Week 13 NFL Picks: Wednesday Odds & Line Movement Update
By: Jordan Sharp
Chicago Bears continue to open up as -3 ½ and -4 home favorites against he
Seahawks. This is a tough game to handicap, but I’m still surprised it hasn’t
moved more. Obviously Matt Forte for the Bears is banged up with an ankle
injury. His status is still up in the air, and although the injury doesn’t
appear to be serious, it looks as if the Bears might sit Forte this week.
Seattle on the other hand still could be without their top two corners, but we
have yet to hear new word from the commissioner on the appeals hearing. Right
now, I like the Bears, but later in the week, this line is going to shift a lot
one way or another.
NFL Picks: Seahawks vs. Bears
public seems to love the Colts taking points in Detroit this week, but the line
has gone nowhere as of now. In fact, as few books have it as high as -5 Lions,
making that a half point higher than where it opened. It seems like the Colts
should be closer to +3 ½, but with this kind of line, I would lay off until
later in the week.
opening at +6, the Jaguars are starting to shrink down a bit against the Bills.
However, the weather this time of season in Buffalo is mightily rough, and if
it snows, (or rains which looks likely now) the Jags could have trouble
throwing the ball with Chad Henne. I actually think that if the line shrinks
much lower, the Bills might have excellent value.
Houston looks like they are settling to only a -6 favorite against the Titans
this week on the road. The Texan defense is struggling right now, and the Titans’
offense is going to start working well under Jake Locker any week now. This
line scares me, and I think it’s pretty dead to me right now pending further
movement later in the week.
Week 13 NFL Picks: Tuesday Odds & Line Movement Update
By: Jordan Sharp
opening at only -1, the Panthers’ line is now trending up after their MNF win
over the Eagles. Cam Newton has his best game of the season, and now this week
against the Chiefs, the Panthers are -2 ½ and -3 favorites. I mentioned that I
thought it would get this high if the Panthers won on Monday, and indeed it
did. However, if it moves too far upward, there is going to be money put on the
Chiefs coming back the other way. The Panthers are on high from a rare win, and
this could be a trap game considering the Panthers play the Falcons in Week 14.
head into Denver this week, and after opening at -6 ½, the Broncos have jumped
all the way up to -7 and -9 in some cases. This is a little surprising,
considering I thought yesterday that the Bucs would see the most action. What
baffles me and makes me want to run away is the fact that Tampa Bay has taken
almost 2/3 of the bets and even though the public is heavy on the Bucs, the
line has gone up. Unless you got in on the Broncos earlier, I would stay away
from this game.
Finally, Cincinnati and San Diego opened as a pick em, but has quickly
jumped to favor the road Bengals by -1 and -1 ½. This was due to the large
influx of money that came in on the Bengals, and although the Chargers look bad
right now, they should not be much more than a one or two point underdog in
this game. If the line gets bet up too much, I am almost certain you should see
some money coming in on the Chargers as road underdogs.
Week 13 NFL Picks: Opening Odds & Line Movement Predictions
By: Jordan Sharp
you all had an excellent holiday and Week 12 of the NFL, but if you didn’t,
don’t waste your time trying to decide if you think the Panthers or Eagles are
going to cover, just save that cash and put it towards Week 13 of the NFL.
NFL betting lines are out and ready for the taking for Week 13, and with just a few exceptions
here on Monday, you can get really goo early value in the NFL on all games.
There are no more byes, and these damn Thursday games are almost over. In fact,
this week’s actually could be a good game.
miracle that the Thursday night game is actually worth watching! The Falcons
host the New Orleans Saints in what will trump all other Thursday Night games
combined. The line opened at -3 ½ in favor of the Falcons at home, and I don’t
expect it to move too much from here. Although the public is heavy on the
Saints as expected, this line is right where this game should be. It would
favor the Saints by about the same amount if the game where in New Orleans.
Check out our early NFL picks for the Falcons vs. Saints.
is only a -3 ½ favorite at home against the Seahawks this week, and if you can
get this line right now, I suggest you pound the Bears. Seattle’s top two
cornerbacks Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner are facing 4 game suspensions
for PED usage, and even though they are appealing, this is going to have
massive effects on the Seattle defense. Their appeals could be heard this week,
and if they are upheld, I’m putting a huge play on the Bears. Even before, I
think we can agree that this number right now could be a bargain if the
suspensions are upheld. I’d take a shot at it right now as well.
49ers are only a -7 favorite on the road in St. Louis this week. After the Rams
dominated the Cardinals last week, and the 49ers took care of the Saints, it
looks as if this line is solid. The only thing I could say about it is I bet it
will settle at 7 ½ points in favor of the 49ers. That way the books will take
out the push possibility.
books are still waiting on the outcome of the Monday Night Football game before
they out the lines for the Eagles and Panthers’ games next week. However, in
the game between the Panthers and Chiefs, The Greek has the Panthers as -1 road
favorites, and they are the only book taking action on that line. I think the Panthers
will win tonight, which will likely make the line officially open a little
higher than just a point. However, I do think the Chiefs are still a solid
football team, and a team like the Panthers should not be more than a couple
point favorites against them on the road, no matter what happens tonight,
barring major injury of course.
Finally, we travel all the way to a week from tonight, where the Giants
go on the road to Washington to face off against the Redskins. Only two
sportsbooks have the line out currently. BetOnline has the Giants as -2 ½
favorites on the road, while The Greek has the spread as an even pick em. This
is surprising to have this much of a distance between two book’s lines, even
this early in the week. Watch this one closely, but if you have a play now, The
Greek is your place to go.
