Looking for a last-minute NFL pick in Week 13? We got ya covered. Check out these plays in the Eagles-Bengals, Texans-Packers, and Broncos-Jaguars games on Sunday.

Philadelphia Eagles vs Cincinnati Bengals (-1.5)

The Bengals have played six teams owning a positive average margin of victory in 2016. They are 0-6 SU and ATS, losing by 10.2 points per game. Offensive production is scant in this spot. Cincy has failed to reach its projected team total in each, averaging 15.0 points per game. With star wide receiver A.J. Green ruled out with a hamstring injury, it’s hard to see much improvement from the unit in this one. Look for another low-scoring game. We'll lean the UNDER as well.

Houston Texans vs Green Bay Packers (-6.5)

Fact: the Texans have scored more than 2 touchdowns on offense once all season. Quarterback Brock Osweiler has been a colossal bust and seems to be regressing. Houston could only muster 13 points at home last week to a Chargers defense that yielded 23 points or more in all but one of their last 13 road games entering the contest.

Green Bay, meanwhile, is carrying some momentum following a 27-13 win as 4-point underdogs at the Eagles last Monday night. Aaron Rodgers and company have rattled off 24 points or more in each of their last six games. Expect them to runaway in this one.

Denver Broncos vs Jacksonville Jaguars (-3.5)

Denver’s rookie quarterback Paxton Lynch will be under center for his second career NFL start with Trevor Siemian out with an injured foot. The team made the announcement Friday, the line adjusting in the Jaguars’ favor since. Lynch played okay in his lone outing against Atlanta back in Week 5, tossing for 1 TD, 1 INT, and 223 yards on 13 of 35 passing. Jacksonville’s secondary is much tougher, though. Still, Denver is a defense-first team, and the personnel change will make minimal impact.

Every week NFL analysts seem to conjure up some excuse for the Jags’ poor play, claiming they’re highly dangerous and underrated. The fact of the matter is they're 2-9 overall, dropping games on average by a touchdown per contest. Both wins also came against teams (Colts, Bears) with a losing record. Overhyped? Yes. Overvalued? Probably still.

The Broncos have lost 4 of their last 7 games, but three have come against opponents with a winning percentage at 70 percent or greater. When squaring off against teams with a losing record, they are 3-1, claiming victory by 8 points or more in each win.

The vaunted Denver pass rush will star in this game. Expect it to harass Jacksonville quarterback Blake Bortles relentlessly. According to Pro Football Focus, Bortles has 8 interceptions when under pressure, most in the NFL this year. Look for the Broncos to win the turnover battle and the game for your NFL predictions.
