Well there’s certainly a ton of excitement as we head into Week 12 of the 2019 football season with many teams still battling to come together for a playoff run. However, there’s an interesting development this week at USA offshore sportsbooks for NFL betting when you look at the biggest Underdogs on the board – there are two double digit spreads and one of them isn’t for the Cincinnati Bengals.
No, the “Bungles” aren’t a on a bye, they’re at home against AFC North rivals Pittsburgh, who are only giving away 6½ points to their winless hosts. This actually makes sense when you look at the Steelers’ injury report and notice that JuJu Smith-Schuster, James Conner, and starting center Maurkice Pouncey have all been officially ruled out. In a rare turn of events, Head Bookmaker Pat Morrow and the Bovada Sportsbook are giving an extra half point on the Home Dogs with a line of 7, as well as an inflated moneyline of +250 if Cincy manages to notch their first win of the year. Go hop on these rare gifts while you can.
Now that the Bengals have been addressed, everyone reading this will automatically know the Miami Dolphins are the other team sporting a double digit spread, getting a whopping 10½ points as they roll into Cleveland to take on the frisky Browns. All of the top sites have the same spread but you can get value by betting at MyBookie as they have posted bigger odds of +415 for an outright Fins’ win.
Enough suspense: the squad with a surprise double digit spread is Carolina, getting 10 points in their division battle against New Orleans in the Superdome at 1pm EST. The Panthers have lost two in a row and are hoping to turn things around against Drew Brees and one of the best offenses in professional football. Again M.B. has the biggest underdog odds, paying +375 if the visitors can pull off the upset.
From there the gambling lines tighten up with Dak Prescott and the Cowboys getting 6½ as they visit New England in what could easily end up being the day’s best game. Most shops are hovering around +225 for a Dallas victory but the SportsBetting.ag website for U.S. players has them at +245 for a little extra bump in the balance if it comes through.
The only other line larger than 4½ on Sunday belongs to the New York Giants as they visit Chicago and get 6 points for the trouble. If you like the G Men to surprise the Bears, head to the aforementioned MyBookie to hop on their moneyline of +230. Also lay your Total action there if you want the Under since they currently have the total at 40½ instead of the 39½ that’s posted almost everywhere else.
As always, good luck to all and may the “Double Doinks” bounce your way…
