All four of my picks won last weekend (Cowboys, Steelers, Buccaneers and Bears) despite the tough home underdog schedule that it was.
Stay away from road teams.
Stay away from divisional matchups.
Never take a divisional team on the road.
On to Week 13
Titans @ Lions – Bad week to be the Lions. Not like any other week is different, but still.
Seahawks @ Cowboys – Cowboys are a
Cardinals @ Eagles – Cards do not play well on the East as you may have seen (see Jets game for one example), but the Eagles are a mess. I still think Philly pulls this one out in a shootout on Thanksgiving night.
49ers @ Bills –
Ravens @ Bengals – Cincy actually hasn’t been
that bad. Their one-win record doesn’t indicate how they played. Don’t get me wrong, they’re not a good team, but they are better than one win. Don’t be tempted with the Ravens on the road in the division.
Derek Anderson getting back on the field for the Browns. However, you probably have already used Indy at this point.
Panthers @ Packers – Should be a close and exciting game in Lambeau on Sunday – especially if the weather plays a factor.
Dolphins @ Rams – I advised you to use the fish against the Seahawks and Raiders in back-to-back weeks so I doubt you have them at this point in the season. I don’t think I’d take them if I had them on the road anyway.
Saints @ Bucs – Big NFC South battle. Saints need to win if they want to stay in the picture.
Giants @ Redskins – All of a sudden, it’s a huge game for the Skins. A loss drops them to 7-5 and a win by
Falcons @ Chargers – The Broncos are giving
Steelers @ Patriots – I’d like to see the weather cooperate with some snow for this one, too.
Broncos @ Jets – Don’t take the Jets this week. The Broncos have a passing attack, granted it’s been on and off, that can exploit the Jets secondary.
Chiefs @ Raiders – Eww.
Bears @ Vikings – NFC North battle for first place.
Jaguars @ Texans – AFC south battle for the cellar.
1/2. Titans & Cowboys are musts if you have them.
Tempting picks that I am avoiding:
1. Ravens – on the road in the division against Cincy who is better than 1-9-1.
2. Jets – could be due for letdown and Broncos have good passing attack
That is how I rank the teams for Week 13. If you have
DAL, use them on
Indy is on the road, but should take care of
Bills are my fourth option since they are home with an early start to a West coast team. Stay away from those tempting picks this week since I could easily see them losing. Have a great Thanksgiving and enjoy the games!
