Week 12 in the NFL has the more lazy of us sitting back grazing on turkey and passively watching the game. Not us, though: we grind. And it is a grind this week. Pinnacle appears to be trying to take profit this week, offering us very little opportunity to lower sportsbook edge. 5Dimes to the rescue, with some really great dog lines and bet365 makes some of these dogs look more appealing with valuable favorite lines. Below are links to the spreadsheets where you can fill in your own odds to find value.
You’ll also notice that the 5Dimes NFL Odds Section is taking shape. Updated throughout the day, the sheet contains all the odds and calculations to place your bets. Look for more book added in the coming week.
Week 12 Best Bet: Washington Redskins / Dallas Cowboys
Long odds on this one but 5Dimes is showing us some great dog value giving us a combined sportsbook edge of 1.5%. You’ve got a healthy Romo dancing on the sidelines like a kindergartner that has to take a leak and no one really feeling that Prescott will both QB every game or that the Cowboys will remain winless. This could be the week, and the edge is low enough that it could be of value.
Week 12 Best Bet: Minnesota Vikings / Detroit Lions
Another Thanksgiving matchup and I will give you the same advice I gave a few of my clients: I never bet on Lions game because I am a long-suffering fan of the motor city and don’t want bias to interfere. That said, the Vikings have the healthier team and Detroit is like the Eeyore of pro football this year…every year. Get in on this 1.64% sportsbook edge and close odds making this one of the most valuable buys for the conservative bettor this week.
Week 12 Best Bet: Tennessee Titans / Chicago Bears
Finally a Sunday matchup worth discussing. The odds are just on the cusp of being a valuable purchase for favored Titans backers, but the low sportsbook edge may tempt those that believe the Bears at home with the dropping temperature may be the right combination. With a 1.7% sportsbook edge, this is another great option for the more risk ready bettor.
