Several sports handicappers have big NFL bets for Sunday, November 25, week 12 odds. The first is from the author of Sports betting eBook that the bookmakers do not want you to read, Joe Duffy of GodsTips.
MINNESOTA +6.5 Chicago
Yes Jay Cutler is back and much better than Jason Campbell, but the erratic quarterback is coming of an injury and will be protected by an offensive line that has to rebound off horrible effort in a short week.
But the last time Jared Allen saw the Bears, he lit up left tackle J’Marcus Webb for 3.5 sacks in the 2011 season finale. Webb is one of three offensive linemen who kept his job after backup quarterback Jason Campbell was sacked six times by the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night.
The Bears’ defense has proved vulnerable recently to what has been the decided strength of Adrian Peterson all season. Specifically, they have given up at least 80 yards on runs between the tackles in each of their past five games. Peterson, of course, has been gashing teams almost exclusively between the tackles since returning from knee surgery. This season, 174 of his carries, 922 of his yards, six of his touchdowns and 11 of his 20-plus yard runs have come on runs that began between the tackles. There is every reason to believe the Vikings will attack that area early and often, and then probably follow up with a heavy dose of their play-action game.
It is also a bizarre case of one team off a Monday Night Football game, laying lumber to a team off a bye.
Now to the Canadian Crew. Denver Broncos (7-3, 6-4 ATS) vs Kansas City Chiefs (1-9, 3-7 ATS)
Odds: Denver -10.5, 44.5 o/u
Can the Kansas City Chiefs’ long running rivalry with the Broncos trump their current slump? The Broncos are just 14-36 when traveling down the highway to KC and the boisterous Chiefs’ fans can be counted on to make life miserable for the Broncos.
But this year’s Broncos are not the train wrecks of the recent past, and the Chiefs are struggling like never before.
There’s no question that the Broncos have the weapons they need to knock off the Chiefs, even without the services of RB Willis McGahee who is out for five to six weeks with a knee injury. The Bronco running game has multiple replacements on deck, including veteran Knowshon Mereno. In the air, Peyton Manning is back in top form, despite a few slow starts and more interceptions that might be expected.
Defensively, the Broncos are also at peak form and that’s probably the biggest challenge the low-scoring Chiefs are looking at today. KC is scoring just 15 points a game and have gone six games without topping 20 points. Worse yet, they’ve yet to win a single game at home this season. Von Miller and the Broncos defense are already leading the NFL in sacks and we expect them to gain even more ground today.
The Chiefs have been going back and forth between Matt Cassell and Brady Quinn this season and neither one has been able to produce much of anything this season. In last week’s 38-6 loss to Cincinnati, they were sacked a total of four times.
Arrowhead has been a tough place for the Broncos to play in the past, but that may not be the case today. In fact, given fan dissatisfaction, it may be even tougher for the Chiefs if things don’t get off on the right foot.
We think the Broncos will miss McGahee, but that’s not going to slow them down much today. Look for the Broncos to win by a lot more than 10 today.
