Tomlin’s Tips: 2021 Week 12 Football Bets


Happy Thanksgiving Day Weekend and welcome to the 2021 Week 12 Football Bets!

Last week saw the best week of my season, as my bets combined with 23-9 Against The Spread. At this point, every aspect of Tomlin’s Tips is in the profitable margin and we look to keep it going with some quick picks for this Thanksgiving Weekend.

As always, a simple disclaimer: sports betting should be entertainment. The 2021 Week 12 Football Bets will not make you rich. Anyone with picks saying they can make you rich is a liar and I would bet against them.

The 2021 Week 12 Football Bets will be about having fun wagering on sports while trying to stay even or break a small profit.

All of the information for the 2021 Week 12 Football Bets is up to date as of November 24th, 2021.

Tomlin’s Tips: 2021 Week 12 Football Bets

Best NFL Bets: 4-1 Last Week, 28-27 Season

Each week I will pick my five best bets for the NFL weekend. This is similar to the most famous handicapping contest in the world, The Las Vegas Supercontest, where the winner gets over a million bucks.

Green Bay Packers PK vs. Los Angeles Rams

I detailed heavily last week about Aaron Rodgers’ struggles on the road and Kirk Cousins’ positive trends in the noontime slot, along with Green Bay’s luck in close games. Well, that all came true and it is a new week. I think the Packers are a little undervalued here, as the line is saying that the Rams are clearly better on a neutral field which I just do not feel is the case.

Atlanta Falcons -2 at Jacksonville Jaguars

Atlanta plays the bad teams well. Of the Falcons’ opponents with four wins or less, the Falcons are 3-0 SU and ATS.

Las Vegas Raiders +8 at Dallas Cowboys (THURSDAY)

With no Amari Cooper and likely no Ceedee Lamb, along with Ezekiel Elliott being less than 100%, the Cowboys’ offense will be too crippled to lay more than a touchdown.

Philadelphia Eagles -3 at New York Giants

The Giants have fired their offensive coordinator, their best offensive player, Saquon Barkley, looks nothing close to 100%, and their offensive line has their own injury issues.

Buffalo Bills -4 at New Orleans Saints (THURSDAY)

I just think the Bills bounce back well here.

Other NFL Games Picked: 9-2 Last Week, 58-53 Season

(HOME teams in CAPS)

NFL 10-Point Teaser of the Week: 1-0 Last Week, 7-4 Season

Packers +10, Steelers +14.5 and Colts/Buccaneers OVER 40

I think the first two teams win and the last game is a shootout.

Others I Like: Raiders +18, Patriots +4, Falcons +8, Eagles +7, Ravens +7, and Steelers/Bengals UNDER 56 (4-2 Last Week, 58-8 Season)

Game total of the Week: 0-1 Last Week, 8-3 Season

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Indianapolis Colts, OVER 50

This game has shootout written all over it.

College Best Bets: 9-5 Last Week, 50-44 Season

Texas Longhorns -3 vs. Kansas State Wildcats

I mean, can the Longhorns really end the year on an 8-game losing streak?

Oklahoma Sooners +4.5 at Oklahoma State Cowboys

The Sooners have absolutely owned the Cowboys for the better part of a decade. And you have to realize: when OU wins this game, they will be right back in the CFP picture.

Baylor Bears -14 vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders

The Red Raiders’ offense is in shambles after getting shut out for the first time since 1997. They will not be able to hang with the Bears.

Ohio State Buckeyes -7 at Michigan Wolverines

Ohio State has a timeshare in Jim Harbaugh’s head, and they are on a mission to leave no doubts about their playoff positioning.

UTSA Road Runners -10 at North Texas Mean Green

The Road Runners can smell a big bowl game and are a couple of big blowouts from reaching one.

Texas A&M Aggies -6 at LSU Tigers

LSU is getting over-valued because they hung with Alabama and Arkansas. They have just one win over a Power Five team with a winning record.
