I had the UNDER in Green Bay’s romp over Minnesota last Sunday, but my Week 11 parlay fell apart when the Oakland at Detroit game failed to go OVER. Fortunately Week 12 of the NFL season offers an excellent opportunity to get back to my winning ways with this Sunday’s top two picks based on NFL betting odds from MyBookie.ag.
NFL Week 12 Parlay Betting Picks Game 1
New York Giants at Washington Redskins: Take the Giants -2.5
Somebody has to take control of the NFC East and the Giants appear to be the best of the bunch at this point of the season to get it done. They are coming off a bye at 5-5 straight-up after giving New England all it could handle in a tight 27-26 loss in Week 10 as seven-point home underdogs to go 3-0-1 against the spread in their last four games.
Washington is just a game back in the division at 4-6 SU, but it was exploited as a team with issues on both sides of the ball in last Sunday’s 44-16 beatdown at the hands of undefeated Carolina as a seven-point road underdog. The Redskins are now just 1-4 ATS in their last five games. Lay the points and take New York to pull-off the season sweep against its rivals after beating the Redskins 32-21 as a three-point home favorite in the first meeting this NFL betting year.
NFL Week 12 Parlay Betting Picks Game 2
Miami Dolphins at New York Jets: Take Miami +3.5
It has been an up and down ride for the Dolphins since Dan Campbell took over the head coaching duties with 3-3 record both SU and ATS in his first six games. One of the reasons that Joe Philbin was let go was his team’s dismal online football betting performance in a 27-14 loss to the Jets as a 2.5-point home underdog on Oct. 4. Miami is still in the hunt for a wildcard spot in the AFC at 4-6 and I think Campbell will have this team ready to go this time around.
New York has now lost four of its last five games SU with a costly 0-4-1 record ATS. It lost three of those games after closing as a favorite including a 24-17 setback against Houston this past Sunday as a four-point favorite on the road. The Jets have also had their issues at home against their AFC East rivals with a 1-6 SU record in their last seven home games against Miami. They might be able to pull-out a SU win this time around, but I have this matchup pegged as a three-point game either way with the extra half point in my favor.
