  • In the Week 12 NFL picks against the spread, the Philadelphia Eagles are displaying the best straight up (9-1) and ATS (6-2-2) records in the league
  • The Carolina Panthers (1-7-2) continue to be the NFL’s worst ATS team this season
  • All of the Week 12 NFL picks against the spread and early lines to target are outlined in the story below

Entering into the Week 12 NFL picks against the spread, the fall of 1-2 is ongoing. This is the name that’s been chosen to designate my utter inability to pick teams capable of covering this season. Again, it was a perfect fit for my imperfect Week 11 selections.

The Detroit Lions have failed to cover three times all season long. Two of them came when I backed the Lions to cover.

Two weeks ago, I was picking the Jacksonville Jaguars to cover and they got trashed by the 49ers. In Week 11, I went with those underdog covering dynamos the Tennessee Titans to get the job done at Jacksonville. Instead, they got thrashed by the Jaguars.

Thankfully, the Minnesota Vikings managed to cover in a one-point loss at Denver, leaving me to again prove that it’s easy to come out 1-2 when you’re picking three.

This week’s gonna be different, right? Let’s look forward to the NFL lines for the Week 12 ATS picks.

Going to Indianapolis to face the Colts as 2.5-point underdogs, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 5-0 ATS as an away underdog this season. The Minnesota Vikings have covered in six straight games as they play host to the Chicago Bears on MNF. On the other hand, the New Orleans Saints, a 1-point pick at Atlanta, have covered in just three of the last 10 games as the road chalk.

Now, let’s check out all the best early bets in the Week 12 ATS picks.

NFL ATS Picks 1: Buccaneers Corral Colts

On the one hand, Indianapolis is 6-3 ATS over the last nine games. However, the Colts are 3-7 in the last 10 as the home chalk and 8-12 ATS in their last 20 as a home favorite.

Tampa Bay has proven to be a dynamic underdog play this season. The Buccaneers are 5-2 ATS as the betting underdog.

NFL ATS Picks: Tampa Bay Buccaneers +2.5 (-110), 1 unit

NFL ATS Picks 2: Saints Are Terrible Road Favorites

Going on the road, New Orleans doesn’t do well when giving the points. The Saints are 3-6-1 in their last 10 games as the away favorite.

Atlanta deals when well-rested. The Falcons are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games coming back from their bye week.

NFL ATS Picks: Atlanta Falcons +1 (-115), 1 unit

NFL ATS Picks 3: Vikings Rebound vs Bears

Straight up, Minnesota has won 10 of its last 18 games as the betting choice. The Vikings have also covered in the past six games they’ve played.

Chicago has lost 12 divisional games in a row SU. The Bears are also 3-12 ATS through their past 15 games facing NFC North clubs.

NFL ATS Picks: Minnesota Vikings -3.5 (-105), 1 unit

Week 12 NFL Picks Against the Spread Quick Picks

  • Lions (-7.5) vs Packers: Detroit is 11-1 ATS in the last 12 divisional games
  • Cowboys (-11) vs Commanders: Dallas is 10-2 ATS in the last 12 home games
  • 49ers (-7) vs Seahawks: San Francisco is 10-1 ATS in the last 11 games against AFC West squads
  • Dolphins (-10) vs Jets: The Jets are in free fall and Miami is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 against them
  • Steelers (-1) vs Bengals: With offensive coordinator Matt Canada fired, look for Pittsburgh’s offense to be giving Cincinnati some new looks
  • Panthers (+4) vs Titans: It’s Bryce Young vs Will Levis and Levis is giving the #1 overall pick in the draft a 4-point head start
  • Patriots (-3) vs Giants: Two dreadful teams, but at least New England is 6-3-1 ATS in the last 10 as the away chalk
  • Texans (+1.5) vs Jaguars: Houston has already beaten Jacksonville once this season and the Texas are 8-2 ATS in the last 10 as the betting underdog
  • Broncos (-2.5) vs Browns: Denver has won four in a row. Cleveland is 6-13-1 ATS in the past 20 games following a victory
  • Rams (-1) vs Cardinals: Arizona opened as a 1-point pick in this game before the line moved. It was the first time in 20 games that the Cardinals were favored
  • Raiders (+9) vs Chiefs: Kansas City hasn’t been effective covering large spreads, going 6-8 ATS in the past 14 games when favored by a TD or more
  • Bills (+3) vs Eagles: Buffalo ended a six-game ATS skid last week. Will Philly have a letdown following an emotional win over KC?
  • Ravens (-3.5) vs Chargers: LA is just a poorly-coached team. Almost every week, the Chargers find ways to lose. And they are 1-9 in the past 10 as a home underdog
