Now that Week 18 of the 2021 NFL season is in the books, the football world's attention has turned to Super Wild Card Weekend. One of the six matchups slated to go down is an NFC West clash between the Arizona Cardinals and Los Angeles Rams.

While the playoffs can sometimes be unpredictable, FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Rams as the slight favorite in this NFC Wild Card matchup.

Cardinals vs Rams Odds

The Rams are listed as 4-point home favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Los Angeles has -112 odds to cover the spread, while Arizona is -108 to do the same.

After starting the 2021 season with a 7-0 record, the Cardinals went 4-6 in their remaining games — including a 1-4 in their last five. Nevertheless, this is their first playoff appearance since 2015, so only time will tell if this team can turn things around on the biggest of stages.

Meanwhile, the Rams have been one of the best teams throughout the season, boasting three different win streaks of at least three games. They advanced all the way to the Divisional Round last postseason, so it'll be interesting to see if they can make it further.

The Cardinals and Rams each scored a win over the other this season. Arizona won the first meeting, 37-20, in Week 4 before Los Angeles got its win back with a 30-23 victory in Week 14.

The Rams currently have +950 odds (6th) to win Super Bowl LVI, while the Cardinals sit at +2100 (T-9th), according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
