    The largest favorite to cover
    Saints (-7) vs. Eagles, 48-7

    Marching Saints

    -- The New Orleans Saints treated the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints by a 48-7 score, the worst loss by the Eagles this season. It was also the worst loss in NFL history by a defending champ, too. The Saints are looking championship caliber lately, winning nine straight since an inexplicable opening-day loss to the lowly Tampa Bay Buccaneers and they have covered eight in a row dating back to Week 2. They have also rolled up 30 or more points in four straight, and seven of the past eight contests.

    Bronco Bucks

    -- The Los Angeles Chargers had been on quite the roll, but an old friend dropped them down a peg. The rival Denver Broncos caught the Bolts napping late, rallying for a 23-22 victory. It snapped a six-game win streak for the Broncos dating back to Sept. 23 against the crosstown Los Angeles Rams, and it was their first loss of the season straight-up against a losing team. The 'under' has connected in four in a row for the Bolts. As far as the Broncos, they were the biggest 'dog on the board on Sunday, and they won for just the second time in the past eight outings since a 2-0 SU start. Denver is suddenly a favorite at the betting window, going 4-1 ATS over the past five.

    Total Recall

    -- The highest total on the board (57) was the Philadelphia-New Orleans battle, but the Eagles killed 'over' tickets with a paltry seven points. The Saints did their best to help bettors, but the 'under' ended up just coming in. The second-highest total (54) on the board was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers-New York Giants, and the Bucs were back to their high-scoring and many point allowing ways after a defensive moment last weekend. The 'over' is now 8-2 in 10 games overall for the Bucs, including a perfect 6-0 on the road.

    -- On Thursday night, the Green Bay Packers-Seattle Seahawks (49.5) battle snuck over the total, as did Sunday's primetime battle between the Minnesota Vikings-Chicago Bears (44). In fact, if ESPN's Scott Van Pelt did a "Bad Beats" segment for the NFL, the SNF game would definitely be featured. Minnesota scored a touchdown with :48 remaining in regulation to turn a sure 'under' into an 'over' result, even so barely.

    -- The lowest total on the board was the battle between the Oakland Raiders-Arizona Cardinals (41), and a game-winning field goal at the end of regulation gave the Raiders a 23-21 win, changing a push at most shops into an over result. The other game with a total of 41, the Houston Texans-Washington Redskins ironically ended up with a 23-21 score, too.

    -- This week saw just four games on Sunday with a total over 50, and only one hit the 'over'. That was the Bucs-Giants game. The Monday night battle between the Kansas City Chiefs-Los Angeles Rams (63) might close with the highest total ever.

    -- The 'over' went 2-0 in the first two primetime games in Week 11, with the Monday night game between the Chiefs-Rams (63) still pending. Overall for the 2018 season the 'over' in primetime games is 18-15 (54.5%).

    Officially, the 'over' finished 25-23-1 (52.1%) in 49 games under the lights in 2017.

    In 2016, the 'over' in night games went (52.9%) through 51 games.

    In 2015, the over finished 20-28-1 (41.7%) in 49 primetime games.

    In 2014, the over went 33-17 (66.0%) in primetime games, and the over was 28-22 (56.0%) in 2013.

    Injury Report

    -- Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard (ankle) was forced out of Sunday's loss against the Giants and he was unable to return.

    -- Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) checked out of Sunday's win against the Panthers with what is believed to be a knee sprain, although he'll have an MRI on Monday just to be certain.

    -- Raiders WR Brandon LaFell (Achilles') suffered a ruptured Achilles' tendon in the win against the Cardinals and he is done for the season.

    -- Redskins QB Alex Smith (leg) broke both his fibula and tibia in Sunday's 23-21 loss against the Texans and he is obviously out for the season.

    -- Titans QB Marcus Mariota (elbow) checked out of Sunday's loss in Indianapolis and he was unable to return.

    Looking Ahead

    -- The Bears look to carve up the Lions on Thanksgiving Day in Motown. Chicago has covered four in a row inside the division, and they're 6-1 ATS in the past seven against teams with a losing record. They're also 9-3-1 ATS in the past 13 in the month of November. However, Chicago is a dismal 1-6 ATS in their past seven appearances on Thursday. The Lions have posted a 5-2 ATS mark across their past seven appearances on Thursday. The Bears are 3-1-1 ATS in the past five meetings, including a 34-22 win against the Lions on Nov. 11 in Chitown. However, the Bears are just 2-6 ATS in their past eight trips to Detroit.

    -- The Redskins enter 5-1 ATS in the past six overall, and they're 16-5 ATS in the past 21 following a straight-up loss. But they will have QB Colt McCoy under center after Smith's season-ending injury. The Cowboys enter 4-11 ATS in the past 15 against winning teams, and 2-8 ATS in the past 10 appearances on Thursday. However, they're 5-1 ATS in the past six inside the division. They have struggled against the 'Skins, though, going just 2-9 ATS in their past 11 at home vs. Washington. The road team is 2-7 ATS in the past nine meetings, and the underdog is an impressive 31-10 ATS in the past 41 meetings.

    -- The Falcons limp into the dome just 2-6 ATS in the past eight overall and 1-4 ATS in their past five road outings. The Saints have covered eight in a row, they're 14-6 ATS in the past 20 inside the division and they're 11-5 ATS in the past 16 against losing squads. Atlanta is a dismal 2-5 ATS in the past seven trips to the Crescent City, too.

    -- The Browns head down I-71 to the Queen City to battle the Bengals. Cleveland is just 4-11-1 ATS in the past 16 road games, and 5-15-1 ATS in the past 21 divisional games. The Bengals have covered five of the past six inside the division, including a straight-up loss but road cover against the Ravens in Week 11. The favorite has covered six in a row in this series, and Cleveland has failed to cover seven consecutive meetings.

    -- The Giants enter 3-1-1 ATS in the past five against losing teams, but just 2-5 ATS in the past seven inside the division. New York has covered four in a row on the road, however. The Eagles are just 2-7 ATS in the past nine overall, and 0-4 ATS in the past four games at home. Philly could get well at home, however, as the Giants are just 6-14-1 ATS in the past 21 against the Eagles. The 'over' has hit in six straight meetings, too.

    -- For whatever reason, the Jets have had the number of the Patriots lately. New England is just 2-7-1 ATS in the past 10 meetings, and 0-5 ATS in their past five trips to New Jersey. The under is 4-0 in the past four meetings, too.

    -- The Packers head to Minnesota with a 1-5-1 ATS mark over the past seven on the road, and they're just 1-4 ATS in the past five divisional games. The Vikings are 5-2 ATS in the past seven home meetings with their rivals. The under is also a perfect 4-0 in the past four meetings in this series.

    -- The Titans and Texans do battle on Monday night deep in the heart of Texas. Tennessee loves Monday Night Football, covering in seven straight MNF battles. They're also 6-1 ATS in the past seven inside the division. The Texans aren't as big a fan of MNF, going 2-10 ATS in their past 12 appearances. The 'under' is 6-0 in Tennessee's past six inside the division, while the under is 5-2 in Houston's past seven vs. AFC South foes.

    Saints' opening odds draw quick cash in NFL Week 12 contest vs. Falcons
    Patrick Everson

    Drew Brees has New Orleans on a nine-game SU and eight-game ATS streak, with Atlanta up next on Thanksgiving night. The Saints opened 12-point home favorites and were quickly bet up to 13.

    Week 12 of the NFL season includes a trio of Thanksgiving games to supplement your holiday feast. We check in on the opening lines and early action for two Turkey Day pairings and two other noteworthy matchups, with insights from John Murray, director of The SuperBook at Westgate in Las Vegas.

    Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints (-12)

    New Orleans is both the immovable object and the unstoppable force, a winner of nine in a row SU and eight consecutive ATS. In Week 11, the Saints (9-1 SU, 8-2 ATS) steamrolled defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia 48-7 as 7-point home favorites.

    Like New Orleans, Atlanta was in the playoffs last season, but Dan Quinn’s troops are going to need a big turnaround to get back there this season. The Falcons (4-6 SU, 3-7 ATS) rallied to tie Dallas at 19 late in the fourth quarter, but lost on a last-second field goal 22-19 as 3.5-point home faves in Week 11.

    “We opened the Saints -12, and we have already seen the number get pushed up to -13,” Murray said of very early action on this 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff Thanksgiving night. “The public will be hammering the Saints in this game. If both favorites win in the early games, there will be a ton of parlay liability to New Orleans on Thanksgiving night, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see this number go even higher.”

    Later Sunday evening, the line was down a tick to 12.5.

    Washington Redskins at Dallas Cowboys (-7.5)

    Dallas will play its traditional home game on Thanksgiving in a 4:30 p.m. ET start, in pursuit of its third straight victory. The Cowboys (5-5 SU and ATS) got the aforementioned last-second field goal to top Atlanta 22-19 as 3.5-point road underdogs in Week 11.

    Washington remains in first place in the NFC East, but is hardly comfortable in that spot. The Redskins (6-4 SU, 7-3 ATS) have lost two of their last three, including a 23-21 Week 11 setback to Houston as 3-point home pups.

    “There has been some early money on the Redskins +7.5, but we aren’t too worried about it, as we expect there to be a ton of support for the Cowboys in this game,” Murray said. “The book will need Washington by kickoff.”

    In fact, less than an hour after posting this game Sunday evening, The SuperBook moved Dallas to -8.

    Seattle Seahawks at Carolina Panthers (-3)

    Carolina was rolling along nicely at 6-2 SU, then got hit with back-to-back road losses the past two weeks. In Week 11, the Panthers (6-4 SU, 5-5 ATS) were laying 4 points at Detroit and tumbled outright 20-19.

    Seattle ended a two-game skid in Week 10 to get to .500 and keep itself on the fringe of the NFC playoff picture. The Seahawks (5-5 SU, 5-3-2 ATS) trailed Green Bay most of the way in the Week 11 Thursday nighter, but came away with a 27-24 victory to push as 3-point home faves.

    Murray said this 1 p.m. ET Sunday tilt drew action on both sides shortly after posting.

    “Right away, we took money on the Panthers -3 and moved to -3 (-120), at which point more money showed up,” Murray said, noting the number then moved to 3.5. “A guy took Seahawks +3.5 right away for $15,000, and we went back to 3. But we weren’t there long, because the market was going up, so we moved to 3.5.

    “Seattle is off a good win over the Packers and will have three extra days to prepare for this game.”

    Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings (-4.5)

    Green Bay has dropped three of its last four games to fall into must-win mode for the Week 12 Sunday night matchup. The Packers (4-5-1 SU and ATS) led much of the way at Seattle in the Week 11 Thursday nighter, but came up short 27-24 as 3-point road ‘dogs.

    Minnesota couldn’t take advantage of an opportunity to move into first place in the NFC North. Playing in the Week 11 Sunday nighter, the Vikings (5-4-1 SU and ATS) fell short at Chicago 25-20 catching 2.5 points.

    “We opened it Vikings -4.5 and haven’t seen any money either way,” Murray said, noting the line was taken off the board once the Vikes-Bears game kicked off, and it will repost Monday morning. “This number may change a lot, depending on the outcome of that game.”

    Hot & Not Report


    Week of November 19th

    Last week's focus on the teams in two of the divisions from the AFC brought mixed results in Week 11 as we did see a few of those division rivals square off with one another.

    Over in the AFC South, the teams not named Jacksonville did as bad as they possibly could against the spread (1-2) with Tennessee and Indy squaring off. The Jaguars themselves continued to find ways to lose games this year as they coughed up a double-digit 4th quarter lead to Pittsburgh, effectively ending the Jags season and adding even more gun powder to an already explosive locker room waiting to commence with their mutiny.

    The AFC North teams not named Pittsburgh that had been struggling squared off as well with the Bengals and Ravens meeting for the 2nd time this season. Baltimore gave QB Lamar Jackson his first career start and he and the entire offense for Baltimore just imposed their will and ran the ball (54 times) down the Bengals throat. A 4-1 SU start for the Bengals has long been forgotten, and I know Bengals fans out there hope that they finally see HC Marvin Lewis' head on the chopping block sooner than later rather than always passing the buck off on his co-ordinators.

    This week I'm shifting my attention over to one specific NFC division where two specific teams are going in vastly different directions. On the surface it feels a bit like pointing out the obvious, but eventually with teams on extended good/bad runs like these two are, you've got to ask yourself if, and when the point spread numbers have caught up with them and it's time to go the other way. The answer to that question may or may not come this week, but it's something you should strongly consider when breaking down their respective games.

    Who's Hot

    New Orleans Saints – 9-0 SU (8-0 ATS last eight)


    It's obvious to anyone even slightly involved in NFL betting that the Saints have been the hottest team in the league for weeks now, so it's not like I'm uncovering anything interesting there. However, it's becoming clear that the oddsmakers are sick of getting beaten by the Saints each and every week as it's been a couple of weeks now where their point spread lines have spiked.

    After starting their 8-0 ATS run with an 43-37 OT win in Atlanta as +1.5 underdogs, the Saints spent the next five weeks being priced in the +3 to -5.5 range. It was only their MNF home game against Washington – where Drew Brees broke the passing yards record – that had the Saints lined as more than basically a FG favorite, and at the time those lines were loaded with value. They were +2.5 in a game @ Baltimore (24-23 win), -2.5 @ Minnesota the following week (30-20 win) and closed at +1.5 at home against the Rams a few weeks ago (45-35 win). It was that win over the Rams that sparked a dramatic shift into how the Saints started to get priced though, and in the two games since it still hasn't mattered.

    After beating LA, the Saints – in a natural letdown spot off that huge win – were all of a sudden laying six points on the road against a Bengals team that had two weeks to prepare. Granted, the Bengals defense has been atrocious for the better part of six weeks now and Brees and company tore them to shreds in the 51-14 win. Result aside, to have New Orleans laying -6 on the road after they hadn't been bigger than -3.5 road favorites all year (@ NY Giants) was quite the shift and it still proved to be nowhere near enough.

    Then this past week, New Orleans was bet up all the way to -9 at home against the struggling defending champs from Philly, and while Philly did receive some support late to close that line at -7, the game was decided very early in another blowout win for New Orleans (48-7). To see the Eagles get the support they did late to push that line down to a TD suggests that many are starting to see value in fading New Orleans at these inflated prices, yet so far, it still hasn't mattered.

    And now we get the cycle going back to where it began, with a huge NFC South division game against the Falcons. The Saints are now on a short week in hosting Atlanta on TNF on Thanksgiving and have been pegged as a -13 favorite currently. It's getting to the point that tf the Saints were a traditional stock on Wall Street, there would be plenty of talk about them being in “bubble” territory and days away from bursting at these extreme valuations. But this is football and the eye test basically tells everyone it's impossible to step in front of New Orleans now and the oddsmakers are playing off that perception with these huge lines.

    After all, this is an Atlanta team that took the Saints to OT way back at the beginning of this run and at 4-6 SU entering Week 12 are left fighting for their season and playoff possibilities this week. Atlanta's defense has been ravaged by injuries for most of the year, but offensively they won't be scared to go toe-to-toe with New Orleans on Thursday and let the chips fall where they may.

    So before you do settle in to watch what should be a great nightcap to your Thanksgiving festivities on Thursday, you've got to ask yourself, do you believe this is a fair line to be backing New Orleans at?

    Who's Not

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 1-7 SU (1-6-1 ATS)


    On the flip side of the coin in the NFC South are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They are a team that can't seemingly get out of their own way most times as they continually turn the ball over each week, putting their defense in brutal scenarios and coming up just short quite often. Their lone SU win over that eight-game stretch was an OT win over the Browns, and their lone ATS win was a backdoor cover against the aforementioned Bengals who I've already touched on in this piece.

    What's probably the most maddening to bettors about Tampa Bay is the fact that statistically the numbers are there for them to have much better results than they've showed. Granted, you can't handicap turnovers and that's been the Bucs biggest issue this year, but they rank 4th in the NFL in terms of yards per play (6.7), a number that's ahead of New Orleans (6.4) of all teams, and trailing only the Chargers, Rams and Chiefs. Those four teams are going to be a combined 35-7 SU entering Week 12, and yet here are the Bucs at 3-7 SU and on money-burning 1-6-1 ATS run with both the ATS win and push coming as backdoor “covers” late.

    Tampa Bay is like the bizzaro-world Saints in that regard as oddsmakers know the eye test/perception have the majority of bettors not needing too many reasons to fade the Bucs, but statistically the numbers are there of an elite offense with a suspect defense – aka the New Orleans Saints. With statistical models being the basis for all initial point spreads put out there, oddsmakers keep putting out short numbers with the Bucs and keep getting burned by their inability to hold onto the ball (-23 turnover margin). It's gotten to the point where you can't even say that the turnovers will eventually even themselves out in Tampa's case because it's been 10 weeks of action now and it only gets worse every week.

    Yet, as the Bucs host a rested San Francisco team in Week 12, the current line of -3.5 on Tampa is likely going to see more action against it than on it because of how bad the Bucs have looked the past two months. That makes the Bucs are a case in my eyes where their ATS records should flip around sooner rather than later as long as the offense can continue moving the ball like they have. They continue to be undervalued from a numbers perspective because of the turnovers and poor ATS run, and while it may not come this week as home favorites, with games against Carolina, New Orleans, and Baltimore upcoming, this Tampa team should be catching plenty of points to be worth serious consideration against the spread. They've just got to find a way to protect the ball.

Jags lost four of last six visits to western NY. Six of last eight Buffalo games stayed under the total. Non-contending team from Florida playing in Buffalo after Thanksgiving? No thanks.

    Opening Line Report - Week 12
    Joe Williams

    We're heading into the fourth quarter of the National Football League regular season, but many fans won't soon forget the Monday nighter between the Kansas City Chiefs-Los Angeles Rams. The two teams combined for 105 points, the highest-scoring MNF game ever, and the third-highest scoring game in NFL history. It's a new day and age of football, with the games resembling video-game football, or college football. Some fans love it, old school fans hate it. Bettors are still trying to figure out what's what. The Chiefs-Rams game closed with the highest total (63) since those sorts of things have been tracked, and it was just second time a game closed over 60 points. This is the first time the total went 'over' when that high, too.

    We're headed into a good time in the season, with three NFL games on Thursday due to Thanksgiving. Can you believe the holiday season is officially here? Hopefully everyone has safe travels and a great Thanksgiving with family, friends, etc. Let's get started!

    Thursday, Nov. 22

    Chicago Bears (-4, 45) at Detroit Lions


    These teams just met on Nov. 11 in Chicago with the Bears covering a seven-point number at home, 34-22. The Bears have covered four in a row heading into this battle, but QB Mitch Trubisky (shoulder) is reportedly dealing with an injury, so that's something to watch heading into Thursday's game. The total has been on the move down, going from 46 to 45 in the matter of hours at Atlantis.

    Washington Redskins at Dallas Cowboys (-7.5, 40.5)

    The Redskins lost QB Alex Smith to a gruesome leg injury, as he snapped his fibula and tibia. Not only is he out for the season, but it's no certainty he'll be back. The line opened at -7 at Jerry's Nugget, moving up to -7.5. That seems to be the sweet spot right now, as Southpoint and Stratosphere opened the game at -8, and dropped it to -7.5.

    Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints (-13.5, 59.5)

    This game opened and has stayed -13 at most shop, with Westgate SuperBook opening the game at -12, before it quickly moved up to -13. The total is on the move, too, going from 59 to 60 according to CG Technology. It's likely to eclipse the 60-point barrier, perhaps the third time in NFL history a line closed over 60. It would also be the second time in two weeks this season. Again, it's a new day, and this isn't your grandfather's NFL.

    Sunday, Nov. 25

    Jacksonville Jaguars (-3, 37.5) at Buffalo Bills

    The Jaguars announced they're sticking with QB Blake Bortles. BetOnline.ag opened the game at -5, and it quickly moved to -4 within an hour, and is now down to -3 as of Tuesday overnight. That's about where the Vegas shops have this game, as a majority have the game at a field goal, with the likes of Mirage-MGM, Southpoint and Stations have the game at -3 1/2. The total has not had any movement at any of the Vegas shops as of yet, staying at 37 1/2, or the opposite of the Chiefs-Rams on Monday.

    Oakland Raiders at Baltimore Ravens (-11, 42.5)

    The Raiders picked up a much-needed win last week in Arizona despite squabbling by head coach Jon Gruden and QB Derek Carr. Now, they search for a second consecutive victory on the road. If you shop around the line can vary on this one. Atlantis opened the game at -10 1/2, while Caesars/Harrah's opened the game at -11 1/2, dropping down a half-point during the course of Monday. Westgate SuperBook is down from an open of -11, and briefly up to -11 1/2, down to -10 1/2 in less than 24 hours.

    San Francisco 49ers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-3.5, 55)

    The Buccaneers have dropped seven of their past eight outings, and they're just 1-6-1 ATS during the span. The 'over' is 8-2, too, so there might be a lot of interest in this one despite the two teams plodding along with losing records. If you're really feeling the home team, you can catch -3 at Treasure Island. BetOnline.ag opened the game at 52 1/2, and the money poured in, bumping it quickly to 54, as high as 55 1/2, and back down to 55. Look for more movement during the course of the week.

    New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles (-6, 46)

    The Eagles were curb-stomped down in New Orleans, now they look to take out their frustration on the Giants. New York has actually won two in a row, showing signs of life for the first time this season. Caesars/Harrah's opened the game at -5 and it moved to -6 in the matter of an afternoon. If you're still feeling the Eagles, TI still had the game at -5 as of Tuesday overnight.

    Cleveland Browns at Cincinnati Bengals (-3, 47.5)

    The Browns and Bengals combined for 106 back on Nov. 28, 2004, which is the second-highest scoring game in NFL history, just ahead of Monday's Chiefs-Rams game. The teams also combined for 96 points in 2007 in the Ohio Bowl. This year Vegas isn't expecting quite as many fireworks. In fact, there has been very little movement to this point, staying put at 47 1/2 at most shops.

    New England Patriots (-9.5, 46) at New York Jets

    The Patriots roll into New Jersey after a bye, but this has been a tough spot for New England. The Patriots are 0-5 ATS in the past five trips to visit the Jets, and they're just 2-7-1 ATS in the past 10 meetings. The home team is 6-0-1 ATS in the past seven in this series, too, with the 'under' cashing in four straight meetings. The Strat opened the game at -8 1/2, moving to -9 1/2 in less than 24 hours.

    Seattle Seahawks at Carolina Panthers (-3.5, 47.5)

    The Panthers dropped the ball in Detroit, losing a 20-19 decision after going for two and failing in the final minute. Now, they return home to face the Seahawks, who travel a long way to be there. Bettors appears to be buying the Cats, especially at Westgate SuperBook, going from -3 to -3 1/2, as well as at William Hill. There just hasn't been a lot of movement yet, but most are feeling a rebound from QB Cam Newton and company at home.

    Miami Dolphins at Indianapolis Colts (-10, 50.5)

    The Dolphins are coming off a bye, and there is a little uncertainty here as QB Ryan Tannehill could be back from injury. QB Andrew Luck has tossed three or more touchdowns in seven straight games, as he is officially back. The line has settled into the neighborhood of -9 1/2 at a lot of shops, while rising to -10 at Atlantis, Coasts and Mirage-MGM, but due to Tannehill's situation the line could be on the move.

    Arizona Cardinals at Los Angeles Chargers (-12, 45)

    This Cardinals were dumped at home by the Raiders at the gun, while the Chargers were stunned by the Broncos at home. The Bolts look to rebound and bettors have been feeling them a little. Jerry's Nugget opened the game at -11 1/2, and it's up to -12 there. Southpoint opened at -11 1/2, and it quickly rose to -12 1/2 during the course of the afternoon. The Strat, TI and Westgate also bumped up the game a half-point, as the money comes in on the Chargers early on.

    Pittsburgh Steelers (-3, 46.5) at Denver Broncos

    The Steelers won a squeaker in Jacksonville at sea level, now go a mile high in Denver against a Broncos team coming off an upset win of the Chargers. There is some early movement on the home team, as Caesars/Harrah's, Golden Nugget, Jerry's Nugget, Southpoint and the Strat opened the game at -3 1/2, but it slipped to -3. Westgate opened the game at -4 1/2, and it's now in line with everyone else at -3. People are feeling the Broncos early on.

    Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings (-3.5, 47.5)

    The Packers-Vikings were flexed into the Sunday Night Football spot, and it's an important game in the NFC North. These teams tied in the first meeting in Green Bay in September. There has been a lot of movement early on, and bettors seem to like the Pack. Southpoint opened the game at -4 1/2, and the line quickly tumbled to -3 1/2. The same holds true at Westgate and William Hill, moving down a full point to - 3 1/2 within 24 hours, too.

    Monday, Nov. 26

    Tennessee Titans at Houston Texans (-6, 41.5)


    The Titans and Texans have a tough act to follow after Monday's epic offensive showcase in L.A. But there will be a return to normalcy, as this game has a total 22 points less than the close of last week's game. That's insane, as more than three fewer touchdowns are expected in this AFC South showdown. BetOnline.ag is offering this game at -6, but it's one of just a few places to make the game available. QB Marcus Mariota is a question mark, and the game is OFF at many Vegas shops until there is some clarity on that situation.

    Games to Watch - Week 12

    The Monday night game set the bar for the rest of the season, with the LA Rams outgunning the Kansas City Chiefs in a 54-51 thriller. We are not likely to see a game that entertaining for quite some time, but there are still some big match-ups on the NFL calendar for Week 12 of the season. We are now getting to the point where time is beginning to run out for the teams currently sitting below the playoff line.

    There are a number of teams who are now just a loss or two away from seeing their season effectively come to an end, and we will feature a couple of those teams here. Let’s get to our picks for the best games in Week 12 of the NFL season.

    Atlanta Falcons (+525) at New Orleans Saints (-700)

    Thursday is Thanksgiving Day, which means that we have not one but three games on tap for the holiday. The pick of the bunch is the evening game, with the Atlanta Falcons going on the road looking to keep their season alive with a win in New Orleans.

    The Falcons are 4-6 on the season and in real danger of missing the playoffs, but they are not going to get any sympathy from their division rivals. The Saints are rolling right now, winning 9 in a row and looking like the team to beat in the NFL. I like New Orleans to hit double-digit wins on Thursday.

    Seattle Seahawks (+155) at Carolina Panthers (-175)

    This is a game with some huge playoff implications, as there is the possibility that these two could swap positions depending on the final outcome. The Carolina Panthers have lost 2 in a row and are now down in 5th spot in the NFC.

    The chances of them climbing higher seem slim given that the Saints are running away with the division. They could slip under the playoff line this weekend with a loss here, as the Seahawks are sitting just outside the playoffs in the #7 spot. I have been going back and forth on this one for a couple of days now, but I am giving the Panthers the edge at home.

    Pittsburgh Steelers (-165) at Denver Broncos

    To become a Super Bowl champion, teams need to find ways to win games where they play well below their best. The Steelers signaled their championship intent with a gritty come from behind win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 11. That game looked dead and buried late in the third quarter before the Steelers offense finally got rolling.

    They are going to need to be good again this Sunday against a Denver team coming off a big win over the L.A. Chargers. This will not be an easy one for Pittsburgh, but I do think they get the win.

    Green Bay Packers (+160) at Minnesota Vikings (-180)

    The way things are going right now, there is a very good chance that at least one of these teams will not be playing in the postseason. Neither one has lived up to preseason expectations, and both are now trailing the Chicago Bears in the NFC North.

    Right now, it is the Vikings who are clinging to the final playoff spot in the NFC, with the Packers lurking just below the line. While neither team has been at their best this season, I think the Vikings are going to be very tough to beat at home.

    LaFELL HEADS TO IR

    The Raiders placed receiver Brandon LaFell on injured reserve after Oakland’s latest No. 1 receiver suffered a torn Achilles tendon against Arizona on Sunday. Martavis Bryant will also be out in Week 12, although coach Jon Gruden said on Monday that Jordy Nelson “has a chance” to return this week as the Raiders travel to Baltimore. Seth Roberts will continue to start at receiver and Marcell Ateman will likely see his fair share of snaps in Week 12 as he posted four catches for 50 yards in LaFell’s absence on Sunday.

    Oakland’s receiver situation is an absolute mess and, predictably, it has negatively affected Derek Carr’s performance. Even in a win at Arizona on Sunday, Carr threw for just 192 yards on 19-of-31 passing, though we enjoyed the performance as we got a winner with the Under on his passing yards total. Carr has now thrown for under 200 yards in three of his last five games and faces one of his toughest tests of the season in Week 12 as the Raiders travel east for an early start against a Ravens defense that ranks fifth in DVOA and most recently held Andy Dalton to 211 yards on 36 attempts. Fade Carr until further notice and take the Under on his passing yards total for Week 12.


    BUCS GO BACK TO WINSTON

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are expected to turn back to Jameis Winston as the starting quarterback after the Week 6-8 starter came on in relief of a struggling Ryan Fitzpatrick on Sunday and threw for 199 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception on 12-of-16 passing. Winston’s efforts led a spirited Bucs comeback that fell just short, but it was good enough to earn him the start — at least for this week. Ultimately, it seems that the Bucs are just happy to ride the hot hand for the remainder of the season.

    Winston was inconsistent in his three-game stint as the starter earlier this season, putting in great, average, and terrible performances (in that order). He looked solid on Sunday however, and is in a great spot this week as the Bucs host the 49ers as a 3.5-point favorite and with a game total of 55. The Bucs feature the league’s top passing offense at 361 passing yards per game and you can be sure that Winston will be airing it out all afternoon against a Niners defense that is below average in defending the pass at 21st in passing DVOA. We’re taking the Over on Winston’s passing yards total.


    KJ OUT FOR THANKSGIVING

    Reports out of Detroit on Monday are that running back Kerryon Johnson is out for Thursday’s Thanksgiving game against Chicago. Johnson could miss multiple games after suffering a sprained knee on Sunday against Carolina, although the injury isn’t thought to be season-ending. The Lions will go with some combination of LeGarrette Blount, Theo Riddick, and Zach Zenner at running back when they host the Bears.

    Chicago features the top overall defense in DVOA and the second best rushing defense using the same metric, so we’re staying far away from Blount and Zenner. But Riddick has come on as of late in his pass-catching role, getting 52 percent of the snaps since he returned from injury in Week 9 and has hauled in five, six, and seven catches over that time frame. Johnson has been averaging 42.6 snaps per game over his past five and Riddick should see his fair share of those, especially as a four-point home underdog. We’re taking the Over 4.5 on his receptions total for Thursday.


    JAGS STICKING WITH BORTLES

    Despite his struggles, Jacksonville won’t bench Blake Bortles. At least not yet. Coach Doug Marrone confirmed that Bortles will start in Week 12 as the Jaguars head to Buffalo on Sunday. It appears, however, that Marrone is losing confidence in his starting quarterback as Bortles only attempted 18 passes in Sunday’s loss to Pittsburgh. Yes, the Jags played with the lead for most of the game but there were multiple opportunities late in the game where a first down could have sealed a win and, instead of letting Bortles throw for it, the Jaguars were content to run the ball into the Steelers’ defensive wall.

    Marrone seems to have figured out that his best chance of winning is by running the ball over and over again with Leonard Fournette, Carlos Hyde, and T.J. Yeldon and he did just that on Sunday with 43 rushing attempts — 28 for Fournette. On Sunday, the Jags head to Buffalo to take on a defense that ranks first against the pass in DVOA but 11th against the rush. To put that into perspective, Fournette ran for 95 yards against a Steelers unit that is ranked 10th against the rush. Volume alone makes Fournette a candidate to have a big game on Sunday at Buffalo as he should see upwards of 27-30 carries once again and we’re taking the Over on his rushing yards total.


    GRAHAM TO TOUGH IT OUT

    Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy told the media on Monday that tight end Jimmy Graham will “try to play” through the broken thumb he suffered last Thursday in Seattle. There is no guarantee that he will suit up, as the Packers’ medical staff will experiment with different splints and protections that will allow him to catch the ball. It doesn’t sound like an ideal situation but Green Bay is facing a must-win on Sunday night as it visits Minnesota, so Graham will do what he can this week to be on the field.

    Should Graham suit up for Sunday Night Football, we’ll be looking to fade him. The injury situation alone would be grounds to stay away as catching a ball with a broken finger and some sort of splint/cast situation will be difficult enough. But there’s also the fact that the Packers face a tough matchup against a Vikings defense that allowed Bears tight end Trey Burton just one catch for nine yards last week. Graham’s usage has also been down as of late. He had just one catch last week as he was forced to leave the game with the injury, but he also had just one catch in two of his last three games before that. Rodgers has plenty of other options to throw to and we doubt he’ll be relying too much on a tight end with a broken finger. We’re taking the Under on Graham’s receptions total.

    GREEN LIGHT FOR A.J.?

    Reports out of Cincinnati late on Tuesday stated that A.J. Green has a “good chance” of playing against Cleveland this weekend. Green has missed the last two games with a toe injury and the Bengals struggled without him in back-to-back losses. At 5-5, Cincy’s season hangs in the balance and if Green can manage the pain, he’ll be on the field.

    While it might be best to take a wait-and-see approach with Green, especially if it sounds like he’s being rushed back, his return should create a little breathing space for Tyler Boyd. The third-year receiver is enjoying a breakout year as the Bengals’ slot man but injuries forced him into the WR1 role in Green’s absence. Boyd has struggled with the added attention that comes with top-receiver status, catching just 4-of-11 targets last week against the Ravens and had just 3 catches against the Saints two weeks ago. With all the injuries that the Bengals have suffered at the pass-catching positions, teams have double teamed Boyd. When Green returns, he’ll command the double teams and Boyd will be able to do his thing out of the slot once again. We’re taking the Over for Boyd's receptions total on Sunday as the Bengals host the Browns.


    TANNEHILL SET TO RETURN

    Dolphins coach Adam Gase announced on Tuesday that Ryan Tannehill will return as the starting quarterback for their Week 12 game at Indianapolis. Tannehill will be making his first start since Week 5 and will be an upgrade over Brock Osweiler, albeit a slight one. He wasn’t very good earlier in the season before his injury, averaging just 194.4 passing yards per game with a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 8:5. Since he last played, the Dolphins have lost receivers Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant, while DeVante Parker is questionable after being a non-contact participant in practice on Tuesday.

    Alhough we’re never thrilled with backing someone like Tannehill, we have to consider the game script for this weekend. The Dolphins have been terrible of late and have only managed to be competitive against the Jets over their last four games. The Colts are a nine-point home favorite and there’s a good chance that they get a big lead early, just like they did against the Titans last week and the Jaguars two weeks ago. When that happens, Tannehill will be forced to air it out, much like Blake Bortles did two weeks ago when he threw for 320 yards against Indy. The Colts are not great against the pass with a defense that is ranked 23rd in passing DVOA. We expect the Colts to get up big and for Tannehill to rack up the passing yards as the Dolphins attempt to make a comeback. Take the Over for his passing yards total.


    BILLS WELCOME ALLEN BACK

    Buffalo coach Sean McDermott announced that quarterback Josh Allen will return on Sunday as the Bills host the Jaguars. The rookie has been out since suffering an elbow injury in Week 6 and since then Buffalo has used Derek Anderson, Nathan Peterman, and Matt Barkley under center. Allen’s return should finally provide the Bills with some consistency at quarterback for the remainder of the season.

    There are a couple of things that we can take away from Allen’s starts from Weeks 1-6. First, he’s not ready to throw the ball at the NFL level yet. He’s averaging just 138.7 passing yards per game and had three games, including his last two, where he failed to reach the 100-yard mark. Second, he loves to run the ball, especially in the red zone where he had 11 rushing attempts for 59 yards that resulted in three touchdowns through his first five starts. Allen has a very tough matchup in his first game back against Jacksonville’s defense that ranks sixth in DVOA. We recommend the Under on Allen’s passing yards total but will also be sprinkling a little money on him to score a touchdown at any time in what should pay out at around +700.


    HOWARD PLACED ON IR

    Tampa Bay got some devastating news on Tuesday when O.J. Howard was placed on injured reserve with foot and ankle injuries that he suffered on the same play against the Giants last week. He’ll be replaced in the starting lineup by Cameron Brate. It’s a huge loss for the Bucs as Howard was having a really nice season, especially of late as he was averaging 3.8 catches for 57.2 yards per game over his last six.

    Brate has been mostly irrelevant this season but has a nice chance to deliver a big performance on Sunday as the Buccaneers take on the 49ers. That matchup has an Over/Under currently set at 54.5, which is the highest total for Sunday’s slate. The Niners aren’t a great matchup for tight ends as they rank 22nd in DVOA against the position and are allowing 6.9 passes per game to the position for 49.3 yards. Still, Tampa Bay is the league’s No. 1 passing offense which immediately gives him value as the team’s top receiving threat from the position. We recommend taking the Over 3.5 on his receptions total for Sunday.

    NFL Underdogs: Week 12 pointspread picks and predictions
    Jason Logan

    Thanksgiving – outside of the Super Bowl – is the biggest “public” betting day on the NFL schedule. Everyone is off, everyone is home, and everyone has at least one bet down on the traditional football matchups.

    Since 2006, when the NFL added a third game to the Thanksgiving Day slate, the primetime kickoff (around 8 p.m. ET) has been the key to the holiday as far as bookies go. All parlays and teasers that survived the first two Thursday contests tie into the finale.

    Not only that, winnings from the afternoon starts are often rolled over into the night game and those feeling the sting in the first two offerings are chasing losses in that third matchup: the ole “Get even or get even deeper” game – like that third helping of mashed potatoes and gravy. You know you shouldn’t but, damn, it’s good.

    This Thursday, the sportsbooks face a “public perfect storm” in that third and final Thanksgiving Day game. The New Orleans Saints – the NFL’s hottest team and best bet (8-2 ATS) – are at home hosting the rival Atlanta Falcons in the Turkey Day finale.

    The spread opened as low as New Orleans -10 and immediately action poured in on the high-scoring Saints, moving this just under two touchdowns to -13.5 versus Atlanta (I predict it will go even higher by kickoff). New Orleans opened the 2018 campaign with two straight ATS losses but has since laid waste to any and all pointspreads put in its path, boasting an average margin of victory of 18 points in the last eight games.

    That display has the public drooling all over the Saints like the last piece of pumpkin pie. It also has bookmakers playing it safe with this spread, padding against that public onslaught with the points like the extra five pounds you’ll put on between Thursday and Sunday.

    The Falcons have dropped two in a row, watching its offense once again sputter, but Atlanta’s defense has quietly been improved after losing key contributors early in the season. There are a number of injuries stacking up on the Saints’ offensive line, with starters Max Unger, Andrus Peat, and Jermon Bushrod all listed as questionable for this short turnaround, and Terron Armstead still out until next month. The lynchpin to this potent Saints attack is its ability to keep Drew Brees clean, allowing the veteran QB to be sacked only nine times – fewest in the NFL.

    I do expect the Falcons to figure it out on offense. I do see them getting pressure on Brees behind what is, at best, an ailing offensive line. And I do like the value in a divisional rivalry on one of the biggest stages of the season, with bookmakers packing on the points to protect their asses.

    Pick:
    Atlanta +13.5

    San Francisco 49ers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-3.5, 54.5)

    Thanksgiving and dysfunctional families go hand-in-hand on the holiday, like peas and carrots. And there’s no franchise more dysfunctional than the Tampa Bay Buccaneers right now.

    The Bucs have a brutal game of musical chairs going with their quarterbacks on a weekly basis, with Ryan Fitzpatrick and Jameis Winston playing ping-pong with their piss-poor performances under center. That’s injected a lethal dose of poison into the locker room while also starting a bonfire under the office chair of Dirk Koetter, who will be lucky if he still has a job Monday. And we haven’t even touched on the team’s four-game losing skid or dead-last defense, giving up almost 33 points per game.

    How in the good gravy is this team giving 3.5 points Sunday? Sure, San Francisco only has one victory in its last eight games (coming against the Raiders, so call it half a win) and swaps coasts for an early 1 p.m. ET kickoff. But the Niners are coming off a bye week, giving Nick Mullens another extended period to work with the first teamers and allow head coach Kyle Shanahan to fold his strengths into the playbook.

    The week off also gives this roster time to heal after being plagued by injuries the past two months. Mullens could have some receiving options back in the mix, George Kittle continues to be a diamond in the rough at tight end, and RB Matt Breida isn’t just picking up big gains on the ground, emerging as a passing-catching back. And let's not forget the defense, which has allowed only 4.8 yards per play in its last three, albeit against Arizona, Oakland and the N.Y. Giants. Still, that's a hell of a lot better than what we've seen - or haven't seen - from the Bucs defensive group.

    Pick:
    San Francisco +3.5

    Tennessee Titans at Houston Texans (-6.5, N/A)

    This one is a roll of the dice, considering the uncertain status of Marcus Mariota but from everything coming out of Music City, it sounds like he’ll be good to go in Week 12. Having the extra rest for a Monday game can only help. Some books have this line off the board, waiting for an update, while others have posted Tennessee as big as a 6.5-point underdog.

    Mariota told head coach Mike Vrabel that he would be fine soon after suffering what is being called a “stinger” and touched on his health briefly during a radio spot with 104.5 The Zone in Nashville, saying his nerve issue should be resolved quickly. He even elaborated that he wouldn’t need to go back to wearing a glove on his throwing hand. That level of information makes me feel good about him suiting up for this AFC South grudge match.

    I’m buying the Titans low and selling Houston high with this pick. Tennessee looked fantastic in wins over Dallas and New England, and I’m not discounting the team too much for the loss to Indianapolis last week, falling into a classic letdown spot.

    The Texans have built their seven-game winning streak on the backs of bad and broken teams, including last Sunday’s win in Washington in which the Redskins were left with Colt McCoy under center after Alex Smith’s nasty broken leg.

    Houston may add an eighth straight win Monday but this spread is too much for the Texans to cover.

    Pick:
    Tennessee +6.5

    Last week: 2-1 ATS
    Season: 23-9-1 ATS
