NFL Picks Week 13

NFL Week 13 kicks off with a bang when Washington visits Dallas on Thursday Night Football. Jerry Jones is hoping his Cowboys can win without Zeke and LB Sean Lee. Most experts aren’t sure. And if you are looking for more sure NFL Week 13 picks, I have a trio of Sunday winners to get your holidays off to a jolly start.

NFL Picks Week 13

My NFL Week 13 picks begin with a team that has been on fire both straight up and against the spread. Can New England again cover versus the Buffalo Bills in New York?

I also like the Saints to bounce back after a crushing loss the Rams. Why is New Orleans my NFL Week 13 pick versus the Carolina Panthers on Sunday?

My final pick for NFL Week 13 betting action is between Indianapolis and Jacksonville.

Keep reading to find out who you should bet on this weekend.

New England at Buffalo
When:  Sunday, Dec. 3 at 1:00 pm ET
Where: New Era Field, Buffalo, NY
Stream: CBS Sports
Odds: New England -8.5

Analysis: New England is, easily, the best team in the NFL. Okay. Philadelphia isn’t bad. But, the Patriots’ defense has finally put it all together. That makes New England a better team than Philly.

New England is 7 and 0 straight up in their last 7 games. The Patriots have gone 7 and 1 against the spread in their last 7 games. New England hasn’t allowed a team to score more than 17 points against them in those last 7 wins.

Buffalo played well to barely beat a reeling Kansas City Chiefs’ team in Week 12. The Bills have no shot versus the Pats. New England is my top NFL Week 13 pick as Brady and Co will win and cover the 8.5-point spread.

NFL Week 13 Pick: New England

Carolina at New Orleans
When:  Sunday, Dec. 3 at 4:25 pm ET
Where: Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans, LA
Stream: Fox Sports Go
Odds: New Orleans -3.5

Analysis: As crazy as it sounds, New Orleans’ straight up 20 to 26 loss to the L.A. Rams in Week 12 falls on the shoulders of Saints’ coach Sean Payton and QB Drew Brees. Brees was off all day while Payton called some suspect plays during the game.

The Saints’ D gave up a ton of passing yards to Rams’ QB Jared Goff. But, the Rams only scored 26 points. The Rams average 29.3 points per.

I expect Brees and Payton to bounce back with great games this Sunday versus a Carolina squad that New Orleans punished 34 to 13 on Sep. 24. Don’t be surprised if a similar score occurs this Sunday. This is especially true if New Orleans’ 2 starting cornerbacks, Marshon Lattimore and Ken Crawley, play.

This game has big playoff implications and I am picking the Saints to win this tilt by a hair.

NFL Week 13 Pick: Carolina +3.5

Indianapolis at Jacksonville
When:  Sunday, Dec. 3 at 1:00 pm ET
Where: EverBank Field, Jacksonville, FL
Stream: CBS Sports
Odds: Jacksonville -8.5

Analysis: Jacksonville’s defense was underwhelming in the Jaguars’ 24 to 27 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 12. The loss was versus an NFC team, though.

Jacksonville faces an AFC South opponent in Week 13. It’s difficult to see the Jaguars not going back to their shut down defensive ways versus a Colts’ squad that averages 95.3 rushing yards and less than 18 points per game.

The Jaguars dominated Indy 27 to 0 on Oct. 22. Jacksonville will dominate again making the Jags my final Week 13 NFL pick.

NFL Week 13 Pick: Jacksonville
