How absurdly good have the New England Patriots been since 2001? On Sunday, they beat Dallas 13-9 and improved to 10-1 on the season. The Patriots have won at least 10 games in 17 consecutive seasons dating back to 2003 and surpassed the San Francisco 49ers (16 seasons from 1983-98) for the most consecutive seasons with at least 10 victories in NFL history. Here’s a look at every NFL Week 13 game with an ATS pick and NFL odds.
2019 NFL Week 13 Odds, Overview & Predictions for Each Game
Chicago at Detroit (+2.5)
The Lions always host the first game on the Thanksgiving holiday and it’s the second straight year they host the NFC North rival Bears on the holiday. Chicago won thanks to a late defensive touchdown from Eddie Jackson in 2018 and also beat the Lions 20-13 in Chicago in Week 10 this year. The Lions didn’t have QB Matthew Stafford then and won’t here. NFL Week 13 Pick: Lions.
Buffalo at Dallas (-7)
A 4:30 p.m. ET start on Thanksgiving. The Bills haven’t played on the holiday since 1994. They would be an AFC Wild-Card team as thing stand, while Dallas leads the NFC East but owner Jerry Jones is not happy following Sunday’s loss at the Patriots. Pick: Cowboys.
New Orleans at Atlanta (+7)
The prime-time game on Thanksgiving – the teams played on the holiday last year too and the Saints won at home. New Orleans was stunned in the Big Easy by Atlanta a few weeks ago 26-9 when the Falcons were 14-point underdogs. That remains the biggest upset of the season. Pick: Falcons.
Green Bay at NY Giants (+6)
New York appears to have quit on coach Pat Shurmur, who is a lock to be fired after the season, as the Giants have lost seven in a row. Green Bay, meanwhile, fell into a first-place tie in the NFC North after being blown out Sunday night at San Francisco. NFL Week 13 Pick: Packers.
Washington at Carolina (-10)
Carolina would be eliminated from contention for the NFC South title if the Saints win in Atlanta on Thursday night and the Panthers are upset here. Not likely to happen against the two-win Redskins, although Washington did knock off Detroit on Sunday. Pick: Redskins.
San Francisco at Baltimore (-4.5)
Possible Super Bowl preview. The Ravens are on a short week after visiting the Rams on Monday night. The Niners crushed the Packers on Sunday in a very impressive effort. The Niners control their destiny in terms of being the NFC’s top seed. Pick: Ravens.
Tennessee at Indianapolis (-2.5)
Important AFC South game. Indy goes for the season sweep as it was a 19-17 winner in Nashville in Week 2. Jacoby Brissett threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to T.Y. Hilton with 4:38 left to lead the Colts to the win. Marcus Mariota was sacked four times but he’s no longer the Titans’ starting QB. NFL Week 13 Pick: Colts.
Philadelphia at Miami (+9)
This is a game the Eagles can’t afford to lose or they can all but kiss their playoff hopes goodbye. Philly QB Carson Wentz is day-to-day with a bruised right hand. It’s only a minor setback and shouldn’t keep Wentz from suiting up against Miami in Week 13. Wentz struggled mightily in Sunday’s loss to Seattle, submitting two interceptions while averaging a lackluster 5.7 yards per attempt. Pick: Dolphins.
Tampa Bay at Jacksonville (-1)
Nothing to play for other than in-state bragging rights between these two. The Jaguars clearly made a mistake switching back to Nick Foles at quarterback and benching promising rookie Gardner Minshew. Jameis Winston completed 18-of-26 passes for 313 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Bucs’ Week 12 win over the Falcons. Pick: Jaguars.
NY Jets at Cincinnati (+4)
The Bengals remain the NFL’s only winless team and this might be their best chance to avoid 0-16. Cincinnati will go back to veteran Andy Dalton as the starting quarterback. Coach Zac Taylor is benching rookie Ryan Finley. Pick: Bengals.
Cleveland at Pittsburgh (+2)
Of course, these teams got into a brawl when they played a few weeks ago, which Cleveland won. Two of the main participants in that, the Browns’ Myles Garrett and Steelers’ Maurkice Pouncey, both are out suspended still from that game. NFL Week 13 Pick: Steelers.
LA Rams at Arizona (+4)
Short week for the Rams after they hosted Baltimore on Monday. It’s their first look at Cardinals rookie quarterback Kyler Murray.
The Cardinals come out of their bye week on a four-game losing streak. Pick: Rams.
Oakland at Kansas City (-10)
Chiefs go for the season sweep and can all but wrap up the AFC West with a victory. In Week 2, the Chiefs beat the Raiders 28-10 – Oakland scores its 10 points in the first quarter and Kansas City all 28 in the second on four Patrick Mahomes TD passes. Pick: Chiefs.
LA Chargers at Denver (+2.5)
Disappointing Chargers come out of their bye week. The Broncos are playing out the string but go for the season sweep. They upset the Chargers 20-13 in Los Angeles in Week 5. Phillip Lindsay rushed for 114 yards on 15 carries as Denver raced to a 17-0 lead in the second quarter and held on. NFL Week 13 Pick: Chargers.
New England at Houston (+3)
The Sunday night game and a potential playoff preview. The Patriots need to keep winning to stay ahead of Baltimore for potential home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. If the Pats and Ravens tie, Baltimore owns the tiebreaker. Pick: Texans.
Minnesota at Seattle (-3)
Monday night game and could be an NFC playoff preview. Minnesota has a slight advantage in coming out of a bye week, but the Vikings rarely win in Seattle and the Seahawks rarely lose prime-time home games in the Russell Wilson era. NFL Week 13 Pick: Seahawks.
