The NFL wrapped up Week 12 on Monday Night Football with Lamar Jackson firmly securing his top position in the race for NFL MVP. Jackson threw five touchdowns and almost rushed for one in the Ravens 45-6 whipping of the Rams. The Ravens had no trouble whatsoever with the Rams, and Baltimore improved to 6-4-1 against the spread on the season.
We had a couple near upsets this past week. The Cincinnati Bengals gave the Pittsburgh Steelers a scare before coming up short (and subsequently benching Ryan Finley for Andy Dalton). Among the quality teams, the Carolina Panthers should have beaten the New Orleans Saints, but kicker Joey Slye missed two extra points and a field goal, including a potential game-winner near the end of the game. Carolina covered the spread, but I don’t imagine they’re too excited about that in their push for a playoff berth.
Week 13 is upon us, and we’re back with a look at how the betting public did in a different form of power ranking. DraftKings Sportsbook put together a list of the top ten teams that won users the most money during NFL Week 12.
I enjoy that this power ranking includes teams like the Bengals, Jets, and Washington in the top ten. It’s safe to say you won’t find many such power rankings. The Bengals might be winless, but they are 4-6-1 against the spread. Washington is 2-9, but 4-7 against the spread. They’re not teams you want to regularly bet on, but they can win you money!
Here are the top ten teams that earned DraftKings users the most money in Week 12.
