Week 12 is poised to be the most 2020 week yet in the NFL season. Due to covid, Steelers-Ravens has been pushed to Tuesday night with a reported 22 Ravens on the Covid/Restrictions list. The Broncos will take on the Saints sans a quarterback. It’s going to be a crazy week, but we’re thankful to have football.
Bears @ Packers Line: GB -8.5
Bears keep slipping after their unexpected hot start. Trubisky returns as starting quarterback which is good news for the Packers.
Pick: GB -8.5 Packers 28 Bears 17
Raiders @ Falcons Line: LV -3.0
The Raiders seem to always bring their A game when they play the Chiefs. They looked great in that loss last week. I think they ride that momentum against the Falcons.
Pick: LV -3.0 Raiders 26 Falcons 20
Chargers @ Bills Line: BUF -4.5
Chargers have been known to keep games close, but the Bills have so much potential on offense and I think they’ll capitalize against a developing Chargers team.
Pick: BUF -4.5 Bills 30 Chargers 23
Giants @ Bengals Line: NYG -6.0
Losing Joe Burrow is devastating for this young Bengals team. He was looking great and deserving of that number one pick. Bummer for the league as a joke honestly. He made watching this team at least a little interesting. That won’t be happening any more. I know I’ve said never to bet on the NFC East, but that changes today.
Pick: NYG -6.0 Giants 24 Bengals 13
Titans @ Colts Line: IND -3.0
I think these are two evenly matched team. Titans seem to be a little healthier right now so I’ll take them spotted 3 points.
Pick: TEN +3.0 Titans 24 Colts 21
Panthers @ Vikings Line: MIN -3.0
Panthers fresh off a shutout win…against the Lions. I expect the Vikings running game to come out with a win this week/
Pick: MIN -3.0 Vikings 21 Panthers 17
Cardinals @ Patriots Line: ARI -1.0
Only 1 point? I’ll take the Cardinals.
Pick: ARI -1.0 Cardinals 30 Patriots 20
Dolphins @ Jets Line: MIA -7.0
Rooting for Fitzpatrick to have a statement game after his surprise benching earlier in the season. He put up big numbers against them earlier in the season and is now armed with even more motivation than before. Bet.
Pick: MIA -7.0 Dolphins 21 Jets 10
Browns @ Jaguars Line: CLE -7.0
Expect the Browns to run all over the Jags.
Pick: CLE -7.0 Browns 24 Jaguars 14
Saints @ Broncos Line: NO -16.5
The Broncos don’t have a quarterback! Well, neither do the Saints…kind of…look, Hill proved to be okay last week against a terrible Falcons D. With a true QB I’d take the Broncos to cover this massive spread, but with a quarterback who has never taken a snap? I don’t know. I’m not comfortable betting on a team who doesn’t have a QB regardless of the spread.
Pick: NO -16.5 Saints 28 Broncos 10
49ers @ Rams Line: LAR -5.5
Rams looked great last week. The playoff push continues.
Pick: LAR -5.5 Rams 28 49ers 16
Chiefs @ Buccaneers Line: KC -3.5
Hard to bet against that offense. Tompa Bay remains too inconsistent and aren’t utilizing their weapons.
Pick: KC -3.5 Chiefs 24 Buccaneers 20
Seahawks @ Eagles Line: SEA -6.0
What is going on with the Philly QB situation? It’s chaos. I’ll go with the safe bet in Wilson and Seattle.
Pick: SEA -6.0 Seahawks 33 Eagles 17
Ravens @ Steelers Line: PIT -9.5
Will this game even be played? Who knows right how. However, if it is played, the Ravens will be short handed and without key players and that will make a difference. Steelers remain undefeated.
Pick: PIT -9.5 Steelers 28 Ravens 17
