Analyzing the 2016 NFL Week 12 Expert Betting Picks
Thursday, November 24, 2016
Minnesota Vikings at Detroit Lions (+2.5)
The Vikings are the better team in this matchup and have gone 3-0 ATS in their last three against Detroit, making Adrian Peterson and company the pick in this Week 12 NFC North divisional showdown.
Washington Redskins at Dallas Cowboys (-3.5)
The Cowboys have won two of three against the Skins and are my pick to snap a two- game home skid against the Skins.
Pittsburgh Steelers at Indianapolis Colts (-1.5)
The Steelers have blown the Colts out I their two career meetings with Andrew Luck on the roster while winning three straight and four of five against Indy overall. Pittsburgh wins and covers.
Sunday, November 27, 2016
Tennessee Titans at Chicago Bears (-5)
The Bears are the pick to get the home win and narrow ATS cover against a Titans team that still needs a lot of help, particularly on the defensive side of the ball.
Jacksonville Jaguars at Buffalo Bills (-5)
The Bills will be looking for some payback for their 34-31 road loss to the Jags last season as a 3-point favorite. I say LeSean McCoy and the Bills get it.
Cincinnati Bengals at Baltimore Ravens (+1.5)
The Bengals have owned their AFC North division rivals by winning five straight and going 4-1 ATS along the way. The Bengals wins and cover.
Arizona Cardinals at Falcons (-2.5)
The Cardinals went 6-3 ATS on the road last season and are the better team in all three phases.
New York Giants at Cleveland Browns (-3.5)
Eli Manning and the Giants beat RG3 and the Browns in a shootout to cover the spread.
Los Angeles Rams at New Orleans Saints (-1.5)
Drew Brees and the Saints win by at least three points at home to get the ATS cover against a Rams team that needs to improve its offense.
San Francisco 49ers at Miami Dolphins (-5)
Fe, fi, fo, fum…I smell a trap game and I’m not dumb! The Dolphins may be playing at home against a new-look Niners team, but Miami went 2-6 ATS at home a year ago and will definitely be able to score the ball under offensive-minded head coach Chip Kelly.
San Diego Chargers at Houston Texans (-4.5)
The Texans went 5-1 ATS as a favorite in 205 – and that was without a ‘real’ quarterback. Brock Osweiler leads Houston to the SU win and ATS cover.
Seattle Seahawks at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+5)
Russell Wilson and the Seahawks cruise to victory over a Tampa Bay team that went 3-5 ATS at home last season.
Carolina Panthers at Oakland Raiders (+3)
The Raiders may be playing at home, but the Panthers are superior in all three phases and will get the outright road win and ATS cover after going 11-6 ATS as a favorite last season.
Kansas City Chiefs at Broncos (-3)
The Chiefs beat the Broncos in the second of their two meetings a year ago to snap a seven-game SU skid and are my pick to get the home win and ATS cover against their AFC Wes rivals in this Week 12 divisional showdown.
New England Patriots at New York Jets (+2.5)
I jus can’t see Tom Brady and the Pats losing this important Week 12 matchup against their AFC East rivals. New England wins and covers the NFL betting line.
Monday, November 28, 2016
Green Bay Packers at Philadelphia Eagles (+3.5)
Philly’s 3-5 ATS mark at home last season, combined with the fact that Green Bay is superior in all three phases, means the Packers win and cover!
