We're in the final stretch of the NFL season and Week 14 will serve as the final week that we won't see all 16 teams in action. Six teams will finally serve their BYE, which means we have 13 games to bet on.

If you don't care about the point spread, you've come to the right place. In this article, I'll give you my straight up moneyline pick for all 13 games. Spreads don't matter here.

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


Las Vegas Raiders vs. Los Angeles Rams

  • Pick: Raiders -265

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Tennessee Titans

  • Pick: Titans -189

Minnesota Vikings vs. Detroit Lions

  • Pick: Lions -125

The Vikings are the biggest frauds in the NFL. If the result of every single score game was flipped, the Vikings would be 1-11 this season. Their defense would struggle to slow down a pop warner offense, and the Lions are no joke.

Detroit has been one of the hottest teams in the NFL the past few weeks, and I expected that to keep up this week.

Houston Texans vs. Dallas Cowboys

  • Pick: Cowboys -1667

Philadelphia Eagles vs. New York Giants

  • Pick: Eagles -275

Cleveland Browns vs. Cincinnati Bengals

  • Pick: Bengals -215

Baltimore Ravens vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

  • Pick: Ravens +128

I know Tyler Huntley will be playing at quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens, but I don't care. I still believe they're a significantly better team than the Pittsburgh Steelers, who have struggled defensively all season long.

New York Jets vs.  Buffalo Bills

  • Pick: Bills -370

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Denver Broncos

  • Pick: Chiefs -400

Carolina Panthers vs. Seattle Seahawks

  • Pick: Panthers +172

The Panthers are my upset pick of the week. Sam Darnold performed admirably in his first start against the Denver Broncos two weeks ago, and if he can repeat that performance this week, the Seahawks will be in a good spot.

The Panthers pass defense has been amongst the best in the NFL this season, and that could play a key role in the outcome of this game.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. San Francisco 49ers

  • Pick: 49ers -175

Miami Dolphins vs. Los Angeles Chargers

  • Pick: Dolphins -167

New England Patriots vs. Arizona Cardinals

  • Pick: Patriots -125
