NFL Week 12 trends: Ravens, Cowboys picked to beat the odds

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Spor

Baltimore, San Francisco and Dallas all own important Week 12 betting trends, according to Odds Shark.

Baltimore almost never loses as a home favorite and they are very slight favorites to continue their winning ways in Week 12 against the New York Jets.

The Ravens have lost just twice in 30 recent games as home chalk, according to They haven't always covered the spread, but laying just three points here Sunday gives lots of confidence to Baltimore bettors.

"The fact they are also 8-1 ATS in nine games against the Jets since 1994 doesn't hurt that confidence level," said Jack Randall, an NFL analyst at Odds Shark.

It's one of many key Week 12 betting trends dotting the NFL landscape and being factored into handicapping regimes.

Dallas comes off a bye week aiming to blunt the momentum of the division-rival New York Giants. And two key trends indicate the Cowboys are in good shape to return a profit at the sportsbook window.

The Cowboys are 7-1 ATS past 8 seasons following a bye week and 6-2 ATS in their past eight games as an underdog. They are trying to move into a tie atop the NFC East, while derailing the Giants' hopes of becoming the first NFL to ever start 0-6 and still make the playoffs.

San Francisco also owns a solid trend in the Monday Nighter at Washington. The 49ers have covered the spread in seven straight Monday Night games and they are 6-1 ATS in their past seven as road favorites. The line was climbing from an open of 4 points.
