NFL Betting Previews – Sunday, November 27, 2011

November 27, 2011

Five of the six highest-scoring teams in the league are featured in the Week 12 edition of our high-octane NFL betting matchups, as the Packers, Saints, Lions, Patriots, and Bears all look to keep the OVER paydays rolling in for totals bettors (all times Eastern):

New England at Philadelphia (Sunday 4:15 pm FOX)

The Patriots (5-5 O/U) appear to be rolling again, erupting for a combined 71 points in winning their past two games by at least three touchdowns in NFL betting results. Tom Brady and the offense ranks second overall in total yards (426.7 per game) and passing yards (315.7 per game), and fourth in the league in scoring at almost 30 points per game. On defense the Pats rank dead last in both total yards (404.2 per game) and passing yards (299.5 per game).

The Eagles (5-5 O/U) got 258 passing yards and a pair of touchdowns from a rusty Vince Young last week in knocking off the division-rival Giants in a result that preserved their longshot playoff hopes for another week. Michael Vick could return to start at home against the Pats, and RB DeSean Jackson is expected to play despite suffering a foot injury last week. The Eagles lead the league in rushing yards (168.1 per game) and rank third in total yards (415.6 per game), while the defense is allowing more than 21 points per game to rank 17th overall.

The OVER is 21-8 in New England’s past 29 games, and 10-4 in its past 14 road games. The OVER is 4-2 in the past six matchups between these two teams, dating back to 1987.

Honorable Mentions

Chicago at Oakland:
With Jay Cutler injured, Caleb Hanie will start for the Bears (6-4 O/U) as they gun for their sixth consecutive victory in NFL betting results. While Chicago has scored at least 30 points in four of those five wins, Hanie has thrown just 14 passes (with eight completions) in three seasons as a backup with the Bears. Nonetheless, Matt Forte is the fourth-leading rusher in the league and place-kicker Robbie Gould has nailed 23 of his 25 field-goal attempts so the Bears should still be able to score some points.

Meanwhile the Raiders (5-5 O/U) have won two straight with Carson Palmer at the helm and boast the league’s third-best rushing attack (156.8 yards per game) with Michael Bush filling in admirably for Darren McFadden. The OVER is 5-1 in Chicago’s past six games on grass, and this matchup shapes up as a battle of talented running backs punctuated by the occasional downfield scoring bomb. Both teams desperately need a victory to stay in the playoff chase.

N.Y. Giants at New Orleans:
The Giants (5-4-1 O/U) have lost their past two games but remain tied with Dallas atop the NFC East and rank fifth overall in passing yards (281.4 per game). The Saints (5-5 O/U) have won two in a row to take over first place in the NFC South and rank first in the league in passing yards (319.4 per game) and second in scoring (31.3 per game).

Conditions inside the Superdome will of course be perfect for an aerial shootout between Eli Manning and Drew Brees, in this pivotal NFC showdown on Monday Night Football. The OVER is 9-4 in the Giants’ past 13 games as an underdog, and 5-1 in their past six games against a team with a winning record. The OVER is 4-0 in New Orleans’ past four games following a bye.
