Monday Night Football: Ravens @ Rams
The last game of week 12 kicks off at 8.15PM ET in Los Angeles where the Rams host the Ravens.
Ravens are 8 - 2 after ten matches while Rams have won 6 out of 10. Ravens haven't lost in 5 and it would be a surprise if the home team could stop them tonight.
This contest could be a tight one though - that's why our pick is the moneyline and not the spread, even though that pays off slightly less than the spread bet would (Ravens to cover -3.5 pays off 1.90).
Enjoy the Monday Night Football and good luck with your bets!
Indianapolis @ Houston: 21/11/19 @ 8:20 PM ET
Fans are surely fired up for this game, as both the Texans and Colts stand at 6-4 at the top of the AFC South standings. The winner of this one will then have a hold on first place of the division and give their postseason hopes some momentum.
So, who wants it more? The Texans are coming off a terrible showing against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 11, as they suffered a 41-7 defeat. Deshaun Watson was humbled by Baltimore's defense and will look to bounce back.
As for Indianapolis, they TOOK it to the Jaguars in Jacoby Brissett's return from injury. The quarterback threw for 148 yards and a touchdown, while adding another score on the ground in his team's 33-13 win.
The NFL odds have the Texans as four-point favorites to leave the stadium with a victory. We believe Watson will lead his team to victory and also cover the spread.

Dallas @ New England: 24/11/19 @ 4:25 PM ET
While Sunday has some tremendous meetings on the schedule, this is the Game of the Week. Arguably two of the most-hated teams in the country, both Dallas and New England are once again enjoying strong campaigns.
This year for the Patriots, though, it has been their defense that's led the way, while Tom Brady and the offense have had their struggles. This was proven in their 17-10 victory over the Eagles last Sunday.
The Dallas offense is loaded, with Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott and Amari Cooper paving the way. Will New England be able to rattle the Cowboys offense en route to another close win?
New England is a 6.5-point favorite at home. We don't think they'll cover the spread, but we're picking them to win straight up.

Green Bay @ San Francisco: 24/11/19 @ 8:15 PM ET
If it wasn't for the Cowboys and Patriots facing off, this tilt would no doubt be the No. 1 game to watch on Sunday. Green Bay against San Francisco? This is a great way to spend your Sunday night.
The Packers are coming off a bye, while the 49ers recorded a dramatic win over the Cardinals on Sunday. This came six days after suffering a loss to the Seahawks, their first of the year.
The 49ers are 3-point favorites against Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams and Co., but we're throwing that number out the door.
San Francisco hasn't looked as strong over its last two games. Will Green Bay be able to stun them in primetime? Call it an upset, we're going with the Packers, which will look to bolster its Super Bowl odds.
Week 12 parlay free pick: Falcons + Browns + Bears
Last week, our Week 11 moneyline parlay of the Rams, Raiders and Saints hit with ease. Will we have the same luck for Week 12?
We think so, as we've got another promising three-team parlay for fans to consider. We've got the Falcons over the Bucs, the Browns taking down Miami and the Bears defeating the Giants.
With Matt Ryan back under center and running the offense, he'll give Tampa Bay fits. The Dolphins remain one of the worst teams in the NFL, while Cleveland is starting to find its form and has won two consecutive games.
• Falcons moneyline (1.46) over the Bucs
• Browns moneyline (1.20) over the Dolphins
• Bears moneyline (1.38) over the Giants
Although Chicago's offense has struggled, its defense remains elite and will look to give NY rookie quarterback Daniel Jones all kinds of issues.
Just like last week, we're feeling great about our picks going into the weekend.
