NFL Best Bets for Week 13

  • Seahawks -7 vs. Los Angeles Rams (-110)
  • Titans +5.5 at Eagles (-110)
  • Raiders ML vs. Chargers (+105)

Seahawks -7 vs. Los Angeles Rams (-110)

I’m as out on the Rams as you can possibly be. They were without Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp last week. Now, they’ll be without Aaron Donald. Those are the three of their four best players not available, so I’m not sure what Bryce Perkins can provide this week. 

The Seattle Seahawks, although on a two-game losing streak, still have an offense that needs to be respected. They’ve put up 27 points in four of the last five games – scoring 30 in three of them. 

Los Angeles doesn’t have the firepower or the defensive capabilities to stay with them.  – Donnavan Smoot

Titans +5.5 at Eagles (-110)

For most of the season, I’ve been tempted to fade the Titans, given their lack of consistent offensive talent. Yet up until last week, they had covered in seven consecutive games, and own the best ATS record in the league at 8-3-0 with the New York Giants and Cincinnati Bengals, covering just under 73% of their games.

Even with their loss last week, I’m back on board on the road in Philadelphia.

Via Sharp Football Analysis, Mike Vrabel has covered 68% of his games when listed as an underdog of 4-points or larger, going 15-7 ATS in his career since taking the Titans gig.

The Titans also have done well stopping the run, ranking second in the NFL in opponent yards/rush, and have allowed the least number of rushing touchdowns in football. They also have the league’s best opponent third down conversion percentage.

The Eagles have very few flaws on both sides of the field, but the TItans are built to muck it up, and keep it close. If they have the lead, they have the perfect weapon in Derrick Henry to sit on it.

I’d play this down to +4.5. – Ben Heisler

Raiders ML vs. Chargers (+105)

This might be a hot take, but the Los Angeles Chargers are a bad football team. Heading into Week 13, they rank 19th in net yards per play.

The main reason for that is their defense is absolutely terrible, ranking 30th in opponent yards per play. They'll have their work cut out for them this week when they take on a Raiders offense that has moved all the way up to fifth in the league in yards per play.

Josh Jacobs has proved to be a force for Las Vehas, and the Raiders are averaging 5.2 yards per carry on the ground this year. Now, they get to face the league's worst run defense that's allowing 5.4 yards per rush. That's a recipe for disaster for Los Angeles.

Forget the points, give me the Raiders to win this game outright. I have zero faith in Los Angeles to be able to do anything to stop the Las Vegas offense. - Iain MacMillan
