The Packers host the Texans in a meeting between 2015 playoff participants while the Seahawks host the Panthers in the most anticipated game of the week.
Now, let’s find out which teams to back.
Analyzing The 2016 NFL Week 13 Early Winning Predictions For Every Game
Thursday, December 1, 2016Dallas Cowboys at Minnesota Vikings (-4.5)
The Vikings are the better team in all three phases, but I think the 4.5-point betting line is a bit too high. Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys narrowly cover the spread.
Sunday, December 4, 2016Kansas City Chiefs at Falcons (PK)
I like the Chiefs to get the outright road win over the Falcons in this Week13 Inter-conference matchup mostly because they have the better defense.
Detroit Lions at New Orleans Saints (-2)
Matthew Stafford and the Lions get the outright road win and ATS cover over Drew Brees and the Saints in a high-scoring shootout!
Los Angeles Rams at New England Patriots (-9)
The Patriots get the double-digit home win against a Ram team that has a good defensive line and gifted running back, but not much more right now.
Broncos at Jacksonville Jaguars (+3.5)
The Broncos will face their share of struggles in 2016, but not in this contest against a Jacksonville team they’re superior to in every way!
Houston Texans at Green Bay Packers (-7)
The Packers get the home win, but I like the Houston Texans to keep it within a touchdown to cover the NFL betting odds.
Philadelphia Eagles at Cincinnati Bengals (-5)
The Bengals are the better team in all three phases and will ‘scare’ Philly’s Sam Bradford into at least a couple of turnovers.
Miami Dolphins at Baltimore Ravens (-3)
The Ravens are playing at home against a Miami Dolphins team they match up well with, making Baltimore my pick to get the SU win and narrow ATS cover over a Miami team that went 3-7 ATS as an underdog a year ago.
San Francisco 49ers at Chicago Bears (-5)
The Bears are the pick to get the home in, but I think the NFL betting line for this matchup is about two points too high for Chicago to cover. Chip Kelly’s explosive offense helps the Niners narrowly cover!
Buffalo Bills at Oakland Raiders (-1.5)
The Bills are the more mature team, but they’re also prone to underachieve at the worst possible time, making Derek Carr and the Raiders the pick in this Week 13 matchup.
New York Giants at Pittsburgh Steelers (-7.5)
The Steelers cold put up 40 points or more en route to the win and ATS cover in this one against New York’s pitiful defense.
Washington Redskins at Arizona Cardinals (-6.5)
The Cards are playing at home and have the edge in all three phases of the game, making them my pick to win and cash in!
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at San Diego Chargers (-2)
I suspect the mediocre Chargers are looking at this Week 13 matchup like it’s a must-win matchup, which it is if they want to have any chance at having a respectable season.
Carolina Panthers at Seattle Seahawks (-3)
I’ve got to believe the Seahawks are going to come out with an extra special effort in this possible NFC Championship game preview. I’m going with Russell Wilson and company to win and narrowly cover!
Monday, December 5, 2016Indianapolis Colts at New York Jets (-2)
The Jets are playing at home, but I’m expecting Andrew Luck to have a career year in 2016 as he bounces back from his first injury-filled campaign. The Colts cover by getting the outright road win!
