We rundown through the NFL betting menu for week 13 and serve up our choice NFL picks for each and every game on the NFL odds board.

Packers vs. Lions
Packers and Lions collide in a game that is trading on a 46-point total almost unanimously across the board. Surprisingly, the Packers are just 3-8 in O/U betting this season while the Lions are 6-5 in O/U betting this season. Conspicuously, the Packers offense has been struggling more so of late. They’ve put up just 19.6-points per game over the last five – a run of games that is underscored by a concerning 1-4 SU mark. The Lions, meanwhile, have found a second gear. Reeling off three straight wins, they are averaging 27 points per game – albeit that number is skewed by the 45-14 win over the Eagles on Thanksgiving Day.

Ravens vs. Dolphins
Ravens and Dolphins are both 4-7 SU on the season. They are also both 6-5 in O/U betting. Ravens are averaging 23.5 points per game scored and conceding 25.1 points per game. Dolphins are averaging 20.5-points scored and conceding 26.1-points per game. Clearly, both sides are struggling on both sides of the ball, which makes this a tough game to call. This game could go either way of what is a rather modest 43.5-point total.

Falcons vs. Bucs
Falcons boast a 2-8-1 OVER record on the season, the second lowest OVER record after the Minnesota Vikings. Since week 5, when they were 5-0 SU, they’ve visibly struggled on both sides of the ball. Most concerning, however, is Matt Ryan’s uncertain play. He looks like he’s regressed rather than taken a step forward under Dan Quinn. The Bucs, meanwhile, appear to be figuring things out with their rookie quarterback Jameis Winston, who’s all of a sudden a strong candidate for Rookie of the Year honours. Five touchdowns against the Eagles is no mean feat. They did succumb to a loss to the Colts last week, but it was their second straight road game and coming off the emotional high of the week before probably factored. The Bucs are 6-5 in O/U betting and averaging 22.5-points per game. Earlier in the season, the Bucs beat the Falcons 23-20 to come through as the 8-point road underdogs and cash on the UNDER 47.5.

Bengals vs. Browns
The Bengals should ride roughshod over the Browns in week 13 NFL betting, no ifs or buts about it. One wonders though whether the Browns will even bother getting up for this game. What seemed like a sure-win in Monday Night Football resting on the boot of their kicker all of a sudden came back for a kick-six. To look at the Browns stand on the side line in disbelief was to get a sense of just how deflating that was. Their season is done in no uncertain terms. Josh McCown is out for the season. They have problem child Johnny Manziel and his tantrums….uuuffff… it goes on and on. In any event, we’re going with the OVER on our NFL picks, with a view towards a blowout win by the Bengals.

Jets vs. Giants
If there’s one thing these New Yorkers have in common it’s their schizophrenic play from week to week. One never knows which team shows up on any given Sunday. One week they are offensive –minded. Another week they are offensively challenged. Will the real Jets and Giants please stand up? This makes betting on this game a right tossup. We could go either way on our NFL picks. Push comes to shove, we’re leaning towards the OVER ever so slightly.

Seahawks vs. Vikings
The Vikings boast the lowest OVER record of the entire field with a 1-9-1 mark. The Seahawks are coming off an impressive 39-30 win over the Steelers, in which Russell Wilson had 5 TD passes. That’s not the norm for the Seattle Seahawks and their offense. Most likely, this will be a defensive tussle in Minnesota as the Vikings try to establish themselves at the top of the NFC North and the Seahawks attempt to keep their bid for a playoff spot alive.

Texans vs. Bills
Vegas Odds makers don’t appear to be putting much stock in the Texans’ four-game winning streak, sending them into this game as the 3-point road underdogs or thereabouts. Where they do appear to be taking stock of the Texans is on the defensive side of the ball, rolling out a rather low 41.5-point total on this game. There are those that would it down to Rex Ryan and his defensive credentials as well. In any event, Tyrod Taylor and the Bills have shown promise on offense putting up an average of 25-points per game. This game could go against the odds makers we think.

Cardinals vs. Rams
The Cardinals boast the league’s best OVER record at 8-3 going into Week 13, underscored by an average of 32.3 points scored per game and conceding just 21-points per game. On the strength of those numbers, this game should crack the OVER 43-points currently trading on this game. Granted the Rams defense is good but not great. Earlier this season the Cardinals lost to the Rams 24-22.

Niners vs. Bears
The Niners and Bears collide in Week 13 NFL betting, all while the Bears are coming off a big win over the Packers on the road. It remains to be seen whether the Bears can carry the momentum into this clash, which by all accounts is winnable. This doesn’t mean the Niners will be pushovers per say. Just that the Bears have more to play for as they attempt an improbable comeback on the season to improve to 6-6 SU. Bears have a 4-7 OVER record while the Niners have a 5-6 OVER record.

Jaguars vs. Titans
Jaguars and Titans could serve up a thrilling clash on week 13’s NFL betting slate as two of the promising quarterbacks of the future duel it out. Titans are without a home win, desperate to get into the win column. They are 5-5-1 in O/U betting and averaging just 18.45 points scored. The Jaguars have just one road win in five trips. They are 7-4 in O/U betting however with an average 21.5-points scored per game. Given the inconsistency on offense, odds makers roll out a low 43.5-point total for this game. However, this game could go against the grain.

Broncos vs. Chargers
Brock Osweiler and Gary Kubiak are a match made in heaven, so it would seem as the pair masterminded one of the biggest upsets of the season. Toppling the Patriots from the ranks of the undefeated was no mean feat. It required a come-from-behind win by the Broncos at Mile High. Philip Rivers and the Chargers, meanwhile, snapped the negative trend with a win in Jacksonville in week 12 NFL betting, coming through as the road underdogs and cracking the 46-point total in a 3-25 win. Broncos’ defense is sure to give Philip Rivers a run for his money, which is probably why odds makers have a rather low 43-point total trading on this game. However, we think this could be a bit of an offensive shootout between Osweiler and Rivers.

Chiefs vs. Raiders
The Chiefs lost a heartbreaker on the road last season to the Raiders. In hindsight, it was the game that veritably undid their playoff bid last season. So it’s not without some irony that the Chiefs enter this game, riding a five-game winning streak and desperate to remain in playoff contention. As it is, they are 6-5 SU and second in the AFC West, a game ahead of the Raiders. Raiders are coming off a win in Tennessee, coming through as the road faves and cashing on the 44-point total. The Raiders have plenty offensive weapons and the Chiefs’ offense has perked up of late as well. Raiders are 3-1-1 in O/U betting at home.

Panthers vs. Saints
The highest total trading on the week is the 50.5-point total rolled out for this NFC South showdown at the Superdome. The Panthers are finally gaining the respect of bookies – hard not to when they are the only undefeated team left. Offensively, the Panthers are putting up the points in a hurry and defensively they are playing sound football. This is a hard team to score against, never mind beat. In the last three games, they’ve not allowed more than 16-points against all while scoring 27-points or more.  The Saints, meanwhile, are a mess on both sides of the ball. Last week, they managed just six points against Houston. Yikes.

Eagles vs. Patriots
The Patriots are coming off a loss to the Broncos and a little bit banged up for it. The Eagles are coming off a horrendous, embarrassing loss to the Lions on Thanksgiving Day. Something is going to have to give when these two sides collide in week 13 NFL betting. Not surprisingly, money is on the Patriots to bounce back in a big way. Totals are trading on a rather high 49-point total or thereabouts depending on your sportsbook of choice. There’s no doubt that the Patriots can put up the points. Question is whether the Eagles can keep up? So far, they’ve been awful on the offensive side of the ball. In the last three games, they’ve not cracked 20-points.

Colts vs. Steelers
The Colts and Steelers collide on Sunday Night Football betting, in a game that should prove highly-entertaining so long as Big Ben gets the start. Matt Hasselbeck has proven his worth as the Colts’ backup starter and he’ll be looking to make it 5-0 SU when he stares down the Steelers in Pittsburgh. The Steelers are 6-4-1 in O/U betting with a 3-2-1 OVER record at home. Last week, they were engaged in a shootout in Seattle.

Cowboys vs. Redskins
The Redskins take on the hobbled Cowboys in the nation’s capital where they’ve only lost one game this season and boast a 4-2 ATS record and a 2-4 O/U. Tony Romo is out for the season and the Cowboys chances are gone with him. It’s hard to imagine what to expect from this game now, not only because of the uncertain quarterback play but also not knowing what the mind-set of the Cowboys is going to be now that their season is effectively over.
