We are down to Week 12 in the NFL season and with three games on Thursday, the schedule is a little light on Sunday.
After a tough week against the spread in week 11 with a number of crazy upsets fooling NFL punters around the world, we’re looking to bounce back this week.
Coming into Week 12 we have compiled picks, with their spreads, for all of the NFL action this week.
Make sure you don’t miss our other match and betting previews that provide further analysis:
Chicago Bears (-2.5) vs. Detroit Lions O/U 43.5
The Bears have won four in a row and they have been solid on both sides of the ball. However, they will likely be without starting quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, who has an injured shoulder and is listed as questionable. The Lions lost to the Bears in Chicago a couple of weeks ago and they snapped their three-game losing streak in their last game. Even in Detroit on Thanksgiving and with Trubisky questionable the Bears’ defnese will play well in this game and they will win and cover.
Washington Redskins vs. Dallas Cowboys (-7) O/U 40.5
Nothing much at stake in this game except first place in the NFC East. The Cowboys have won two in a row while the Redskins not only lost their last game, but lost starting quarterback Alex Smith to a season-ending injury. Longtime backup Colt McCoy will get the start for the Skins and while they may not win their defense and running back Adrian Peterson will play well and Washington will at least cover the spread.
Atlanta Falcons vs. New Orleans Saints (-13) O/U 59.5
The Saints have won nine games in a row and have the highest scoring team in the league. On top of that they crushed the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles in their last game. The Falcons have lost two in a row and even giving 13-points New Orleans will cover.
Seattle Seahawks vs. Carolina Panthers (-3.5) O/U 47.5
The Seahawks are coming off a win while the Panthers have lost two in a row. This game is important between two teams chasing the NFC Wild Card. Cam Newton will play well at home, where Carolina is unbeaten on the season, and the Panthers will win and cover.
Oakland Raiders vs. Baltimore Ravens (-10.5) O/U 43
The Raiders picked up their 2nd win of the season in their last game and face the Ravens, who won their last game behind rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson’s first career start. Baltimore has the top ranked defense and at home they will win and cover.
Cleveland Browns vs. Cincinnati Bengals (-3) O/U 47.5
The Browns are coming off a bye week and they beat the Atlanta Falcons in their last game snapping their three-game losing streak. The Bengals are coming off a loss and at 5-5 they have to start winning to make the post-season. Cincy has the league’s worst ranked defense and Cleveland will cover in what will be a close game.
New York Giants vs. Philadelphia Eagles (-5-5) O/U 46
The Eagles were blown out in their last game and that dropped them two games under .500. Still, even on the road in the Big Apple and with the Giants coming off a win Philly will win and cover in this NFC East encounter.
San Francisco 49ers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-3.5) O/U 54.5
The Bucs have lost four in a row despite the fact they have the top-ranked offense in the NFL. The 49ers have had a season to forget and they are winless on the road this season. That will not change after this game, as Tampa Bay will win and cover the spread in their house.

New England Patriots (-9.5) vs. New York Jets O/U 46
The Patriots have had a bye week to get over their shocking 34-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans. The Jets were crushed in their last game, by the Buffalo Bills no less, and they have lost four in a row. While they have covered in their last five home games against the Pats that trend will not continue. Brady and company will get it done in this game and New England will win and cover.
Jacksonville Jaguars (-3) vs. Buffalo Bills O/U 37
The Bills’ offense has been pretty bad this season, but they scored 41 points in a blowout win in their last game. The Jags are in a freefall losing six in a row and they were up against the Steelers in their last game and losing giving up 14 points in the 4th quarter. However, they have Leonard Fournette back and he will help Jax win and cover.
Arizona Cardinals vs. L.A. Chargers (-12.5) O/U 44.5
The Chargers had their long win streak snapped in their last game facing the Denver Broncos. However, look for them to get back on track facing a Cardinals’ team that ranks dead last in the league in ppg. Even giving 12.5 points and coming off a loss L.A. will win and cover.
Pittsburgh Steelers (-3) vs. Denver Broncos O/U 47
The Steelers are riding a six-game winning streak and they won their last game even though Big Ben was picked off three times. The Broncos have not been that bad on the season, as their losses have been pretty close and five of their losses have come facing teams that are currently over .500. Still, take the hot team in this one, as Pittsburgh will win and cover.
Miami Dolphins vs. Indianapolis Colts (-7.5) O/U 51
The Colts have won four in a row and Andrew Luck has been great under center in that span. The .500 Dolphins may get starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill back from injury, but it will not matter as a hit Indy team at home and will and cover.
Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings (-3) O/U 47.5
Both of these teams are coming off losses and each is chasing the Chicago Bears in the NFC North. Aaron Rodgers has been solid, but has not gotten much help and the run game fell flat in their last game. Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota defense are the reasons the Vikings will win and cover in this Sunday Night game.
Tennessee Titans vs. Houston Texans (-5.5) O/U OFF
The Texans have reeled off seven straight wins and they are atop the AFC South. After a big win over the Patriots and winning two in a row overall the Titans were crushed in their last game. Houston will stay hot on Monday night and win and cover really taking control of the AFC South.
