NFL Picks: Week 12 Computer Predictions
When the Odds Shark super computer started last week 0-3 ATS, the doubt began to sit in.
But a 9-2 ATS run the rest of Week 11 put the prediction computer nicely in the black for the weekend, clicking in at 11-3 SU and 9-5 ATS. (Read the Week 11 picks article.)
Week 12 NFL predictions kick off Thursday and the machine has all three Thanksgiving Day road teams winning. Only the Washington Redskins are road underdogs and the computer picks them to continue their spread-covering ways with a 24-22 win (the Redskins are 5-0 ATS the past five seasons in Dallas).

The Texans are picked to win 35-23 in Detroit and the Patriots will romp 39-22 in yet another OVER bet, assuming the computer is accurate.
Three games remained off the board, primarily due to concussion issues with quarterbacks. Without odds and without proper data on the personnel, we took those games out of rotation for the computer in Week 12.
So no prediction on the Monday Nighter, in Pitt vs Cleveland, in Vikings vs Bears. We had a line with a PK in the 49ers-Saints game, so we are using that.
Other than that, expect road teams to dominate. In the 12 games we ran, the roadies are 9-3 SU.
Denver is the week's biggest favorite and they are on the road at KC. But while the computer says 33-11, beware the fact Denver is 0-10 ATS in their past 10 games as a big favorite. And the last time they were a double-digit road favorite, they lost. And it was in Kansas City. (The best Chiefs line of +11.5 was found Thursday at 5Dimes, check out he current line.)
