The NFL got Week 12 started with a key AFC showdown on Thursday Night Football. The Texans edged the Colts 20-17 to take a one-game lead in the division and split the head-to-head series. More importantly for some of us, the Colts covered the 3.5-point spread!
We’re back for a Sunday slate that features some huge matchups. We get a potential Super Bowl preview between the Cowboys and Patriots. How about an NFC title game preview between the Packers and 49ers? The Seahawks and Eagles square off with both battling to remain in their respective divisional races. And Week 12 wraps with a Ravens-Rams matchup on Monday Night Football that will offer a big defensive test for Lamar Jackson.
It’s been a struggle of late for my picking skills, and Week 11 wasn’t pretty. I went 5-9 last week and now sit at 75-84-3 on the season. We’ll see if I can bounce back in Week 12.
I’ve got a couple wagers in place for the weekend and will add a couple more on Sunday. I grabbed the Broncos +4 against the Bills on the thought that the Broncos defense will give Josh Allen & Co. problems. It should be a close one. I also grabbed the Packers at +3 against the 49ers. I actually think the 49ers -3 is the side to back, and that’s the wager I would suggest. However, as a 49ers fan (fade me as needed), I am going with the emotional hedge in this huge matchup.
