NFL point spread: Saints vs. Panthers, Titans vs. Bengals

The Week 12 NFL point spread and preview of the games New Orleans Saints vs. Carolina Panthers and Tennessee Titans vs. Cincinnati Bengals.

NFL point spread: Saints vs. Panthers, Titans vs. Bengals We will start this edition of the NFL Week 12 point spread and odds preview with the New Orleans Saints (4-6) and their visit to the Carolina Panthers (4-6). When these two football teams met last month the Panthers won the match-up 16-13. But now Carolina is on their 4-game losing streak and the bookies are siding with the Saints on this one. At the online betting firm Bodog Sports the point spread on the New Orleans Saints vs. Carolina Panthers game is currently sitting at -3 points chalk the Saints. With the Panthers and the Saints 4-6 records, the teams are sharing the middle of the NFC South and each has a shot at the division title, top spot currently occupied by the Buccaneers at 6-4. Panthers running back DeShaun Foster and defensive tackle Damione Lewis have been upgraded to probable this weekend, but Saints star running back Reggie Bush is still questionable for the game against Carolina due to shin injury. Keep in mind that New Orleans is 3-10 against the spread in its last 13 games and Carolina is 1-4 against the spread in its last 5 games.

 Also on Sunday the Tennessee Titans (6-4) will visit the Cincinnati Bengals (3-7) for a shot at the playoffs after losing their last two games. Not much improvement in the Cincinnati team and the Bengals gave away the home game last week against the Cardinals. Bodog Sports is expecting a repeat and the point spread on the Tennessee Titans vs. Cincinnati Bengals is favoring Tennessee -1.5 points. Questionable for the Titans remain wide receiver Ahmard Hall, defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth and defensive end Travis LaBoy. Cincinnati are doing a little better, upgraded to probable were wide receivers Glenn Holt and T.J. Houshmandzadeh, linebackers Rashad Jeanty and Landon Johnson, as well as safeties Herana-Daze Jones and Marvin White. Keep in mind that Tennessee is 2-5 against the spread in its last 7 games and Cincinnati is 2-6-1 against the spread in its last 9 games.
