Free Preview: NFL Pickbook Week 13
Week 13 has a full slate with double digit favors all over the board in some bad matchups. Rob Trayah looks at this weekend's matchups in hopes of adding to the wallet
The spreads in week 13 are dreadful. Home dogs all around against teams desperate for wins to stay in playoff contention. Five double-digit spreads of the remaining 14 games, but Rob Trayah directs you were to find the money on Sunday.
|Team||Opp||Last5||H/A||STR||WG O/U||WG ML||WG Spread||Caesars O/U||Caesars ML||Caesars Spread||CGT O/U||CGT ML||CGT Spread||BreakDown|
|Seattle Seahawks||San Francisco 49ers||4-1||6-2||46||-550||-10||46||-520||-10||46||-540||-10||46||-500||-10||46||-500||-10||46||-435||-9.5||45.5||-446||-9.5||This line is puzzling to say the least. The 49ers are just not that good and the Seahawks are proving they are going to be around come playoff time in the NFC. Their defense struggled last week early in Carolina, but woke up in the second half and kept them in the game long enough for Russell Wilson to work his magic and get a big win on the road. After traveling to Tampa and getting beat handily, San Francisco travels up the coast to a tough home situation with Seattle with no real quarterback. Seattle should pound the ground game early and not let up on defense as they look to retain a hold on the sixth playoff spot in the NFC.|
|Kansas City Chiefs||Oakland Raiders||3-2||5-3||55||-1200||-14||55||-1401||-14||55||-1499||-14||55||-1300||-14.5||55||-14||55.5||-1000||-14.5||55.5||-952||-14.5||The Kareem Hunt fiasco is just that. A fiasco. Having Andy Reed around for this, off a bye, is exactly what KC needs. Going in to Oakland is exactly what KC needs. Hunt's release moved the line a point. One point. Oakland is terrible and this divisional game is very important for the Chiefs to maintain home field advantage as well the division lead in the AFC West. Expect the throttle to be down to the ground for KC in this game.|
|Cleveland Browns||Houston Texans||3-2||2-6||47.5||210||+5.5||47.5||220||+6||47.5||210||+5.5||47.5||210||+6||47.5||220||+5.5||47.5||190||+5.5||47.5||215||+5.5||Folks, the Browns are good. Hate it if you want, but Cleveland has won two straight games outright since Hue Jackson lost his job with an offense that didn't really play in the second half last week. The Texans are good as well, but are on a short week and have a two game lead in the South, this isn't a must win game. With Nick Chubb and Duke Johnson running the back field, Baker Mayfield has plenty of options to spread the wealth. This is Cleveland's first chance to get out of the AFC North's cellar and continue to progress.|
|Miami Dolphins||Buffalo Bills||2-3||6-2||40||-190||-3.5||40.5||-190||-4||40||-185||-4||40||-190||-4||40||-200||-4||40||-200||-3.5||40.5||-190||-3.5||Ryan Tannehill's return last week was ruined by a late fourth quarter falter by the Dolphins' defense, but Miami returns home to take on the Bills.This will be the first time that Josh Allen sees the Dolphins this season, and road Josh Allen is not worth the headaches against a decent defense. He has yet to reach the 200-yard mark at all on the road, with 1 TD and 2 INT in four games this season. Hot temperatures down in Miami with the Bills traveling after a win and Miami desperate for a win, take the Fins in a defensive battle.|
