2019 NFL Week 12 SU Betting Picks

Written by on November 18, 2019

We are used to seeing wild games in the NFL every weekend, but we are certainly not accustomed to seeing what went down in the Thursday night game in Week 11. A big win over a division rival by the Cleveland Browns was marred by an insane moment at the end of the game, where Myles Garrett of the Browns went after Steelers Mason Rudolph, using the QB’s helmet as a weapon. It was an attack that cost Garrett the remainder of the season and perhaps even a few games next year, too.

It’s clear that the pressure is now beginning to increase in the hunt for playoff spots, so let’s look ahead to Week 12 to see if we can come up with some winning NFL Betting picks, starting with our SU selections for the week.

2019 NFL Week 12 SU Betting Picks

Houston Texans over Indianapolis Colts

The Colts came into the season as the favorites to win the AFC South, but that flipped when Andrew Luck announced his retirement mere days before the start of the season The bookies considered the division to be wide open and it has certainly played out that way.

This game is absolutely huge, with the winner of this one getting a definite advantage in the race or the division crown. The recent trends suggest that this is a game where the Colts might get the upper hand, but I think home field advantage propels the Texans to a win in a close one.

Week 12 Betting Trends

  • Texans are 6-3 SU in their last 9 games
  • Texans are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games played in November
  • Colts are 14-6 SU in their last 20 games
  • Colts are 13-6 SU in their last 19 games against an opponent in the AFC conference

Atlanta Falcons over Tampa Bay Buccaneers

You could look at the standings and call this one a meaningless game, but there are issues besides playoff spots to consider. At 1-7 on the season, Falcons coach Dan Quinn looked like a certainty to be one of the first coaching casualties of the year, but back to back wins for the Falcons has seen some of that talk start to calm down.

Both of those wins came against division foes, so look for Atlanta to keep that trend rolling this weekend. They have won each of their last 5 meetings versus Tampa and I like them to extend that run.

NFL Week 12 Betting Trends

  • Buccaneers are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games
  • Buccaneers are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games against an opponent in the NFC South division
  • Falcons are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games
  • Falcons are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games played in week 12

Oakland Raiders over New York Jets

After all the drama in the preseason, we were all perhaps a little too quick to write off the Oakland Raiders. Not only is this team now in the playoff picture, they are also in the hunt to win the AFC West, which no-one would have predicted just a few short weeks ago.

The Raiders are favorites against the Jets in NFL Week 12.

The Raiders are now 5-2 in their last 7 games, and while they have just 2 wins in their last 15 on the road, this team now looks a whole lot different than the one that racked up all those losses. It’s not going to be easy this coming weekend, but I like the Raiders to ground the Jets.

Week 12 Betting Trends

  • Raiders are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games
  • Raiders are 2-13 SU in their last 15 games on the road
  • Jets are 4-16 SU in their last 20 games
  • Jets are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games at home

Green Bay Packers over San Francisco 49ers

The game of the week is set for primetime next Sunday night and is one that could well have a huge impact on who gets the #1 seed in the NFC. The 49ers are at home and sitting with a 9-1 record on the season, which would automatically make you think of them as clear favorites.

They have ground out some results in recent weeks, though, and came up short against another big contender in the NFC, losing to the Seahawks in a primetime game. I’m calling for the upset here and taking the Packers to win.

NFL Week 12 Betting Trends

  • Packers are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games
  • Packers are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games against an opponent in the NFC conference
  • 49ers are 9-1 SU in their last 10 games
  • 49ers are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games at home
