Heading into week 12 in this top Las Vegas contest we will take a look at the top four consensus plays. For the first time this season the consensus pick has less then 100 contestants on the top choice.
The top spot has a tie this week, with 98 contestants picking both the Baltimore Ravens and Carolina Panthers as their best selections.
The Baltimore Ravens are a 2 1/2-point home 'chalk' over the Seattle Seahawks, who have a weary road record. The Ravens are off two tough losses after their defense has kept them in those games.
The Carolina Panthers head to Big D as three-point road underdogs to take on the Cowboys. Contestants picked one of the biggest games of the week, as both teams come in at first place in their respective divisions.
The second choice has the offenseless home underdog Buffalo Bills plus 4 1/2 over the high-powered Indianapolis Colts. We had 79 player on the home 'dog.
The Tennessee Titans are this contest's next selection with 65 bettors on one of the best teams in the AFC versus one of the worst teams in the NFC the Atlanta Falcons. The Titans are a seven-point road 'chalk' this week.
