Welcome to Week 13, and more importantly, happy Thanksgiving! We get a tripleheader on turkey day, and while only one involves playoff implications for both teams, it should still provide an entertaining day. The holiday opens with Bears-Lions, follows with Bills-Cowboys, and closes with Saints-Falcons.
The playoff race is heating up across the league, and Week 13 provides some key matchups as teams look to firm up or save their playoff position. The Steelers host the Browns with the second wild card berth in play. The Seahawks host the Vikings in a matchup of the two NFC wild card teams, while the Texans host the Patriots with a first round bye in the mix. The 49ers travel to face the Ravens in a potential Super Bowl preview in what should be an overall fun Week 13.
As we head into Week 13, there will be plenty of information to consider in deciding how we want to wager on the various matchups. Julio Jones, Tyreek Hill, Carson Wentz, Golden Tate, and a host of other players are dealing with injuries that might not cost them the game, but could slow them to some degree.
We’re not going to bet on every single matchup on the card this week, but there are plenty of intriguing ones for us to consider. Our decisions will be influenced by injury news and depth chart changes, so we’re here to help you prepare for everything that will go down this week.
Check back for news updates as well as analysis and picks. We’ll have an odds rundown for each game and best bets to sufficiently prep you. Good luck with your wagering in Week 13!
