Sorry that these picks weren’t posted up before the games on Thursday. I thought they were going up on the other site but they didn’t make it in time. None the less here are the picks for Sunday’s games, so far I’m 3-0 this week.
Week 13 NFL picks
Bears @ Lions
This is the toughest road game of the year for any team. Most NFL players say they just start feeling normal from last weeks game on Thursday. Well imagine this scenario you have to get on a plane Wednesday night then play early in the morning. At least the Lions can stay loose all day Wednesday. This game is a big spread but here’s why you have to lay the points. The Bears have looked better the last few weeks, but that’s been against subpar teams. The Lions offense is like the top button on your pants on thanksgiving; about to burst out. Megatron is finally fully healthy and he is about to take a proverbial dump all over this Bears secondary. Who’s going to guard him….Kyle Fuller? I think not look for Megatron and Stafford to have a huge day in their way to a rout!

Seahawks @ Niners
The Seahawks defense seems like they are finally hitting their stride last week. They virtually shut down the cardinals offense. The niners had to kick a FG at the end of the game to beat a poor opponent. I think there is a lot of turmoil in the niners locker room and the Seahawks are one big happy nest now.

Cardinals @ Falcons
The cardinals offense looked stagnant against the Seahawks last week, but the Seahawks defense is just getting going. The Falcons are still in the playoff race at 4-7 this team is so bad and it starts with the coach. This is a matchup play for me. Mike smith is a terrible coach and Bruce Arians is a great coach. The Falcons will make errors to give this game away and with bad coaching. The Cardinals defense will bring the heat on Matty ice and he will have no where to run.

Giants @ Jaguars
The Jags have to be the most frustrating team in the league for me. I’ve taken them as double digit dogs 4 times with nothing to show for it but empty pockets. So I’m going to do something crazy tell you why to take them as a 3 point dog. The Giants last hope for the season was to beat the Cowboys last week and go on a run. That didn’t happen and now they are basically eliminated from the playoffs. They are on a short week and just choked away a game. This spells disaster for a road favorite. The Jags got good pressure on Luck last week and we all know what happens to Eli under pressure, the Jag will become his receivers.

Saints & Steelers
The Steelers just watched the rest of their division sweep the Saints, and 2 of them in the SuperDome the last two weeks. The Steelers are 1-14 ATS when favored the week before playing the Bengals….I think they have Tiger phobia! The Saints offense has been better of late and they will be able to put up points. I see this game as a late FG either way as the Steelers might be peeking ahead to next weeks big divisional game in the Queen City
Cody Says: SAINTS (+4.5)
Eagles @ Cowboys
The underdog is covering at a 71% clip in this series since 2010. That alone should be enough to have you wanting to lay the points but here’s some other reasons. The Eagles pass rush is good and the Cowboys won’t be able to pound the rock against them. Not to mention I thing Jerry will be whispering in Garretts ear all week that this is a nationally televised game so he will throw more and try to light up that mega scoreboard in Jerrys world. The Eagles won’t be able to stop Dez but the Cowboys won’t put pressure on Sanchez so he will play well too. Another late game FG winner for me here.
