NFL Betting Guide (WEEK 12)

Time is flying by, and somehow we’re already into Week 12 of the NFL season. If you’ve been following along on my weekly betting endeavors, you’d know that I’ve had more high and lows so far than the life of a childhood actor, and last week put me back under .500 on the season. But this week feels different, and I’m already in a good spot heading into Sunday thanks to me going 3/3 on the Thanksgiving games. Will this be the week I go a perfect 15/15? Probably not, but a little optimism never hurt anyone. Let’s take a look at the rest of my picks for Week 12

SUNDAY

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (-3.5) @ BUFFALO BILLS (+3.5): JAGS -3.5 

OAKLAND RAIDERS (+11.5) @ BALTIMORE RAVENS (-11.5): RAIDERS +11.5

SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (+3.5) @ TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS (-3.5): BUCS +3.5

NY GIANTS (+6.5) @ PHILADELPHIA EAGLES (-6.5): GIANTS +6.5

CLEVELAND BROWNS (+3.5) @ CINCINATTI BENGALS (-3.5): BROWNS +3.5

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (-9.5) @ NY JETS (+9.5): PATRIOTS -9.5

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (+3.5) @ CAROLINA PANTHERS (-3.5): PANTHERS -3.5

MIAMI DOLPHINS (+9.5) @ INDIANAPOLIS COLTS (-9.5): COLTS -9.5

ARIZONA CARDINALS (+12.5) @ LA CHARGERS (-12.5): CHARGERS -12.5

PITTSBURGH STEELERS (-3.5) @ DENVER BRONCOS (+3.5): STEELERS -3.5

GREEN BAY PACKERS (+3.5) @ MINNESOTA VIKINGS (-3.5): VIKINGS -3.5

MONDAY

TENNESSEE TITANS (+6.5) @ HOUSTON TEXANS (-6.5): TEXANS -6.5


As you can see, I went with a lot of favorites this week because the combination of home games and decent spreads made taking favorites, well, more favorable. The 4 underdogs I took this week are definite toss ups, and I can already picture myself yelling “Fuck the Raiders/Bucs/Giants/Browns!” at my TV tomorrow. But like I’ve been saying all year, this is why we bet. You can’t just take all favorites because you’re destined to get burned eventually, so maybe these 4 scrubs will prove me wrong and help out my bank account this week. That’s all for now, and I’m about to start working on my Week 12 Draft Kings blog after this, so be on the lookout for that within the next hour or 2. And please, for the love of fucking God, cover the spreads tomorrow/Monday or I’m gonna feel like I wasted my 3/3 start.
