Arizona Cardinals Analysis:
The Cardinals got off to a good start in their last game and were able to hold off the Dallas Cowboys in the second half and picked up the win. They will try to pick up another win when they play on Friday.

The Cardinals also did a good job moving the ball on the ground, finishing with 168 yards and one touchdown on 31 carries. New Chiefs Super Bowl 22 odds have been posted. Streveler led the team with 55 yards, while Eno Benjamin finished with 50 yards and one touchdown.
Arizona did a good job defensively, giving up 16 points in the win. They will need to keep playing good defense if they want to win this game.
Odds and Prediction:
The Chiefs are favored to win this game by 2.5 points. The over/under on total points scored is 41.
The Chiefs did a good job keeping the 49ers out of the endzone in their first game, but they gave up a lot of yards. They are facing a Cardinals team that moved the ball well, especially on the ground, and will have a hard time slowing them down, so go with the Cardinals +2.5 and the under in this game.
