Week 12 NFL Futures Report

Updated:

It’s that time of the week again and Sports Hub is here to provide you with an update on Week 12 NFL futures! Week 13 kicked off on Thursday night as the Dallas Cowboys defeated the Seattle Seahawks 41-35 at AT&T Stadium. However, the bulk of the games will, of course, get underway this Sunday. 

Many teams’ seasons will all come down to how they perform down the stretch. Plenty of playoff contenders in the past have struggled in the final few weeks of the season. We have certainly reached the business end of the regular season now and every win matters. 

Week 12 NFL futures will be incredibly important to analyze as we enter such a pivotal time of the regular season. Therefore, check out my Week 12 NFL Futures Report for everything you need to know!

Week 12 NFL Futures – Top Markets 

Since Week 1, I have been investigating how the odds have changed week-to-week for some of the most popular NFL futures markets. Check out the top-six markets that I have been examining thus far: 

  • Super Bowl Winner 
  • AFC Champion
  • NFC Champion
  • MVP 
  • Offensive Rookie of the Year
  • Defensive Rookie of the Year

Both Offensive and Defensive Rookie of the Year awards appear to be wrapped up. Certainly, C.J. Stroud’s price of -9000 indicates that he has already won the award. Jalen Carter is -250 to win DROY and it would be a surprise if he didn’t go on to win it. 

Since both of these markets have such heavy frontrunners, I will, instead, take a look at the Offensive and Defensive Player of the Year futures markets in my Week 12 NFL Futures Report. 

Super Bowl Winner

First up we start with the main NFL futures market by taking a look at the odds for the Super Bowl winner. Teams such as the Kansas City Chiefs, the San Francisco 49ers and the Philadelphia Eagles have been leading the market all season. Here’s a quick reminder of how the odds looked for the top-ten candidates after Week 11:

  • Kansas City Chiefs (+450)
  • San Francisco 49ers (+450)
  • Philadelphia Eagles (+450)
  • Baltimore Ravens (+850)
  • Dallas Cowboys (+900)
  • Miami Dolphins (+900)
  • Detroit Lions (+1400)
  • Jacksonville Jaguars (+1800)
  • Buffalo Bills (+2600)
  • Cleveland Browns (+4000)

The Chiefs’ offense looked back to its best against the Las Vegas Raiders during Week 12. Patrick Mahomes threw two touchdowns and zero interceptions, whilst Rashee Rice caught eight passes for 107 yards and a TD. Nevertheless, the Niners comfortably beat the Seattle Seahawks on Thanksgiving and are now market leaders. 

Below you can see the updated odds to win Super Bowl LVIII through Week 12:

  • San Francisco 49ers (+350)
  • Kansas City Chiefs (+425)
  • Philadelphia Eagles (+460)
  • Baltimore Ravens (+750)
  • Miami Dolphins (+800)
  • Dallas Cowboys (+900)
  • Detroit Lions (+1400)
  • Jacksonville Jaguars (+1600)
  • Buffalo Bills (+4000)
  • Houston Texans (+6000)

The only reason that the Houston Texans have been able to sneak into the top-ten is because of Stroud. The rookie QB is even in the MVP race and his stellar season means that Houston has a chance at reaching the playoffs. However, they did narrowly lose 24-21 to AFC South rivals the Jacksonville Jaguars last weekend. Could the Texans have a shot at reaching the Super Bowl? 

AFC Champions

Week 12 NFL futures will now focus on the AFC. Of course, the Chiefs lead the market and they currently sit at 8-3. Here are the odds for the top-five contenders after Week 11:

  • Kansas City Chiefs (+200)
  • Baltimore Ravens (+360)
  • Miami Dolphins (+400)
  • Jacksonville Jaguars (+800)
  • Buffalo Bills (+1200)

The Baltimore Ravens currently lead the AFC with a record of 9-3. That means the Chiefs still have an extra game to play. The Ravens also have an extremely tough schedule down the stretch which is affecting their odds. Nonetheless, they picked up their ninth win of the season on Sunday Night Football with a 20-10 triumph over the Los Angeles Chargers. 

How have the odds for the AFC champion changed after Week 12? Here’s an update: 

  • Kansas City Chiefs (+185)
  • Baltimore Ravens (+350)
  • Miami Dolphins (+350)
  • Jacksonville Jaguars (+700)
  • Cleveland Browns (+2400)

The Miami Dolphins are still in the hunt to win the AFC. They have the same record as the Chiefs and Jags (8-3) and comfortably beat the New York Jets 34-13 on Black Friday. However, they are still yet to beat a team with a winning record in 2023. 

NFC Champions 

It’s time to head on over to the NFC champion odds now. Let’s quickly recap how the odds looked for the top-five contenders after Week 11: 

  • Philadelphia Eagles (+190)
  • San Francisco 49ers (+200)
  • Dallas Cowboys (+450)
  • Detroit Lions (+600)
  • New Orleans Saints (+2500)

It looks as though it’s going to be a battle between the Eagles and the 49ers for the NFC. It would be a rematch of last year’s NFC Championship game and, clearly, they are the best two teams in the conference. 

Here you can find the updated prices for the top-five after Week 12: 

  • Philadelphia Eagles (+190)
  • San Francisco 49ers (+190)
  • Dallas Cowboys (+400)
  • Detroit Lions (+700)
  • Seattle Seahawks (+3400)

The Cowboys’ offense has been on fire in recent weeks and it is now back-to-back games where they have scored 40+ points. They have won four in a row, too, so have a chance at causing an upset. Their performances are having a big say in Week 12 NFL futures. 

MVP

Now that we have covered some of the main team futures, my Week 12 NFL Futures Report will analyze the latest odds for MVP. 

Below is a recap of the odds after Week 11: 

  • Jalen Hurts (+250) QB Philadelphia Eagles
  • Lamar Jackson (+375) QB Baltimore Ravens
  • Patrick Mahomes (+425) QB Kansas City Chiefs
  • Tua Tagovailoa (+550) QB Miami Dolphins
  • Dak Prescott (+700) QB Dallas Cowboys
  • Brock Purdy (+1500) QB San Francisco 49ers
  • C.J. Stroud (+1800) QB Houston Texans 
  • Christian McCaffrey (+2000) RB San Francisco 49ers
  • Josh Allen (+3300) QB Buffalo Bills
  • Jared Goff (+4000) QB Detroit Lions

After a fairly underwhelming display through the air for Jalen Hurts against the Chiefs, he responded during Week 12 with a fantastic performance against the Buffalo Bills. Hurts threw three touchdowns in the overtime 37-34 win and also rushed for another two scores. His display was crucial in securing the victory. 

You can find the latest odds after Week 12 here:

  • Jalen Hurts (+150) QB Philadelphia Eagles
  • Patrick Mahomes (+380) QB Kansas City Chiefs
  • Dak Prescott (+400) QB Dallas Cowboys
  • Lamar Jackson (+450) QB Baltimore Ravens
  • Tua Tagovailoa (+900) QB Miami Dolphins
  • Brock Purdy (+1300) QB San Francisco 49ers
  • C.J. Stroud (+2000) QB Houston Texans 
  • Christian McCaffrey (+2500) RB San Francisco 49ers
  • Trevor Lawrence (+3000) QB Jacksonville Jaguars
  • Josh Allen (+3500) QB Buffalo Bills

Dak Prescott has seen the biggest shift in price over the last few weeks. He was as long as +3300 to win MVP after Week 10. After two more weeks of football, his price has been cut as low as +400. Prescott has been superb across Dallas’ electric offensive displays and it is now three successive weeks since he last threw a pick. 

Offensive Player of the Year & Defensive Player of the Year

As previously stated, since the rookie awards seem to have been wrapped up already, I will take a quick look at how the odds are looking for OPOY AND DPOY. 

Here are the latest odds for both OPOY and DPOY for Week 12 NFL futures: 

OPOY

  • Tyreek Hill (-115) WR Miami Dolphins 
  • Christian McCaffrey (+110) RB San Francisco 49ers
  • Ceedee Lamb (+1400) WR Dallas Cowboys 
  • A.J. Brown (+2000) WR Philadelphia Eagles 
  • Jalen Hurts (+3000) QB Philadelphia Eagles 

Tyreek Hill has been incredibly explosive in a dangerous Miami offense in 2023. With already 1,324 receiving yards and ten touchdowns on the year, it comes as very little surprise that Cheetah is minus money to win OPOY. 

Niners running back Christian McCaffrey has been that good this season that he is even in the running for MVP. However, he is not the current favorite to win OPOY. CMC has been superb both on the ground and in the air and it is set to be a fascinating race between him and Hill for the award. 

DPOY

  • Myles Garrett (+160) DE Cleveland Browns 
  • Micah Parsons (+170) LB Dallas Cowboys 
  • T.J. Watt (+250) LB Pittsburgh Steelers 
  • DaRon Bland (+1400) CB Dallas Cowboys 
  • Maxx Crosby (+3500) DE Las Vegas Raiders

It looks set to be a three horse race for DPOY, with Myles Garrett, Micah Parsons and T.J. Watt leading the market. All three have racked up a plethora of sacks this season, with Watt leading the entire league with 13.5. Garrett is close behind on 13, whilst Parsons has 11 to his name thus far.
