NFL Picks

Yes another winning week in the books. In fact we have just ONE losing week all year and that was a 1-2 week. I must admit the week 13 board seems very challenging but we will do our best to be successful again!!

Broncos -1 @ Dolphins: How is it possible a team riding a 7 game losing streak is favored on the road? That line tells you Denver is the play!! The Broncos were down 21-0 at Oakland last week, lost starting quarterback Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian returned and played well. He is back under centre this week and that is a better option than the returning Jay Cutler. Miami looks like a team uninterested while Denver is trying to show John Elway they haven't quit. Denver at least has a decent defence and the Dolphins have zero home field advantage. Pick: Denver

Patriots -8 @ Buffalo: The Bills were mired in a horrific 3 game losing streak following their 5-2 start until an improbable win at Kansas City. The vibe in the Bills room is rocky at best after the rookie head coach bench Tyrod Taylor for a rookie quarterback who threw 5 interceptions in his first half. Now the Bills have gone back to Taylor but it won't matter this week. Unfortunately for Buffalo they have been New England's toy since Tom Brady took over from Drew Bledsoe. Buffalo has only covered 2 of the last 13 games and in those games Brady didn't play the entire game. With New England fighting for home field this probably gets ugly. Pick: Patriots

49ers +3.5 @ Bears: Betting on the 49ers on the road is not something I do often. However Jimmy Garoppolo will make his San Francisco debut and he is a big upgrade on what the 49ers have had at quarterback this season. Jimmy will be motivated playing for a big contract next year. The Bears have played well as a home underdog but laying points with them, no thanks. The Bears struggled to get a first down last week vs Philadelphia and MItchy Biscuits could be good down the road but needs a lot of work. Pick: 49ers

As always good luck, enjoy the games.
