Week 12 Predictions

Last week was a good one for my predictions as I had another solid week against the spread. I was right on regarding the Raiders/Vikings and Chargers/Bears games but was way off on the Eagles/Giants. This is one of my favorite weeks as a football fan with the three games being played on Thanksgiving. Every family has traditions on this day and in many cases that could involve sitting around watching the games. Beyond that, there are still 13 other games on either Sunday or Monday so it will be a great five day span of football.

Week 11 results:

Straight up: Last week: 10-4, Season: 100-60

Against the spread:  7-7, Season: 87-73

Game of the weak: Cardinals vs Rams:

The last time these teams played, the Cardinals won on a Patrick Peterson 99 yard punt return touchdown in overtime. Chances are that won’t happen again and with the possibility of the Cardinals trotting out their third quarterback Richard Bartel, the rematch could be ugly to watch. Cardinals 16 Rams (-3.5) 20

Game of the week: Packers vs Lions:

It has been a while since a Thanksgiving Day game has meant anything for the Lions but this should be worth the wait. Ford Field is going to be rocking and there should be plenty of excitement on the field as well. This is the Packers third game in 11 days so if they survive this matchup against a physical Lions defense, there is a very good chance they run the table.   Packers 37 Lions (+6.5) 28

Dolphins 17 Cowboys (-7.5) 26

49ers 17 Ravens (-3.5) 23

Vikings 14 Falcons (-9.5) 26

Browns 17 Bengals (-7.5) 27

Panthers 28 Colts (+3.5) 20

Texans 23 Jaguars (+3.5) 13

Bills 17 Jets (-8.5) 26

Buccaneers 20 Titans (-3.5) 23

Bears 17 Raiders (-4.5) 24

Redskins 16 Seahawks (-4.5) 23

Patriots 27 Eagles (+3.5) 20

Broncos 17 Chargers (-6.5) 24

Steelers 31 Chiefs (+10.5) 13

Giants 23 Saints (-7.5) 28
