NFL Week 12 Lock Picks
NFL Week 12 lock picks weren’t as difficult to find as I thought they’d be. The teams that I pick as locks appear much better than their opponents. Will Seattle put a stunning beating onto Tampa Bay on Sunday? How will the Jets respond to the best team in the AFC, the New England Patriots, on Nov. 27? What’s going to happen when Green Bay and Philadelphia throw down in Pennsylvania in Week 12?

When: Sunday, November 27, 2016
Start Time: 4:05 PM ET
Where: Tampa, FL
Stadium: Raymond James Stadium
Spread: Seahawks -5
Moneyline: Seattle -235 vs Tampa Bay +195
Game Total: 44.5
Watch: FOX Sports
Stream: Fox Sports Go
Listen: Seattle vs Tampa Bay
Analysis: Tampa Bay, somehow, left Kansas City with a win. As a +7.5 road dog, Tampa Bay wasn’t supposed to challenge Kansas City in Week 11. Not only did TB challenge the Chiefs, they beat them straight up. Does that mean that Tampa Bay has turned the corner? Not really. The Buccaneers return home to face one of the breakout NFC Teams from Week 11.
Seattle proved that they are as good as any team in the NFC this season by beating a solid Philadelphia squad 26 to 15. The Seahawks scored 26 points against one of the better defenses in the NFL while shutting down Philly’s offense.
Seattle should have no trouble covering the 5-point spread against a Tampa Bay team that’s at least a year away from making the playoffs.
NFL Week 12 Lock Pick: Seattle
What: New England Patriots (8-2) at NY Jets (3-7)
When: Sunday, November 27, 2016
Start Time: 4:25 PM ET
Where: East Rutherford, NJ
Stadium: MetLife Stadium
Spread: Patriots -8.5
Moneyline: New England -425 vs New York +340
Game Total: 47
Stream: CBS Sports
Listen: New England vs NY Jets
Analysis: New England under QB Tom Brady and coach Bill Belichick have dominated AFC East rivals throughout the years. That should be no different this Sunday when the Patriots battle the Jets.
Even though the Pats beat San Francisco 30 to 17 in Week 11, they weren’t nearly as sharp against the 49’ers as they’re likely to be this Sunday in New Jersey. The Patriots love to beat up the Jets.
I’m expecting at least a 10-point win on Sunday. Don’t be surprised if the Pats beat the Jets by way more than that.
NFL Week 12 Lock Pick: New England
What: Green Bay Packers (4-6) at Philadelphia Eagles (5-5)
When: Monday, November 28, 2016
Start Time: 8:30 PM ET
Where: Philadelphia, PA
Stadium: Lincoln Financial Field
Spread: Eagles -3
Game Total: N/A
Stream: Watch ESPN
Listen: Green Bay vs Philadelphia
Analysis: The Philadelphia Eagles played Seattle tough for about a quarter and a half. Even at half-time, the Eagles were only down by 9 points. But in the second half Seattle’s class came to the forefront.
The Seahawks are just better than Philadelphia is. One team that isn’t better than Philadelphia are the Green Bay Packers. The Packers, a pre-season favorite to win Super Bowl 51 in 2017, have lost 4 in a row and 5 out of their last 6. The Pack are 0-3 ATS in their last 3 games.
The problem that Green Bay has is on the defensive side of the football. They can’t stop any teams from scoring points against them. Philadelphia doesn’t have the best offense but it should be good enough for the Eagles to beat Green Bay next Monday night.
I think Philly covers easily. The Packers don’t appear capable of handling any team in the NFL, much less one of the better squads in the NFC.
