The Arizona Cardinals looked destined for the playoffs last season after a Hail Mary touchdown by DeAndre Hopkins put the team to 6-3 on the season. Arizona ended up going 2-5 down the stretch to ultimately miss the playoffs. QB Kyler Murray will be back after an impressive second season and hope to take the franchise to the playoffs for the first time since 2015-16.

Here, we’ll take a look at the prop bets on the table for Arizona Cardinals RB James Conner on DraftKings Sportsbook ahead of the 2021 NFL season and make our picks.

595.5 rushing yards: Over (-110) or Under (-120)

Our pick: Under

After failing to make an impression last season in Pittsburgh, Conner enters a backfield with Chase Edmonds and Ito Smith in Arizona. Edmonds is likely to see more work after breaking out late last year and Smith is usually good for a few carries here and there. Injuries can always render this line moot, but Conner likely won’t see the volume of a lead back if everyone stays healthy. Murray is an able runner as well, further limiting Conner’s opportunities. There’s not great value on either side, but the under looks to be the better play.
