2019 NFL Week 12 Betting
We’ve reached the unofficial three-quarter mark of the season and we have our last byes taking place in Week 12 with the Kansas City Chiefs, Minnesota Vikings, Arizona Cardinals, and Los Angeles Chargers the last teams to enjoy some down time before the home stretch. All but two games on the 14-game docket will take place within the conferences and five games feature divisional matchups. The two interconference tilts should be special with last year’s Super Bowl combatants featured, though not against each other.
Keeping in line with having divisional matchups open the betting week, the NFL is at it again. For the fourth straight week, we get a matchup of division foes with the Texans hosting the Colts in an AFC South confrontation. The teams played a few weeks earlier, but they return to the scene of last year’s playoff contest, a game dominated by Indy, 21-7. The teams split the season series, though Houston was lucky to get its victory, and met in the Wild Card round in their first-ever postseason meeting. The Colts won in Houston for the third straight time and for the sixth time in the last seven games.
It’s all the AFC South for a second week in a row with that division squaring off in the early Sunday window of games. Tampa Bay heads to Atlanta for the first meeting of the season between the clubs. The Falcons have won five in a row in the series and look to continue their dominance. The Saints play the third of four straight games against the division when they host Carolina. Those two games will be replayed in Week 17 with the clubs swapping venues.
The only other game pitting division foes in the early window takes place in Cincinnati where the Bengals host the hated Pittsburgh Steelers. Playoff positioning in each conference is on the line with four NFC matchups. The Bears might be getting their last look at Eli Manning when the Giants visit Soldier Field. The Redskins host Detroit in another North vs. East tussle.
One of the great NFC matchups from the mid-1990s is featured in the late Sunday window. The Packers and 49ers met in the postseason every year from 1996 to 1999 and three other times since then. The rivalry cooled a bit when the Niners went into a funk following the 2013 season. Though he’s been around for several years now, Aaron Rodgers is still pissed the Niners passed on him in the 2005 NFL Draft. And the Niners are equally pissed that they didn’t select him.
It’s a shame that the best team in the NFL over the last two decades and the team that thinks it’s one of the best don’t meet more often. The Patriots and Cowboys will hook up for the first time in four years and just the 13th time ever in a late Sunday game from Foxboro. It’s probably a good thing for the Boys that the teams don’t play more often. They haven’t beaten the Pats since 1996 going 0-5 since then.
The other interconference game closes out the betting week with the Baltimore Ravens and Los Angeles Rams meeting for the very first time. The Ravens came into existence in 1996 one year after the Rams bolted LA for St. Louis. The teams played six times with the last in 2015, the season before the Rams relocated back to Southern California. So, there is some history that will be made on Monday Night Football.
