NFL Betting: SU Picks for Week 12 of the 2020 Season

Posted by Aaron . on November 24, 2020 in

Week 12 of the National Football League season has arrived.  It’s been quite the season so far, and now we move into the final weeks before the postseason. Thanksgiving Week is always interesting, with a trio of games on Thursday. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite Straight Up picks for the action in Week 12 so you can place your bets against their NFL odds!

2020 NFL Straight-Up Picks For Week 12

Houston Texans over Detroit Lions

Houston is coming off a massive win over the New England Patriots. While it’s likely too little too late for the Texans to reach the postseason, this team seems to be heading on the right track. Houston features DeShaun Watson, who has been solid, with 20 touchdowns and 5 interceptions on the season. Look for Houston to get Watson chances to throw the ball all over a Lions defense that is not great. Detroit seems to be a mess right now. Despite being at home, we are taking the Lions to lose. Bet Houston.

Dallas Cowboys over Washington Football Team

Two teams fighting for first place in the NFC East. This should be an interesting one. Zeke and the Cowboys have a chance. It’s hard to imagine them not being able to take advantage of this one. Thanksgiving Day. Andy Dalton takes care of the football enough, and gives it to his bell cow. Bet the Dallas Cowboys at home on Thanksgiving Day!

Pittsburgh Steelers over Baltimore Ravens

This one will be an interesting game to watch. The Pittsburgh Steelers are unbeaten, and the Ravens have their backs against the wall. Now, Baltimore has some COVID-19 issues with their roster. This is going to be interesting for sure. Look for Pittsburgh to take care of business at home, and basically take the AFC North with them. Betting on Pittsburgh at home seems to be the wise choice.

Atlanta Falcons over Las Vegas Raiders

This one may surprise some people. Both teams are coming off a loss in Week 11. The Raiders had a great game with the Chiefs, while the Falcons struggled in the loss to the Saints. But, look for Atlanta to get their offense going, and the Raiders to fall into a bit of a trap. We are taking the Falcons to win this game straight up at home on Sunday.

Buffalo Bills over Los Angeles Chargers

Quietly, the Buffalo Bills are one of the best teams in the National Football League. The Chargers are coming off a win over the Jets, but they did so in pretty ugly fashion. Buffalo is ready to make a late season push and improve their playoff position week after week. Look for a big game from Josh Allen, while the Bills defense bottles up the Chargers. Bet Buffalo.

Green Bay Packers over Chicago Bears

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are coming off a loss. Look out, Bears. Chicago does not have a starting quarterback lined up for the game. Things do not look to be setting up well for Chicago. This is going to get ugly on Sunday Night Football. Bet the Packers to beat the Bears.

We really like these games this weekend. These are not games against the spread, rather, they are straight up picks. Enjoy the weekend of the National Football League and best of luck with all your betting!
