Week 8 of the 2022 NFL season includes an NFC clash when the Arizona Cardinals pay a visit to the Minnesota Vikings. The Cardinals a riding high after securing a 42-34 win against the New Orleans Saints last week, highlighted by DeAndre Hopkins catching 10-of-14 targets for 103 receiving yards in his return from suspension.

Meanwhile, the Vikings are well-rested after having their bye in Week 7. Before the break, Minnesota had rattled off four straight wins, with its most recent being a 24-16 victory against the Miami Dolphins. Only time will tell if Mike McDaniel's squad can pick up from where they left off.

Cardinals vs Vikings Prediction & Pick

Even though the Cardinals won last, they still have a lot to prove. After all, they surrendered 34 points to the Saints — one of the worst team's in the league — and lost to the lowly Seattle Seahawks one week before that.

The Vikings, on the other hand, have a lot more momentum due to their four-game winning streak. Quarterback Kurt Cousins and his pass-catching room should be able to find even more success against an Arizona defense giving up the seventh-most passing yards (262.3) over the last three weeks.

Furthermore, the Cardinals have also lost each of their last 10 road games against the Vikings. Considering how Arizona was kept to 17 or fewer points in six of those games, this is clearly Minnesota's game to lose.

Final Score Prediction: Vikings: 34 | Cardinals: 28

Cardinals vs Vikings Best Bet

After the Cardinals' awful defensive display last week, I could see this game turning into a high-scoring affair. The Dolphins are averaging 27.3 points over their last four games while Arizona just scored 42 points last week and should score more often with Hopkins back.

Even with the Cardinals' recent struggles at U.S. Bank Stadium, expect a lot of points between them and the Vikings.

Bet: Over 48.5 Points (-112)
