Best UNDER NFL Betting Picks Week 12
Carolina at Dallas, UNDER 45Though Cam Newton and Tony Romo are capable of piling up mega scores, the key NFL betting trends in this game suggest that the opposite will be happening this Thursday. For starters, Carolina has allowed just 16.2 points and 315.0 yards per game in all their four games this season. In their last two games against Washington and Tennessee, they have even been better, allowing an average of 13.0 points and 264.0 yards per game. Meanwhile, the Cowboys are 8-1 UNDER in their last home games when the total is placed at 44.5 or more points, and they gave up 28 or less points in their previous game. Added to the fact that the Cowboys have been playing splendidly in their last two games (against Miami and Tampa Bay), allowing an average of 12.0 points and 268.5 yards per game in those contests, we believe a tight game could be in the offing here, setting up a high likelihood for a tame cagey scoring affair.
Buffalo at Kansas City, *UNDERThe biggest reason behind K-City’s success isn’t just in the fact that Alex Smith and Co. are playing better attacking football, but is also largely creditable to their improved Justin Houstin-led defense that has held the Chiefs’ last four opponents to a total of just 39 total points. Against a Buffalo team that has recently struggled offensively due to Tyrod Taylor’s injuries and E.J. Manuel’s challenged efficiency, it’s hard to see Buffalo pouring solid points here, even if LeSean McCoy may have a good game here. Meanwhile, Buffalo’s defense has been the real deal (ask Tom Brady and the Pats who could only muster 20 points against them at the Gillette Stadium last week), which should prevent the Chiefs from also lighting up the scoreboard. This game will therefore be a low-scoring encounter that is likely to combine for less than 40 points, thus paying UNDER total bettors.
