2010 NFL Week 9 Picks - Cardinals vs Vikings NFL Odds & Vegas NFL Betting Preview: Two NFC playoff teams from a year ago that are headed in opposite directions will meet in a 2010 NFL week 9 picks contest, as the Arizona Cardinals (3-4) versus the Minnesota Vikings (2-5) in Minneapolis. Vegas NFL odds has placed the Vikings as -7½(-110) point NFL odds favorite at home.
The Cardinals have lost two straight NFL picks contests after a surprising win against the New Orleans Saints and are struggling at the bottom of the league in most major offensive and defensive categories. Arizona goes back to Derek Anderson at quarterback after rookie Max Hall struggled, throwing only 1 touchdown pass against 5 INTs. Larry Fitzgerald is still an elite receiver but injuries have decimated the receiving corps though help came last week as Steve Breaston returned from injury and had a big game. Defensively this NFL betting odds season, the Cardinals have been getting gouged on a rush defense and have been given-up big plays in the passing game too.
In Minnesota this NFL predictions season, a season of promise has disintegrated into disappointment. Brett Favre has been beaten and banged-up but should play on once again in Sunday's NFL odds contest, though whether that is good or bad news is debatable. Favre has been mainly ineffective, with 7 TDs against 11 INTs, and, with the jettison of Randy Moss, an injury to leading receiver Percy Harvin, and the continued absence of Sydney Rice, the future is not bright either. Running back Adrian Peterson, though, is having a great 2010 NFl picks season with 776 yards rushing and 6 TDs. He should have a field day against the Cards pathetic run defense and the Vikings defense is still solid enough to get the NFL picks victory against this opponent.
Both of these teams are heading in the wrong direction this NFL picks season but someone has to win. Look for a close, low-scoring affair, with the Cards beating the Vegas spread, but the Vikings slipping through to win. Could be an ugly NFL week 9 picks match-up.
