Cardinals vs. Titans 2013 odds: Arizona slight road favorite

Arizona looks to keep its playoff hopes against a Titans team playing out the string.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals are very much alive for a playoff berth, but to keep that dream strong they must beat the Tennessee Titans on the road this Sunday at LP Field.

Arizona is given a good chance to do so by the oddsmakers, who have them favored by 2.5 points, per The over/under is set at 42.

The Cardinals come into the contest at 8-5 and one game out of an NFC Wild Card spot. Their best hope is to win the final three regular season games and hope for a Carolina Panthers loss along the way. The problem is Arizona not only faces a respectable Titans team, but also the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers.

Tennessee had any postseason hopes shattered last weekend while giving up 51 points to the Denver Broncos in defeat. The Titans, at 5-8, are mathematically alive but would need to win out and have both the Miami Dolphins and Baltimore Ravens lose all their remaining games.
