In the meantime, let's discuss where the money is flowing for several NFL Week 12 matchups today...
1 p.m. ET: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Indianapolis Colts
The Bucs (7-3 SU, 4-6 ATS) just dominated the Giants 30-10, easily covering as 10.5-point home favorites. The win snapped a two-game losing skid for Tampa Bay. Meanwhile, the Colts (6-5 SU, 7-4 ATS) have won three straight and are 6-2 in their last 8 games. Indianapolis just crushed Buffalo 41-15, winning outright as 7-point road dogs. This line opened with the Bucs listed as a 3-point road favorite. The public is rushing to the window to lay the points with Tom Brady and the defending champs. However, this line has remained frozen at 3 and even dipped to 2.5 throughout the week, signaling liability on the Colts plus the points. Dogs off a blowout win of 20 points are 17-11 ATS (61%) over the past two seasons. The Colts have a rest advantage as Tampa Bay is on a short week having just played on Monday night.
4:25 p.m. ET: Los Angeles Rams at Green Bay Packers
The Rams (7-3 SU, 4-6 ATS) have lost two straight games, most recently falling to the 49ers 31-10, losing outright as 3.5-point road favorites. Similarly, the Packers (8-3 SU, 9-2 ATS) have lost two of their last three games and just fell to the Vikings 34-31, losing outright as 1.5-point road favorites. This line opened with Green Bay listed as a 1.5-point home favorite. The public is happy to lay the short spread with Aaron Rodgers at Lambeau. However, this line has completely flipped to Rams -2. This indicates sharp "Dog to Favorite" line movement on Los Angeles, who enjoys a rest advantage and are coming off a bye. Sean McVay is 14-7 ATS (67%) off a loss in his career. We've also seen some wiseguy money hit the under, dropping the total from 50 to 47. The forecast calls for cold temperatures (30 degrees) and 10-12 MPH winds. When the wind blows 10 MPH or more the under is 35-16 (69%) this season.
8:20 p.m. ET: Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens
The Browns (6-5 SU, 5-6 ATS) are coming off a 13-10 win over the Lions, although Cleveland failed to cover as 13.5-point home favorites. Meanwhile, the Ravens (7-3 SU, 4-6 ATS) just edged the Bears 16-13, covering as 1-point road favorites. This line opened with Baltimore listed as a 5-point home favorite. Respected money has sided with the road dog Browns, dropping Cleveland from 5 to 3.5. Many books are juicing up the Browns 3.5 to -115, signaling a possible further drop down to the key number of 3. Divisional dogs are 57% ATS this season, with primetime dogs are 22-12 ATS (65%). The total is 47. The forecast calls for 10 MPH winds. Late season divisional unders are roughly 56% the last decade.
