NFL WEEK 12

CHICAGO (3-7) at PHILADELPHIA (9-1) – 1 p.m. ET Fox

Here’s the funny thing about this year’s Philly Eagles:

They really can’t afford any “slip-ups” when you consider that both the 9-and-2 Minnesota Vikings and 8-and-2 New Orleans Saints are hot on their trail to get that numero uno seed in this year’s NFC Playoffs.

Sure, the Eagles enter this tilt on a tasty eight-game SU (straight-up) winning streak with seven consecutive ATS (against the spread) covers but Doug Pederson’s squad is on the road for its next three games (at Seattle, the LA Rams and NY Giants) and so this is a taking-care-of-business affair with Philadelphia QB Carson Wentz (2,430 yards passing with 25 TDs/ 5 INTs) hoping for a better start than last week (see eventual 37-9 win in Dallas).

The Bears have been held to 17 points or less in seven games this year but – get this – Chicago’s managed a 4-3 spread log in those seven games.

Spread Stat – Philadelphia has covered six of its last seven games against non-divisional opponents dating back to late 2016.

 

 

NEW ORLEANS (8-2) at LOS ANGELES RAMS (7-3) – 4:25 p.m. ET, Fox

Who Dat!

Yes, the here-and-now New Orleans Saints have taken the league by storm when most folks believe this to be your give-or-take .500 squad – and especially when you consider they entered the season at 37-to-1 to win Super Bowl LII and right now the Saints are listed at 8-to-1 … yowie!

If QB Drew Brees (2,783 yards passing with a modest 15 TD passes) can continue to get that all-important run/pass balance, then the 2.5-point underdog Saints should be able to make it nine consecutive SU wins here but we’ll say RBs Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara (a combined 1,265 yards rushing) need to be on the plus side of 150 ground yards to get “mission accomplished” The Rams, meanwhile, scored just one TD in last week’s haunting 24-7 loss in Minnesota and WR Robert Woods (shoulder) was banged up there and won’t play here – when is WR/RB Tavon Austin gonna step it up?

Spread Note – New Orleans is 11-2 against the odds away dating back to the start of the ’16 season.

On Sunday Night, it’s …

GREEN BAY (5-5) at PITTSBURGH (8-2) – 8:30 p.m. ET, NBC

Ladies and gents, we keep hearing about this upcoming Week 15 game between the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots and these Steelers … but can Mike Tomlin’s crew take care of these three other games before we even get to Dec. 17th? Note the Steel Gang has divisional duels at Cincinnati and then home to Baltimore on deck after this prime-timer.

No doubt the Steelers have blocked out all the chit-chat about the rival/hated Pats – Pittsburgh’s won five in a row SU while covering four of its last five games -- and here the two-TD favorite home folks would like to quash the anemic/Aaron Rodgers-less Packers early on so everyone can get some needed shut-eye.

Note that Green Bay QB Brett Hundley has been an unmitigated disaster (the Pack’s averaging 13.4 ppg in his five games) while the Steelers have relied more and more on this QB Ben Roethlisberger-led aerial attack. Note RB Le’Veon Bell has averaged less than four yards a pop in each of his last four games and some of the Steelers’ woes in regards to run-blocking has cropped up – maybe “Big Ben” has to throw for another “three bucks and change” here to cover this 14-point price tag.

Spread Stat – Pittsburgh is a solid 13-7 spreadwise in its last 20 games overall and that includes five covers in its last seven games.

 

 NOTE: Lots of NFL Week 12 re-caps plus a Monday Night Football preview in the next edition of Jim Sez.
