The NFL doesn’t stop! Week 6, which was full of emotions, ended on Monday, but week 7 is already knocking on the door and is ready to start tomorrow.
The opening of Round 7 will take place at the State Farm Stadium, a traditional ground of the state of Arizona. Like the southern state of Louisiana, the match between the Cardinals and Saints must be quite hot.
The meeting will be between two teams with identical statistics of wins and losses: both have won two matches and lost four in these first six matches of the current season.
The visitors, the Saints, are third in the NFC South, while the Cardinals are last in the NFC West, with the same amount of wins as their opponent – which shows that the Cardinals group is a little more competitive.
Let’s check the main information about the teams’ preparation for this confrontation, bringing a detailed analysis of the factors that can generate favoritism for one of the sides.

Why Bet on the Cardinals?
The Cardinals come into this opening match after a streak of two straight losses. The Arizona team’s last victory was against the Panthers, in which they won 26-16.
This will be another opportunity for the Cardinals to win their first home game this season. The team lost to the Chiefs, Rams, and Eagles in the three times they played in their domains. Yes, they have indeed hosted some of the best teams of the current NFL season. However, it is also true that their performance needs to improve at home if the team still dreams of qualifying in their difficult group.
Kicker Matt Prater is one of the team’s hopes as he has scored 6 field goals in six attempts.
Why Bet on the Saints?
The Saints also didn’t make a good start to the season, but they have some good reasons to believe in the victory over the Cardinals. The New Orleans team is coming off a loss to the Bengals (30-26), but they won the game before this one by beating the Seahawks 39-32.
While the Cardinals have yet to win at home, the Saints made their NFL debut by beating the Falcons as visitors. In addition, the confrontation between the teams favors the Saints. In the last 11 games played between them, they won 7.
With the Carolina Panthers at the bottom of their group, the Saints need to win this game to touch the top finishers and enter the fray for the NFC South group classification.
Final Betting Analysis: Cardinals vs. Saints
Although they play on their territory, the Cardinals have yet to win with the support of their stadium crowd. Recent clashes favor the visitors and, in addition, the number of victories and defeats is identical between the teams.
This equilibrium scenario means that the house factor may have little influence in this game. Therefore, the Saints have a good chance of surprising and leaving State Farm Stadium with a positive result. Our guess is for the Saints to win.
