We're officially in the final stretch of the NFL season as teams gear up for Week 13 action.

Only two times are on BYE this week, which means we have 15 games to bet on. In this article, I'll be giving you my pick for which team will win each game, without any consideration for the point spread. Moneyline and straight up picks will be the focus of this article.

If you want my best bet for each game including spreads and totals, check out this week's episode of the Bacon Bets Podcast.

But for now, here are my straight up picks for all 15 NFL Week 13 games.

NFL Week 13 Moneyline Bets

Buffalo Bills vs. New England Patriots

  • Pick: Bills -180

Washington Commanders vs. New York Giants

  • Pick: Commanders -134

New York Jets vs. Minnesota Vikings

  • Pick: Jets +132

It's time to respect the Jets. Their defense has been elite all season and Mike White may be the key to giving the offense enough momentum to allow the defense to win games for them.

Tennessee Titans vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Pick: Eagles -225

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Detroit Lions

  • Pick: Jaguars -107

Denver Broncos vs. Baltimore Ravens

  • Pick: Ravens -350

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Atlanta Falcons

  • Pick: Steelers -108

Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears

  • Pick: Packers -190

Cleveland Browns vs. Houston Texans

  • Pick: Texans +270

Seattle Seahawks vs. Los Angeles Rams

  • Pick: Seahawks -325

Miami Dolphins vs. San Francisco 49ers

  • Pick: 49ers -200

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Cincinnati Bengals

  • Pick: Chiefs -130

The Chiefs offense has been the best in the NFL this season and I don't know if the Bengals can keep pace. Kansas City is averaging 7.4 yards per play over their last three games, the best mark in the NFL over that stretch.

Los Angeles Chargers vs. Las Vegas Raiders

  • Pick: Raiders -107

The Chargers defense has been amongst the worst in the NFL, and their inability to stop the run is going to hurt them when they face Josh Jacobs and the Raiders offense. Unless Justin Herbert is prepared to play in a shootout, Los Angeles is going to struggle to keep pace with the Las Vegas offense.

Indianapolis Colts vs. Dallas Cowboys

  • Pick: Cowboys -550

New Orleans Saints vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

  • Pick: Saints +165

The Saints have historically done well against Tom Brady, and they're a lot better than their record indicates this season. They rank inside the top 10 in net yards per play, but have struggled in the turnover department. If they can stop turning the ball over, they'll be a contender down the stretch.
