NFL Week 13 is here. 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 Tallysight as of Tuesday morning)
Last Week: 10-6
Thursday Night Football
Seattle Seahawks at Dallas Cowboys (-9)
The Cowboys are on a roll right now. They have enough in them to win the game, but the Seahawks are a tough team who are capable of keeping things within a touchdown.
Los Angeles Chargers (-6) at New England Patriots
New England has been benching Mac Jones. They don’t have any answers on offense, which keeps their defense on the field too long. The Chargers are desperate for a win to get back in the playoff mix and they should be focused enough to win and cover.
Indianapolis Colts (-2) at Tennessee Titans
Both teams have different starting quarterbacks from the start of the season and are built on establishing the run. The game is a coin flip, so taking the Titans with the points at home is the smarter choice.
Miami Dolphins (-9) at Washington Commanders
Miami has extra time to heal up for this game after playing on black Friday. Their defense is coming along and their defense is still high-powered. They can cover against the Commanders, who have lost three straight.
Detroit Lions (-4) at New Orleans Saints
The Saints have lost six of their last nine games and have struggled to get the offense going. Detroit can protect Jared Goff and then win and cover on the road.
Arizona Cardinals at Pittsburgh Steelers (-5.5)
Pittsburgh finally eclipsed the 400-yard mark in a game against the Bengals after a change of offensive coordinators. The defense can limit the Cardinals and if the offense can take another step forward, they can win and cover.
Atlanta Falcons (-2.5) at New York Jets
The Jets are a mess right now and can generate any offense. Atlanta is in first place in the NFC South and will be motivated to notch this win and make sure things stay that way.
Denver Broncos at Houston Texans (-3.5)
Denver has won five straight games. It will be tough to go on the road and beat the Texans, but they should be able to keep the game within a field goal at the very least.
Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-5.5)
Carolina fired Frank Reich, but they also rid themselves of a lot of assistants. It will be hard to get the gameplan ready and organized. Tampa Bay can win and cover at home.
San Francisco 49ers (-2.5) at Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia is winning games. They just don’t look great. San Francisco looks geat after their bye and had extra time to prep for this game. They’ll also want revenge for losing to the Eagles in the NFC Championship Game.
Cleveland Browns at Los Angeles Rams (-4)
Cleveland has not looked great with Dorian Thompson-Robinson and now he is injured. If he can’t play, P.J. Walker or Joe Flacco will step in. The Browns’ offense will not have enough firepower to keep up with the Rams.
Sunday Night Football
Kansas City Chiefs (-6.5) at Green Bay Packers
While Green Bay has been playing better, the Chiefs seemed to get things back on track against the Raiders after a slow start. The Chiefs can win and cover on the road.
Monday Night Football
Cincinnati Bengals at Jacksonville Jaguars (-8.5)
The Bengals are lost without Joe Burrow. They can’t run the ball and the defense is on the field too long. Jacksonville can take advantage and win by at least two scores.
