This week’s Thursday Night Football matchup pairs two teams that are off to surprisingly not-that-awful starts, with the shockingly undefeated Arizona Cardinals visiting the almost-as-shockingly .500 St. Louis Rams. Will Kevin Kolb and the Cardinals lose their first game, or keep their flukish run alive in the heart of the Midwest?

Last week, the Cardinals needed overtime to beat the visiting Miami Dolphins and failed to cover as four-point favorites.  That dropped Arizona to 3-1 Against the Spread this year. This will be only Zona’s second home game of the year and their first as favorites; the Cardinals won their first road game 20-18 in New England as 13-point underdogs.  Going a little further back, Arizona has not been a good road team at all, they had lost 13 of their last 15 road contests before the big upset against the Patriots.

The Rams were 2.5-point home underdogs last week and improved to 2-2 overall and 3-1 Against the Spread with a 19-13 win over the Seattle Seahawks. At home this season, St. Louis is 2-0 straight up and against the spread.

The Cardinals won both meetings with the Rams last year, and have won ten of their last 11 games against St. Louis. Arizona has also won five straight in St. Louis and covered the spread in three of those five road wins. The last Cardinals-Rams game went Over, but that snapped a streak of seven straight Arizona-St. Louis games that went Under.

Arizona’s overtime win over Miami last week was the first time this season a Cardinals game went Over.  The last two Rams game have went Under, but their first two games this season went Over.

If I were a gambling man, I’d take the Cardinals and the Under.
