Welcome to Week 13 of the 2018 NFL season! The San Francisco 49ers are traveling to face the Seattle Seahawks this Sunday, but in the meantime, we get started with a potentially fun Thursday Night Football contest between the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints.
The 49ers are currently a ten-point underdog to the Seahawks, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. San Francisco is clearly not a useful Survivor pick, but what do you think their chances are in this one? I think even covering the ten points will be tough, but, what would it take to spring the upset?
If you’re still alive in your Survivor pool, there are some interesting options this week. The Chiefs over the Raiders, Packers over Cardinals, and Seahawks over 49ers are likely to be three popular picks. If you are thinking about using the Eagles at home over Washington, I would stay away. It could be a trap.
This week gets started with the Cowboys hosting the Saints on TNF. New Orleans is a touchdown road favorite, although one sportsbook monitored by OddsShark has it as Saints -7.5. Even on the road, this seems like a game the Saints could roll in. I could see it turning into a shootout, but I see the Saints winning by ten or more. I’ll lay the points.
Here are all my straight-up picks for Week 12. I was 9-6 last week, bringing my season record to 111-62-2. I’ll have the rest of my picks against the spread later this weekend.
