Week 12 is here, and with four games taking place between Thursday and Friday, two of the four NFL West teams have already played. That leaves us half as many players and just one game to choose from for our division player props on Sunday but 100% of the NFL betting potential.
With the Arizona Cardinals and Los Angeles Rams left to take the field, we have talented offenses to pick from, so let’s get into it.
Rams: Roll with Cooper Kupp/Puka Nacua
The Rams are an entirely different team with WR Cooper Kupp on the field. He makes everyone around him better, Plain and simple.
Against Arizona, Kupp and rookie Puka Nacua will face a team that has given up 17 touchdowns in 2023 and sees opponents complete passes at nearly a 70% rate. Matthew Stafford should have a field day throwing the ball around against the Cardinals,
We love props on both wideouts and think they can have huge games in the NFC West matchup,
NFL Prediction: Cooper Kupp 69+ yards (-107), Puka Nacua +60 (-132)
Cardinals: Kyler Murray
It’s hard to predict exactly what to expect from Kyler Murray for the remainder of the season regarding the passing game. He’s looked great at times and rusty at others, leaving his potential up in the air for 2023.

But, while he’s been on and off in the passing game, Murray is running like his ACL tear never happened, and that is where our focus will be for our Week 12 best NFL prop bets.
Murray ran for a respectable 33 yards on his return to action when the Cardinals and Falcons met in Week 10. Then, last week, he looked even better with 51 yards on seven carries and scored for the second week in a row.
The Cardinals come up against the Rams on Sunday, a team that ranks 21st in opponent rushing yards per game (117.3) and the 17th most yards per rush (4.1). If Murray can get going early, I see no reason he can’t cover this modest projection.
NFL Prediction: Kyler Murray Over 36½ Rushing Yards (-113)
Questions of the Day
Among the NFC West quarterbacks, who holds the strongest probability of leading the conference in passing yards?
