Two last-place teams will battle when the Denver Broncos visit the Carolina Panthers in Week 12. Denver's visions of contention after the acquisition of Russell Wilson are up in smoke. Denver has been propped up by its defense, one of the best units in the NFL. The Broncos are allowing just 302.1 yards per game, the third-best mark in the sport. Carolina's own quarterback acquisition, Baker Mayfield, has played so poorly that it'll be Sam Darnold under center on Sunday. The Broncos are one-point favorites in the latest Week 12 NFL odds at Caesars Sportsbook. Which Week 12 NFL lines should you target with your Week 12 NFL bets?

Top Week 12 NFL picks
After simulating every game 10,000 times, the model is high on the Seattle Seahawks (-4) to cover against the Las Vegas Raiders. The Raiders are allowing the highest opposing passer rating in the NFL, which is positive news for Geno Smith.
Smith, a longtime journeyman, has burst onto the scene this year. Smith's 108 passer rating is the second-best in the league, trailing only Miami's Tua Tagovailoa. The Raiders' porous passing defense should afford Smith plenty of opportunities to get the ball to Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf and eat up chunks of the field. Both longtime Seattle fixtures have thrived with Smith under center, and that should remain the case with Las Vegas coming to town. That is one reason the Seahawks are covering the spread in over 50% of simulations. See which other NFL parlay picks to make here.
