Best Week 12 NFL Underdogs To Bet On

Posted by Stan Simmons on 11/17/2014 8:47:12 PM

The Oakland Raiders have been one of the best underdogs of the NFL betting season as they've routinely been given a double digit point-spread and found a way to make the games close and come within the spread. This week they aren't quite as good of a sports betting option, but they, along with two other NFL teams, are primed to play a competitive game and possibly even pull off an upset or two.

Oakland Raiders +7.5

The Raiders get a touchdown and a half against the Kansas City Chiefs this week and although they're 0-10 on the season, rookie quarterback Derek Carr is looking like the real deal with a 60% completion rate and an average of 200 passing yards per game. The Raiders struggled to run the ball against the San Diego Chargers last Sunday, yet they were still able to compete and hold one of the league’s best offenses to just 13 total points. The Chiefs on the other hand are coming off a Week 11 win, but it was a narrow four-point victory over the Seattle Seahawks. While it's almost a foregone conclusion the Chiefs will win this match-up, the Raiders get 7.5 points of extra offense and will continue to be a sports bettors best friend.

Cincinnati Bengals +1.5

The Cincinnati Bengals are only getting a point and a half this weekend, but they're facing a 5-5 Houston Texans squad that has been riddled by injuries this season yet is coming off an impressive win over the Cleveland Browns. Whether Arian Foster plays or not is irrelevant as the Texans have the third best rushing attack in the league, which was only helped last Sunday by Alfred Blue's 36 carries for 156 yards. While the Bengals have struggled on the defensive side of the ball this season they're still one of the most talented teams in the league and coming off a 27-10 victory over the Saints in New Orleans. A.J. Green is finally healthy again, and even if Giovani Bernard misses yet another game, his back-up, Jeremy Hill, is averaging nearly 5.0 yards per carry and has already topped the 150 yard mark in two games. The Bengals will need a victory to payout this bet, but going up against a so-so Texans squad won't be nearly as hard as last weeks victory over the Saints on the road.

Miami Dolphins +8

The Miami Dolphins get an enormous eight points this week, but they're going up against the Denver Broncos in the Mile High city. Denver is coming off a bad loss to the St. Louis Rams, giving them even more motivation to come back and get a Week 12 victory. The Dolphins however have won four of their last five games while holding opponents to an average of just 11.2 points per game. They most likely won't have this type of success against the Broncos, but the Dolphins are quietly playing themselves into the playoffs and have a Top 10 defense that allows just 208 passing yards per contest. The x-factor in this game is unsurprisingly Ryan Tannehill as the Miami quarterback has completed 72.6% of his passes the last three weeks while also throwing for six touchdowns and just one interception. The Denver defense cannot be taken lightly, but Tannehill should have another successful day with the Dolphins competing with the Broncos throughout.
