Super Contest Week 12 Super Contest Picks

After three consecutive profitable weeks, the OddsShark Super Computer is officially in the hunt in the Team OddsShark standings, sitting just four points back of current leader Anthony Riccobono. With Week 12 upon us, the Computer is ready to rumble with its human counterparts and prove once and for all that the human mind can’t compete with the emotionless functionality of a technologically advanced machine.

 Here are the Computer's picks for Week 12 of the Super Contest:

Ravens (-4) over Bengals

There’s no point in backing the Bengals at all and this looks to be another great spot to fade them. Cincy has covered the number in just two games (2-7-1) so far this season and is a horrific 1-5 ATS in its last six games entering Week 12.

The Ravens are just 5-5 this season but are tied for the lead in the AFC North so they still have plenty to play for. Furthermore, the Bengals are without A.J. Green, their best weapon, and looked horrible trying to move the ball vs the Bills last week.

Raiders (-3) over Panthers

The Oakland Raiders are now tied with the Patriots for the best record in the AFC and will look to keep things rolling this week against the 4-6 Carolina Panthers, who are just 1-3 on the road with an 0-3-1 ATS record.

It’s true that both of the Raiders’ losses came in Oakland this year but they’ve won and covered four straight games and have established themselves as a powerhouse among the NFL’s elite teams. Derek Carr has proved his might as an NFL signal-caller and is starting to get some attention in MVP conversations.

Oakland has an average margin of victory of 10 points over its last four and has easily handled the stout defenses of the Broncos and Texans. The Panthers are still getting the benefit of the doubt from sportsbooks but the Computer likes the Raiders to pull out a 26-22 win at home this week – a score that would cover the -3 Super Contest line.

Chiefs (+3.5) over Broncos

Ball security is of the utmost importance for quarterbacks when they face the Broncos defense. In Denver’s three losses this season, the opposing quarterbacks have not thrown a single interception, which has forced Trevor Siemian to win the game for the Broncos.

Alex Smith has thrown just four interceptions all season, with only two coming on the road. Though his numbers are down compared to last season, Smith will protect the ball and force Denver’s 28th-ranked offense to beat Kansas City, which isn’t likely.

Falcons (-4) over Cardinals

The Cardinals stink when they play in early games. So far this season, they're 0-3 SU and ATS when playing in the 1:00 PM EST time slot, which is when this game is taking place. Averaging a league-best 33.8 points per game at home, the well-rested Falcons should be too much for the struggling Cardinals to handle.

Speaking of being well rested, the Falcons are coming off a bye and they've been money in this spot, posting a 4-1 ATS record in their last five games following a bye week.

Eagles (-4) OVER Packers

A common theme has developed in the 2016 NFL season, and it’s been very profitable at the betting window: fade the Green Bay Packers. The Super Computer is expecting that trend to continue this weekend when the Pack take on the Philadelphia Eagles in the City of Brotherly Love.

The Eagles love the bright lights of Monday Night Football, as they’re 5-1 SU and ATS in their last six Monday games. Green Bay’s season has gone off the rails, and it’s clear whatever is ailing them is not something that’s going to be fixed any time soon. The Packers are 0-3 ATS in their last three, so grabbing the Eagles at -4 is one of the biggest bargains on the Week 12 board.
