NFL Football Picks
Week Thirteen Monday Night Football will be one of the best MNF contests we’ve seen in quite some time as two teams viewed as Super Bowl LIV contenders meet up to do battle with a point spread of 3. The Minnesota Vikings have performed well as underdogs under head coach Mike Zimmer at 23-14. While this game looks to be competitive on paper, one team has a ton of betting value.
If you think the NYG line of +6 is fishy, you’re onto something! The Pack can’t stop the run so the NYG should be able to keep it close. The Giants secondary is like a wet paper bag, so expect Aaron Rodgers to have a solid passing day as well, assuming the weather is decent. Check out Ted’s take on this Week 13 head scratcher before placing your bet!
The L.A. Rams on a short week after getting destroyed by the Ravens are toxic. I’ve been a big believer in the Rams all season they’ve been a constant letdown. Fool me no more! The Cardinals come into this game at +3 and are a LIVE barking dog!
This is one of those games you look at and envision Patrick Mahomes throwing bombs down the field vs. a bad Raiders secondary. Especially after the showing Oakland had vs. the Jets last week. Truth be told, KC isn’t playing that great of football right now, leaving the door open for a potential double digit barking dog Sunday. The Raiders strength is ground and pound with Josh Jacobs. KC’s weakness is run D. Check out who Loot is betting on in this Week 13 barnburner before placing your bet!
Philip Rivers has deteriorated in front of our eyes. Is it me, or is his arm angle dropping even more than previous seasons? His passes are falling short and you can see him melting down as the camera pans in on him after his mistakes. This guy is washed up. Denver is licking their chops to attack this “Sidearm Kitna”. I’m bringing a wheelbarrow with me to the betting window this week!
Week 13 NFL blesses us with a potential preview of what Super Bowl LIV may look like as the 10-1 San Francisco 49ers travel to Baltimore to take on the Ravens as +6 underdogs. Can anyone stop Lamar Jackson? Keith has your answer!
“He who runs the ball and plays good defense wins games.” This should be the mantra of the Tennessee Titans, who are gaining SERIOUS momentum and becoming a serious contender behind head coach Mike Vrabel, who is a winner. Bet the Titans this week and consider putting down a lunch money bet on the Titans to win the Super Bowl at 100-1. THIS COULD HAPPEN.
This Week 13 point spread is a real head scratcher. The oddsmakers are way off on the Pats/Texans line and it’s as close to a lock as any game we’ve seen this season. The Texans love to chuck it and the Patriots have one of the most ridiculously talented secondaries we’e seen since Ed Reed and the Baltimore Ravens. The Texans run game is ineffective as well. Jump on this one quick before we see line movement that sucks out the value!
The Bungles almost did it last week! In the end, they fell short in a game they probably should of win. As the season goes on, Cinci is getting healthier and gaining chemistry. They also gain motivation by not wanting to become “that team” that went ofer the season. Don’t be surprised if they beat the Jets this week, leaving most scratching their heads.
I hate laying double digit favorites in the NFL. It’s a losing proposition (long term). In this case, we have Christian McCaffrey, who may go for 200 combined rushing/receiving yards. The Skins have absolutely no answers for Carolina’s style of play and their Haskins can’t hit the broad side of a barn right now. He holds the ball too long and lacks the experience necessary to win, much less play well on the road. This game is also a great option to teaser down to -3.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Jacksonville Jaguars is undoubtedly the sucker bet of the week. Tampa Bay goes into Atlanta and destroys the Falcons and now they’re a +1 underdog to the Jacksonville Jaguars? Don’t find yourself on the wrong side of this nasty spread!
Round II of the Browns/Steelers bout takes place Sunday, which will garner much more interest from fans than normal, with hopes of yet more chaos, punches and helmet conking. While it’s unlikely anything exciting happens between large men, there should be some action between us and the bookies. Mason Rudolph being benched mid-game last week was a good thing, however, it creates chemistry issues as Devlin Hodges won’t be as in tune with his rececivers, or will he, as most of these guys were part of the second unit early in the season and that’s who he’s mostly practiced with!
We all know that the Dolphins have been a trainwreck this season. However, they have been playing much better as of late. The Eagles have issues as well. Enough problems where this Week 13 spread of +9 has some nice wagering value. Furthermore, I always like fading teams that go from playing in 40 degree weather to 82 degree weather. It’s taxing on a player’s body and can create all kinds of nasty issues that we can use to our advantage. The Phins are one of my best bets and are a live barking dog. It wouldn’t surprise me to see Miami win straight up here.
The Falcons were playing great football before getting destroyed at home vs. Tampa Bay. Their secondary got absolutely smoked by Chris Godwin. One would think Drew Brees and company would come in and serve them up another ass-whoopin, but Brees hasn’t been throwing down field as much in his old and age the Saints barely got by a struggling Saints team. The Falcons might be Week 13’s underdog of the week!
The second game of Thursday’s NFL Thanksgiving card features a Bills team that has leaky run defense vs. the Cowboys who will surely be unleashing Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard at a higher rate than normal. It’s unlikely the Pokes will have to deal with any “stuffing” Thursday!
Christmas comes early for us degenerate gamblers Thanksgiving Day as festivities kick of with the Bears vs. Lions at Ford Field. Many thought the loss of Matthew Stafford would make Detroit non-competitive, however, Jeff Driskel is no Turkey! (get it?) The Lions got beat last week on the road vs. a hungry Skins team and the Bears “Bearly” got by the NYG at home last week. Don’t let those results skew your opinion of this week’s game as there’s only one way to bet this game!
