Have the Los Angeles Rams (7-3 SU, 6-4 ATS) finally run out of gas? They’ve been feasting on soft competition, but they hit a roadblock last week in Minnesota, and they’ll have another tough matchup this Sunday against the visiting New Orleans Saints (8-2 SU, 7-3 ATS), kicking off at 4:25 PM ET on CBS. The Rams are holding steady at –2.5 on the NFL betting lines with a total of 53.5. New Orleans has won eight straight games at 7-1 ATS, but the Saints have also taken advantage of an easy schedule. Nothing will come easy in this battle between the New Orleans offense and the LA defense.

The post-Thanksgiving portion of the Week 12 NFL odds board features the following key matchups, all times Eastern:


Sunday: Buffalo Bills at Kansas City Chiefs (1 PM, CBS)

The Bills (5-5 SU, 5-4-1 ATS) are giving the ball back to quarterback Tyrod Taylor after last week’s experiment with Nathan Peterman failed miserably. Wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is one of several Buffalo players who didn’t practice Wednesday. Kansas City (6-4 SU and ATS) is a 10-point home favorite despite dropping four of their last five SU and ATS.


Sunday: Denver Broncos at Oakland Raiders (4:25 PM, CBS)

Now that he’s healthy, quarterback Paxton Lynch is getting his chance to start for the Broncos (3-7 SU, 2-7-1 ATS) after disappointing performances from Trevor Siemian and Brock Osweiler. The Raiders (4-6 SU, 3-6-1 ATS) are 5-point favorites; they’re coming off a poor showing in Mexico City against the New England Patriots.


Sunday: Green Bay Packers at Pittsburgh Steelers (8:30 PM, NBC)

The Packers (5-5 SU, 4-6 ATS) have lost four of five games SU and ATS since quarterback Brett Hundley took over for the injured Aaron Rodgers. They’re massive 14-point road dogs on the Week 12 NFL lines, with the Steelers (8-2 SU, 6-4 ATS) on a five-game winning streak at 4-1 ATS.


Monday: Houston Texans at Baltimore Ravens (8:30 PM, ESPN)

It’s been rough sailing for the Texans (4-6 SU, 6-4 ATS) since quarterback Deshaun Watson went down with a torn ACL in practice. Tom Savage will be under center when they visit the Ravens (5-5 SU, 5-4-1 ATS), who are laying seven points with a total of 38. Baltimore has the top defense in the NFL through Week 11, and Monday night’s forecast calls for temperatures in the mid-40s.
