I went 10-6 last week straight up, and 12-3-1 against the spread. For the season, that puts me at 113-63 straight up and 85-84-7 against the spread. For a comparison, check out the "experts" over at ESPN.com.
What follows are my picks for the NFL's Week 13:
*Thursday, November 29*
New Orleans 5-6 at Atlanta 10-1 - 8:20 p.m. (Line: ATLANTA by 3.5)
The Falcons are 5-0 at home while the Saints are 2-3 on the road.
---RJ's Pick: Falcons by 1
*Sunday, December 2*
Indianapolis 7-4 at Detroit 4-7 - 1:00 p.m. (Line: DETROIT by 4.5)
The outcome of this game doesn't really matter much to me, as a Lions fan. They ain't making the playoffs this year. But I am interested to see how many times Ndamukong Suh "accidentally" kicks Colts QB Andrew Luck in the nuts.
---RJ's Pick: Lions by 8
Jacksonville 2-9 at Buffalo 4-7 - 1:00 p.m. (Line: BUFFALO by 6)
A crappy warm weather team going to play in a cold weather city in December = The Jaguars are gonna have a bad time.
---RJ's Pick: Bills by 11
Seattle 6-5 at Chicago 8-3 - 1:00 p.m. (Line: CHICAGO by 3.5)
The Bears are 5-1 at home while the Seahawks are 1-5 on the road.
---RJ's Pick: Bears by 9
San Francisco 8-2-1 at St. Louis 4-6-1 - 1:00 p.m. (Line: SAN FRANCISCO by 7)
The last time the 49ers and Rams played, back in Week Ten, they tied. I don't think that's going to happen again.
---RJ's Pick: 49ers by 14
New England 8-3 at Miami 5-6 - 1:00 p.m. (Line: NEW ENGLAND by 7)
The Patriots have won five in a row. Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill has 12 interceptions this season (including six in the last three games) compared to just seven TD passes.
---RJ's Pick: Patriots by 18
Arizona 4-7 at New York Jets 4-7 - 1:00 p.m. (Line: NEW YORK JETS by 4)
The Cardinals have dropped seven straight. The Jets have lost four of their last five.
