Arizona Cardinals vs St. Louis Rams Odds


Arizona finally gets a team that it has regularly dominated as it tries to make up some ground in the NFC West standings.

They visit a Rams team that still can't score but has won two of its past four games. Arizona is 9-1 SU, 7-3 ATS past 10 against the Rams and they have won the past 6 trips here to Missouri.

The Cardinals are just 1-7 ATS in their last 8 divisional games.

Houston Texans vs Jacksonville Jaguars Odds


The Houston Texans come off a bye week with a crucial divisional road game in Jacksonville, a match where they will entrust Matt Leinart with the offense.

Houston QB Matt Schaub is out, which is keeping the point spread in check here (it opened at -3.5 for the Texans). If you are wondering how Houston typically performs after a week off, the UNDER is 6-1 past 7 seasons after their BYE week.

The Jaguars limped home after a weak loss at Cleveland and they have now played 9 UNDERs in 10 games this season.


Game Preview - Colts underdogs vs Panthers at Indianapolis

Carolina Panthers vs Indianapolis Colts Odds


Indianapolis is 0-10 and this week may be their best (only) chance to avoid a winless season, just three seasons after their flirted with a perfect season.

The Colts are small underdogs to the visiting Carolina Panthers who won't be taking any pity. At least the Colts get an extra week of rest and practice to try to pull out the victory here. And they are 6-1 ATS the past 7 seasons following a BYE week.

That was with Peyton Manning at the controls, so it's sort of a useless stat given the 2011 edition of the Colts and their 2-8 ATS ways.


Cincinnati favored by 7.5 against Cleveland on Sunday

Cleveland Browns vs Cincinnati Bengals Odds


Sometimes divisional rivalries and current trends take a back seat to a simple statistic linked to strength of schedule.

The Cincinnati Bengals have been playing well but lost their last two to powerhouses in Pittsburgh and Baltimore.The Browns have scored a total of 26 points in matches vs the Jaguars and Rams.

This recent form angle has led many to jump on the Bengals at -7.5 and forced up the Week 12 NFL point spread already. We expect this to climb during the week. The Browns are 0-5 ATS within the AFC North lately.

Minnesota Vikings vs Atlanta Falcons Odds


The Minnesota Vikings try to salvage something of the 2011 season by visiting the Falcons in Week 12 NFL betting action and it's a place where they have won in the past.

The Vikes have won four of five trips to Georgia since 1991, but lost their last time in 2005. Atlanta meanwhile continues to be a solid UNDER bet at home (7-2 past 9 at Georgia Dome).

The Vikings have struggled as an underdog, going 2-14 SU their past 16 times in that situation.


Pats vs Chiefs in MNF Betting

The strange trend of the New England Patriots failing to cover NFL point spreads at home in the month of November continued two weeks as they lost to the Giants.

This time, it's the Kansas City Chiefs visiting Foxboro on Monday Night Football with the odds stacked high against KC. And they will look to continue a 2-11 ATS run for the Pats at home in November. [ See dozens of Tom Brady and New England Patriots Monday Night props at bottom of this article ]


Giants Eagles Odds Preview

The Philadelphia Eagles can't win at home but they remain a dangerous road foe and the New York Giants are about to find out in Week 11 odds action Sunday.

Both teams come off disheartening losses but the trends favor the Eagles in this NFC East clash. Philly is 6-1 SU and ATS vs the Giants in recent seasons, but that one loss happpened in Week 3.

The Eagles are 7-2 ATS past 9 visits to the Giants and 6-2 ATS past 8 games within the NFC East but will play without Michael Vick and Jeremy Maclin against their hated foes.
