Week 13 Predictions

Denver Broncos vs. against the Oakland Raiders NFL Week 4Last week was a very good one for my predictions in terms of picking winners, with my highlight being predicting the score of the Dolphins/Patriots game. However, I’ve been in a bit of a skid against the spread, so hopefully I can bounce back. This is another strong slate of games with many having playoff and divisional implications, so here’s to another great weekend of football.

Last week: 13-3, Season: 111-65

Last week against the spread: 6-10, Season: 88-88

Game of the weak: Broncos vs Dolphins: Well that escalated quickly. After the Broncos and Dolphins started their seasons 3-1 and 4-2 respectively, they currently sit at 3-8 and 4-7. The good news is somebody will see their losing streak come to an end on Sunday afternoon. So where did it go wrong for these teams? While both have had inconsistent quarterback play throughout the year, both teams have had offensive line struggles and defenses that haven’t met high expectations. These are games which can be built on for next year and heck, in this current AFC neither is completely out of it with a few wins either. Broncos 20 Dolphins (+1.5) 23

Game of the week: Panthers vs Saints: It feels like with how stacked the NFC is, the same few teams have been in this spot repeatedly. The Saints now make their second straight appearance here as the winner of this contest takes the lead of the  NFC South. One of the key match-ups in this one will be the Saints’ dynamic backfield of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara against a Panther defense that is stout against the run. Casual fans are well aware of the elite play of Luke Kuechly at linebacker, but on the interior Kawann Short has been a dominant run defender for the past two or three seasons.

Last week, the Jets did have some opportunities to exploit the Panther secondary, so it wouldn’t be surprising if this game came down to a battle of Drew Brees and Cam Newton. As fans of the sport, we could be in for a treat with this one. Panthers 24 Saints (-4.5) 28

Lions 17 Ravens (-2.5) 20

Colts 16 Jaguars (-9.5) 24

Texans 20 Titans (-6.5) 24

Buccaneers 21 Packers (+1.5) 20

Vikings 26 Falcons (-3.5) 21

49ers 20 Bears (-3.5) 24

Patriots 31 Bills (+9.5) 17

Chiefs 21 Jets (+3.5) 24

Browns 16 Chargers (-13.5) 30

Giants 17 Raiders (-9.5) 24

Rams 27 Cardinals (+7.5) 17

Eagles 26 Seahawks (+6.5) 21

Steelers 24 Bengals (+5.5) 21
