Early NFL Week 12 Bets to Place
The playoff chase is on as the season fully enters the second half. We have a good slate of games in Week 11, but it’s not too early to get a look at some of the odds for Week 12. Take a look at bets you might want to make sooner rather than later – including one of the Thanksgiving matchups.
Minnesota Vikings (-3.5) vs. New England Patriots
If you’re a believer in the Vikings, this is a line you might want to take advantage of. Minnesota made many new believers in last weekend’s thrilling win over the Bills. There will be even more believers if the Vikings can handle business at home against the Cowboys this weekend. A win over Dallas could and should move this line further in Minnesota’s direction.
The Patriots have a tough test against the Jets this weekend. While they were able to beat New York in October, the Jets’ defense is sure to give Mac Jones some problems. It’s far from a guarantee in this wild season, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this line settled in closer to Vikings -5.
Miami Dolphins (-10) vs. Houston Texans
The Dolphins continue to look better and better as Tua Tagovailoa gets more comfortable. The defense isn’t in its best form right now, but how much will that matter at home against the Texans? Houston has the NFL’s worst record at 1-7-1, and Davis Mills is 3-16-1 as a starter.
A Texans loss to the Commanders this weekend isn’t a guarantee, but it’s the most likely scenario. The Dolphins are on a bye, but with their powerful offense, it feels like this line might settle in closer to where Panthers vs. Ravens ended up (BAL -13). Dolphins by 10 at home is a strong value.
Baltimore Ravens (-4) vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
The Ravens appeared to be playing some of their best football of the season before the bye, so this line seems too narrow. The Jaguars don’t look like they have a serious home-field advantage, and the gap between these two teams is pretty large.
Baltimore has a favorable matchup this weekend against the Panthers. Assuming that’s a comfortable win for the Ravens, I would expect this line to move a little bit further in their direction. The line movement won’t be too dramatic with the Jaguars on their bye, but it feels like money will pour in on the Ravens considering Jacksonville has won one game (a comeback win over the Raiders) since the start of October.
Seattle Seahawks (-3.5) vs. Las Vegas Raiders
The Seahawks couldn’t keep their win streak going against the Buccaneers, but they looked fine against a decent team in a new environment. Geno Smith continued to play efficiently. The biggest difference was the running game’s lack of production. A home matchup against the Raiders after a bye seems like the perfect scenario for Seattle to bounce back.
This line could move if the Raiders continue to prove they’re not the team we thought they were. A close game or loss in Denver this weekend would be another sign that Josh McDaniels’ team isn’t getting back on track anytime soon. In that scenario, we could certainly see this line move in the direction of the Seahawks. Seattle’s last two home games were both double-digit wins.
