NFL Picks, Week 13: Steelers Can Cover And Tebow Will Crush Vikings

Here's our picks against the spread for the next five games on the NFL Week 13 schedule. Our previous five picks are here. As a reminder, we are 87-81 ATS this season. You can still pick against us in our weekly contest which you can join here (ID: 55411, PW: arizona).  We'll have picks for the rest of the schedule posted later in the week.

Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers (-7): This should certainly be an interesting game with the resurgent Bengals and their young offensive stars trying to unseat the grand pappy of the AFC North. While the Bengals should make a game of it, it's hard to see the Steelers losing at home. The spread makes the pick a questionable but in the end the terrible towel should prevail. Pick: Steelers

Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-3): Only one game separates these teams in the standings and statistically, the Panthers are the better team. It's a bit of a toss up but we'll go with the upset. Pick: Panthers

New York Jets at Washington Redskins (+3): If you are a Jets fan you have our sympathies. What a crazy team. They should be good enough to beat the Redskins even on the road but you really never know. Pick: Jets

Denver Broncos at Minnesota Vikings (-1): We picked against the Tim Tebow last week and were punished for it. Not again. In the cold north the Broncos will be well suited to run the ball 40 or 70 times. The game's in a dome? Well, no matter, the Broncos will still run the ball. Adrian Peterson is questionable which doesn't help the Vikings and most importantly, the Denver defense has turned into a dominating unit. We're surprised this line is so small. Pick: Broncos

Indianapolis Colts at New England Patriots (-21): I don't recall a spread this large all season. Of course, when the mighty Pats are at home against the winless Colts it's understandable. Only question here is if Brady will pour it on or if this game will somehow stay out of the laughable zone. Coin toss on that one. Pick: Colts
