We don’t mean to toot our own horn over here at SBL, but we’ve been on an incredible hot streak betting on NFL games this year. We’re not just singing it – we’re bringing it, and you can check our news archive for proof of our multiple undefeated weeks since early September.
No, we haven’t been perfect. The worst week on record thus far in 2023-24 we went 2-2 with our NFL betting picks. Over the past three weeks, our record has been 9-0, and we are loading our pockets with cash.
We’re not stopping there. Oh, no. There are five more weeks remaining before the onset of the NFL Playoffs, and Daddy needs some extra cash for Christmas! Here are our NFL best bets for Week 12.
Detroit Lions @ New Orleans Saints
- Lions Point Spread: -4.0
- Lions Moneyline: -195
- Saints Point Spread: +4.0
- Saints Moneyline: +165
- Over/Under: 46.0
Sunday at 1:00 p.m., the New Orleans Saints host the Detroit Lions at the Superdome. The Saints were clinging to the lead in the NFC South division but have now been overtaken by Atlanta after losing to the Falcons last Sunday by a final score of 24-15.
The Lions suffered a loss on Thanksgiving Day to the Green Bay Packers. They are still the top team in the NFC North division, but they fell to the number three seed behind the San Francisco 49ers with the loss.
We view the Green Bay loss as an outlier in an otherwise dominant season and expect Detroit to finish the year strong. We cannot say the same for the Saints, as they refuse to retain a grip on the weakest division in the National Football League.
We are betting on the Lions to cover the four points on Sunday.
Denver Broncos @ Houston Texans
- Broncos Point Spread: +3.5
- Broncos Moneyline: +165
- Texans Point Spread: -3.5
- Texans Moneyline: -195
- Over/Under: 46.0
Also kicking off at 1:00 p.m. this Sunday are the Houston Texans and visiting Denver Broncos. Houston is on the cusp of playoff contention but fell out of the top seven AFC teams after losing to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 12.
The Broncos are rallying after a terrible beginning to the season. Denver is now 6-5, sporting the same record as Houston. With both franchises competing for the seventh seed, the winner will gain the upper hand going forth.
CJ Stroud has been electric in his rookie season for Houston. While all signs point to a Texans win, something funky is going on in Denver that is throwing a smokescreen over this entire game.
While we’re hesitant to bet on the Broncos or the Texans to win, we are laying some action on the over. We believe both Houston and Denver will combine to score 47 or more points this Sunday.
