Can The Arizona Cardinals Win Super Bowl 53? Probably not. However, here are their Super Bowl 53 odds. Odds to win Super Bowl 80-1.
The Arizona Cardinals were the last team to fill their head coaching vacancy, hiring Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks. The front office chose to go with a defensive-minded head coach despite the questions on the offense and it’s a bold but solid choice. Wilks plays to the strengths of the Cardinals right now and it’s on that side of the ball.
The 2017 season marked a disappointing end to Bruce Arians’ tenure and was one filled with devastating injuries to offensive stars like Carson Palmer and David Johnson. Even with the struggles of an 8-8 season, the defense was a top-15 unit against the run and the pass under the leadership of coordinator James Bettcher. It’s a talented group led by the veteran talents of Chandler Jones and Patrick Peterson while also including young bucks like Hassan Reddick and Budda Baker.
Super Bowl 53 Odds
Yes, there are questions on the offensive side of the ball but with David Johnson returning from injury and Larry Fitzgerald poised to make one final run, the Cardinals now have a new quarterback under center with Sam Bradford. But will he stay healthy?
Wilks led a solid defensive unit with the Panthers this season and defensive coordinators have had plenty of success as head coaches. A strong defense is still very much a part of a championship formula and that will continue even with Bettcher’s departure. That held true with the majority of the teams that made the playoffs. With the NFC West getting tougher everyday, it seems like a lost chance for the Cardinals. However, with a new quarterback under center, the Arizona Cardinals could finally find some life in their offense especially with an All-Pro running back. Can the Cardinals finally put the pieces together in the upcoming season? It is a long shot but they have reached the glory land before.
The Arizona Cardinals still have much work to do.
