NFL Computer Picks: Week 12 Bets
Fresh off a banner performance in Week 11 the OddsShark Computer has turned its attention to this week’s card and has pinpointed the underdog Dallas Cowboys as one of the easiest winners on the board.
The surging New York Giants have been impressive in rolling off four straight wins after an 0-6 start that began with a loss to the Cowboys. Giants QB Eli Manning was picked off six times in that Week 1 loss in Dallas. The Computer sees the Cowboys giving the Giants similar fits on Sunday
Dallas is a 2.5-point favorite as of Thursday. The point spread won’t be an issue, according to the Computer, which has the Cowboys winning outright, 24-17.
The Computer also sees the Kansas City Chiefs bouncing back emphatically from their first loss of the season with an eight-point win over the visiting San Diego Chargers. The Computer’s pick on this AFC West matchup bucks a couple of betting trends; the Chargers have won nine of the last 11 meetings with the Chiefs, who are 2-6 against the spread in their last eight divisional games.
In the big Sunday night game, the Computer is backing Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos as road favorites over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. This is the first time since 2005 that the Patriots have been home underdogs; they’ve covered in nine of their last 10 games as home dogs. However, the Computer sees the Broncos cruising by around eight points.
The Computer went 10-5 ATS and 6-9 on the O/U last week. Click here for the season results.
