Cardinals are Fade Material in the Desert

A New York Jets (1-4) and Arizona Cardinals (2-3) prime-time matchup is not the most exciting contest, but the clubs will do battle regardless in the Week 6 edition of Monday Night Football.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in three of the Jets' last four games against the Cardinals.
  • The Cardinals are 8-0 SU in their last eight games at home after a loss at home.
  • The Jets are 1-5-1 ATS in their last seven games after an ATS loss.

The Cardinals have been a mess this year, and their struggles at home date back to the 2015 campaign. Arizona is 2-8 ATS in its last 10 appearances in the desert.

New York is going UNDER totals with ease when playing away from the Big Apple. The UNDER is 5-1 in the Jets’ previous six road games.

At the time of writing, the Cards were sitting as 7-point favorites with a total of 46.

Arizona entered the season as legitimate Super Bowl contenders, but they certainly haven’t looked the part so far. The Cards’ high-flying offense has dried up, and losses to the Los Angeles Rams and Buffalo Bills struck a lot of people by surprise.

The health of starting quarterback Carson Palmer is a major issue, as the veteran sat out Week 5’s 33-21 triumph over the San Francisco 49ers with a concussion. Head coach Bruce Arians has announced he’s expecting Palmer to play in the Monday nighter.

The Jets were one of the most surprising teams in the NFL last season and came extremely close to making the playoffs. The postseason is looking like a lofty goal for the J-E-T-S right now, though. Ryan Fitzpatrick has struggled mightily, causing many fans and pundits to call for backup Geno Smith to start. Fitzpatrick will get the nod in this game, but don’t be surprised if he gets pulled if his poor play continues.
