It’s Thanksgiving Week and that means we have a full week of top-tier football. And if you are looking to bet on the NFL, then you have come to the right place. I have a trio of ATS Picks for NFL Week 12 betting action. Happy hunting!
ATS Picks NFL Week 12
San Francisco 49ers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
When: Sunday, Nov. 25 at 1:00 pm ET
Where: Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, FL
Odds: Tampa Bay -3
Analysis: San Francisco travels to Tampa Bay in one of those pride games between two losing teams. Tampa Bay remains one of the best teams in the NFL at moving the football while the 49ers defense is a mess.
The Buccaneers average 458.5 yards per game. That’s more than what either the New Orleans Saints or Kansas City Chiefs average. Tampa scored 35 points in the 35-38 loss to the Giants in Week 11.
San Francisco should move the football and get into the end zone. They shouldn’t do it more than Tampa, though, who only must cut down turnovers to beat the 49ers by at least 10 points.
ATS Pick: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
New England Patriots at New York Jets
When: Sunday, Nov. 18 at 1:00 pm ET
Where: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ
Odds: New England -9
Analysis: The Patriots should land in New Jersey ready to rumble against the hated Jets after taking their bye in Week 11. New England almost never plays two horrible games in a row.
Tennessee dominated the Patriots 34-10 in Week 10. Coach Bill Belichick will make sure that the Patriots don’t suffer any after effects from the beat down the Titans put onto them.
New England should beat the Jets by more than 20 on Sunday.
ATS Pick: New England Patriots
Pittsburgh Steelers at Denver Broncos
When: Sunday, Nov. 18 at 4:25 pm ET
Where: Broncos Stadium at Mile High, Denver, CO
Odds: Pittsburgh -3.5
Analysis: In Week 11, Steelers quarterback Big Ben Roethsliberger dived into the end zone for a late score that led to Pittsburgh winning their sixth straight. Roethsliberger scoring the TD was fitting because if he hadn’t thrown 3 interceptions, the Steelers might have not only beaten the Jaguars but might have also covered the spread.
Roethlisberger and Pittsburgh are road favorites over the Broncos, surprising 23-22 straight up winners over the L.A. Chargers in Week 11. Pittsburgh should have an easier time scoring against Denver’s offense, which isn’t great versus the run, than it did against the Jaguars.
Pittsburgh wins and covers.
ATS Pick: Pittsburgh Steelers
