5 NFL Picks Against the Spread (ATS) for Week 12

Thanksgiving week once again serves up a tripleheader of NFL action on Thursday, but the rest of the weekend has some good storylines and betting lines to pay attention to once Sunday rolls around. The AFC South features a major game with first place on the line between the Titans and Colts. Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs head to Tampa to face Tom Brady and the Buccaneers, a game that could still be a possible Super Bowl preview if the right pieces fall into place.

And then there are the floundering New York Jets. They actually make an appearance in some of the top picks for this weekend around the National Football League.

Here are five games to keep tabs on this Thanksgiving weekend.

Note: All times are ET and games are on Sunday, Nov. 29.

Las Vegas (-3.0) at Atlanta, 1 p.m.

Jon Gruden has successfully revived the career of Derek Carr. Matt Ryan may be a tad jealous. The Raiders, fresh off a good effort against the Chiefs last weekend, will head to Atlanta and return home with a comfortable win. Raiders 34, Falcons 26

Oakland Raiders 2019 Schedule

Tennessee (+3.5) at Indianapolis, 1 p.m.

The Colts have a lot going well for them and look to be the team to beat in the AFC South this season after their big win over Green Bay last weekend. But the Titans managed to score a big win against the Ravens and look to make another statement about the hierarchy in the division this weekend. They'll do just that. Titans 30, Colts 27

Miami (-7.0) at New York Jets, 1 p.m.

The Jets are in full tank mode once again, a gentle reminder that there is at least some normalcy in this bizarre 2020. Tua Tagovailoa will look forward to throttling the Jets to keep the Dolphins in the thick of the playoff push. Dolphins 32, Jets 20

Kansas City (-3.5) at Tampa Bay, 4:25 p.m.

There is no question the Buccaneers are a much more competitive team this season with some new additions to the roster (a Hall of Fame quarterback helps regardless of the age), but the Chiefs continue to be on a roll. Patrick Mahomes and company should pack plenty of offense that will be difficult even for a talented Bucs offense to keep pace with. This one should be a dandy, but give the edge to Andy (Reid). Chiefs 37, Bucs 32

Green Bay (-7.5) vs. Chicago, 8:20 p.m. (SNF)

Following the injury suffered by Nick Foles in the Bears' Week 10 loss before their bye, could they go back to Mitchell Trubisky at quarterback? Matt Nagy is keeping that decision close to the vest, but it may not matter. The Packers are going to take care of business a week after losing a tough one on the road against the Colts. Packers 29, Bears 18
