The New Orleans Saints host the Arizona Cardinals to open Week 7 on Thursday Night Football, pitting two desperate teams against one another. There are player props available for the Saints vs. Cardinals game, which features two teams with identical 2-4 records who are in risk of falling far behind in the postseason race.
This matchup has a total of 44 points to begin off Week 7. Both the Saints and Cardinals are without important skill position players heading into the matchup.
The Saints are sixth in the league in yards per game despite playing half of their games without starting quarterback Jameis Winston. The Cardinals are ranked 22nd in points per game, as quarterback Kyler Murray has been without several of his weapons throughout the season.
In addition to the return of standout receiver DeAndre Hopkins from suspension this week, the Cardinals also acquired Panthers WR Robbie Anderson this week. This provides gamblers with additional alternatives for TNF props.
Let’s examine the top player props for your NFL Week 7 Saints vs. Cardinals wagers.

In the odds listed above, both Andy Dalton and Kyler Murray are favored to throw 1.5 passing touchdowns. Alvin Kamara’s rushing total is set at 61.5 yards, while Chris Olave’s receiving total is set at 61.5 yards.
The game will begin at 8:15 p.m. ET. Throughout the whole game, there is projected to be little to no wind.
TNF Prediction: Alvin Kamara Rushes for More Than 61.5 Yards
Following a lackluster performance in Week 1, Alvin Kamara has done his best to keep the Saints’ season alive, despite a number of injuries, including his own (he missed weeks 2 and 4). He rushed for 61 yards against Carolina in Week 3. In the two games since, he has returned to his five-time Pro Bowl form.
Kamara has ran for 103 and 99 yards in his previous two games, while also gaining 116 yards via the air. With Jameis Winston out, New Orleans will undoubtedly rely more on the ground game, which bodes well for Kamara rushing props. This is advantageous against Arizona, which has the 25th-ranked rush defense according to Pro Football Focus.

The two players with the shortest odds to score the opening touchdown are Alvin Kamara and DeAndre Hopkins. So far in the campaign, Kamara hasn’t struck gold. Hopkins is making a comeback after completing a six-game ban.
TNF Prediction: Olave Hits First
Chris Olave, the third receiver chosen in this year’s draft (11th overall), has so far lived up to expectations. He had the most yards (389) among rookie receivers (at least 41 in every game). He scored touchdowns in each of his past two games.
In his most recent game, he caught a touchdown against Seattle but was concussed in the process. He was out last week but is anticipated to play this week, so you should take that into account when making your Saints vs. Cardinals prop bets. Expecting a Cardinal to hit the end zone early is a risky bet because Arizona hasn’t scored a touchdown in the first quarter of any game this season.
Regarding an anytime touchdown scorer, it would be remarkable if the Cardinals didn’t try to energize their attack by slinging the ball to DeAndre Hopkins, their top target (they scored no offensive TDs last week). Hopkins scored five touchdowns in his final six games of 2021.
