NFL Week 12 SU Betting Picks

Written by on November 19, 2018

It truly is amazing how a single play can dictate how the rest of the season might go for a team. The Washington Redskins looked to be in control of the NFC East this weekend, but with QB Alex Smith now done for the year after a horrific leg break, things don’t look quite so rosy. The Redskins have themselves a short week, as they will play Dallas on Thanksgiving Day as part of a 3-game Thursday. That game will be included in our SU picks here, as will 3 others from the NFL Week 12 betting action. We will also have ATS and O/U picks coming your way, so be on the lookout for those.

NFL Week 12 SU Betting Picks

Chicago Bears over Detroit Lions

This critical NFC North match-up will be the opening game on the schedule on Thanksgiving Day, and it’s one that could allow the Bears to take another step towards the division crown. After winning their 4th straight game over the weekend, the Bears are now at 7-3 and in a rather comfortable lead at the top.

They are 2-1 in divisional play and can really help their cause in a number of different ways by winning here. The Lions broke out of a skid with a win in Week 11, and they have won 9 of the last 11 meetings with the Bears. I think that trend changes, though, as I am on Chicago to win.

Dallas Cowboys over Washington Redskins

Just a couple of weeks ago, we were all talking about the potential firing of Jason Garrett amid the likelihood that the Dallas Cowboys were going to once again miss the playoffs.

That conversation has since gone a little quiet, as Dallas has now won back to back games and are very much back in the hunt for the NFC East. The Redskins now look to be in real trouble after losing QB Alex Smith for the season in a loss to the Houston Texans. That could prove to be a major turning point for this Redskins team, who I believe will lose again on Thursday.

Philadelphia Eagles over New York Giants

Sitting at 4-6 in the NFL usually means that your season is as good as over, but the defending Super Bowl champions still have a glimmer of hope when you consider the current state of the NFC East. That said, they need to start finding ways to win, as they have now dropped back to back games.

The Eagles are favorites for NFL Week 12 against the Giants.

They will be facing their division rivals this weekend, with the New York Giants suddenly coming to life with 2 wins in a row. It’s a modest turnaround, but one that makes them a dangerous proposition this week. Still, I like the Eagles to keep their slim playoff hopes alive with a win.

Cincinnati Bengals over Cleveland Browns

No one player makes a team in the NFL, although losing a star player can end up having a negative impact on that team. That has certainly been the case with the Cincinnati Bengals, as they have struggled mightily with AJ Green on the sidelines.

A loss to the Ravens in Week 11 saw the Bengals slip back to .500 and below the playoff line. The Browns are coming off a bye week that may just have killed some of the momentum they picked up with a win over Atlanta. This should be a close on, but I have the Bengals edging it.
