The Arizona Cardinals and the New Orleans Saints will battle it out in the Superdome today in the NFC Divisional Playoffs. The Arizona Cardinals won their NFC West division but were seeded 4th, putting them in a Wild Card game last weekend. The Cardinals were involved in a shootout with the Green Bay Packers in which they won 51-45 in overtime (highest scoring NFL playoff game). The New Orleans Saints were seeded 1st in the NFC with their 13-3 record, giving them a bye and home field advantage throughout. The Saints were on there way to a perfect record going 13-0 through their first 13 games, until the Dallas Cowboys stopped the streak in Week 15 in New Orleans. The Saints then went on to lose their next two games to finish the season with 3 losses. The Cardinals and Saints haven’t faced each other this season, and the last time they played was in Week 15 of the 2007 season where the saints won 31-24. The Cardinals will be without WR Anquan Boldin, while the Saints aren’t missing any key players.

Cardinals vs Saints Predictions:
Final Score Prediction – Saints 33 Cardinals 30
Spread Prediction – Take the CARDINALS to beat the spread here at -110 odds. The Cardinals have been great the past two years in the playoffs, going 5-0 against the spread. The defense worked hard in practice this week to make up for their embarrassing performance last week. I don’t know how much the Cardinals will be able to stop Drew Brees, but look for Kurt Warner and the offense to match their numbers. New Orleans wins a close game, take the Cardinals with the points on the spread.
Over Under Prediction – Bet the OVER 56.5 total points. Everyone knew this game total was going to bet set high, and even at a very high 56.5 total I am liking the over. The over is 5-1 in the Cardinals last 6 playoff games, and 3-0-1 in the Saints last 4 playoff games. If last week was any indication of how the Cardinals will play in these playoffs I expect another shootout game. Brees and Warner both have good days and the total will go OVER the number.
