Week 12 was big for the underdogs as sportsbooks crushed. The icing on the cake was the Eagles covering against Seattle with a last ditch effort throw and then a two-point conversion. We also saw the 49ers, Falcons, Titans, and Patriots have outright wins as underdogs. But the Chiefs, Browns, and Giants all failed to cover which the public were on heavily. Week 13 continues with an irregular schedule as there will be no Thursday Night game and we have a doubleheader on Monday with another game on Tuesday with the Cowboys and Ravens. This is all scheduled at the moment and we will see. Plenty of lines are still not out yet and will be added as they come in.

This will be the first week without Matt Patricia and maybe that gives a lift to the Lions, but what they really need is Kenny Golladay and D'Andre Swift is back. Chicago's defense is a major factor this week as the Lions offense has been dreadful. Chicago were 2.5 dogs in Week 1 against the Lions, where they pulled off an unreal comeback. Mitch Trusbisky will start again despite having a lengthy delay as a backup. Instead of trying to look at the spread in this one of two horrendous offenses, I will go with the under.


Miami are monster favorites this week and face the Bengals. Without Joe Burrow this team is a mess and they will face a good pass rush and strong secondary. Miami has been a good home team and I feel much more confident in Ryan Fitzpatrick covering such a spread in comparison to Tua, who is likely out the next few weeks. Cincinnati is a disaster on all fronts and this Dolphins team is strong enough to cover.


The loss of Will Fuller and Bradley Roby for the season will certainly be a big hit to the Texans. Indy gets the Texans twice over the next two weeks and I would jump on this spread. The Colts can attack a very weak Texans defense and Fuller leaves this receiving core very thin now. This is a great week to grab the Colts and I wouldn't be surprised to see this line move a bit more.


The Vikings are -9.5 favorites this week and after a loss to the Cowboys and a near loss to Carolina, I am not fond of banking on them to cover. While we know how bad Jacksonville is, this is still a team with some talented skill position players that can take advantage of an average Minnesota defense. I won't trust the Vikings to cover this large of a spread. I do like the over in this one if I am choosing between the two and there will be a lot of enticing player props to hit the over on one they come out.


As expected the Raiders are huge favorites on the road against the Jets. Las Vegas is coming off a game where they just simply failed to show up. This is certainly a bounce back spot where I would assume the Raiders come out and leave this game without a doubt. The news will be to watch Josh Jacob's status, but Booker is a solid backup. Las Vegas should be able to run the ball this week and just control this game from start to finish.


This is an intriguing game because Atlanta will now see Taysom Hill twice in the last three weeks. The Falcons did not show up in that first game but did show up against Las Vegas and crushed them. Atlanta is generally a strong team when it comes to covering the spread as a dog. But the Saints here I just trust way more being able to cover a three-point spread. New Orleans has not missed a beat without Drew Brees, winning the last seven games with him out.


Two 8-3 teams square off this week as the Titans open up as favorites against the Browns. Cleveland has struggled away from home more often than not and the Browns defense did not give me any confidence last week that they can slow down a red hot Derrick Henry who is entering the weird part of the calendar where he begins to crush. While the Browns get Myles Garrett back, Denzel Ward has had some leg issues. This opens the door for the Titans passing attack to also have a big week, especially AJ Brown. This is certainly a prove it game for Cleveland but I like the Titans this week.


Seattle are huge home favorites after causing some anger with the betting community. With Daniel Jones out, this spread seems to be pretty fair as Colt McCoy will take over this week for the Giants. New York's defense isn't as good as advertised with their overall numbers allowed because they are playing in a dreadful NFC East. Seattle and company should put up a strong score and the defense can get after this Giants offensive lne.


Both teams have been very inconsistent this season as they are in an NFC West division that is trending down as a whole. The Rams have been a team to dominate the Cardinals over the last few seasons, covering five of the last six games. Kyler Murray and Jared Goff have had an up and down season. I trust the Rams defense more than the Cardinals and that is what give them the edge this week.


This is a great spot to take the Bears before the line moves up any further. The Packers are a strong team in December and Aaron Rodgers has this offense miles ahead of where the Eagles are. The only mismatch is Miles Sanders against this Packers run defense but if Doug Pederson is going to rush him eight times, it won't matter. We also saw Darius Slay get his lunch money taken and now he has to face a familiar wideout, Davante Adams. Green Bay will smash this week.


I have a hard time looking at this one and leaning one way or the other. The Chargers have the far better defense with Cam Newton and company being one dimensional and struggling. But Anthony Lynn makes game-losing calls more times than not and the Patriots have a major edge in that department. This is also a defense that can throw some different things at Herbert to see if they can get him to struggle.


While the quarterbacks will be back for Denver this spread is just silly for a red-hot Chiefs team. They are 14-point favorites and face a Denver team that isn't bad, but nowhere near the talent of Kansas City. The Chiefs are dominant at home and Denver's defense isn't at the shape it was a few years ago to at least slow down this group. They have crushed the division still and have covered more often than not.


This is a fun game this week as the Bills overcame a fairly average game against the Chargers, and their pass rush finally showed up. They face a well-coached 49ers team that is still in the hunt. This is a dangerous game for the Bills, especially with Deebo Samuel and Raheem Mostert back in action. I believe this will be a close game but I like the Bills to come out on top in this one.
