An AFC West rivalry will renew when the Las Vegas Raiders host the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. The Raiders have won two of their three games since firing head coach Josh McDaniels. The Chiefs, meanwhile, enter Sunday's showdown fresh off a defeat against the Philadelphia Eagles. According to the latest Week 12 NFL odds, the Chiefs are nine-point favorites on the road. Should your Week 12 NFL picks include backing Kansas City to cover the spread or should you target another divisional matchup like Jaguars vs. Texans (+1) or Rams vs. Cardinals (+1)? Before you make any Week 12 NFL picks or NFL parlays, be sure to see the NFL predictions and betting advice from SportsLine's proven computer model.

The model enters Week 12 of the 2023 NFL season on an incredible 175-126 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.

Top Week 12 NFL picks
After simulating every game 10,000 times, the model is high on the Pittsburgh Steelers (-2) to cover on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Steelers have lost four of their last five games against the Bengals, but Cincinnati will be without star quarterback Joe Burrow on Sunday. Burrow suffered a season-ending wrist injury, so the Bengals will turn to Jake Browning at quarterback.
Browning will make his first NFL start against a dynamic Pittsburgh defense that has been stifling its opponents in recent weeks. In fact, the Steelers have given up 20 points or less in each of their last six games. In addition, the Bengals are just 4-16 in their last 20 games at home against Pittsburgh, a big reason why the model is projecting the Steelers to cover the spread in nearly 60% of simulations.
