After nine consecutive weeks of .500 or better, our free NFL picks took a step backwards last week. A less-than-stellar 6-7-1 knocked things off track, but the stage is set for a bounce back week.
Last week there were three games in double digits, but that number is down to just one in Week 12. That one game is the Kansas City Chiefs hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers, and with the home team acquiring Kyle Orton, that number could come down between now and Sunday.
There are also 11 lines currently at seven points or less, including seven of four points or less.
Here are the picks for all of the Week 12 NFL games. Hopefully this last minute help will help you navigate the choppy waters.
