Updated Aug. 31, 2023 6:34 p.m. ET

With the NFL season set to begin, FOX Sports gambling experts and NFL writers are looking at the Over/Under for every team in the league. Check back daily to see predictions on where your team will finish the regular season!

September's presence, mere days away, and the air turning crisp can only mean one thing … NFL football is back, baby!

Now that sportsbooks have dropped Over/Under win totals for every team in the league, it's time to dive into the fun and look at the numbers from a betting perspective.

Can the Arizona Cardinals eclipse their win total of 4.5?


Here is how our FOX Sports talent sees the Cardinals' season playing out.

Pick via FOX Sports NFC West writer Eric D. Williams: Cardinals Under 4.5 wins

Yes, Arizona seems intently focused on the 2024 NFL Draft and the Caleb Williams sweepstakes. It’s hard to see the Cardinals winning many games with either Joshua Dobbs or Clayton Tune at quarterback. And Kyler Murray will miss at least the first four games as he begins the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, continuing his recovery from ACL knee surgery. 

Defensive-minded head coach Jonathan Gannon could at least make games interesting if the Cardinals punch above their weight, with safety Budda Baker leading them on that side of the football. But it will be an uphill climb for Arizona to not finish with the worst record in the NFL.

Pick via FOX Sports NFL Analyst Geoff Schwartz: Cardinals Under 4.5 wins 

Some team has to be the worst in the NFL, and while it’s not always the team you expect, the Cardinals are making a strong attempt at it. The roster is bad, and it’s on purpose. 

This is how you tank — a new general manager and head coach have purged the roster, including a recent trade of Isaiah Simmons, their first-round pick just three years ago. The Cardinals are without their starting quarterback, Kyler Murray, for at least half the season, and when he comes back, how good will he be? I think there’s a chance he doesn’t see the field all season. 

On defense, the Cardinals are short of game-wreckers up front, and there’s no one offenses will be concerned about.
