Six of the Jacksonville Jaguars' seven losses this season have been within one score, and after their Week 11 bye, they are just 3.5-point home underdogs to Baltimore in the Week 12 NFL odds at Caesars Sportsbook. The 7-3 Ravens have consistently found ways to win, but are just 3-5 against the spread as NFL favorites this season. Elsewhere, a beleaguered Arizona squad should get quarterback Kyler Murray (hamstring) back on the field for its game against the Los Angeles Chargers, but the Cardinals are still 2.5-point underdogs in the Week 12 NFL spreads. Before you make any Week 12 NFL picks or NFL parlays, you need to see what SportsLine senior analyst Larry Hartstein has to say.

A former lead writer for Covers and The Linemakers, Hartstein combines a vast network of Vegas sources with an analytical approach he honed while working for Pro Football Focus. He entered the 2022 NFL season 427-344 all-time on NFL side picks (plus $3,764 for $100 players), including 394-330 against the spread. Hartstein went 68-50 ATS and 8-3 on money-line plays last season for a profit of $1,552.

Hartstein also is 20-13 on his best bets this season, including 14-7 the past seven weeks. Last week, he went a perfect 3-0. Anyone who has consistently followed him is way up.

Hartstein has locked in his confident picks for three Week 12 games, and he has a parlay that would pay almost 6-1. You can only see his picks at SportsLine.

Top Week 12 NFL parlay picks

After closely studying every game on the Week 12 NFL schedule, Hartstein loves the Dolphins to cover against the Texans. The Texans have the worst run defenses, and the Dolphins' ground game has dramatically improved since the start of the season. Miami's run offense only got stronger with the addition of Jeff Wilson at the trade deadline, and the former 49ers back had 119 yards with a touchdown in the Dolphins' last game against Cleveland in Week 10.

Houston first-round cornerback, Derek Stingley Jr., will miss the game with a hamstring injury, further reducing the minimal amount of resistance the Texans stood to pose against one of the NFL's most explosive offenses. Making matters more complicated for Houston is head coach Lovie Smith's decision to bench quarterback Davis Mills in favor of journeyman Kyle Allen.

"Miami comes off its bye with Tua Tagovailoa leading the NFL in passer rating (118.4)," Hartstein told SportsLine. "Houston averages 15.9 points per game. I'll bank on Miami getting into the 30s with head coach Mike McDaniel staying aggressive." You can see the rest of Hartstein's Week 12 NFL parlay picks here.

How to make Week 12 NFL parlays 

Hartstein also has locked in two other spread picks, including a play on a team that "looks primed for a late-season run." You absolutely need to see these picks before locking in any 2022 Week 12 picks or NFL parlays of your own.
