The Ken Whisenhunt era in Arizona was a good one as he guided the franchise to the Super Bowl in February of 2009; however, 5-11 campaigns in 2010 and last year spelled doom for the coach and his staff. The Cardinals axed Whisenhunt at the conclusion of last season and hired Bruce Arians in his stead. Arizona also made some big personnel changes as they dumped quarterbacks Kevin Kolb and John Skelton and traded for Carson Palmer. Unfortunately for Cardinals fans, the odds makers at 5Dimes do not anticipate the moves paying dividends for the team this season. According to the offshore bookmaker's latest 2014 Super Bowl Odds, Arizona is a championship long shot, drawing a +14000 money line ($100 wins $14000) to win the Lombardi Trophy next year. The Cardinals, who are favored to win fewer than 5.5 games at -120 odds, are also the least favored team to win the NFC Championship and NFC West at +6500 and +2500 odds, respectively.
Cantor Gaming of Las Vegas is not high on Arians' Cardinals either. The book making giant released NFL game lines for weeks one through 16 and it does not have Arizona favored in a single game. The Cardinals are, however, lined as an against the spread Pick'em in meetings with the Jaguars, Colts, and Rams.
