NFL Week 13 - Odds and Predictions from Bodog

Week 12 of the NFL season is done, and what a week it was! For those of you keeping score, it was the highest-scoring week in NFL history. Everywhere you looked, team were putting up 30+ points like it was nothing.

Of course, Week 13 is a whole new ballgame, so who knows what’s in store for us. Whatever the case, it’s not going to stop me from making my weekly picks.

Last week, I complied a solid 10-5 record picking against the line over at Bodog. That brings my season total to a respectable 71-60-2. If I can just keep my momentum going, I may have a really nice record by the end of the NFL season.


Before you place your bets, there are a few injury situations you might want to take note of.

Brian Westbrook (RB - Eagles) He’s going to try to play, but expect him to be hampered by a high-ankle sprain. This injury has played havoc with Westbrook’s numbers over the last month.

Steven Jackson (RB - Rams) He practiced some this week, but it’s still up in the air as to whether Jackson will play or not. Even if he does, expect the Rams runner to be less than 100%.

Reggie Bush (RB - Saints) Bush should make his return this week after missing four games with an injured knee. It might take a week or two for him to round into shape, but the Saints can afford to be patient - they scored 51 against the Packers on Monday Night Football.

Brady Quinn (QB - Browns) After trying to play through a broken finger, Quinn is out for the year. Derek Anderson will once again be the starter for the Browns.

Plaxico Burress (WR - Giants) Plaxico continues to struggle. The Giants, however, have been just fine without him.

Clinton Portis (RB - Redskins) Portis may be less than 100%, but expect him to play.

Willie Parker (RB - Steelers) Parker may miss another game due to injury, but Mewelde Moore will be a more than adequate replacement.


My predictions are in bold print. Odds are courtesy of Bodog.

Niners +6 ½ @ Bills -6 ½

Saints +4 @ Bucs -4

Panthers +3 @ Packers -3

Giants -4 @ Redskins +4

Ravens -7 @ Bengals +7

Broncos +8 @ Jets -8

Steelers +1 @ Patriots -1

Chiefs +3 @ Raiders -3
