Is Kyler Murray the next NFL Superstar? He could be, and the Arizona Cardinals could be sleeper team in NFC.
Kyler Murray justified (and more) the Cardinals taking him with the first pick of the 2019 NFL Draft, throwing for 3,722 yards and 20 touchdowns and running for another 544 yards and four scores. But this league is all about wins and losses, and Murray has Arizona heading in the right direction.
Murray could make the second year jump that fellow QBs Patrick Mahomes (5,097 yards passing, 50 TDs, NFL MVP in 2018) and Lamar Jackson (4,328 yards, 43 TDs, NFL MVP in 2019) made.
Kansas City, of course, won the Super Bowl in February thanks to a fourth quarter comeback from Super Bowl MVP Mahomes, while the Baltimore Ravens under Jackson come into this season as co-favorites to win Super Bowl LV with Kansas City.
Murray has the ability to make that same jump, and could drag the Cardinals to a winning record along with his second season success. He is currently +2000 to win the NFL MVP this season, which might be a reach. But who knows? If he does indeed take the Cardinals to the playoffs, it might be his award to win.
For an added prop bet, look for the Denver Broncos to win more than 7.5 games this year with Drew Lock under center. Denver could make a run at a playoff spot.
