SPREADING CHEDDAR: The One Stop Gambling Shop – Week 12

You’ve come to the right place. Whether you like to hedge your fantasy matchups or double-down on your favorite team, there will be enough lucrative bets posted here each week to increase your wallet size. I will post my favorite picks from game lines, over/unders, and sprinkle in some player prop bets to keep it spicy. If the mood strikes, you can expect some parlays to carry through the entire weekend as well. After a fantastic start to the season, the past few weeks have been brutal. It’s time to get back to basics and right the ship in Week 12.

2020 Season Results: -6.8 Units
2020 Overall Record: 41-41-1 (50%)

Spreads

4U: Kansas City -3.5 (-110) at Tampa Bay – Tampa Bay is reeling and hosts Kansas City at one of the worst possible times. Tom Brady is 0-for-19 in his last 19 passes that are over 20 yards. Looking more and more like a weak link in this offense, the dysfunction will not be able to keep pace with Kansas City.

4U: Pittsburgh -3.5 (-110) vs. Baltimore – The Baltimore defense has fallen off a cliff these past few weeks, and it will be even more hindered with all of the positive COVID tests that have been popping out. A Pittsburgh win puts it inches away from officially locking up the AFC North title.

4U: Seattle -5 (-110) at Philadelphia – Despite being in first place in the NFC East, Carson Wentz is on the hot seat, and rightfully so. Chris Carson returns for Seattle which will restore the efficiency we saw at the beginning of the year.

3U: Houston -3 (-110) at Detroit – There is one person on the field that matters in this game, and it is Deshaun Watson. Matthew Stafford returned last week for Detroit and the team wasn’t even able to score any points against Carolina’s Panthers below average defense.

3U: New York Giants -6 (-110) at Cincinnati – Losing Joe Burrow to a torn ACL is not only a blow to Cincinnati, but to the NFL as a whole. Cincinnati has the third-worst defense and will be without Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard, so scoring points will prove difficult.

Over/Under

3U: Los Angeles Rams vs. San Francisco: Over 45 (-110) – The Rams have found their groove on offense and San Francisco is likely getting key playmakers like Deebo Samuel and Raheem Mostert back. This will be anything but a defensive slug-fest.

Thursday Props

3U: Jordan Akins Over 31.5 Receiving Yards (-115) – Houston has three pass catching tight ends and usage comes in streaks. Akins is coming off an 87-yard game and should be able to eclipse a third of that with ease.

3U: J.D. McKissic Over 27.5 Receiving Yards (-115) – Alex Smith has a new best friend when he needs someone to bail him out. While the games of 14 and 15 targets are highly unlikely to repeat, McKissic just needs three catches to hit this mark.

2U: Will Fuller Over 70.5 Receiving Yards (-115) – The Detroit secondary is one of the least efficient at defending the deep ball. Houston will take its deep shots often with Fuller.

2U: Antonio Gibson Over 14.5 Receiving Yards (-115) – Gibson is averaging over three targets and 21 receiving yards over the last three games. His usage and snap count will continue to be steady as long as he produces.

Week 11 Recap

4U: Baltimore -6 (-110) vs. Tennessee – Loss

4U: Kyler Murray Over 57.5 Rushing Yards (-115) – Loss

3U: Green Bay +2.5 (-110) at Indianapolis – Loss

3U: Arizona +3 (-110) at Seattle – Loss
