NFL Preseason Football Kansas City Chiefs at Arizona Cardinals Start Time, Odds, Free Pick

The Arizona Cardinals play host to the Kansas City Chiefs tonight in NFL Preseason football action. The game is scheduled for a 9:00 p.m. start time and it will be televised live in both markets. Currently the odds for the game have the Cardinals favored at home by about a field goal to pick up the win.

Carson Palmer returns to the field for the Arizona Cardinals this fall, nine months after having his ACL repaired. When Palmer is healthy with the weapons the Cardinals have offensively, Arizona can be a good football team. Palmer probably won't play tonight and his talented duo of receivers in Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd probably won't see the field either.

Bruce Arians is looking forward to the season, which should come as no surprise to any football fan. Arians has been an excellent coach and certainly has a personality fit for the game.

The Kansas City Chiefs stumbled early last year but won five straight in the middle of the season. Dropping three of their last five kept them out of the post season, but Andy Reid and the Chiefs are looking to build this year again under Alex Smith.

Jamaal Charles is a great back, but don't expect to see him on the field tonight. The Chiefs and Cardinals probably won't have a lot of stars on the field as is accustomed in the opening preseason game, but it will be interesting to see the depth of both programs in this one tonight.

Overall, points will be at a premium tonight in this low-scoring game.

Free Pick: UNDER 36 points

Movie Oakland Raiders: 2015 NFL Free Picks & Betting Odds

Vegas betting expert Steve Fezzik doesn’t expect the bad situation in Oakland to get much better this season. This AFC West team may have some improvements in terms of personnel, but Jack Del Rio is the latest in a carousel of ever-changing mediocre coaches, and Fezzik doesn’t expect he is the guy to turn this team around. He also thinks people are overstating Derek Carr’s abilities at quarterback, as he may do well in the fourth quarter, but his numbers are padded with garbage time performance.
