NFL Week 12, 2019: Best picks against the spread (ATS) The NFL has been streaky this season, so finding the hot lines can be a challenge. Our track record is solid and these are your best picks against the spread for NFL Week 12. The Miami Dolphins were on a roll. They had covered in five straight games, even winning the last two outright. The defacto worst team in the league for much of the season was running as hot as can be (in this regard). The only stretch longer all season by any team was when New Orleans covered six straight contests from September through the end of October.
