at -335, while Arizona is big underdog with long odds on success at +295. The Arizona Cardinals vs. New England Patriots point spread is currently at -8 points chalk the Pats with the total point expected by the odds maker at 44.5 points. Keep in mind that Arizona is 2-4 against the spread in its last 6 games and New England is 8-15 against the spread in its last 23 games. But the betting trends also show that the Patriots are 2-10 against the spread in their last 12 games at home and the Cardinals are 1-4 against the spread in their last 5 games when playing New England.
