NFL Week 12 Betting Odds and Predictions

Week 12 of the NFL season is set to kick off with three games on Thanksgiving Day. Many of the spreads in week 12 are rather large, but let’s take a look at five of the best games to bet on this weekend around the NFL.

Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears -3.0

The Detroit Lions will host the Chicago Bears in their annual Thanksgiving Day game. This is a rematch of a game that was played two weeks ago in Chicago in which the Bears beat the Lions 34-22. The Chicago Bears offense was absolutely unstoppable in that contest, but the Bears could be without Mitchell Trubisky in this contest. Trubisky injured his throwing shoulder in the win over the Vikings, and his status is questionable. Fortunately for the Bears, they still have Khalil Mack and one of the best defenses in the NFL. The Lions have struggled to score all season long, and Chicago will keep Detroit to a low number. Bet the Chicago Bears -3.0 over the Lions in this game.

Cincinnati Bengals -3.0 vs. Cleveland Browns

The Cincinnati Bengals will host the Cleveland Browns in an AFC North battle on Sunday. The Bengals are only a three-point favorite in this game, which is a bit of a surprise. Cleveland has won just three games this season, but they did pick up an impressive win over the Falcons in week 11. Quarterback Baker Mayfield has shown glimpses of greatness this season but has also been wildly inconsistent. The Bengals have been horrible on defense for much of this season, but they should be able to get some pressure on Mayfield in this game. The status of wide receiver AJ Green will play a huge role in this game, but it is likely that he will suit up. This should be a competitive game, but the Bengals have too much offense for the Browns in this game. Look for the Bengals to win a wild affair in Cincy. Bet the Bengals -3.0 over the Browns on Sunday.

Los Angeles Chargers vs. Arizona Cardinals +12.5

The Los Angeles Chargers are a whopping 12.5 point favorite over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. The Chargers were off to a 7-2 start to the season but suffered a last-second loss to the Denver Broncos last weekend. Quarterback Philip Rivers has thrown for nearly 3,000 yards and 23 touchdowns this season but threw two costly interceptions in the loss to Denver. The Cardinals come into this game with a 2-8 record, but they have been competitive in recent weeks. Arizona lost by just 12 points to the explosive Kansas City Chiefs two weeks ago, and they are still playing hard. The Los Angeles Chargers are the obvious pick to win this game, but the Cardinals won’t get blown out in LA. Take the points and bet the Arizona Cardinals +12.5 in this matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers.

Denver Broncos vs. Pittsburgh Steelers -3.0

Another road favorite this week is the Pittsburgh Steelers, who will be taking on the Denver Broncos. The Steelers have won six straight games to take control of the AFC North Division, while the Denver Broncos are clinging to playoff hope with a 4-6 record. The Broncos stunned the Chargers in week 11, and they have one of the top defenses in the NFL. Denver also averages over 124 rushing yards per game which should keep the explosive Steelers offense off of the field. The Steelers are still the pick in this game because quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is playing at an extremely high level. Big Ben has thrown for over 3,200 yards this season, and he should take advantage of a depleted Broncos secondary. Winning in Denver won’t be an easy task, but the Steelers will get the job done. Bet the Steelers -3.0 over the Broncos on Sunday.

Houston Texans vs. Tennessee Titans

One of the best games of the weekend will take place on Monday night when the Houston Texans play host to the Tennessee Titans. The Houston Texans have won seven straight games to take control of the AFC South Division, but a Titans victory could close the gap for the playoff spot. Houston has won their past two games by a combined four points, and this game should be extremely tight as well. The Texans feature one of the best pass rushing attacks in football, with J.J. Watt leading the way. The Titans will have to find a way to keep quarterback Marcus Mariota upright and healthy in this contest if they want a chance. Mariota has dealt with injuries all season long and has thrown just seven touchdown passes this season. The Titans can play defense, and that unit should keep them in this game right down to the wire. Houston has won seven straight games, and they will make it eight with a victory over Tennessee on Monday night. Bet the Houston Texans over the Tennessee Titans.

NFL Week 10 Betting Odds and Predictions

The NFL season has reached the halfway point and teams are starting to make their moves for a playoff spot. There are several great games on tap for week 10, but we have identified the five best games to bet on this weekend. Let’s take a look at these games with a betting prediction for each of them.

Cincinnati Bengals vs. New Orleans Saints -4.5

The Cincinnati Bengals will host the red-hot New Orleans Saints on Sunday afternoon. New Orleans comes into this game riding a seven-game winning streak, and quarterback Drew Brees is having a historic season. The Bengals come in with a 5-3 record, but their defense has been atrocious so far this season. Cincinnati is giving up close to 30 points per game this season, and that recipe will not work out well against the high scoring Saints. Both of these teams could be playoff teams this season, but this game will still be a mismatch. Bet the New Orleans and their dynamic offense -4.5 over the Bengals on Sunday.

Chicago Bears -6.5 vs. Detroit Lions

The first place Chicago Bears will host the last place Detroit Lions in an NFC clash on Sunday. The Bears surprisingly have one of the top offenses in the NFL this season, but their real strength is on defense. Khalil Mack is expected back for this game, and the Bears defense should get plenty of pressure on Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford. Stafford and the Lions passing attack have struggled this season, and they recently traded away their top receiver, Golden Tate. Detroit gives up plenty of points as well, and Mitchell Trubisky and the Bears offense should have a big day. Trubisky is another great play at PlayWV. The Bears have too much talent for the Lions and will win this game by a touchdown plus. Bet the Chicago Bears -6.5 over the Lions.

Cleveland Browns vs. Atlanta Falcons -4.0

The struggling Cleveland Browns will take on playoff hopeful Atlanta Falcons at home on Sunday. The Browns have lost four straight games after showing promise to begin the season, and it cost coach Hue Jackson his job. Atlanta has won three straight games to get back into the playoff picture in the NFC. Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan leads an explosive passing attack that is averaging more than 320 yards per game.

Atlanta will try to take advantage of an aggressive, but young Cleveland defense on Sunday. Atlanta still is trying to find more consistency from their defense, after giving up over 28 points per game. The good news for the Falcons is that the Cleveland Browns offense has struggled of late under rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield. The Browns are still a year or two away from really being competitive, and the Falcons should take advantage of them and win their fourth straight game. Bet the Falcons -4.0 over the Browns.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Washington Redskins +3.0

This game could be one of the most intriguing matchups on the week 10 schedule. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are a three point favorite over the visiting Washington Redskins in this game. Both the Bucs and Redskins are hard to figure out this season, with both teams being extremely inconsistent. Tampa Bay has lost five of their last six games to drop to 3-5 on the year, but they still feature the best passing attack in the NFL. Washington comes into this game with a 5-3 record, but looked horrible in a week nine blowout loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

The Redskins come into this game with a top-10 defense, but their offense has struggled throughout the 2018 season. Washington will also be without two of their starting offensive lineman for the remainder of the season. The Buccaneers defense is the worst in the league, and they put a ton of pressure on their offense to bail them out. Look for the Redskins to overcome their injuries and get a big win on the road in this game. Bet the Redskins +3.0 to beat the Bucs.

Philadelphia Eagles -6.5 vs. Dallas Cowboys

Longtime NFC East rivals will meet in prime time on Sunday night. Both the Eagles and Cowboys have struggled through much of this season, and both are trying to chase down the Redskins for the lead in the division. Philadelphia and Dallas have both struggled on offense this season, but feature two of the best defenses in the NFL. Points may be hard to come by in this game, but the Eagles will get a boost on offense in the form of wide receiver Golden Tate. Tate should improve a passing attack that is averaging 260 yards per game this season. Dallas is a mess on offense, and it doesn’t look like head coach Jason Garrett has any answers. The Eagles are at home, and have the better team. Bet Philadelphia -6.5 over the Cowboys on Sunday night.
