NFL picks, Week 12: Straight up and against the spread

Last week I went 10-4 on the straight up picks and 5-3 against the spread. I’d probably take that every week, but it isn’t great.

Let’s see what we have cooking for week 12.

Straight Up

Vikings @ Lions: Lions

Chargers @ Cowboys: Cowboys

Giants @ Redskins: Redskins

Browns @ Bengals: Bengals

Panthers @ Jets: Panthers

Titans @ Colts: Titans

Buccaneers @ Falcons: Falcons

Dolphins @ Patriots: Patriots

Bears @ Eagles: Eagles

Bills @ Chiefs: Chiefs

Seahawks @ 49ers: Seahawks

Broncos @ Raiders: Raiders

Saints @ Rams: Rams

Jaguars @ Cardinals: Jaguars

Packers @ Steelers: Steelers

Texans @ Ravens: Ravens

There were some pretty tough ones in here this week, hopefully I don’t get stung too badly.

Against the Spread

This will be updated as the lines change, up until I make my bets. Remember, if you are planning on making money off of these, don’t. I do this for fun, not to feed my wife and kids.

When betting against the spread I pick what I think the spread to each game should be. Then if my spread is two or more points away from the actual spread, I place a bet on the team my spread favors.

Chargers (-1) @ Cowboys: Cowboys
My spread: Cowboys (-1)

Giants @ Redskins (-7.5): Redskins
My spread: Redskins (-10)

Dolphins @ Patriots (-17): Patriots
My spread: Patriots (-19)

Bears @ Eagles (-14): Eagles
My spread: Eagles (-16)

Buccaneers @ Falcons (-10): Buccaneers
My spread: Falcons (-7)

Jaguars (-5) @ Cardinals: Jaguars
My spread: Jaguars (-13)

Packers @ Steelers (-14): Packers
My spread: Steelers (-10)

Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving!
