Vegas is anticipating plenty of tight matchups during the Week 12 NFL schedule with only one game, Dolphins vs. Browns (-10.5), going off with double-digit NFL odds. The Browns, who sit at 4-6, desperately need a win to stay alive in the NFL playoff picture. The same is true for their AFC North counterparts, the Steelers (5-5), who are laying 6.5 points on the road against the winless Bengals, according to the latest Week 12 NFL spreads.
Bettors will have their eye on those Week 12 NFL lines and others as news and injury updates shift the NFL odds. Before locking in any Week 12 NFL picks on those games or a blockbuster showdown like Cowboys vs. Patriots (-6.5), you’ll want to see the latest NFL predictions from the advanced computer model at SportsLine.
Winning picks from a proven model
The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up over $7,000 for $100 players on its top-rated NFL picks since its inception four years ago. It’s on a 92-63 roll on top-rated picks that dates back to 2017, and last season, the model also ranked in the Top 10 on NFLPickWatch for the third year in a row on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 96 percent of CBS Sports office pool players.
Anyone who has followed it has consistently beaten NFL odds and is way up. Now, the computer examined the latest Week 12 NFL odds and lines, simulated every snap, and its Week 12 NFL predictions are in.
Week 12 NFL picks to target
One of the model’s strongest NFL picks of the week comes in the 1 p.m. ET Sunday NFC South matchup between the Carolina Panthers and New Orleans Saints (-9.5) at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
The Saints have been one of the NFL’s top teams against the spread in 2019, posting a 7-3 mark. Their 26-9 upset loss to the Falcons two weeks back appears to be an anomaly because they’ve covered six of their last seven overall, including as 5.5-point favorites against the Buccaneers last week. The Panthers, meanwhile, have gone cold, dropping three of their last four outright with just one cover during that span. Carolina now stands at 2020 Super Bowl odds of 100-1.
SportsLine’s model is projecting that quarterback Drew Brees will throw for almost 300 yards and two touchdowns as the Saints cover almost 60 percent of the time. It has also found value on the over (47) because that hits in well over 60 percent of simulations.
The model also has made the call against the spread, on the over-under, and on the money line for every other game on the Week 12 NFL schedule. It’s also projecting a Super Bowl contender to go down hard, so you need to see its NFL picks before locking in any of your own. Get every pick for every game here.
