When you're looking for advice on who to pick on game day in the NFL, nobody beats R.J. White. In fact, if you placed $100 on each of R.J. White's NFL picks last season, you would have won nearly $2,000. Smart bettors tail his selections. 

The CBS Sports NFL editor cashed big last season in the world's most prestigious handicapping tournament, the Westgate Las Vegas SuperContest, tying for 18th out of 2,748 contestants with a 52-29-4 mark against the spread. It wasn't a fluke, either, as he also cashed big-time in the 2015 SuperContest. White went 4-1 last week and has now locked in his favorite SuperContest plays for Week 12. 

Using the Las Vegas SuperContest lines for Week 12, we can tell you White loves the Vikings (-3.5) at home against the Packers. 

"The Vikings have been the better team this year, and they're certainly the healthier team after Jimmy Graham and Mike Daniels joined the walking wounded of key Packers players last week," White said. "The Vikings also have a top-tier home-field advantage, which I have at four points. So I think this line needs to be closer to Vikings -6, making this incredible value for us. Yes, Kirk Cousins struggles in primetime, and Aaron Rodgers is unquestionably a better QB. But the Vikings have an elite, well-rounded defense that can carry them to the win in this matchup at home."

White also is calling for a home favorite to get absolutely shocked on Sunday. And who it is will surprise you. Anyone who backs this team could hit it BIG.

So who is R.J. White backing in Week 12? And which underdog is going to shock the world?... Join SportsLine right now to see who you should back in Week 12, all from the expert who keeps crushing the world's most prestigious handicapping tournament!
