Two of the top teams in the AFC will headline the Week 12 NFL schedule when the Tennessee Titans (8-3) visit the New England Patriots (7-4). After starting as 5.5-point favorites in the opening Week 12 NFL odds on Caesars Sportsbook, the Patriots are now favored by a touchdown. Tennessee has only been a road underdog by seven points once before this season against the Los Angeles Rams, but the Titans won that game outright, 28-16.
The biggest inter-conference game on the Week 12 slate takes place at Lucas Oil Stadium, where the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-3) will square off against the Indianapolis Colts (6-5). The Colts have powered through early-season obstacles to become one of the most dangerous teams in the AFC, while the Buccaneers have lost two of their last three. The line hasn't moved off three points since it opened, but which side should you back with your Week 12 NFL bets and NFL parlays?

Top Week 12 NFL picks
After simulating every NFL game 10,000 times, the model is high on the Steelers to cover as three-point underdogs against the Cincinnati Bengals. It's difficult to beat the same team twice in the same season, and Cincinnati drew first blood in the meeting between the two in Week 3. Since then, the high-octane Cincinnati offense has down-shifted a gear and only put up 288 total yards against the Raiders last week.
The Bengals had allowed 1,265 yards of offense from Weeks 7 through 9. Pittsburgh has covered the spread in four of its five games as an underdog this season and will fight tooth-and-nail not to be defeated by Cincinnati again. SportsLine's model predicts that the Steelers keep the score within a field goal in well over 50 percent of all simulations.
