NFL Week 12 Opening Odds
(The Spread) – Here's a look at the top match ups in Week 12 in the NFL, along with the point spreads for every game this week.
In what schedule-makers probably assumed would be a marquee, prime-time match up between NFC South rivals, the hapless Falcons will host the Saints at 8:25PM ET on Thursday Night Football. While New Orleans is competing for a division title, Atlanta is competing to have a top-5 pick in next years draft. Despite being at home, the Falcons have opened as 7-point underdogs according to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv. The total is currently sitting at 52.5 points.
While the Thursday night game could be a dud, the Sunday night match up is the most promising on the Week 12 schedule. Peyton Manning and the Broncos will travel to Foxboro to take on Tom Brady and the Patriots, who have opened as 2.5-point home underdogs. The total, meanwhile, is currently sitting at 57 points in what oddsmakers clearly think could be a shootout.
Division rivals will square off in East Rutherford, NJ on Sunday afternoon when the Giants host the Cowboys. Left for dead when they started the season 0-6, the Giants have now won three in a row and are only two games back of the Eagles for first place in the NFC East. The Cowboys, meanwhile, have been inconsistent this season and are 3-point road underdogs this Sunday. The total is sitting at 46.5 points.
Rex Ryan and his current team will pay a visit to his former stomping grounds on Sunday when the Jets visit the Ravens at 1:00PM ET. The Jets have won every other game this season, which is a NFL record, but are 3.5-point road underdogs following yet another loss. The total for this game opened at 40.5 points.
