The Arizona Cardinals (8-5) will head to Ford Field to take on the Detroit Lions (2-11) in this Sunday match up scheduled for 1:00pm ET. The Cardinals are coming off a brutal performance Monday night where they had seven turnovers in a 24-9 loss at San Francisco. The status of star receiver Larry Fitzgerald is still unknown for Sunday, after he suffered a bruised bone and a sprained right knee versus the 49ers last week. Kurt Warner and the Cardinals will look to rebound and clinch a playoff spot with a win on Sunday against the Lions. The Lions may be without quarterback Matt Stafford for a second straight week and might have to hand the ball to back up Dante Culpepper, who completed 16 of his 34 passes for 135 yards while getting picked off twice in last weeks loss to the Ravens. The Lions who will miss the playoffs again will try and play the role of spoiler and try to lessen the Cardinals chances of getting back to the Super Bowl. Betting lines, trends and predictions are listed below for this Arizona vs Detroit week 15 match up.

Arizona vs Detroit Betting Predictions:
Final Score – Cardinals 27 @ Lions 13
Spread – Lay it down on the Cardinals to cover the spread this week. Look for the Cardinals to rebound in a big way and get a solid performance from their defense like they did two weeks ago against the Vikings. Previous to last weeks loss, Kurt Warner had won five straight on the road this year, expect a big day from him against this Lions pass defense which ranks dead last in the league, giving up 272.1 yards per game through the air. Bet on the Arizona Cardinals to cover the 12 point spread this week (-110).
Over/Under – I like the total to stay under the 46.5 points. I believe the Cardinals can hold this Lions offense, which put up an average of 16.1 points per game, to a low score in this match up. Look for the Cardinals to jump out to a solid first half lead and then control the rest of the game by handing the ball over to running back Beanie Wells to chew up the clock, making this one stay under the number. Bet on the under in this game (-110).
