Saints vs Cardinals TNF Prop Bets Tonight

1. Kyler Murray - Rushing Yards: Over Over 33.5 (-113)

The Cardinals failed to score a single touchdown against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 6 and the constant pressure on quarterback Kyler Murray was a big reason why. He was sacked a season-high six times, but used his legs to rush for 100 yards on 10 carries. It's possible he faces a similar situation on Thursday night considering the Saints blitz on nearly 25% of their defensive snaps. Arizona could be without three of its starting offensive linemen and won't have veteran running back Darrel Williams to help in pass protection. Murray is going to have to keep plays alive outside of the pocket and is facing a New Orleans defense that has allowed the 12th-most rushing yards to opposing QBs.

2. Zach Ertz - Receiving Yards: Under 45.5 (-113)

There's no denying that Zach Ertz has developed into one of Murray's favorite targets early on this season. However, he draws a horrible matchup in Week 7. The Saints have allowed the sixth-fewest yards to opposing tight ends (177) as well as just 8.9 yards per reception. Only one TE (Noah Fant) has logged at least 46 yards against New Orleans this year and that effort was aided by a rare 32-yard catch. Wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is set to make his 2022 debut on Thursday night after averaging 6.4 targets per game in 2021. Seeing him cut into Ertz's workload a bit wouldn't be too surprising, either.

3. Anytime Touchdown Scorer: Alvin Kamara (+115)

Week 14 of the 2021 NFL season was the last time running back Alvin Kamara got into the end zone. It's been far too long between scores for a running back that sees the kind of volume he sees. Kamara has racked up a whopping 54 touches over the last two weeks, which includes a team-high 9 red zone touches. It seems like only a matter of time before he is able to capitalize on his offensive role, especially without wide receivers Michael Thomas or Jarvis Landry healthy enough to play. Keep in mind the Cardinals have given up a touchdown to an opposing RB in four of their six games this season.
