NFL Betting Props: Texans and Bears

The Houston Texans and Chicago Bears are both 7-3, and both will move forward without their starting quarterbacks as Jay Cutler and Matt Schaub are out for the rest of the season with injuries. The question on NFL betting fans’ minds is how will their replacements fare?

Here’s a look at the prop bets Bovada whipped up on these two quarterbacks and their teams, as well as a prop bet on Tim Tebow for Week 12.

NFL Picks: Week 12 Scores Engine

Underdog bettors will be giving thanks if the NFL scores engine is right with its Thanksgiving Day NFL picks.

After a 9-5 ATS run in Week 11, the computer is picking all three dogs – the Detroit Lions, Miami Dolphins and San Francisco 49ers – to cover the spread Thursday. In three weeks since we fired up the picks engine, it is a documented 30-14 ATS.


NFL Line Moves: Week 12

Only four NFL line movements this week have been by a full point, with most games just moving a half-point in one direction or the other. The only major exception is in the Chicago Bears’ trip to Oakland.

NFL Injury Roundup: Week 12 Betting

Just one week after losing Matt Cassel and Matt Schaub for the rest of the season, there were more major injuries around the NFL last week including Chicago’s Jay Cutler and Buffalo’s Fred Jackson.

Jay Cutler is expected to miss at least 6-8 weeks with a broken thumb he sustained in a win last week over San Diego. Currently holding a 7-3 record, the Bears will try and hold on to their playoff spot moving forward with backup quarterback Caleb Hanie. The Bears are a 4-point underdog on the road at Oakland this Sunday at 5Dimes.


Cowboys vs Dolphins Thanksgiving Pick

Even Miami Dolphin fans are wondering how their team has won three straight and even the stoutest Dolphin bettors might be keeping their wallet closed on Thanksgiving as they visit the Dallas Cowboys.

With Dallas favored by more than a TD, the total bet is attracting lots of interest as Miami is 9-1 on the season favoring the UNDER (all 5 road games). The OVER has been trending in Dallas home games (11-3 past 14).


Ravens vs 49ers Thursday Betting

The San Francisco 49ers get another chance to prove their 9-game win streak is no fluke when they visit the tough Baltimore Ravens Thursday in Week 12 NFL betting action.

The 49ers get plenty of respect from the oddsmakers who made them 3-point opening line underdogs. That basically gives the Ravens a 3-point edge for home field, which is significant since they are 15-1 SU in their past 16 home games.


Lions vs Packers Thursday Preview

The Green Bay Packers look for an 11-0 start against a team they have dominated the past decade.

The Pack is 17-3 SU in their past 20 meetings with the Lions, but lost here 7-3 a year ago in the game where Aaron Rodgers was lost to a concussion. In four prior trips to Detroit, they averaged nearly 40 PPG.

Green Bay has won eight straight road games while the Lions are 6-1 ATS past 7 games as an underdog (OVER is 10-2-1 past 13 when they are dogged by sportsbooks.


NFL Opening Lines: Packers Favored

Football on Thanksgiving is an American tradition, and this year’s Turkey Day football betting card doesn’t disappoint. In arguably the biggest game of the holiday weekend, the Green Bay Packers will try to stay undefeated on the road against the Detroit Lions.
