NFL Rankings (Week 12)

November 29, 2012  |  Sports

Here is how the NFL pundits from ESPN, Yahoo, and CBS Sports did with their Week 12 predictions. Mike Freeman of CBS posted the best performance, getting 13 of the 16 games correct — including upsets such as the Dolphins and Jaguars — resulting in a $1.45 yield. As a reminder, the yield measures the average payout, using Vegas odds, had you placed $1 bets on each of the pundit’s selections.

Mike Silver (Yahoo) and Seth Wickersham (ESPN) are turning in excellent seasons once again, while Keyshawn Johnson and Eric Allen of ESPN continue to struggle.
