NFL Odds: Week 12 Betting Trends

The NFC East doesn't look like an easy win for anyone anymore, and suddenly the New York Giants look like a legitimate threat to challenge the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys.

The Giants will host the Pokes on Sunday on the late card, but Dallas is in off a bye week and that might mean a series sweep for Tony Romo over Eli Manning.


NFL Week 12: Potential Upsets

It was only a matter of time before the favorites got the best of the books and in Week 11 they were 8-4-3, improving their season-long mark to 82-74-6. But the four underdogs that did cover last week all won outright, as the season tally for outright-pup improved to 51 on the year.

With 14 games on the slate, there are two division rivals that look awfully tempting as underdogs, and could win outright given their specific situations.


NFL Betting: Back the AFC West

When it comes to covering the spread, the NFC North and AFC South are the absolute worst divisions in the NFL. Teams from those two divisions are a combined 11 games under .500 against the spread.

The AFC South, featuring the Houston Texans (2-8 ATS) and Jacksonville Jaguars (2-8 ATS), is 15-24-1 ATS, heading into the Week 12 slate. The Texans and Jaguars are a combined 0-10 against the spread at home. The entire division is just 3-17-1 ATS at home.


Mavericks play host to the Rockets

The Houston Rockets have already won and covered against the Dallas Mavericks once this season as the Texas-based teams hit the hardwood together again in Dallas on Wednesday night.

The Rockets topped the Mavericks 113-105 as a 6.5-point home favorite on the NBA betting lines in the first meeting of the season between the teams back on November 1. The Mavericks, though, are 8-2 both SU and ATS in their past 10 matchups.

Penguins face off against Capitals

The Pittsburgh Penguins have won five of their last six games against the Washington Capitals as those Metropolitan Division rivals hit the ice together on Wednesday night.

Overall the Penguins are just 5-5 in their last 10 games against Alex Ovechkin and company, but they've picked up the win on the NHL betting lines in each of their last four meetings. The OVER is on a four-game run in that series.

NFL Opening Betting Lines: Week 12

Peyton Manning was the quarterback of the last team to be favored over the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium. Manning’s the QB again this week when his Denver Broncos roll into New England as favorites for a Sunday night showdown with the Patriots.

New England hasn’t been a home dog since Nov. 7, 2005, when the Manning-led Indianapolis Colts were 4-point favorites over the Patriots. The Colts won that game, 40-21, ending a streak for the Patriots that saw them cover nine consecutive games as home dogs.


College Football Betting: Week 13

The theme of the week is BOWL ELIGIBLE, as there are eight games on the college football schedule, beginning Thursday night, where teams can become bowl eligible with their sixth victory of the season. Now of the eight, there are two with no lines and a third in which the team needing a sixth win - Rutgers - is catching 17.5 points from Central Florida at 5Dimes on Thursday.

That leaves five games to talk about.
