It was a largely public Sunday in NFL Week 12 action, with favorites going 6-5 ATS and overs going 6-5. We also saw home field advantage strike back yesterday, with home teams going 8-3 SU and ATS. The public cleaned up on popular favorites like the Ravens (-3, beat Browns 16-10) and Bucs (-3, beat Colts 38-31). Contrarians cashed bigly on the Jets ( 2.5, beat Texans 21-14), Giants ( 4, beat Eagles 13-7) and Broncos ( 3, beat Chargers 28-13).
Now it's on to Monday where we have Monday Night Football along with 9 NBA games, 4 NHL games and several College Basketball games to choose from. For an updated breakdown of Monday's betting action, be sure to tune in to the VSiN Market Insights Podcast with Josh Appelbaum. It will be posted by 1 p.m. ET. I'll also be joining The Lombardi Line at 1:30 p.m. ET and then co-hosting Betting Across America with Mike Pritchard from 3 to 4 p.m. ET.
In the meantime, let's discuss where the money is flowing for the final game of NFL Week 12...
8:15 p.m. ET: Seattle Seahawks at Washington Football Team
This Monday Night showdown features two below .500 NFC teams trending in opposite directions. The Seahawks (3-7 SU, 5-5 ATS) started the season 2-2 but have gone just 1-5 since. Seattle just fell to Arizona 23-13, losing outright as 5.5-point home favorites. Meanwhile, Washington (4-6 SU, 3-7 ATS) has won two straight and just upset the Panthers 27-21, winning outright as 3.5-point road dogs.
This line opened with Seattle listed as a short 1.5-point road favorite. The early lookahead line on this game was Seattle -3.5 at some shops. Early in the week, big money steamed Washington, flipping the Football team from a 1.5-point home dog to a 1.5-point home favorite. Over the past few days, some buyback on Seahawks 1.5 has dropped the line down to a pick'em. According to BetMGM, 55% of bets and 56% of money is on the Seahawks. Monday Night Football home teams are 10-1 straight up this season.
The total hasn't budged off the opener of 46.5. The Seahawks are 8-1-1 to the under this season. Washington is 5-5 to the total. Primetime unders are 18-16 (53%) on the season, but are 16-8 over the past two months. The forecast calls for clear skies, low 30s with 5-10 MPH wind. Clay Martin, the lead ref, has historically favored road teams (66% ATS) and unders (57%).
