Since moving from St. Louis to Phoenix in 1988, only the Detroit Lions and Cleveland Browns have a lower win percentage than the Arizona Cardinals. The good news, however, is that they’ve finished .500 or better in 6 of their last 9 seasons, and they have one of the most exciting young quarterbacks in the league in Kyler Murray.
The Cardinals’ division, the NFC West, has been arguably the toughest division in the NFC in the last decade. A team from the NFC West has represented the conference in the Super Bowl in 5 of the last 10 seasons. The Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 49ers, and Seattle Seahawks have all had a Super Bowl appearance in that span, but the Cardinals lone Super Bowl bid came in 2008, in a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Top Sportsbooks to Bet on Cardinals
What Bets Can Be Made on the Cardinals?
Prior to the start of the 2022-23 season, it was slightly more popular to place a futures bet on the Cardinals winning their first Super Bowl. On BetMGM, they entered the season at +3000. They were a team that fizzled out at the end of last season, but still had the pieces in place to make a deep postseason run. They had a borderline top-10 offense and defense, and nothing seemed to be out of their reach as long as Murray was creating magic on the field. Apparently, though, Deandre Hopkins was the only thing holding that offense together.
Other bets you can make on the Cardinals include: making the playoffs (+1300), winning the NFC West (+3000), regular season win total over 6.5 (+125), and if you really believe they’ll turn it around and win out, you can bet on Murray bringing home his first MVP award (+20000).

The Cardinals have made it to one Super Bowl, in 2008, but they lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers and have never won the big game.
It would be hard to argue for anyone other than Larry Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald holds the franchise records for catches, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns, and is second only to Jerry Rice in receptions and receiving yards all time (6th in receiving touchdowns). He was the face of the franchise for a decade and a half, and if the team had pulled off a win in their lone Super Bowl appearance, Fitzgerald’s 7 catches for 127 yards and two touchdowns may have won him the MVP.
