NFL Week 13 Betting Underdogs

Written by on November 30, 2016

Did you know that there are only five more weeks in the NFL’s regular season? Injuries are taking their tolls on some squads; some underachievers are turning over a new leaf to finish strong. Take a look at all of our sports betting picks for the end of November and the first weekend in December. As always, home teams are in all caps.

NFL Week 13 Betting Underdogs

Sunday, 1:00pm ET: Los Angeles (+13.5) over NEW ENGLAND

Tom Brady is playing on a gimpy knee, and Rob Gronkowski is highly questionable for Sunday’s game, as what may have been a punctured lung against Seattle recurred last week — or turned into a back injury, depending on who you listened to. Yes, the Rams gave up 49 points to the New Orleans Saints last week, but I like the Rams to make their needed adjustments on defense. I’m not saying that rookie quarterback Jared Goff can lead his team into Foxboro and come out with a win, but I am saying that the Rams cover this big spread.

Sunday, 4:25pm ET: New York Giants (+6.5) over PITTSBURGH

The New York Giants come in riding a six-game winning streak against a Pittsburgh team that still struggles when it comes to sustaining drives up and down the field. Le’Veon Bell and Ben Roethlisberger have had two decent weeks, but the Giants are firing on all cylinders offensively. I’m not sure that the Giants can get past the Steelers in this game, but I do think that the Giants can stay closer than a touchdown in this interconference matchup.

Sunday, 4:25pm ET: Washington (+2.5) over ARIZONA

The Cardinals have dropped two straight and sit at 4-6- 1. Meanwhile, the Washington Redskins are looking to bounce back from a tough Thanksgiving Day loss at Dallas. Kirk Cousins threw for 449 yards in that loss, and the Redskins have shown that they can drive up and down the field on anyone. The Cardinals were known earlier in the season for an ironclad defense, but their recent spate of losses shows that they have problems slowing down just about anyone.

Sunday, 4:25pm ET: Tampa Bay (+4) over SAN DIEGO

In the past two weeks, Tampa Bay has knocked off the Kansas City Chiefs on the road and the Seattle Seahawks at home, holding two solid offenses at bay. The Seahawks only posted a safety and a field goal against Tampa Bay, as the Bucs’ physical, quick defense just flew all over the field. San Diego has an explosive offense, but given their heavy reliance on the passing game, I see the Tampa Bay pass rush giving them all sorts of headaches. San Diego does not have the sort of defense that will intimidate the Bucs, not after they beat the Chiefs and the Seahawks.
