Week 12 NFL Parlays to Back: New York Style and Big Scoring

Week 12 NFL Parlays to Back: New York Style and Big Scoring

Are home teams starting to find an edge in crowdless stadiums? It would appear so. There was next-to-zero homefield advantage through the first half of the 2020 NFL season. But that trend is changing.

The last three weeks home teams are 24-15-1 against the spread, a healthy 61.5% win rate. Home favorites are 15-10 in that run (60%) and home underdogs are doing even better, at 9-5 (64.3%).

Overall, home teams are 78-80-4 ATS. If they finish anywhere near .500, that’s way, way better than last year, when they were only 65-93-4 (41.1%) despite winning 51.6% of their games.

Here are our two NFL betting parlays for Week 12 of the NFL season:

The “New York Style” Parlay

Leg 1: Jets +7 vs. Dolphins

Tua Tagovailoa is 3-1 as a starter, but he has only played well in one of those games and the Dolphins’ defense has critical issues that aren’t found in their fourth-ranked ppg results. Can the Jets take advantage and get their first “W?” Three of their last four losses have been by eight points or less. They can, at least, hang within a TD.

Leg 2: Giants -5.5 at Bengals

The Giants have been playing much better the last few weeks, while the Bengals forge on without Joe Burrow. Brandon Allen is starting at QB for the Bengals and Cincy might fold if Daniel Jones leads New York to a quick lead.

Leg 3: Chargers +6 at Bills

Week 12 NFL Parlays to Back: New York Style and Big Scoring 1

The Chargers are the NFL’s downtrodden underachiever, but there is still too much talent to get rocked out of the stadium. Three times L.A. has gotten six-plus points as the underdog, and it covered in all three. Conversely, Buffalo has laid more than four points three times since Week 1 and is 0-3 ATS.

The “Big Scoring” Parlay

Leg 1: Browns -6.5 at Jaguars

The Browns have a winning formula and they feast on cupcakes, averaging nearly 40 ppg against opponents with losing records (in games not played in blinding rain, that is). Jacksonville ranks in the bottom five in total offense and defense, the QB situation isn’t good and the Jaguars ride a nine-game losing streak. Most of those losses were by more than a TD. This one should be, too.

Leg 2: Cardinals-Patriots Over 48.5

No team piles on the yards like the Cardinals. But their defense has a lot of issues and traveling cross-country for an early game won’t help. Cam Newton and any running back with the ball with find opportunities. Kyler Murray will, too, with his arm and his legs.

Leg 3: Panthers-Vikings Over 48.5

Only one of the past eight Vikings games has finished under 50 points — and that was against a Bears team with a great defense and no offense. Minnesota scores points and doesn’t stop other teams. The Panthers blanked the Lions last week but the previous two games totaled 69 and 64 points. They’ve found ways to score without Christian McCaffrey, and can do so here against Minnesota’s 22nd-ranked D.
