NFL 12 –

On Sunday, it’s …

SAN FRANCISCO (1-9) at MIAMI (6-4) – 1 p.m. ET, Fox

Surprise, surprise!

The Miami Dolphins – who haven’t made it to the playoffs since 2008 – are having their most fun season in eons as first-year head coach Adam Gase’s gang rolls into this tilt on a five-game SU (straightup) winning streak while going a fancy 4-0-1 ATS (against the spread). The only question we have here is whether or not the Fish will be “up” for this one after tacking together back-to-back left coast wins the past two weeks in San Diego and in Los Angeles.

The recipe here is 25-or-so carries for Miami RB Jay Ajayi (685 yards rushing the past five games) but San Fran could take advantage of a Miami O-line that’s banged up. Take note that the 49ers average just 20.4 ppg and they’re 1-8 vig-wise when allowing opponents to score 23-or-more points.

Spread Note – Miami is 5-4-1 versus the vig at the current time but did you know the Dolphins have done no better than 9-7 against the odds in any of the past 10 years?


CAROLINA (4-6) at OAKLAND (8-2) – 4:25 p.m. ET, Fox

Hey, what’s this … the 1970s?

We already mentioned the raging-hot Miami Dolphins but what about the silver-and-black?

The Oakland Raiders have won seven of their last eight games – they even win in international settings such as Mexico! – and for you ‘cappers out there note Jack Del Rio’s squad has nabbed four consecutive pointspread “W’s” and now go up against a Carolina crew without top tackler LB Luke Kuechly (much-heralded concussion suffered last week versus New Orleans).

If the Raiders have their way they’ll attack Carolina’s slow-to-the-ball cornerbacks with WRs Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree who’ve combined for 114 receptions worth 1,501 yards and 9 TDs.

Do the Panthers have any life left in ‘em after that catastrophic start to this year-after-the-Super-Bowl season? Find out here as the game plan should include a batch of designed runs by QB Cam Newton where he might just leave LB Khalil Mack in his wake!

Spread Note – Oakland’s covered just three of its last dozen home games while dating back to the start of last year.


On Sunday Night, it’s …

KANSAS CITY (7-3) at DENVER (7-3) – 8:30 p.m. ET, NBC

The KC Chiefs and Denver Broncos were “flexed” into this time slot when the good folks at the peacock network couldn’t bear to watch the New York Jets play … yes, the NBC folks took a pass on airing the New England Patriots but this should be the best game on the holiday weekend board and note this will be the first of their two head-to-headers in the next five weeks. If the visiting 3.5-point underdog Chiefs wish to topple the defending Super Bowl champs, than our advice is to not “poke the bear” and challenge this hellacious secondary starring CB Chris Harris and S T.J. Ward – so that means lots of dink-and-dunk passes from QB Alex Smith while the Broncos (coming off their bye week) must get the ball in the hands of underutilized WRs Demaryius Thomas (55 catches, 5 TDs) and Emmanuel Sanders (54 receptions, 3 TDs).

Keep in mind that last year the Chiefs won the game played in the Mile High City (a 29-13 triumph) while the Broncos won the game played at noisy Arrowhead (a 31-24 win) … will home field be “no advantage at all” here?

Stay tuned and make sure you’re cashing with this game and all the NFL Week 12 showdowns when you check with Jim Hurley at 1-800-323-4453 or else right here online.

Spread Notes – Kansas City is a slumbering 4-8 vig-wise in its last dozen head-to-head battles with the Broncos. On the flip side, Denver enters this night-time bash at 9-3-1 ATS since the start of last year’s playoffs.
