With just a handful of games remaining for each team in the 2017 NFL season, the time for slip-ups and poor performances has long since passed. The final push for playoff spots is on, and the vast majority of games in Week 12 have some sort of playoff importance. The Jacksonville Jaguars have a shot at winning the AFC South and can help their cause with a win over the Arizona Cardinals. The Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders are both in turmoil, and both teams need a win to save face. The Green Bay Packers are in danger of missing the playoffs, while the Pittsburgh Steelers are close to clinching the AFC North. Let’s take a closer look at these 3 games and get some NFL Betting Profit.

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Arizona Cardinals

Date/Time: November 26, 2017, 4:25 PM ET
Location: University of Phoenix Stadium
Odds: Jaguars -5.5

At this stage of the season, all a team can really ask for is to be in control of their own destiny, which is exactly where the Jaguars are right now. They are 7-3 on the season and have the lead in the South. That said, they have been awful against teams in the NFC West in recent years, going 2-8 SU and 0-10 ATS in their last 10 games against that division.

With back to back losses in their last two games, the Cardinals are seeing their season slip away. Injuries have been a major issue for this team, and an inability to run the football has not really helped their cause either. The Cardinals are just 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 games, and the UNDER has hit in 12 of their last 16. The Jaguars are a 5 ½ point favorite here, and the point total is set at 38. I think the Jaguars win and cover, and I think the total creeps just OVER.

Denver Broncos vs. Oakland Raiders

Date/Time: November 26, 2017, 4:25 PM ET
Location: Oakland Alameda Coliseum
Odds: Raiders -5

There are major troubles in Denver right now, with GM John Elway calling his team soft after their latest defeat. The Broncos have now lost 6 in a row to fall to 3-7, thanks in large part to a stunning lack of offense. Denver is managing just 18 PPG this season, which is simply not good enough. The good news is that the Broncos are 5-1 SU and ATS in their last 6 visits to Oakland.

The Oakland Raiders have fallen well short of expectations this season, but given the recent struggles of the Chiefs, they are still in the hunt for a division title, even with their current 4-6 record. Unfortunately, the Raiders have won just 2 of their last 8 games, during which they went a dismal 1-6-1 ATS. The Raiders are a 5-point favorite for this one, with the point total set at 43 ½. I like the Raiders to win and cover, and I also like the OVER.

Green Bay Packers vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Date/Time: November 26, 2017, 8:30 PM ET
Location: Heinz Field
Odds: Steelers -14

You have to feel some level of sympathy for the Packers, as they are now in their second straight season disrupted by injuries. The Packers have seen the wheels come off in a big way since losing Aaron Rodgers, picking up just 1 win in that time to fall to 5-5. They are 1-4 SU and ATS without their starting QB under center.

A lot of the talk around the NFL this season has been about the comparatively poor season that Big Ben is having with the Steelers. It seems odd to be focusing on that when the team is at 8-2 and in total control of the division. The Steelers are winners of 5 in a row, but perhaps more importantly, have won 7 of their last 8 at home. The Steelers are 14-point favorites for this one, with the point total set at 43. I like the Steelers to win and cover, and the point total to go just OVER.
