Colts good value in NFL Week 12 Opening Lines

Listen up. Hear the sound of hooves off in the distance? It’s the sound of the Colts hitting their stride just in time to make life difficult for some AFC division champion in the playoffs.

As you look at the Week 12 Opening NFL odds, keep that in mind if you plan to bet Indy this week. Because as every good NFL bettor knows, knowing when to bet is almost as important as knowing who to bet on.

It’s called line moves and you can increase your odds of winning by paying attention.

Indy +3 at San Diego

The Chargers have lost four of their last six games while the Colts have won three in a row including wins over the Patriots and the Steelers. It looks as if Peyton Manning has found his groove, as the Colt offense is starting to look like it has in the past few years.

That is not good news for the Chargers, who opened as 3-point home favorites and who have the league’s 27th ranked defense. More alarming is they are the worst team in the league at defending the pass. The number has already been bet down to -2.5 at some online sportsbooks. {URL=} [ Matchup Report ] {/URL}

Even though the Chargers are at home, they are reeling and they look like they will miss the playoffs. These are two teams going in opposite directions and bettors will pick up on this and lay green on the Colts.

If you want to bet on the Colts take the line now, as it may inch closer to even during the week. You might as well get the +3 cushion now. And for that matter, you might want to take a look at the football moneyline and make a little extra on that game (if you think the Colts can win on the road).

Oakland +10 at Denver

Even though the Broncos opened as 10-point favorites over the Raiders, that may be a tad generous. Denver has the third-ranked offense in the league and they can really light up the scoreboard.

Even though Denver does not have a good defense they don’t really have to with the paltry offense of Oakland, as the Raiders have only scored a grand total of 50 points in their last 6 games. Nobody is going to bet on a 2-8 Raiders team away even if the spread is almost 10 points. This may be a blowout, so if you want to bet on the Broncos take the line now. {URL=} [ Betting trends ] {/URL}

Week 12 game lines - NY Jets at Tennessee -6

So the Jets have won four in a row and are in first place in the AFC East. They may not be as good as their record, as they only have three wins against teams that have winning records.

Overall, the Jets have played a pretty weak schedule and their defense is only ranked 15th in the league. The Titans are on fire, as the last undefeated team in the league and are at home this Sunday.

They are winning with defense and the Jets have not played any teams that have a great defense. It is hard to bet against an undefeated team when they are at home and hot. The line may go up, so if you want to bet on the Titans take the line now. {URL=} [ Matchup Report ]{/URL}
