2017: On The Line — Week 13
The lines are looked at vigorously for those trying to make some extra money or those just looking for who is favored this weekend. Before my picks each week, I will list my current win/loss and push record from the previous week with my overall season record. I present to you the Vegas line of each NFL game this week:
Week 12: 12–4
Overall Record: 96–75–5 (56.1%)
TNF: Redskins (-1.5) at Cowboys
Redskins (-1.5). The Redskins, favored on the road scares me but NO ZEKE, no problem.
Vikings at Falcons (-2)
Vikings (+2). Both teams are hot so I will side with the even hotter team in this match up, Minnesota.
Patriots (-8) at Bills
Patriots (-8). Take my money pleaseeeeeeeeeeee. Less than 10 points for the Pats? Give me more.
49ers at Bears (-2.5)
49ers (+2.5). Jimmy G is starting. That is all.
Buccaneers at Packers (-3)
Packers (-3). Hundley stayed with the Steelers last week and their performance carries over this week.
Texans at Titans (-7)
Texans (+7). The Titans continue to struggle in my eyes. Give me Houston.
Broncos (-1.5) at Dolphins
Dolphins (+1.5). I now have zero faith in any Denver quarterback. I may just have to install a “don’t pick the Browns until they win” philosophy for the Broncos.
Chiefs (-4) at Jets
Chiefs (-4). After last weeks’ terrible loss to the Giants, the Chiefs get up and smash the Jets this week.
Colts at Jaguars (-9.5)
Jaguars (-9.5). I do not know if the Colts can move the ball against this stellar defense.
Lions at Ravens (-2.5)
Ravens (-2.5). Stafford is hurt coming into this game and sadly, the Ravens take advantage of it.
Browns at Chargers (-14)
Chargers (-14). Do not pick the Browns until they win.
Giants at Raiders (-9.5)
Giants (+9.5). Eli got benched to only come in late and seal a victory in Oakland.
Panthers at Saints (-6)
Saints (-6). The Saints are just the better team in this match up. I’ll take New Orleans 9 of 10 times, if not 10 of 10.
Rams (-7) at Cardinals
Rams (-7). Blane Gabbert vs Jared Goff. Give me Goff and that is hard for me to say after I was one of the folks who was not a true believer in the number one overall pick.
SNF: Eagles (-4) at Seahawks
Seahawks (+4). The hawks should not be a road underdog. Seattle comes out swinging and pull off the upset.
MNF: Steelers (-4.5) at Bengals
Steelers (-4.5). Yet another chance for the Steelers to throw a stinker at us but I’ll vote against it this week.
