B-Man's NFL Picks for Week 13
Posted on Wednesday, November 26, 2014 at 11:35pm

Welcome to Week 13 of the 2014 NFL season and Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I am thankful that I at least got 4 right last week and didn't get shutout. Ouch, what a tough week!

If you haven't already, go ahead and like the The NFL Picks Page on Facebook and "followed" @nflpickspage on Twitter.

Speaking of Facebook, you can comment on my picks using your Facebook account (scroll to the bottom of this page). So, go ahead and tell me what you really think of my picks or the site or anything. Have at it.

On to my Week 13 picks. Let's go!

BEARS at LIONS
Line: Lions by 6 1/2
Vs Spread: 70.1% of you picked the LIONS
Straight-Up: 91.7% of you picked the LIONS
BEARS
LIONS
Detroit's offense has disappeared while Chicago's has gotten back on track. I think this will be a competitive division battle.
EAGLES at COWBOYS
Line: Cowboys by 2 1/2
Vs Spread: 66.6% of you picked the COWBOYS
Straight-Up: 74.4% of you picked the COWBOYS
COWBOYS
COWBOYS
I think Dallas has a big advantage with Romo over Sanchez and the Cowboys D should give him fits.
SEAHAWKS at 49ERS
Line: 49ers by 1/2
Vs Spread: 51.9% of you picked the SEAHAWKS
Straight-Up: 50.6% of you picked the 49ERS
SEAHAWKS
SEAHAWKS
The defending champs have found their defense again. I expect them to shut the 49ers down and keep this a low-scoring affair.
CHARGERS at RAVENS
Line: Ravens by 5 1/2
Vs Spread: 68.1% of you picked the RAVENS
Straight-Up: 85.7% of you picked the RAVENS
RAVENS
RAVENS
I don't really think Baltimore is 6 points better than the Chargers, but there's a lot to be said (not a lot good either) about San Diego travelling cross country to the cold Eastern seaboard in a holiday week. Remember what Miami did to them a few weeks ago?
BROWNS at BILLS
Line: Bills by 1 1/2
Vs Spread: 55.9% of you picked the BILLS
Straight-Up: 58.4% of you picked the BILLS
BILLS
BILLS
Buffalo is back home -- really home -- and they are on a roll, playing well in all phases. They should prevail on a short line against the up and down Browns.
TITANS at TEXANS
Line: Texans by 6 1/2
Vs Spread: 78.5% of you picked the TEXANS
Straight-Up: 95.8% of you picked the TEXANS
TITANS
TITANS
Poor Ryan Mallett. Finally gets his chance and an injury ends his season. With Fitzpatrick back, I like the Titans to not only cover but get the outright upset.
REDSKINS at COLTS
Line: Colts by 9 1/2
Vs Spread: 75.4% of you picked the COLTS
Straight-Up: 97.6% of you picked the COLTS
REDSKINS
COLTS
Colt McCoy replaces RGIII and that gives me hope that Washington can make this a game. The Colts D still struggles against the run and the 'Skins do that well.
GIANTS at JAGUARS
Line: Giants by 2 1/2
Vs Spread: 84.8% of you picked the GIANTS
Straight-Up: 89.8% of you picked the GIANTS
GIANTS
GIANTS
The Giants had Dallas on the ropes, a week after having the 49ers on the ropes. Jacksonville is still playing like a JV team. So 2.5 is a short line for the Giants to cover.
PANTHERS at VIKINGS
Line: Vikings by 2 1/2
Vs Spread: 70.4% of you picked the VIKINGS
Straight-Up: 78.5% of you picked the VIKINGS
PANTHERS
PANTHERS
I'm a stubborn homer picking the Panthers week after week. I keep thinking they will look at the NFC South standings and realize they can win the division with 3 or 4 more wins. So I'm hopeful, if not confident, they can rise up against the Vikes.
SAINTS at STEELERS
Line: Steelers by 3 1/2
Vs Spread: 76.1% of you picked the STEELERS
Straight-Up: 88.7% of you picked the STEELERS
STEELERS
STEELERS
I'm going to stop picking the Saints. They used to be money at home. Not so this year. The AFC North has owned the NFC South this season and I expect more of the same here.
RAIDERS at RAMS
Line: Rams by 6 1/2
Vs Spread: 76.6% of you picked the RAMS
Straight-Up: 93.9% of you picked the RAMS
RAIDERS
RAIDERS
The Rams have been very competitive this season but it's still a stretch to favor them by a touchdown over anybody. The Raiders should get some momentum from their upset of the Chiefs last week (along with the extra rest). They have a great chance to make it 2 in a row.
BENGALS at BUCCANEERS
Line: Bengals by 3 1/2
Vs Spread: 86.7% of you picked the BENGALS
Straight-Up: 94.6% of you picked the BENGALS
BENGALS
BENGALS
What did I say earlier about the AFC North vs NFC South? Yeah, same logic applies here. The Bengals have posted two good W's in a row as they enter the stretch run.
CARDINALS at FALCONS
Line: Cardinals by 2 1/2
Vs Spread: 81% of you picked the CARDINALS
Straight-Up: 88.6% of you picked the CARDINALS
CARDINALS
CARDINALS
I realize the Cardinals lost last week and lost their QB the week before that, but they are still a league best 9-2 going up against an NFC South team. This is a short line for them to cover and Arizona is my Lock of the Week.
PATRIOTS at PACKERS
Line: Packers by 2 1/2
Vs Spread: 51.2% of you picked the PACKERS
Straight-Up: 59.1% of you picked the PACKERS
PATRIOTS
PATRIOTS
Both teams have been on fire, but I trust the Patriots run a little more. They've also won many different ways. Taking the Patriots as underdogs is usually a good pick.
BRONCOS at CHIEFS
Line: Broncos by 1 1/2
Vs Spread: 68.2% of you picked the BRONCOS
Straight-Up: 71.7% of you picked the BRONCOS
CHIEFS
CHIEFS
Kansas City got caught looking ahead a little bit in losing to the winless Raiders. Now they come back home -- where they can be dominant (see the Patriots game earlier this season) -- and face a Broncos team that has really lost its invincibility in the last few weeks with 2 losses and a very tough victory last week.
DOLPHINS at JETS
Line: Dolphins by 5 1/2
Vs Spread: 83.5% of you picked the DOLPHINS
Straight-Up: 94.2% of you picked the DOLPHINS
DOLPHINS
DOLPHINS
Miami may have cooled off a bit with the close loss to the Broncos, but they still played very well -- especially Tanneyhill at QB. Meanwhile, the Jets are back to being a disaster and starting Geno Smith at QB.

Good luck with your own picks this week!
