Team Outlook and Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST TAKE

The short answer is no he cannot. The team will improve quite a bit and are projected to score at least 1 more TD per game vs last year, but that is not enough to win more than 6 games. They are still in a very tough division with two playoff teams (Rams, Seahawks) and the 49ers who expect to be there with Jimmy Garopolo back.

2019 SEASON PROJECTION

The Cardinals are winning more in simulations than they did last season which indicates that they should improve next season. This improvement does not necessarily mean they are going to be good considering the low bar they have to improve on. At 200/1, 0.5% odds-makers they are a longshot to win the Super Bowl. Their Super Bowl chances in simulations stand at 0.1 percent.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP

Their 3 wins in 2018 did not meet expectations. It was -1.8 below what oddsmakers' money line projected. The season went much worse than expected. Home field was not an advantage, at least not in terms of meeting expectations. They were OK on the road. They went 2-6 on the road and were expected to win 1.5. Their 12.5% home win percentage was much worse than expected (42.1%). Anyone who backed the Cardinals in all of their games on the money line would have earned a +156 unit profit at a 100 per game risk. Against the spread, they have lost -180 units risking 110 to win 100 (7-8 ATS). The Cardinals have turned an ATS profit on the road but have lost at home. Below is a recap of all 16 regular games.

They are a very poor scoring team based on points per game and below average in yards per play. They are a very poor scoring defense based on points per game. They are the #21 ranked team based on yards per play allowed and the #22 ranked team based on TD per play allowed.
