San Francisco 49ers vs Arizona Cardinals Pick, Prediction, and Odds
Monday Night Football in week 8 of the NFL season features two of the NFC West teams who are battling for the top spot in the division. The San Francisco 49ers are the favorites and have been from the word go to win the division, while the Arizona Cardinals have held their own even with some offensive struggles. The 49ers are currently 5-2 overall while the Cardinals are 4-3, so getting this win at home on Monday night would be huge for the Cardinals. The 49ers on the other hand are looking to get a grip on this division and to push further away from the pack. The NFC West has been tough to figure out, but with this game on Monday night it could potentially clear things up just a bit when all is said and done.
The 49ers are going to do what they always do, which is work the running game with Frank Gore in order to open up some easy passes for Alex Smith. Smith has been solid, but he's had some off games this year. Expect the 49ers defense to get all over the Cardinals offense that has been struggling with injuries at both the quarterback and running back position, leaving them thin on play makers on that side of the ball.

The Cardinals not only lost Ryan Williams, Beanie Wells, and Kevin Kolb, but they originally lost John Skelton in the first place. Skelton is back in as the starter now with Kolb hurt, and this Cardinals offense is trying to find some life. Their defense has done a great job this season keeping things rolling, and they'll need to do it again on Monday night against the 49ers. Kickoff is at 8:40pm EST on Monday night and the game will be played in Arizona.

The Cardinals are still getting seven points on their home field, which shows how much is expected out of the 49ers in this game. I don't want to see this line get any higher than seven, but I do think that the 49ers are a safe pick to win the game. I could see it being between a touchdown or two, and with that being said I'm going with the Niners'. The biggest reason for this is mainly because it'll be a strong defense against a strong defense, but overall the 49ers offense is simply better than the Cardinals' right now. Expect Frank Gore to lead the way for the 49ers in a ten point win.
