Two teams looking to get back on track in the NFC playoff race meet head-to-head in Week 7 as the New Orleans Saints visit the Arizona Cardinals. The Saints fell to the Cincinnati Bengals by a score of 30-26 in Week 6 despite the fact that they averaged an impressive 6.7 yards per carry on the ground.

Meanwhile, the Cardinals struggled to get anything going on offense on Sunday and it led to a 19-9 defeat at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks. Arizona has now lost three of its last four games and quarterback Kyler Murray has only thrown 6 touchdowns compared to 4 interceptions this season.

The Cardinals enter this contest as a slight home favorite on the moneyline and the spread. This Thursday night clash also features one of the lower totals on the Week 7 slate at 44.5 points.

Saints vs Cardinals Prediction & Pick

Both of these teams enter Week 7 in desperate need of a win. Falling three games under .500 would make the mountain to climb back up that much higher. I'll give the edge to the Cardinals here for one reason and one reason only. Injuries continue to pile up with every week that passes for the Saints.

Quarterbacks Jameis Winston and Andy Dalton are each dealing with back issues. Wide receivers Michael Thomas, Chris Olave and Jarvis Landry will likely not suit up on Thursday night. Pressure will be put on running back Alvin Kamara and utility man Taysom Hill, but their efforts won't be enough.

Final Score Prediction: Saints: 20 | Cardinals: 28

Saints vs Cardinals Best Bet

The Cardinals have lost a ridiculous eight straight home games, which means backing them on the moneyline comes with way too much risk here. Shifting gears to the point total is a logical move to make. These are two defenses that rank outside the top 20 in points allowed per game this season.

The over has hit in six of the last eight matchups between the Saints and Cardinals. It has also hit in four of New Orleans' six games this year. Those six games have combined to see an average of 49.8 total points scored. Look for these offenses to reach the end zone just enough times on Thursday.

Bet: Over 44.5 Points (-115)
