PICK’ EM and SURVIVOR: Week 13

Top 5 Pick ‘Em

Season Record: 33-24-3

Baltimore -2.5 (vs. Detroit) – The Ravens are sporting the best defense in the league through 12 weeks and welcome a hobbled Matthew Stafford and the Lions beat up offensive line. In half of their games, the Ravens have held opponents to under 10 points, including three shutouts.

Carolina +4 (@ New Orleans) – The Saints have been carried by their running game this season, but face the Panthers Top-5 ranked run defense. Marshon Lattimore and Ken Crawley may still be out for the Saints defense as well, which will allow Cam Newton to control the game.

Washington -1 (@ Dallas) – The Redskins have covered nine spreads in their last 10 trips to Dallas. While the Redskins have their fair share of players missing, the loss of Sean Lee and Ezekiel Elliot have been crippling for the Cowboys where they have been outscored 22-97 in the last three games.

Green Bay Even (vs. Tampa Bay) – It looks like Jameis Winston will be back under center which makes the Packers an even better pick this week. The Buccaneers have only covered two spreads out of their last 10 matchups and the only way to cover this one is with an outright win in Green Bay.

 Philadelphia -5.5 (@ Seattle) – The Eagles are an absolute juggernaut and have covered every spread since their current win streak began. The Seahawks already struggle to run the ball and the Eagles defense will be able to put even more pressure on Russell Wilson

 

Top Survivor Pick

Jacksonville (vs. Indianapolis) – Even Blake Bortles should be able to manage a game against the Colts. The Jaguars defense verse the Colts offense is a matchup you take every day.

 

Survivor Avoid

Oakland (vs. New York Giants) – There may not be a huge difference between Eli Manning and Geno Smith. The Raiders and their atrocious defense are the third most popular pick this week.
