NFL Week 12 Betting Odds Report
The Week 12 NFL slate kicks off on Thanksgiving Day with three matchups before rolling into another hectic Sunday of action. Here’s a look at the point spreads and totals for each matchup that have odds.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Lions opened as 3.5-point home underdogs to beat the first-place Bears at 12:30 p.m. ET to kickoff the Thanksgiving Day action. As is customary on Thanksgiving, the second game is in Dallas where the Cowboys will host the Redskins. After opening as a 4.5-point home favorite, the Cowboys are now -8 due to the injury to Washington QB Alex Smith. He was replaced by Colt McCoy in the team’s loss to the Texans on Sunday and now Washington will need to rely on its backup to make the playoffs in 2018.
The final game on Thanksgiving night could have been fantastic but given how dominant the Saints have been this season and how injury-ravaged the Falcons are, the Thanksgiving nightcap looks like a dud. New Orleans opened as 10-point home favorites but the line climbed to 12.5 at most books.
Moving to Sunday, the Panthers are 3.5-point home favorites to beat the Seahawks at 1:00 p.m. ET (47) while the Ravens are a 10.5-point favorite to beat the now two-win Raiders (N/A). The Bengals are also laying a field goal to the visiting Browns while the Giants are catching 5 points as an underdog in Philadelphia.
Also in the early action, the Bucs are 3.5-point home favorites versus the 49ers (55.5) and the Jets are catching 9.5 points to the visiting Patriots (46.5) with both teams coming off their bye. The Jaguars, after collapsing at home in a loss to the Steelers on Sunday, will visit the Bills at 1:00 p.m. ET and are laying 3.5 points on the road. It’s early, but Buffalo is actually receiving backing from public bettors this week.
Moving to the late action on Sunday, the Chargers are 11.5-point home favorites to beat the Cardinals (44.5) while the Broncos are a 3.5-point home underdog to the visiting Steelers (47.5) despite upsetting the Chargers on the road in Week 11. The Colts are also a 7.5-point home favorite to beat the Dolphins at 4:25 p.m. ET.
In the Sunday night game, the Vikings host the Packers in a NFC North Division matchup. Both teams continue to stare up at the Chicago Bears in the division and this will be a rematch of a game in Green Bay earlier this season when the two teams tied. The Vikings are 4.5-point home favorites in this one.
Finally, the 7-3 Texans host the Titans on “Monday Night Football.” Houston opened as a 5.5-point home favorite and that’s where the line currently sits.
