Office Pool Picks: Week 12

November 22, 2017

It’s Thanksgiving week and that always offers a nice milestone for us to assess how the NFL season is going. This year has been a mixed bag of results, but here’s to hoping we will have many reasons for thanks this week. Here are my picks for Confidence Pool, Survivor and Against the Spread and all of your Week 12 Office Pool Picks.

Here are my picks for this week ahead in the various polls:

16 Patriots vs. MIA
15 Steelers vs. GB
14 Chiefs vs. BUF
13 Eagles vs. CHI
12 Redskins vs. NYG
11 Falcons vs. TB
10 Ravens vs. HOU
09 Seahawks at SF
08 Bengals vs. CLE
07 Titans at IND
06 Vikings at DET
05 Jaguars at ARI
04 Rams vs. NO
03 Chargers at DAL
02 Jets vs. CAR
01 Raiders vs. DEN

Each week I’ll offer up my “playing it safe” and my “out on the limb” pick for your elimination pool:

Playing it safe – Steelers
I am guessing most folks have already used the Patriots, but even if so the Steelers may be the better play. With five double-digit favorites on the slate this week there are plenty of options for sure, but I’ll roll with Big Ben at home on Sunday night against the Aaron Rodgers-less Packers.

Out on a limb – Redskins
After last week’s collapse at New Orleans there’s no telling how this team will respond as they host the Giants, who pulled off the big upset and burned us last week by beating the Chiefs. I don’t usually get drawn into divisional matchups, but expect the ‘Skins to bounce back in a big way here.

AGAINST THE SPREAD (27-26-2 on season)

Pick of the Week
Vikings -3

Other Plays to Consider
Chiefs -10
Broncos +6
Over 46 BUF/KC
Over 44 CHI/PHI
