NFL Week 12 Betting Odds

NFL Week 12 Preview

Happy Thanksgiving. That’s right; Week 12 is here as we head into the month of December already. There are a ton of divisional match ups this week. My pick for game of the week is the Monday night game between the Patriots and Saints. Two of the leagues hottest quarterbacks go head-to–head.


Lot’s of football this week with no byes, so lets get at it.


Thursday, November 26 12:30 pm – Green Bay Packers @ Detroit Lions
Line: Green Bay -11(Total 47)

The Packers (6-4) chances of catching the Vikings is probably a long shot, but a win agaisnt the Lions on Thanksgiving could keep them in the playoff hunt. This is the fourth time this decade these two teams have met on Thanksgiving, with the Packers winning two of the previous three meetings. Green Bay has a 12-18-2 record in Thanksgiving games. The Lions (2-8) will have to work around another injury for rookie quarterback Matthew Stafford, who is coming off a five-touchdown effort, in a win against Cleveland. Look for Green Bay to get this one on the road.

Thursday, November 26 4:15 pm – Oakland Raiders @ Dallas Cowboys
Line: Dallas –14 (Total 40)

The Cowboys (7-3) will need to take the Raiders a bit more seriously as they approach Thursday’s game. Oakland (3-7) will look to pull off another shocker like last weeks victory over the heavily favored Bengals. The Raiders have a defensive front that matches up well with Dallas’ offensive line. So this will be one for the trenches. The Raiders decision to start quarterback Bruce Gradkowski has given Oakland some life. The Cowboys have played poorly on the offensive side of the ball the past two weeks and Tony Romo could find himself on the run and scrambling for an opening.The Raiders pull off the upset here, coming away with the win.

Thursday, November 26 8:20 pm New York Giants @ Denver Broncos
Line: New York –7 (Total 42)

The Giants (6-4) snapped their four-game losing skid with a 34-31 win over Atlanta last week. Denver (6-4) continues to spiral downward after starting 6-0. The Broncos are defense is losing potentcy and the offense is inept. Neither team has any real running attack. The Broncos need every win they can get , just for a wild-card spot, as they try to keep up with the divison leading Chargers. Look for Giants to get a big game from Eli Manning and take this one at Mile High.


Sunday, November 29 1:00 pm – Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Atlanta Falcons
Line: Atlanta –13 (Total 46)

The Falcons (5-5) are still trying to figure out what went wrong in last weeks loss against the Giants. The Buccaneers (1-9) continue to struggle. The defense has been the bright spot and the Flacons Matt Ryan best beware of throwing passes anwhere near Ronde Barber .The Bucs need to get rookie quarterback Josh Freeman in sync with his recieveing corp to mix up the offensive attack with a some passing. Atalanta bounces back and gets a much needed victory. .

Sunday, November 29 1:00 pm – Miami Dolphins @ Buffalo Bills
Line: Miami –3 (Total 40)

The Dolphins (5-5) have nixed their wildcat offense and have decided to ride running back Ricky Willliams to a few wins. The Bills (3-7) are beat up and are struggling to stop the run, but their secondary is a strength and should pose a threat for Chad Henne all day. Trent Edwards and TO finally found some life in last weeks game, but the overall chemistry is still absent. Miami will dominate physically and take this one in Buffalo.

Sunday, November 29 1:00 pm – Cleveland Browns @ Cincinnati Bengals
Line: Cincinnati –14 (Total 39)

Well one may think that this looks like a sure thing for the Bengals. But Cincinannti (7-3) will not take this game as lightly as they did in a loss to Oakland last week. Cleveland (1-9) is having a dismal season but the offense found a bit of life against the Lions last week. This will be the second meeting between these two teams this season. The Benglas won the first with a field goal in overtime in the previous meeting. Cincinnati will likely be without leading rusher Cedric Benson, who is out with a strained hip muscle. The Bengals will need to get out front early and build a hefty lead. Cincy wins this one at home.

Sunday, November 29 1:00 pm – Arizona Cardinals @ Tennessee Titans
Line: ++ (Total ++)

Arizona (7-3) will hope to get back Kurt Warner, after losing him in last weeks contest at halftime with a head injury. Arizona has been runing the ball well, and continues to be effective attacking with the pass. The Titans (4-6) have now won four in a row and and are great against stopping the run, with the secondary being much better as of late. Tennessee will run the ball as much as possible and look for quarterback Vince Young to keep the defense coordinators guessing. This will be a hard fought game,as the Titans pull away with the win.

Sunday, November 29 1:00 pm – Seattle Seahawks @ St. Louis Rams
Line: Seattle –3 (Total 42)

Seattle (3-7) has been plagued with countless injuries and it doesn’t seem to be getting any better. The Rams (1-9) have given teams like New Orleans and Arizona a battle in recent games but has still come up empty-handed. Quarteback Marc Bulger is banged up again, and the Rams have had to rely on Steven Jackson for the most. Depending the the infirmary report, I see the Seahawks edging this one out for the win.

Sunday, November 29 1:00 pm – Chicago Bears @ Minnesota Vikings
Line: Minnesota – 11 (Total 47)

The Bears (4-6) have dropped three in a row and will not be heading to the postseason, barring some miracle. The entire team has played lousy on both sides of the ball, especially new arrival, Jay Cutler. Cutler has been just plain awful as of late, throwing an ungodly amount of interceptions, and missing open recievers by a mile. The Vikings (9-1) however, continue to play well as Brett Favre shows no signs of slowing. Adrian Peterson has had a break out season and the Vikings defense is solid all the way around. The Vikings hand the Bears their fourth striaght loss by the time this one is in the books.

Sunday, November 29 1:00 pm – Carolina Panthers @ New York Jets
Line: New York – 3 (Total 41 ½)

The Panthers (4-6) are likely out of the playoff hunt and so too are the Jets (4-6). But with seven games remaining both team will need every win they can get. These two teams will try to gring it out on the ground and not let their quarterbacks cost them the game. Rookie Mark Sanchez has been averaging three to four interceptions per game, and Jake Delhomme is the leader in that category. The Panthers will get a little more out of their running game to walk away with the win.

Sunday, November 29 1:00 pm – Washington Redskins @ Philadelphia Eagles
Line: Philadelphia –9 (Total 41)

The Eagles (6-4) will need to make games like this count if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive. Philadelphia scored just enough to win, the first time these two teams met this season. The Redskins (3-7) are a team that just cannot seem to score enough points to beat their opponents, averaging just 9.6 points per game. Look for the Eagles to get enough from Donavan McNabb to net the victory.

Sunday, November 29 1:00 pm – Indianapolis Colts @ Houston Texans
Line: Indianapolis – 3 ½ (Total 48)

The Colts (10-0) continue to beat teams on their way to an AFC south tilte. Indy should be thinking about resting players for the playoffs, but are instead in hot pursuit of an undefeated season. The Texans (5-5) on the other hand are in heated playoff position battle, tyring to catch Jacksonville and stay a head of the igniting Titans. The Colts have narrowly escaped their last few games with wins. Houston is coming off a dissappointing loss to the Titans and will be ready to battle. Indy gets some big plays from Manning to win this one the road, and if Jacksonvile loses, the title may already be their’s.

Sunday, November 29 4:05 pm – Kansas City Chiefs @ San Diego Chargers
Line: San Diego –14 (Total 45)

The Chiefs(3-7) seem to have improved over their last few outings, unfotunatley it’s probably to late. They are coming off a suprising win over Pittsburgh last weekend and should have plenty of momentum and confidence heading to San Diego. The Chargers (7-3) are riding a five game wining streak and quarteback Philip Rivers has been playing well. This will be closer than most will imagine, with the Chargers coming away with the win.

Sunday, November 29 4:05 pm – Jacksonville Jaguars @ San Francisco 49ers
Line: San Francisco -3 (Total 42)

The Jags (6-4) will look to keep their playoff run alive with a win over the Forty-Niners (4-6) this Sunday. This sould be good old-fashioned hard-hitting football, with a heavy emphasis on the ground game. Jacksonville will need to control 49ers running back Frank Gore anyway possible. San Francisco will need to take advantage of several key players missing from the Jags defense due to injuries. San Francisco will be better rested and pull off a win at home.

Sunday, November 29 8:20 pm – Pittsburgh Steelers @ Baltimore Ravens
Line: ++ (Total ++)

The Ravens (5-5) will host AFC north rivals the Pittsburgh Steelers (6-4) in a Sunday night showdown. Both teams met three times in 2008, including their last meeting, in the AFC Championship Game. This will be a grudge match and will be one of the hardest htitting games all year. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is coming off a head injury, and his status is da-to-day. Defensively the Steelers will also be without Terrell Suggs and Troy Polamalu . Baltimore will need to win this one to get back in the runing for a postseason appearance. The Ravens’ offense has been stuggling, but the defense has been playing better and is getting back to Ravens form. Pittsburgh has dropped two in a row, inclulding one to the Chiefs in Week 11, and will be desperatley seeking a win. This is a huge game for both teams. The Steelers will manage a field goal late in the game earning them a hard fought divisional win.


Monday, November 30 8:30 pm – New England Patriots @ New Orleans Saints
Line: Cincinnati -14 (Total 56)

The Patriots (7-3) will look to end the Saints run in front of a national televison audience on Monday night. New Orleans (10-0) will try to thwart New Englnds attempt and keep the steam train rolling. This game will be loaded with plenty of offensive talent and features two of the best quarterbacks this season. The Patriots just missed snapping the Colts’ undefeated run two weeks ago on the road, and now get a chance to try it all over again against the Saints. This will be the best match up of the week. The Saints Drew Brees will prove he deserves to play among the greats as he leads his Saints to 11-0.
