The NFL races are starting to take form and each game increases in magnitude. Let’s take a look at the spreads and totals at the New Jersey sportsbooks for Week 12.

Where to bet on the NFL in NJ

Week 12 betting breakdown

Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 22)

Bears (-2.5) at Lions: Good test for the mettle of this Bears’ team on a short week against a team they beat two weeks ago. However, this time they might have to do with without Mitch Trubisky. Most of the early money at BetStars is coming in on the Lions: 66% on the moneyline and 90% on the spread as of Wednesday.

Redskins at Cowboys (-7): Alex Smith’s injury puts Washington behind the eight ball in this one. We’re assuming Colt McCoy will start at QB after he fell just short of completing a comeback against Houston on Sunday. Dallas was getting 99% of the bets on the moneyline and 89% of spread bets at BetStars as of Wednesday morning.

Falcons at Saints (-13): The Saints haven’t lost since they got upset in the opener by Tampa. Bettors at BetStars are wagering heavy on the Saints moneyline (90%), Falcons spread (86%) and the over (80%) as of Wednesday.

Sunday (Nov. 25)

Browns at Bengals (-1): Feeling dangerous about backing the Browns on the road? Their last win in the series was in Cincinnati in 2014. Andy Dalton enters a career 11-3 against the Browns. But this is a new regime in Cleveland.

Jaguars (-3) at Bills: This was a playoff game last year, remember? The Bills are coming off a bye and the Jags nearly upset Pittsburgh at home. The low total is worth keeping an eye on if you want to bet an over/under this week.

Patriots (-11) at Jets: Give Belichick and Brady two weeks to stew over an embarrassing loss at Tennessee and unleash them against a rookie QB? Reminder: Brady is 25-7 all-time against the Jets. Might be why FanDuel moved this all the way to -13 as of Sunday morning.

Giants at Eagles (-4): Two teams on opposite trajectories in a division that’s completely up for grabs. This opened at Philly -5 and moved to -6 as of Wednesday, then back to -4 as the weekend approached.

Raiders at Ravens (-12): The Ravens looked pretty good running the ball without Joe Flacco last week. The Raiders look like a literal mutiny, even after beating Arizona on the road. As of Monday, Oakland was getting a full point extra value at FanDuel. But watch for the line to move if Flacco is cleared to play.

49ers at Buccaneers (-2): Jameis Winston won his 2016 start in San Fran with three touchdown passes. Good chance to earn that contract extension here.

Seahawks at Panthers (-3.5): Carolina has been a much better team at home than on the road, facing a team coming cross country but with extra rest. Seattle has won five of the last six in this rivalry.

Cardinals at Chargers (-14): Two teams coming off close, late losses last week. Books were consistent with the spread and total across the board on Monday. The line moved from 11.5 to 13 as of Wednesday.

Dolphins at Colts (-9): These two teams are part of a 5-5 logjam for the last AFC wild card spot. Andrew Luck has split two starts against Miami, although he hasn’t faced them since 2013.

Steelers (-3) at Broncos: Big Ben enters 1-2 in the regular season against Denver. DraftKings, PlaySugarHouse, and 888Sport gave the hook to the Broncos at open.

Packers at Vikings (-3.5): Rematch of the September tie between these two division rivals. Both teams are coming off losses.

Titans at Texans (OFF): Tennessee has struggled with consistency while Houston gets the heavy recency bias from their win streak. The game was listed on a few boards Monday and then removed on Tuesday.
