There will be a tragic, sad pall cast over today’s NFL games after the terrible situation that played out yesterday in Kansas City. Alas, the games – even in Kansas City – do go on as scheduled. Below is your lineup for Week 13. NFL Week 13 Viewer’s and Bettor’s Guide TV Schedules – Point Spreads – Picks – Kickoff Times New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons Saints-Falcons Date: Thursday, November 29 Saints-Falcons Kickoff Time: 8:20 PM Saints-Falcons TV Network: NFL Network Saints-Falcons Point Spread: Falcons -3 Saints-Falcons Over-Under Odds: 55.5 Saints-Falcons Pick: Pick not submitted before Thursday’s game. Jacksonville Jaguars at Buffalo Bills Jaguars-Bills Date: Sunday, December 2 Jaguars-Bills Kickoff Time: 1 PM Jaguars-Bills TV Network: CBS Jaguars-Bills Point Spread: Bills -6 Jaguars-Bills Over-Under Odds: 45.5 Jaguars-Bills Pick: The Jaguars were able to come away with a win last week over the Titans, led by Chad Henne at quarterback. Buffalo lost to the Colts, but they still have two more wins than the Jaguars this season. It may seem to be a stretch, but look for the Jaguars to win this game under the play of Henne. Jaguars +6 Seattle Seahawks at Chicago Bears Seahawks-Bears Date: Sunday, December 2 Seahawks-Bears Kickoff Time: 1 PM Seahawks-Bears TV Network: FOX Seahawks-Bears Point Spread: Bears -3.5 Seahawks-Bears Over-Under Odds: 37.5 Seahawks-Bears Pick: Jay Cutler returned last week and led the Bears to an easy win over the declining Vikings. The Seahawks picked up their fifth road loss last week in Miami, and must face another road test in Chicago. Simply due to their road woes, it is enough to go with the Bears in this one. Bears -3.5 Indianapolis Colts at Detroit Lions Colts-Lions Date: Sunday, December 2 Colts-Lions Kickoff Time: 1 PM Colts-Lions TV Network: CBS Colts-Lions Point Spread: Lions -4.5 Colts-Lions Over-Under Odds: 51 Colts-Lions Pick: The Lions fell to 4-7 after last week’s overtime loss on Thanksgiving day. They had chances to win in overtime, but were ultimately done in after a penalty for trying to challenge a scoring play. The Colts took down the Bills to get to 7-4, but are still underdogs in this matchup. The Lions are only 2-3 at home, and with the skill of the Colts, will not improve that record. Colts +4.5 Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers Vikings-Packers Date: Sunday, December 2 Vikings-Packers Kickoff Time: 1 PM Vikings-Packers TV Network: FOX Vikings-Packers Point Spread: Packers -9 Vikings-Packers Over-Under Odds: 46.5 Vikings-Packers Pick: The Vikings were very disappointing in their loss against the Bears last week. A win would have put them in a three-way tie for first in the NFC North, but they only managed to score ten points. The Packers were blown out by the Giants, 38-10, so they did not fare any better than the Vikings. The Packers should win this game, but if they do it will be much closer than nine points. Vikings +9 Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans Texans-Titans Date: Sunday, December 2 Texans-Titans Kickoff Time: 1 PM Texans-Titans TV Network: CBS Texans-Titans Point Spread: Texans -6 Texans-Titans Over-Under Odds: 47 Texans-Titans Pick: The Texans came away with an overtime victory over the Lions on Thanksgiving to improve to 10-1. They have already beaten the Titans once this season and it came by 24 points. Tennessee lost to the lowly Jaguars last week, so there is no chance for them to win in this game. Texans -6 Carolina Panthers at Kansas City Chiefs Panthers-Chiefs Date: Sunday, December 2 Panthers-Chiefs Kickoff Time: 1 PM Panthers-Chiefs TV Network: FOX Panthers-Chiefs Point Spread: Panthers -3 Panthers-Chiefs Over-Under Odds: 41 Panthers-Chiefs Pick: The fact that this game is being played is slightly controversial due to the murder-suicide committed by Chiefs player Jovan Belcher. He took his own life in front of some of his coaches at the team’s facility, so their focus will surely not be on the game when it is played. Due to all the noise of the situation take the Panthers in this matchup. Panthers -3 San Francisco 49ers at St. Louis Rams 49ers-Rams Date: Sunday, December 2 49ers-Rams Kickoff Time: 1 PM 49ers-Rams TV Network: FOX 49ers-Rams Point Spread: 49ers -7.5 49ers-Rams Over-Under Odds: 40 49ers-Rams Pick: The last time these two teams met they ended in a tie, which is easily the worst thing in football. Both teams picked up a win last week, but the 49ers’ win over the Saints is far more impressive than the Rams’ over the Cardinals. Colin Kaepernick will get the start once again, and should be able to lead his team to victory. As with a few other games the spread is too high to go with the favorite, so take the Rams in this one. Rams +7.5 New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins Patriots-Dolphins Date: Sunday, December 2 Patriots-Dolphins Kickoff Time: 1 PM Patriots-Dolphins TV Network: CBS Patriots-Dolphins Point Spread: Patriots -9 Patriots-Dolphins Over-Under Odds: 51 Patriots-Dolphins Pick: The Patriots have won five in a row since they were 3-3 back in Week 6. The Dolphins are 5-6, and are only 1-3 in their last four games. The Patriots have scored at least 37 points in each of their last three games, including 49 against the Jets on Thanksgiving. The large spread will be upheld with the Pats’ in this one. Patriots -9 Arizona Cardinals at New York Jets Cardinals-Jets Date: Sunday, December 2 Cardinals-Jets Kickoff Time: 1 PM Cardinals-Jets TV Network: FOX Cardinals-Jets Point Spread: Jets -4.5 Cardinals-Jets Over-Under Odds: 37 Cardinals-Jets Pick: Both teams are 4-7 on the year, but the Cardinals have not won a game sine Week 4. The Jets only have one win since Week 6, but they will pick up their fifth on the year against Arizona. Jets -4.5 Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Denver Broncos Buccaneers-Broncos Date: Sunday, December 2 Buccaneers-Broncos Kickoff Time: 4:05 PM Buccaneers-Broncos TV Network: FOX Buccaneers-Broncos Point Spread: Broncos -7 Buccaneers-Broncos Over-Under Odds: 50.5 Buccaneers-Broncos Pick: The Broncos are touchdown favorites in this game, but they struggled to pull out a victory last week against the Chiefs. The Bucs’ only lost by one point to the 11-1 Falcons, which ended their four-game win streak. The Broncos should win, but it will be much close than the spread will make it seem. Buccaneers +7 Cleveland Browns at Oakland Raiders Browns-Raiders Date: Sunday, December 2 Browns-Raiders Kickoff Time: 4:25 PM Browns-Raiders TV Network: CBS Browns-Raiders Point Spread: Browns -3 Browns-Raiders Over-Under Odds: 40 Browns-Raiders Pick: The Browns picked up their third win of the season last week against the Steelers, who had eight turnovers in the game. They take on the Raiders who have lost each of their last four games by double-digit margins. The Browns have been better than their record shows, and will pull out the win in Oakland. Browns -3 Cincinnati Bengals at San Diego Chargers Bengals-Chargers Date: Sunday, December 2 Bengals-Chargers Kickoff Time: 4:25 PM Bengals-Chargers TV Network: CBS Bengals-Chargers Point Spread: Bengals -2 Bengals-Chargers Over-Under Odds: 46.5 Bengals-Chargers Pick: The Bengals have won three in a row, all by double-digits, to get over the .500 mark at 6-5. They are currently seventh in the playoff race, as they lose the tiebreaker to Pittsburgh, who is in the sixth spot. San Diego has lost their last three to drop themselves out of playoff contention. Even after a tight game with Baltimore last week, still expect the Chargers to drop this one to the Bengals. Bengals -2 Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens Steelers-Ravens Date: Sunday, December 2 Steelers-Ravens Kickoff Time: 4:25 PM Steelers-Ravens TV Network: CBS Steelers-Ravens Point Spread: Ravens -7.5 Steelers-Ravens Over-Under Odds: 35 Steelers-Ravens Pick: The Steelers only lost by three to the Ravens two weeks ago, and that was with Byron Leftwich playing quarterback. Charlie Batch will get his second start in a row after a loss in Cleveland last week, that was not all entirely his fault. Five lost fumbles came from other offensive players, including each active running back. Baltimore is 9-2, but they do tend to play close games. Even with Batch starting this game will be close throughout, but one in which the Ravens will surely win. Steelers +7.5 Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys Eagles-Cowboys Date: Sunday, December 2 Eagles-Cowboys Kickoff Time: 8:20 PM Eagles-Cowboys TV Network: NBC Eagles-Cowboys Point Spread: Cowboys -10 Eagles-Cowboys Over-Under Odds: 43 Eagles-Cowboys Pick: The Cowboys lost a close game to the Redskins on Thanksgiving, but fell short at the end. The Eagles lost their seventh game in a row last week, this time against the Panthers on Monday Night Football. The Cowboys will give the Eagles their eighth straight loss, and get back to .500. Cowboys -10 New York Giants at Washington Redskins Giants-Redskins Date: Monday, December 3 Giants-Redskins Kickoff Time: 8:30 PM Giants-Redskins TV Network: ESPN Giants-Redskins Point Spread: Giants -3 Giants-Redskins Over-Under Odds: 51 Giants-Redskins Pick: The Redskins picked up a big win over Dallas last week to keep them in the hunt for the NFC East. A win over the Giants would put them one game behind the division-leading Giants. This proves a tough task, as New York had a 28-point win over the Packers last week. They will not falter at all this week and will improve to 8-4, essentially locking up the division title. Giants -3 Last Week: 9-7 Yearly Record: 84-87-5 The post NFL Week 13 TV Schedule, Picks, and Point Spreads appeared first on Midwest Sports Fans.
