To help your handicapping endeavors, check out our comprehensive breakdown of all of Week 12's NFL picks.
The Buccaneers are on a little roll here, having won two straight games. Jason Lake thinks there's value to be had on them on the road against an inconsistent Lions team.
Pick: Buccaneers +10
It's hard to get too excited about picking the Texans after they failed to beat the Raiders at home last weekend. Jason Lake feels the same way and is on the OVER with his sports picks instead.
Pick: OVER 43.5
The Packers desperately miss Aaron Rodgers and have had to resort to using third-stringer Scott Tolzien due to Seneca Wallace's injury. Still, I do think Green Bay takes care of Minnesota at home this week.
Pick: Packers -4.5
While many expect the Chiefs to rebound after losing their first game of the season, I feel more comfortable in taking a betting odds total play. I like the UNDER in what I think could easily be a defensive battle.
Pick: UNDER 41.5
The Dolphins got a nice win last week, but Steve Merril feels like Carolina is the play here. He feels the Panthers are the way better team on both sides of the ball and that we'll see that proven true.
Pick: Panthers -4.5
Another total recommendation, this time in a divisional showdown between the Browns and Steelers. Points may very well be hard to come by, so Joe Freda's predicting the UNDER to cash.
Pick: UNDER 41.5
The Bears look like the better team on paper, but the Rams have been playing a lot better recently and are coming off their BYE week. Joe Freda likes St. Louis to win and cover.
Pick: Rams -1
Though the Jets have alternated wins and losses all throughout the season, I don't see that trend holding up here. The Ravens should be able to cruise past Geno Smith and the Jets in Week 12.
Pick: Ravens -3.5
Neither of these teams have been impressive, but one has to win and Swingin' Johnson believes it'll be the Raiders that get it done at home.
Pick: Raiders +1
Carson Palmer and the Cardinals have proven to be tough to beat at home, but the Colts have risen to many challenges already this season. Nonetheless, Swingin' Johnson has opted to go with Arizona.
Pick: Cardinals -2
A big game with many playoff implications here. The Giants have really turned the corner of late, but will they overcome the Cowboys in Week 12? Doug Upstone is picking Dallas to cover.
Pick: Cowboys +3
This is the game everyone's been waiting for. Peyton Manning and Tom Brady do battle once again and it's the Broncos that are favored on the road. We have split picks here, with Ron Patrick on New England and Jason Lake on Denver.
Pick: Ron Patrick: Patriots ML +125 // Jason Lake: Broncos -2.5
We've got two exciting young quarterbacks going toe-to-toe on Monday Night Football and the NFL odds currently have San Francisco favored. Ron Patrick likes the 49ers to win both straight up and against the spread.
Pick: 49ers -4.5[gameodds]16/227043/?r-1=19-349-43-192/us[/gameodds]
