Week 12 in the NFL is here, which means another exciting slate of games to be thankful for as the Thanksgiving holiday approaches.
Bettors are anxiously looking to see the NFL’s best bets, with BetMGM having the latest NFL odds.
So, what are some lines you should take a closer look at in Week 12? Here are some that stand out to me in NFC games.
Lions (+150) vs. Bears
Yes, I am taking the Lions’ money line here, and I think they have an excellent chance of getting their first win of the season.
Detroit hasn’t won a game but challenged in their last two games, tying Pittsburgh and only losing to Cleveland by three. Now, they have their annual Thanksgiving home game.
Chicago has allowed the most sacks in the NFL, averaging 3.6 per game. If there were any time that the Lions would win a game this year, I believe it is this week.
Packers (-110) vs. Rams
The Packers are one-point favorites, with the odds at -110 on the money line and the spread. Given the odds, it makes more sense to take the money line to avoid a possible push.
I’m surprised that the Packers are this small of a favorite, but it is likely because QB Aaron Rodgers continues to deal with a toe injury. However, I still trust Rodgers to put up numbers considering Green Bay scored 31 points last week, and Rodgers threw for 385 passing yards with four touchdowns.
Also, the Rams have lost their last two games, including an embarrassing 31-10 loss to the 49ers. Odell Beckham Jr. needs to get going here because he had just two catches for 18 yards in his last game.
Going into Lambeau Field in late November will be challenging for a team that plays in warm Los Angeles. Plus, the Packers’ defense allows the fifth-fewest points per game (19.5) and the seventh-fewest passing yards (213.2).
Washington (-110) vs. Seahawks
Washington is in the same situation as the Packers, favored by one point at home where the odds are the same on the spread. However, they have won their last two games and look to make some noise in the playoff hunt on MNF.
I do not trust Seattle anymore. They have the worst time of possession average in the NFL (24:44). In addition, Seattle’s offense ranks 30th in total yards per game (298.6) and scores just 19.4 points per game.
They face a team with the sixth-best rushing defense in the NFL (98.5 rushing yards allowed per game), and the Seahawks have not found an answer to losing RB Chris Carson for the season.
I expect a surging Washington team on a two-game winning streak to deliver the final knockout punch to Seattle’s season here.
Seahawks-Washington Under 46.5
As discussed above, Seattle’s offense has struggled this season, and they cannot hang onto the ball for a long enough time to do damage with it. On top of that, Washington’s offense averages just 21.2 points per game.
Seattle has been the best team to bet on an under this year; the under is 8-1-1 in their games. Until the Seahawks prove otherwise, I see no reason not to pick the under here.
