View Full Version : NFL - Week 13

1st December 2011, 10:23 AM
Week 13 of the NFL is this weekend. On Thursday Seattle host Philadelphia, who will continue to start with Vince Young in the absence of injured Michael Vick. With both teams holding 4-7 records, most pundits have written off their chances of making the playoffs. A potential demolition job is looming when the Patriots host the Colts on Sunday. At the beginning of the season this had been slated as one of the most highly anticipated fixtures of the season, but with Peyton Manning absent and the Colts holding a 0-11 record, bookmakers have given them a 20-point head start. After conceding 49 against New Orleans, the NY Giants defence will have their work cut out for them again when they host the Packers. The over/under for this game is 52 points. On Monday Night Football the Jacksonville Jaguars host the San Diego Chargers in what must be said is a fairly unexciting fixture. Both teams are struggling. Jacksonville fired their coach this week while the Chargers are on a six game losing streak.

Below are the latest odds (subject to change):

I'm really enjoying the NFL this season. The more I watch the more I enjoy it.

Here are the CBS Sports expert picks for the round:

Head to head:

Philadelphia (1.61) <-- I'm surprised they all agree on this one
Chicago (1.30)
Pittsburgh (1.35)
New England (1.03) <-- I'll wear a dress to work next week if they lose this
Baltimore (1.35)
Dallas (1.45)
San Franciso (1.14) <-- I don't think this is good value
New Orleans (1.22) <-- wouldn't want to bet against them with the form their offence is in


No consensus anywhere, although four of the five experts pick:

Atlanta (-2.5)
San Francisco (-13.5)
Dallas (-4.5)
Washington (+3.5)
