2021 NFL Season: Best Bets for Week 13

After an exciting week of NFL Football, a week that included three Thanksgiving Day games, we are making more progress toward reaching our goal of being in the green at the end of the 2021 NFL Season. I did not post an article last week due to the holiday, but, I did post Week 12 picks on my Twitter account.

Last Sunday I went 1-2 on the day, but I had a huge Monday Night as my Washington Football Team took on the Seattle Seahawks. I went 4-1 on Monday night and the only bet I did not hit was a 1U wager at +1200 odds.

My record for Week 12 was 5-3 for an increase of 7.4 units. For the season I am now 39-23 +48.4 units, and more impressively, I am 10-0 betting player props for Washington Football Team games this season.

We are entering the final stretch of the NFL season and there is a ton of excitement left. There are some tight divisional races, some even crazier Wild Card races, and some teams that have begun scouting for a top 10 draft choice. I am excited to continue to journey toward beating Vegas this season, so without further ado, let’s take a look at my best bets for Week 13 of the 2021 NFL Season.

NFL Week 13 Bets I am Playing:

3U 2 tm 6 pt Teaser Washington Football Team +8.5/ O43.5 @ Las Vegas Raiders -110

Riding a three-game win streak, Washington heads to the west coast to take on the Las Vegas Raiders in a must-win game for both teams. The Raiders are coming off a huge Thanksgiving day win and entered this game as a 1.5 point favorite. The line hit 2.5, and I immediately teased Washington up, I do not think they lose by more than a touchdown if they do lose. The Raiders are solid on offense and I anticipate a higher scoring game

3U 2 tm 6 pt Teaser Los Angeles Rams -6.5/Miami Dolphins PK -110

The Rams have been disappointing lately, and they get a great matchup at home this week against the lowly Jaguars. The Rams need to make a statement, and they are given a great opportunity to get back on the right track.

Down in Miami, the Dolphins will take on the Giants without starting QB Daniel Jones. The Giants aren’t good with Jones, and I do not think they will be any better without him. The Dolphins will extend their winning streak to five games.

3U 2 tm 6 pt Teaser Washington @ Las Vegas O42/Detroit Lions +13.5 -110

As previously stated, I anticipate a lot of scoring in the Washington Las Vegas game, and the number actually went down. So, since I already liked it at 43.5, I am doubling down on the over in this game.

While the winless Lions are one of, if not the, worst teams in football, they generally play the Vikings tough. I’m not happy to be riding the Lions, but they also are one of the best teams in the NFL against the spread this season, so I feel comfortable adding six more points.

3U Los Angeles Chargers +3 @ Cincinnati Bengals -110

The Chargers have had a very up and down season so far. They are firmly in the AFC playoff race, and they take on a Bengals team that is ahead of them in the standings. While both teams are very solid, and I know the Bengals will feed Joe Mixon against the Chargers’ poor run defense, I would not be shocked to see a Chargers outright victory. I was waiting for this line to hit 3.5, but I have not seen one available, so we will take the field goal and the potential for a push.

Last Week: 5-3 +7.4U

Season Total: 39-23 +48.4U
