NFL Week 13 Picks Against the Spread

NFL week 13 is here and football is entering the end of the season. Picking NFL games straight up is hard enough, but picking against the spread is even tougher. Here are the NFL week 13 picks against the spread. (Spreads are from ESPN as of Wednesday afternoon)

Last week: 5-9, Overall: 83-90-2

Thanksgiving

Chicago Bears (-3.5) at Detroit Lions 

Jeff Driskel will likely start in this game for the Lions even though he is banged up. The home-field advantage is nice for the Lions, but the Bears’ defense shouldn’t let Driskel do too much.

Pick: Bears

Buffalo Bills at Dallas Cowboys (-6.5)

The Cowboys may win this game, but that is a big spread for a team barely above .500. The Bills will make it a low-scoring game and should be able to keep pace with the Cowboys.

Pick: Bills

New Orleans Saints (-7) at Atlanta Falcons 

Last time these teams played, the Falcons picked up one of their three wins of the season. They have since come back down to earth. New Orleans will be ready for the Falcons and won’t let them get as much pressure as last time.

Pick: Saints

Sunday Afternoon

New York Jets (-3.5) at Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals have made the change back to Andy Dalton. That should help a little, but the Jets have won three straight. Sam Darnold should carve up the Bengals’ defense for an easy win.

Pick: Jets

Tennessee Titans at Indianapolis Colts (-2.5)

Ryan Tannehill is 4-1 as a starter for the Titans. They are moving the ball well and Derrick Henry is on a tear. Indianapolis has several injuries to try to overcome in this one.

Pick: Titans

Philadelphia Eagles (-9) at Miami Dolphins

Carson Wentz does not look good and is banged up. The Eagles are struggling. They will likely win the game against the Dolphins, but it won’t be by much.

Pick: Dolphins

Green Bay Packers (-6.5) at New York Giants

The Packers may have just lost big time to the 49ers, but are clearly the better team in this game. New York will pick up some yards on the ground, but Aaron Rodgers won’t let the Giants keep it close.

Pick: Packers

Cleveland Browns (-2) at Pittsburgh Steelers

The rematch of the “helmet game” from a few weeks ago is here. Pittsburgh is starting Devlin Hodges at quarterback, but that won’t make the offense great. Cleveland will be focused and will need to get back to .500 to really compete for a playoff spot.

Pick: Browns

Washington Redskins at Carolina Panthers (-10)

Washington got a win, but it was against the Lions, who were starting Driskel at quarterback. They will not win this game and the Panthers offense should be able to move the ball well.

Pick: Panthers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Jacksonville Jaguars (-1)

Nick Foles has not looked good for the Jaguars in his return. Tampa Bay has a great run defense, so if Jameis Winston doesn’t have a meltdown with turnovers, they should be able to win on the road.

Pick: Buccaneers

San Francisco 49ers at Baltimore Ravens (-6)

Baltimore is on fire right now with Lamar Jackson leading the MVP race. The 49ers’ defense will be able to slow the Ravens down and keep the game close at the very least. Controlling the clock will be the key to this game.

Pick: 49ers

Sunday Afternoon

Los Angeles Rams (-3) at Arizona Cardinals

The Rams have not been able to move the ball on offense. Luckily, they won’t have to a lot in this game. Aaron Donald and the defense should be able to keep the Cardinals from scoring too many points.

Pick: Rams

Los Angeles Chargers (-2.5) at Denver Broncos

Philip Rivers has not played well this season, but he is going up against a Broncos team that is banged up. They also don’t score a lot. The Chargers should be able to win on the road by a decent margin.

Pick: Chargers

Oakland Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs (-10)

The Raiders are a completely different team on the road than they are at home. They are 1-4 on the road this season. Kansas City will be ready to play for this one coming off of a bye.

Pick: Chiefs

Sunday Night

New England Patriots (-3) at Houston Texans 

New England’s offense has some real problems, but their defense is still playing at an elite level. They will pressure Deshaun Watson and make it tough for the Texans on offense. Tom Brady will start to get the offense back on track against a struggling secondary.

Pick: Patriots

Monday Night

Minnesota Vikings at Seattle Seahawks (-3)

Seattle can run the ball and has a quarterback to make defenses pay when they stack the box. Minnesota has played well this season, but going on the road to Seattle will be a tough test. The Seahawks will cover the spread.

Pick: Seahawks
