Week 12 is in the books, and underdogs reigned supreme at 9-5 ATS.  Overall, favorites now trail at 81-85-5 for the season. Unders went 7-5-2. Overs are still leading decisively for the year at 91-78-4.

Astonishingly, the Las Vegas Supercontest top five consensus picks went a perfect 5-0 ATS this week. Bad news if you were fading them. They are still only 20-38-2 on the year though.

My Week 12 picks went 2-2, but it felt more like 0-4. I lost KC on the final drive and the Broncos in overtime. I knew the Chiefs would have trouble covering once Hali and Houston went down with first half injuries, but losing in that fashion wasn't fun. Even worse, Denver pissed away a 24 point halftime lead and lost the game in OT on a random punt turnover. The bad luck in close games continues (6-20).  The Colts blew up two teasers. I wasn't sure if they would win that game, but I also didn't expect an ass kicking either.

I'll be adding Week 13 picks throughout the week and previews for all the prime-time games, so refresh for updates.

Note*: Due to the holidays, picks will be up Saturday. 


Survivor Pick

Judging by the diminishing amount of votes in the survivor poll, I assume most people have either won their pools or they're already out by now. I'll run it for another week or two, but if interest is dead I'll scrap it until next season. Week 12 was especially cruel to poolies with 6 outright wins from underdogs.

Week 12: Detroit Lions
Week 11: Arizona Cardinals
Week 10: Tennessee Titans
Week 9: Dallas Cowboys
Week 8: New Orleans Saints
Week 7: Green Bay Packers

Week 5: Atlanta Falcons
Week 4: Denver Broncos
Week 3: Seattle Seahawks
Week 2: Houston Texans
Week 1: Indianapolis Colts
