After a great Thanksgiving Day triple header on Friday, the NFL continues with an 11-game slate on Monday, kicking off from 5am.
As always, we have you covered with NFL betting tips for every game below.
NFL Week 12 Monday Betting Tips
Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinatti Bengals
Easily the game of the early slate sees divisional rivals facing off as the Bengals host the Steelers from Cincinnati. A Super Bowl fancy for many tipsters at the start of the season, the Bengals currently sit last in the AFC North with a 5-5 record, and will need to kickstart the back half of their season with a home win here if they plan to make the playoffs. Their offence has struggled throughout the season so far, averaging just 20.2 points per game, ranked 25th in the league.
The Steelers find their own offence ranked four spots lower, avreaging just 16.6 points per game this season, however, they are 6-4 and a win here would pull them level with the 2nd placed Cleveland Browns in the division. They are coming off a disappointing loss to the Browns in Week 11, where they put up just 10 points.
The AFC North is such a hotly contested division at the moment that every matchup between two of these teams has a heightened sense of meaning. A win for either team would put them right back into contention while a loss, particularly for the Bengals, would almost mark the end of their playoff ambitions. I think it'll be a tight tussle with not a lot of points scored here, the two teams both sit in the bottom 10 ranked offences and an average of just 32.75 points have been scored in the last four Steelers games.
- The last five straight Steelers road games have all gone under the total, while the unders are 77-53-3 in road games under current coach Mike Tomlin.
- The Bengals are 6-1 against teh spread in their last seven games as an underdog
Under 36.5 Total Points
Buffalo Bills at Philadelphia Eagles
The Bills bounced back from a two game losing streak to record a dominant victory over the Jets in Week 12, putting up 32 points on the back of a solid game from QB Josh Allen. A trecherous run of games for the Bills kicks off this week though, as they face the Eagles, Chiefs and Cowboys over the next three weeks. At 6-5 and in 2nd place in the AFC East, they'll definetely need to win one and likely two of those games to stay in contention for the playoffs.
The Eagles continue to look the dominant team of the season so far, currently sitting atop the NFC East with a 9-1 record having won their last four games on the trot. They got the job done in a close game against the Chiefs in Week 12, winning 21-17 to cover the spread in their 2nd straight. They are 6-2-2 against the spread this season, the fourth ranked team in the league in that regard.
I like the unders here. The bookmakers have kept the Bills totals high throughout the season despite them being below avearge on offence. The unders are 8-3 in the 11 Bills games this season and have hit in their last four straight games.
- In Bills road games over the last two seasons, the unders are an overwhelming 10-2.
- The Bills have not been underdogs of 3+ points since all the way back in Week 14 of 2021. Josh Allen is 11-5-1 against the spread as a road underdog over the course of his career.
Under 48.5 Total Points
Baltimore Ravens at LA Chargers
The Ravens bounced back from a close loss to the Browns in Week 10 with a solid win over the Bengals on Thursday night football in Week 11. They'll have the benefit of a full 10 day break when they take on the Chargers on Sunday, and they'll start as 3 point favourites on the road. They are 7-4 against the spread this season and maintain the No.2 ranked defence in the league, allowing just 16.1 points per game.
The Chargers have been one of the more unlucky teams in the compeition through the opening 11 weeks. They are 4-6 on the season but five of those six losses have come by a margin of three points or fewer. Their offence has been solid, ranked 8th in the league putting up 25.9 points per game on the back of a strong year from Justin Herbert.
Love the overs in this game. Despite the Ravens strong defence, they have still allowed 26.5 points per game over their last two, and the Chargers have shown they can put up scores against good teams this season, posting 34 in a loss to the Dolphins, 28 in a win over the Vikings and 38 in a loss to the Lions.
- Seven of the past eight Chargers games have gone under the total. On the contrary, four of the past five Ravens games have gone over the total.
- Lamar Jackson is an impressice 22-11-2 against the spread in road regular season games over the course of his career.
