We have expert betting predictions for Week 13 of the 2020/2021 NFL season. Punters get plenty of great NFL games to bet on this week, including Browns vs. Titans, Colts vs. Texans and Cowboys vs. Ravens.
NFL Week 13 Preview
New Orleans Saints vs. Atlanta Falcons @ Mercedes-Benz Stadium
The Saints scored an easy win over the Broncos last week, but they came up against a team without a quarterback.
We’re not sure what to make of that game, but the Falcons couldn’t have been more impressive when thrashing the Raiders.
It should be a close game, but the value is with the home side.
Betting tip: Falcons to win
Falcons by 6
Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears @ Soldier Field
The Lions suffered another Thanksgiving Day loss but they get some reprieve against a struggling Bears outfit.
Chicago started the season on fire, but offensive troubles have since seen them fall back to 5-6, despite starting 4-0.
A change in quarterback didn’t help last week and this could be a chance for the Lions to score another road win.
Betting tip: Lions to win
Lions by 7
Cleveland Browns vs. Tennessee Titans @ Nissan Stadium
Two 8-3 teams do battle and both the Browns and Titans have looked like potential Superbowl teams this season.
Cleveland has gone under the radar, but with a healthy receiving corps, they shouldn’t be overlooked.
Tennessee relies heavily on Derrick Henry, who was a beast in Week 12. If he can replicate that effort, the Browns could struggle.
Betting tip: Titans to win
Titans by 7
Cincinnati Bengals vs. Miami Dolphins @ Hard Rock Stadium
The fate of the Bengals was signed when Joe Burrow got injured earlier this year, so we don’t hold much hope for them.
Miami is going along nicely at 7-4 and despite some uncertainty at the quarterback position, they are best to go with Tua from now on.
A rebound win looks likely against an inferior team in the Bengals.
Betting tip: Dolphins to win
Dolphins by 10
Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Minnesota Vikings @ U.S. Bank Stadium
Jacksonville is in the discussion as the worst team in the NFL, so we advise punters to back the Vikings this week.
Minnesota hasn’t been the most consistent team this year, but they are talented at best and they should be too good in this matchup.
Kirk Cousins could have a breakout game and set the field alight.
Betting tip: Vikings –8.5
Vikings by 12
Las Vegas Raiders vs. New York Jets @ MetLife Stadium
They should be called the New York Yets, because they have yet to register a win on what has been a dreadful season.
Clearly playing for a top draft pick, the Jets haven’t taken off. They get a chance to beat the Raiders, who were embarrassed by the Falcons last week.
However, if the Raiders are worth their salt, they should put the Jets to sleep early.
Betting tip: Raiders to win
Raiders by 7
Indianapolis Colts vs. Houston Texans @ NRG Stadium
It hasn’t been all smooth sailing for the Colts at 7-4 but they have been tough to beat this season.
They have a winning record on the road and they’re about to face a Texans side that is growing in confidence.
This could be a tricky game for the visitors, but they are the better side and that should show on Monday.
Betting tip: Colts to win
Colts by 7
LA Rams vs. Arizona Cardinals @ State Farm Stadium
The Cardinals lost another close game to the New England Patriots last week, so they need to bounce back.
Another team that needs to bounce back are the Rams, who were beaten by an injury-ravaged 49ers team last week.
LA has more weapons on defense and that could be the telling statistic at the end of this game.
Betting tip: Rams to win
Rams by 9
New York Giants vs. Seattle Seahawks @ Lumen Field
With an unbeaten home record, the Seattle Seahawks deserve to be heavy favourites against New York.
Seattle came through a tricky game against Philadelphia last week, scoring a six-point victory which was closer than it looked.
They’re not playing their best, but Russell Wilson is an elite quarterback and Giants QB Daniel Jones is out injured.
Betting tip: Seahawks –9.5
Seahawks by 13
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Green Bay Packers @ Lambeau Field
Philadelphia boasts a great defense but their offense has no confidence. Carson Wentz has no time to find an open receiver, which has led to turnover and sacking problems.
There are no such issues for the Packers, who aren’t great defensively, but Aaron Rodgers and the offense are humming.
We expect the Packers to score more points than the Eagles can muster.
Betting tip: Packers –8.5
Packers by 13
New England Patriots vs. LA Chargers @ SoFi Stadium
The Chargers opened as favourites for this game, but strong money has come for the Patriots throughout the week.
New England is coming off a gritty win last week, but Cam Newton doesn’t look comfortable in this offensive scheme.
LA has a rookie QB, but with 23 touchdowns to his name, he has his confidence levels up. The Chargers could take charge of this game early.
Betting tip: Chargers to win
Chargers by 6
Denver Broncos vs. Kansas City Chiefs @ Arrowhead Stadium
The Broncos are having quarterback issues with Covid and the Chiefs have the best quarterback in the league.
That could spell trouble for Denver this week and we’re not surprised to see bookmakers open the Chiefs as $1.11 favourites.
They should roll over the Broncos, who will struggle to keep up offensively.
Betting tip: Chiefs –13.5
Chiefs by 17
Washington vs. Pittsburgh Steelers @ Heinz Field
The Steelers are the only unbeaten team in the NFL and we don’t see that changing against Washington.
Coming in fresh after a bye week, Pittsburgh should be too strong for their rivals and record a comfortable victory.
They are 10-0 and that should become 11-0 on Monday morning.
Betting tip: Steelers –10.5
Steelers by 14
Buffalo Bills vs. San Francisco 49ers @ State Farm Stadium
The 49ers scored an upset victory over the Rams last week and that will give them confidence.
It has been a tough season for the 49ers, who have battled injury problems from the opening day.
Buffalo is a tough team to beat and with this game being played at a neutral ground, it won’t favour the 49ers.
Betting tip: Bills to win
Bills by 7
Dallas Cowboys vs. Baltimore Ravens @ M&T Bank Stadium
The Cowboys and Ravens need a confidence boost on a rare Wednesday game for the NFL.
Baltimore started the season nicely but they have struggled since. At 6-4, the Ravens need to recapture their offensive power with Lamar Jackson.
Dallas is going through the motions on what will be another disappointing season.
Betting tip: Ravens to win
