NFL Week 12

So, here’s the rest of the week…

Sunday 1:00
Buccaneers @ Atlanta(-12)
Tampa is horrible, too awful to pick on the road.

Dolphins @ Buffalo (+3)
Hunh? The Bills can’t stop the run, the Dolphins mostly run. This won’t go well for Buffalo.

Browns @ Cincinnati(-13.5)
Intrastate hate game. Bengals need to right the ship, and nothing helps a team right the ship like facing Cleveland. Give the points.

Colts @ Houston(+3.5)
OK, so the Texans have mined the “miss the late FG to miss the tie causing overtime” successfully the last two weeks. I think they’re done, but Freeny is out, which means that the Texans will be able to throw some… so they lose by only a field goal… again.

Panthers @ New Jersey Jest(-3)
Ahh, the “no idea” spread from Vegas. Gang Green seems really ill of late, so I’m taking the points.

Redskins @ Philadelphia(-9)
Wow, that’s a lot of points for what might be another 7-6 game. Too many points.

Seahawks @ St. Louis(+4)
Only 4? I guess the Seabags aren’t very good on the road, but they should still cover this.

Sunday ~4:10
Chiefs @ San Diego(-14)
Since Denver won, the Bolts need to win to keep pace. I don’t like going against them late in the season… at least until the playoffs start. I’ll give the big number.

Jaguars @ San Francisco(-3)
Teams with a two-games-worse record should not be favored, even at home. I’ll take the points since Jax is right in the thick of a wild card fight and the Niners are just playing out the season now.

Bears @ Minnesota(-11)
Chicago is done and the Vikings are firing on all cylinders; they won’t take it easy on the Bears, either. Vikes huge.

Cardinals @ Tennessee(-2)
Having now seen it, I’m on the VY bandwagon. Give the two.

Steelers @ Baltimore(-2)
Big Ben is out and the Steelers look confused anyway. Give the two, again.

Patriots @ New Orleans(-1.5)
Not very many points.
