NFL Week 12 Free Picks

Our nationally recognized team of expert nfl handicappers, the Spread Experts are back with their predictions for week 12 of the NFL. Handicappers Bill Young, John Martin and Larry Cook give you their three best bets for this week.

Bill Young

Take Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Quarterback Jeff Garcia is quietly having one of the best seasons of any quarterback in the league. With Favre, Brady and Romo tearing it up this is expected for him to go under the radar. Garcia is completing 65% of his passes and has thrown only 3 interceptions in 10 games. The Bucs are so tough to beat because they don’t beat themselves by turning the ball over. Tampa is only giving up 12.2 points a game at home this season, showcasing one of the best defenses in the league that nobody is talking about. The Redskins are giving up 25.8 points a game on the road. The Redskins are 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS win. The Bucs are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against NFC opponents. The Bucs are 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 games after scoring more than 30 points in their last game. Jeff Garcia and company will light it up Sunday. More From Bill

John Martin

Take Cleveland Browns

Cleveland is showing awesome value Sunday as a small home favorite. The Texans have won two straight games but who have they really played? They took on the Raiders and the Saints, two opponents that many teams would love to be facing this week. Cleveland is scoring 31.8 points a game at home this season. The Texans are giving up over 27 points a game on the road. Cleveland will get off to a big early lead and run away with this game at home. Houston is just 3-12 ATS coming off a home win. The Texans are only 1-8 ATS in road games after playing a game at home over the last 2 seasons. Cleveland is 8-2 ATS in all games this season and 6-0 ATS after allowing 30 or more points in a game this season. More From John

Larry Cook

Take Chicago Bears

The AFC may be the better conference this season, but that fact does not hold true in this series with the Bears and Broncos. Denver is just 4-14 ATS in their last 18 games against NFC North opponents. The Bears are an incredible 17-6 ATS in their last 23 games against AFC opponents. Chicago laying this small number at home is a gold mine Sunday. Chicago is 13-3 ATS in home games against good rushing teams that carry for 4.5 or more yards/attempt. The Bears’ defense will stop the run as they are accustomed to and put more pressure on Jay Cutler than he can handle Sunday. Bet Chicago at home. More From Larry
