Atlanta Falcons vs. Arizona Cardinals Betting Prediction
The Arizona Cardinals have been among the worst teams in the league all season. While will get Kyler Murray back in Week 10, barring any setbacks, his return won’t be enough to mask all of their other problems. Although the Atlanta Falcons have lost their past two games, they should be able to get back in the win column against a poor opponent. Look for the Falcons to win by at least two points.
