As the betting lines begin to emerge for Week 12, there are several eye-catching matchups. Although there is no blatantly obvious mismatch on the schedule, the initial spreads have been favorable to picking the already thriving teams. The oddsmakers are placing their faith in the underdogs this weekend, but that doesn't mean you should be.
That said, the NFL is a league of parity and surprises. Although the experts do their best to accurately predict the result of each and every game, no outcome is ever guaranteed. A week ago, we watched the lowly Cincinnati Bengals dismantle the defending Super Bowl champions by a staggering margin. On Sunday, we saw a rookie quarterback in Robert Griffin III throw four touchdowns against the league's 12th-ranked pass defense.
There is no such thing as an absolute, surefire lock in the NFL. However, if there were, these would be the games you should be willing to bet the farm on.
