We went a solid 2-1 on our picks ATS on Thursday. The Raiders pulled off the upset against the Cowboys and the Bills handled the Saints like we said they would. The Lions almost pulled off the upset for us but we still hit on the Lions +3. It was a great Thanksgiving, and I hope that everyone had a great time with their families and friends. Now for my week 12 picks…
This is one of the best games of the weekend in my opinion. The best RB in the league in Jonathan Taylor against the best running defense in the league is a matchup to get excited about. Taylor is averaging over 157 yards per game over the last three games and is coming off a 5 TD game. Brady is coming off an impressive 30-10 victory over the giants. This game should be close but I think that the Bucs defense is going to try and stop Taylor and make Carson Wentz win this game. Wentz has had a surprisingly good season but I don't think he does enough in this one to take it. The Buccaneers take it but it's close.
This is a good divisional matchup where the Broncos have taken 5 of the last 8 since the Chargers have moved to LA. However Justin Herbert has been very good this season on the road with a 3-1 record. The Chargers are coming off of another good road win against the Steelers in primetime. The Broncos are a very unpredictable team that seemingly shows up when they want too. The Chargers are simply the better team here and that should show come sunday. Take the spread, the Chargers will win by a touchdown or more.
Pick: Chargers -2.5
The Falcons have scored a whole 3 points TOTAL in their past 2 games. It is truly one of the worst showings of offense that I've seen over two straight games. Good thing that the Falcons are going against a team that hasn't scored more than 20 points at home this year. The Falcons are somehow favored in this game where there shouldn't even be a favorite in this game. I think the Falcons get back on track in this one, and put up more than 20 points, and win this one on the road.
Pick: Falcons -1
This is another battle for the bottom. Basically this game just has the meaning of who gets the first overall pick in the draft. The Texans got their QB back and pulled off a massive upset over the Titans last week when they were 10 point underdogs. The Texans have forced 5 turnovers in each of their past two games and the Jets have one of the worst turnover ratios in the league. I think that is the difference in this one. The Texans take it and cover the spread.
Pick: Texans -2.5
Steelers at Bengals - Pick: Bengals
Panthers at Dolphins - Pick: Panthers
Titans at Patriots - Pick: Patriots
Eagles at Giants - Pick: Eagles
Rams at Packers - Pick: Rams
Vikings at 49ers - Pick: 49ers
Browns at Ravens - Pick: Ravens
Seahawks at Football Team - Pick: Seahawks
