NFL odds, lines, point spreads: Updated week 12 betting information for selection of each game

Author: | Posted in Sports No comments

The bad news for players: another double-digit underdog won directly in Week 11. The Titans fell into the hands of the Texans, who used a strong defensive performance to astonishingly prevent one of the AFC’s top teams.

If you happen to bet the Texans money line in that game, you get the power. But several players who thought the Titans could be an easy choice against the spread given their recent successes were frustrated as the underdogs put in another strong week ahead and continued to get even the most savvy players to rip their hair out .

Heading into week 12, the NFL landscape looks like a mess. There are 12 teams with records better than 0.500 in the AFC. The NFC has only six, but the Wild Card race in that conference is set to become a battle among the current five-win teams.

The 2021 NFL season has been as unpredictable as ever, and that may not change. At least some teams begin to perform and emerge as potential candidates. The Cardinals continue to perform well every week. Chiefs and Buccaneers are also starting to round off in form. And every division leader at least starts to retire as the league gets ready for its stretch run.

But hey, this is still the season for the unexpected, so it may turn out to be foolish to expect things to fall into place in the last month and a half of the season. As such, it is still imperative that players look for overrated and underrated teams, find berths, and know the latest injury news to take advantage of NFL odds, trends, and skewed point spreads that may prove fruitful.

And if there’s a chance of finding another Texans over Titans type disturbed, it could prove to be hugely valuable. That said, there are no double-digit underdogs yet in Week 12. In fact, these lines are the most complex of any to date, with no one outside the Thanksgiving board standing over six-point spreads like Wednesday, Nov. 24. So if there is a disturbance, it will not be as shocking as some of the others we have seen this year.

NFL best game for week 12

Seahawks (+1) in Washington

Full disclosure: we tried to bet on the Seahawks as underdogs last week against the Colt McCoy and Cardinals. It did not work when McCoy and the Cardinals honestly embarrassed the Seahawks, defeating them 23-13 at home and dropping them far outside the playoffs with a record of 3-7.

So why do we go back to the well and trust the Seahawks again? Well, the rationale is simple. There has been one massive swing in the spread of this game that could end up favoring Seattle.

The advanced spread for this game was markedly in favor of the Seahawks. They were favored by 3.5 points away from home in Washington. Now the tension has fluctuated 4.5 points in the opposite direction. Yes, it’s partly related to the Seahawks’ games. It’s also due to Washington’s recent success, as the football team wins back-to-back against the Buccaneers and Panthers.

Still, a 4.5-point turn in the spread is one major development. The Seahawks were once expected to win this match by more than one field goal. Now they basically just have to win (or draw) to cover this spread. That’s a good line value, especially considering Russell Wilson is 36-11 right up after a loss. Granted, he lost last week despite coming off a defeat, but that should only strengthen him more in a fight against a defense that has proven weaker than the Cardinals’ on a year-long basis.

It’s also worth mentioning that Wilson’s finger injury will have another week to heal and he will have an extra rest day ahead of “Monday Night Football.” This may prove to be important for him as he seems to regain his dominant caste form.

Is this a risk? Of course, but the Seahawks need to jump back at some point, right? And while casual players might think Seattle is done, they are not toast yet. As long as Russell Wilson plays, he will do everything he can to win. This is a potential chance to do so, though the Seahawks’ defense will have to find a way to challenge Taylor Heinicke.

Titans (+6) with the Patriots

The Patriots have been excellent in recent weeks, winning five games in a row and also covering the spread in each of them. But all good things must have an end, and for the Patriots, it can happen against the Titans.

Tennessee has had its share of problems in recent weeks. They have not covered in back-to-back fights and were just manipulated by the humble Texans. That said, they should be ready and motivated to come back from it as an underdog.

The Titans have been elite as underdogs this year. They have actually posted a 5-0 record against the spread as an underdog, so they seem to thrive as one under Mike Vrabel. They want a chance to stay in the game against the Patriots, and it seems possible to cover a spread of six points.

The Titans, of course, need some setbacks to step up in place of Derrick Henry, be it D’Onta Foreman or Dontrell Hilliard. They will also need Ryan Tannehill to avoid mistakes. He threw four interceptions against the Texans last week, but only had eight a year in the weeks before that.

If Tannehill can stay accurate and avoid big mistakes, the Titans should move the ball a little on the Patriots.

When we talk about New England, they are not an explosive attack, so the Titans match well against them. They have the fourth-best running defense in the NFL and allow an average of just 97.8 rushing yards per game. match. They may be beaten from the air, but Mike Vrabel may be willing to take more chances to move Mac Jones away from his seat and make him uncomfortable.

Vrabel could also look to take the following routes on the field away and force Jones to hit his defense deep. The Patriots’ signal caller is one of the most accurate passing players in the league, but his deep ball is still a work in progress. He has completed just 13 of 38 passes in addition to 20 yards for 408 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions.

Either way, it’s just too many points to give a team like the Titans. They are 8-3 for a reason and have performed extremely well as underdogs. New England could win this match, but if they are at all distracted by an important upcoming divisional slant with Bills on “Monday Night Football” in Week 13, it will be hard for them to fend off competition from the Titans.

NFL POWER RANKINGS: Cowboys slip after losses vs. Chiefs

Falcons (-1) at Jaguars

The Falcons have been terrible in recent weeks against a couple of high-caliber opponents. They were outscored 68-3 against the Cowboys and Patriots and appear to be heading in the wrong direction after looking like an early playoff sleeper.

However, the Falcons play against the Jaguars in Week 12, and Jacksonville fits the profile of the teams Atlanta has beaten this year.

So far, the Falcons have pitched in on some of the NFL’s worst competitions. They have victories over the Giants, Jets, Dolphins and Saints. Three of the four teams rank in the bottom eight of Football Outsiders’ DVOA metrics, which “break down the entire season play-by-play, comparing the success of each game with the league average based on a number of variables, including down, distance, placement on the pitch, current score difference, quarter and opponent quality. “

In other words, it ranks how good certain defenses are relative to the rest of the league. And pretty much the victories the Falcons have are over teams with poor defense. Their only defeat to a team ranked in the bottom-12 of the DVOA came against Washington in a closely contested match.

Week Opponent DVOA ranking Result
1 vs. Eagles 12 L, 32-6
2 at Buccaneers 1 L, 48-25
3 at the Giants 25 W, 17-14
4 against Washington 24 L, 34-30
5 vs. Jets 31 W, 27-20
7 by dolphins 27 W, 30-28
8 vs. Panthers 19 L, 19-13
9 at Saints 9 W, 27-25
10 at the Cowboys 4 L, 43-3
11 vs. Patriots 3 L, 25-0

Where does Jacksonville rank in terms of DVOA? They check in at No. 28 in the NFL, and they have an average of only 1.8 sacks per game. match, which is good for the sixth few sacks in the NFL. That should give Matt Ryan enough time to play in his pocket and win a win.
