Now, let’s get to the Week 13 NFL picks from your very own, Bahama Dom.
Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans (1:00pm ET)
It was a headline filled week in Houston with WR Will Fuller and CB Bradley Roby testing positive for PED’s after the Thanksgiving day win. It definitely will put a damper losing two of your playmakers on both sides of the ball especially with not much to play for at this point of the season. Indianapolis will be playing with a chip on their shoulder especially after the trouncing they received by the Titans.
I like the under in this divisional matchup. The Colts are getting back DeForest Buckner after his case from Covid, who is a dominant force on the line. I see the Colts having a resurgence on defense and the Texans have played well of late on the defensive side of the ball.
Pick: Under 51 points (-110 William Hill) | 2 units
Washington Football Team at Pittsburgh Steelers (5:00pm ET – Monday Night)
Washington and Ron Rivera have done a great job this season for what they have on the roster. Antonio Gibson has found paydirt 11 times this season, and is coming off the best game of his young career. Pittsburgh had a very strange week by playing on a Wednesday. It is going to be a short week for them and after the sloppy matchup with the Ravens, Mike Tomlin will have the troops ready.
The Steelers will have a dominant performance in them getting after Alex Smith. Even after losing Bud Dupree they have veteran leadership and will be ready. I see them winning by 10, with Diontae Johnson leading the way for the Pittsburg receiving corps. I’m taking the Steelers.
Pick: Steelers -7 (-105 William Hill) | 2 units
Buffalo Bills at San Francisco 49ers (8:15pm ET – Monday Night)
The 49ers are being forced to pack up and start a road show. They will be playing in Arizona for the time being due to this outrageous season we are having. The last time the Bills played in Arizona they lost on the miraculous “Hail Murray” play. I think this plays into the Niners bid to go on a late run to backdoor into the post season.
The Niners defense will always give them a shot, the unit is one of the best in the league. Buffalo’s defense on the other hand has been playing better of late. The ball hawking defense is going to make it difficult for Nick Mullens. Josh Allen’s sneaky athleticism will help against SF and they win as a slight under dog.
Pick: Bills +1 (-110 William Hill) | 1 unit
