Broncos vs. Cardinals 12/18/22 Prediction and Odds
Both the Broncos’ and Cardinals’ coaches’ jobs are on the line this season, and a win at this point could prove to be an important turning point for both teams. Let’s take a look at how both are shaping up ahead of the upcoming Broncos vs. Cardinals 12/18/22 match.
Broncos vs. Cardinals Preview Games and History

Broncos vs. Cardinals 12/18/22 NFL Betting Tips: The Season So Far
Denver’s season has been nothing short of a disaster so far, which doesn’t bode well for them heading into Broncos vs. Cardinals.
At the moment, it looks very possible that the side could set a new record for being the lowest-scoring team in the franchise’s history. They are currently averaging around 14 points a game, scoring at a rate that hasn’t been seen since the dismal performance of the Browns in 2000.
Russel Wilson at QB has come under especially heavy criticism, with fans disappointed about how far his performances have dropped since his days of ruthless efficiency at Seattle. He’s been at the center of a huge dip not just in the results of the Broncos’ offense but also in the enjoyment they provide to fans. Consistently failing to get the basics right has led Denver to feel frustration more than anything else.
To be fair to the Broncos, though, the defense has mostly played its role as expected and kept the side in games more times than the offense would like to admit.
Still, there’s only so much the defense can do, and people are wondering whether it’s time for new management. Expectations were hardly sky-high at the beginning of the season but the steady decline from the mediocre starting point in week 1 means the Broncos are mainly playing to save face at this point. Don’t expect much from them in
Broncos vs. Cardinals.
Arizona can just never seem to get things over the finish line this season. However tough they think things have been so far though, things are unlikely to improve soon with the Cardinals facing a particularly tough run-in against some top-level opponents.
A playoff spot has seemed attainable for much of the first half of the season, but that aim has slipped into increasingly unlikely territory as the side has struggled to see out games where they should’ve been able to hold out for victory.
The Cardinals are another side where people are asking questions of the coach, and saving the season could also be a case of saving Kliff Kingsbury’s job. The Broncos vs. Cardinals 12/18/22 matchup could be an important turning point.
