Best bet for NFL Week 12
Our best NFL bet for this week takes place in New Orleans.
Buffalo Bills @ New Orleans Saints
NFL Betting Odds: Buffalo $1.42 (-6.0) / Saints $2.90 (+6.0)
The Buffalo Bills led by star QB Josh Allen head to the daunting Mercedes-Benz Superdome to face a volitile Saints team. There will be plenty of interest in this game given its Thanksgiving prime time slot.
It's hard what to make of this Saints team, currently led by back-up QB Trevor Siemian. Last week the Saints got blown out by the mediocre Philadelphia Eagles largely in part to Siemian's performance.
Even with the poor performance, Siemian still managed to throw for three touchdowns and a rushing score.
Furthermore, the week prior he nearly organised a 4th quarter comeback against the AFC leading Tennessee Titans to only lose on a failed 2 point conversion at the end of the regulation.
The Bills will be looking to right their own wrongs after being dusted last week by the inform Indianapolis Colts at home. Jonathan Taylor gave the bills defence a good beating, rushing for 185 yards and four touchdowns.

Free NFL Expert Pick: Bills to cover the -6.0 line @ 1.90
With the Saints currently running a strong ground game, the Bills will need to fix up their defensive line to stifle this plan of action.
If the bills can mitigate the run game of the Saints and force Trevor Siemian to throw often, this will give them the best chance of leaving New Orleans with a victory to get them back on track.
Look for Josh Allen to have a big bounce back game and lead the Bills offense to plenty of points.
