NFL Week 12 Betting: Washington Redskins vs. Seattle Seahawks Odds, Prediction, and Pick

Seattle Seahawks

The Washington Redskins are on one of the worst downswings in the NFL so far this season (aside from the 0-10 Indianapolis Colts).  The Redskins have lost six games in a row now, and are sitting at 3-7 overall.  What makes this even tougher to swallow for the Redskins is that three of those losses came against teams who only had one win at the time they matched up with them.  The Redskins are looking to turn it around and get back on the winning track this week, but they’ll be on the road against a Seattle Seahawks team who has won two games in a row now.  The Seahawks may only have a 4-6 record, but they have beaten the likes of the New York Giants and the Baltimore Ravens this year.

This game will be tough for the Redskins though, as they’ll have to travel across the country to take on a team who has one of the best fan bases in the NFL.  This team is struggling right now, and they get to play a team who is actually heading in the right direction at the right time with their win streak.  Don’t look past the motivational Pete Carroll either, because he’ll have his team ready to go at home.

This game will kick off at 4:05pm EST, and while these two teams have struggled this year; we still expect this game to be heated and actually be one of the best games of the weekend.  What really matters in the end though, is that this will be one of the best betting options of week 12 in the NFL.

Odds and Sports Betting Line

Washington Redskins: +3.5

Seattle Seahawks: -3.5

Free Prediction

Many people will see the Redskins close loss last week to the Dallas Cowboys, and think that this team could potentially be ready to turn the corner.  Well, it’ll actually be quite the opposite this week.  Losing to a big time rival in that way is incredibly tough to come back from, and I think that Washington will have a tough time getting up for this game against the Seahawks.  They have a tough travel, they are up against a team with a two game winning streak, and their opponent has one of the best home crowds in all of the NFL as well.  This all spells disaster for the Washington Redskins in week 12, and I think that the Seattle Seahawks get the win by a touchdown.

Prediction: Seattle Seahawks- 24 Washington Redskins- 17

Free Pick

I’m actually slightly surprised that the Seahawks are only -3.5.  Many people don’t believe that this team is very strong, but they have one thing that could potentially cause some issues for the Redskins, and that is running back Marshawn Lynch.  Lynch has been playing incredibly well as of late, and he’ll cause major issues for the Redskins this weekend.  Don’t look past the travel that the Redskins are doing, and also both the offensive and defensive struggles they’ve had as of late.  I’m picking the Seattle Seahawks to get the win and to cover the spread as well.

Pick:  Seattle Seahawks -3.5

NFL Week 12 Betting: New England Patriots vs. Philadelphia Eagles Odds, Prediction, and Pick

New England Patriots

What some would consider to be this weeks biggest NFL match-up features two teams who were talked about as potentially meeting in the 2012 NFL Super Bowl.  Unfortunately for one team, they have quite a bit of work to do to even make the PLAYOFFS.  The Eagles have been the disappointment of the NFL this year, and they are currently sitting at 4-6 after a huge win against the previous NFC East leaders, the New York Giants.  While the Giants are a strong team, the Eagles will have an even tougher match-up this week against a New England Patriots team who seems to be hitting their stride once again after tripping up a bit during the middle of the season.  The Pats have now won two games in a row and the Eagles would love to get that same streak going when this week comes to an end.  The Eagles are also hopeful that they will have quarterback Michael Vick back in the lineup before this match-up, and he could be a key when all is said and done against this Patriots team.

This game will kick off at 4:15pm on Sunday, November 27th, and will be played in Philadelphia.  The Patriots currently hold a two game lead over both the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets in the AFC East; the Eagles on the other hand are two games behind both the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants in the NFC East.

This match-up will not only be one of the best games of the week, but will also be an excellent NFL betting match-up as well!

Odds and Sports Betting Line

New England Patriots: -3

Philadelphia Eagles: +3

Free Prediction

The Eagles will struggle in this match-up.  Regardless of if they have Vick or Vince Young in the game, the Patriots team in general is well-coached and will have an excellent game plan prepared.  They’ve also shown that they are ready to get prepared for Playoff time, and I expect them to come out firing against this Eagles team.  I think it’ll be a high scoring game overall, but that in the end Tom Brady and Bill Belichick will prevail once again, and this time it’ll be on the road.  I’m taking the Patriots to win it by a touchdown but have control throughout the fourth quarter.

Prediction:  New England Patriots- 35 Philadelphia Eagles- 28

Free Pick

I was VERY surprised to see this line as only -3 for the Patriots.  I understand that they are on the road in this game, and that the Eagles are essentially in a must win situation, but I feel like everyone is expecting too much out of this “dream team” in Philadelphia at this point.  They’ve already shown that they aren’t a top caliber team in this league, and I don’t expect anything to change this week against the Patriots.  If anything, I expect them to take a step back against a strong Patriots team.  I’m picking the New England Patriots to get the win, and also to cover the spread of -3.

Pick:  New England Patriots -3

Monday Night Football Betting: Kansas City Chiefs vs. New England Patriots Odds, Prediction, and Pick

New England Patriots

Two weeks ago, this match-up between the Kansas City Chiefs and the New England Patriots would have drawn an incredible amount of hype, with two teams who were riding hot streaks.  Between weeks four and six, these two teams were both on three game winning streaks, and were talked about as being the favorites to win their respective divisions.  Things have changed quite a bit for both teams, but more one team than the other.  The Patriots suffered a two game losing streak, which they got past last week with an impressive road win against their biggest rival in the New York Jets.  The Patriots are hoping that this gets them back heading in the right direction, and that their high powered offense can continue to put up strong performances week in and week out.

On the other side of the ball is a Chiefs team who you just have to feel bad for.  They’ve had a tough year, and I don’t mean that based on how they’ve played week in and week out.  They have suffered an incredible number of season ending injuries ranging from running back Jamaal Charles, safety Eric Berry, tight end Tony Moeaki, and this week it was quarterback Matt Cassel who is most likely out for the year.  This team has been living by the phrase “next man up”, and they’ll need quarterback Tyler Palko to step in this week, which could be tough for a player who has never started an NFL game in his career.  The Chiefs have now lost two games in a row, and those two games were to the previously winless Miami Dolphins, and the Denver Broncos who have climbed back into the talks of potentially winning the AFC West.

This Monday Night Football match-up should be an interesting one, and it will definitely be a good betting option for any of the sports betting fans out there.

Odds and Sports Betting Line

Kansas City Chiefs: +14.5

New England Patriots: -14.5

Free Prediction

The Chiefs have their work cut out for them this week, plain and simple.  Their defense has struggled, their offense has struggled, and now they are up against one of the best offenses in the NFL.  Kansas City will need to play mistake free football to even have a chance, and I just can’t see it happening.  The Patriots get another bonus by getting to play this one at home, and I think they win it in a walk.  I’m taking the Patriots by three touchdowns.

Prediction:  New England Patriots- 35 Kansas City Chiefs- 14

Free Pick

The Pats are set at an interesting line of -14.5, but I really can’t see this game even being close.  The Chiefs have just had too many tough losses, and their back-up’s won’t be able to keep up with this Patriots team.  And as we know, Bill Belichick and the Patriots don’t hold back against anyone.  I don’t see this week being a different story, and I’m picking the New England Patriots to cover the big point spread.

Pick:  New England Patriots -14.5
