It’s the week for giving thanks, and the 89% of NFL survivor pool entries that made it out of Week 11 have much to be thankful for. There will be plenty of big spreads over the next few days and they won’t be limited to the dinner table. Five teams on this week’s slate are favored by two scores.
Before we dig into Week 12’s plate, let’s evaluate Week 11’s leftovers:
Week 11 picks
Best Bets: 2-0 (YTD: 11-10)
Leans: 1-0 (YTD: 12-3)
Traps to avoid: 1 elimination avoided (YTD: 13)
On to the Week 12 picks!

Many analysts predicted Los Angeles would experience the infamous “Super Bowl hangover” this season, but I don’t think anyone expected them to be 3-7 at this point. Even before injuries started piling up, this was a bad team with an irredeemable offense.
The defense hasn’t been that much better, generating pressure like a broken shower head. Only the Falcons have a lower QB pressure percentage than the Rams (14.1%). They’re best against the run, which won’t help much against a pass-heavy Kansas City team that’s won 25 straight games in November and December.
The Chiefs’ offense leads the league in points per drive, as Patrick Mahomes looks like a lock for MVP. Los Angeles QB Matthew Stafford will miss this game with a concussion, leaving Bryce Perkins in line for the start behind a decimated offensive line that’s allowed the third-most sacks. The Rams have lost six of their last seven games and enter this contest with four consecutive losses. They won’t be breaking that streak on Sunday.
Kansas City is the fifth-most popular pick this week, at 3.52%. Their future value lies in a Week 15 game at Houston.
New York suffered a year’s worth of injuries in last week’s loss to the Lions, leaving them without their top two cornerbacks, the majority of their offensive line, and their emerging rookie receiver. Dallas leads the NFL in sacks per game (4.2) by a healthy margin and will spend their Thanksgiving feasting on Daniel Jones.
