NFL Week 13 Betting: Pittsburgh Steelers @ Baltimore Ravens Pick and Prediction

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Baltimore Ravens

Two longtime rivals from the AFC North will get together on Sunday in Baltimore. The Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens will play a re-match of the Week 11 game where the Ravens won. In the last game, the Steelers started with a rushing touchdown from back-up Byron Leftwich, but never again got into the end zone. Baltimore leads the division with a 9-2 record. A win in this game would pretty much luck up another divisional title. Baltimore used all 60 minutes, plus overtime to down the San Diego Chargers last week. Pittsburgh is 6-5 and tied with the Bengals for the final wildcard in the AFC. The Steelers have lost two straight games; to Baltimore and Cleveland.

Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens have continued to impress the rest of the NFL with their nearly 350 yards per game offensively. Joining Flacco in the offense is Ray Rice, with 794 yards and 7 touchdowns, along with Torrey Smith, also with 7 touchdowns. While the Ravens defense has struggled this season with injuries, they continue to win games; winning four straight games. Baltimore has outscored foes 283-219 on the season.

It appears Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will not play in this game. Big Ben did not play in the last game either. The quarterback has in replaced by Byron Leftwich and Charlie Batch. Pittsburgh has been the best team against the run pass this season allowing teams to pass for just 165.7 yards per game. The Steelers have both Mike Wallace and Heath Miller that have caught six touchdown passes on the season.

Free Prediction and Pick

The Baltimore Ravens would love to win to wrap up the AFC North this early in the season. This is a big rivalry game, so expect both teams to be ready to play. In the end, the Steelers have way too many injuries to withstand all of them. Pittsburgh has a tough time scoring points, and that will continue against a hungry Ravens team. We like the Ravens to win this game.

Prediction: Baltimore Ravens 24-14

The Ravens are nearly a touchdown favorite in this game over their rival. The Steelers defense will keep them in the game for quite a while, but in the end they will bend a bit. Baltimore will be able to score a few touchdowns, while the Steelers will have a tough time getting it into the end zone. We like the Baltimore Ravens to cover the spread, at home over the Steelers.

Pick: Baltimore Ravens -6.5


NFL Week 13 Betting: New York Giants @ Washington Redskins Pick and Prediction

In a battle of NFC East rivals, the New York Giants will take on the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football. The Giants are the defending Super Bowl Champions. New York leads the division again, with a 7-4 record overall. Washington has won two straight games, including a Thanksgiving Day win over the Cowboys. The Redskins have moved to within two games of the Giants for the divisional lead, and just a game back of the wildcard spot in the NFC. New York, after losing two straight games blew out the Green Bay Packers in Week 12 on Sunday Night. The Giants beat the Redskins back on October 21st in New York.

The New York Giants seem to have gotten their “swag” back after the big win over the Packers last week. Many were worried heading into the bye week about their two game losing streak. The Giants quarterback Eli Manning has tossed for just shy of 3,000 yards and 15 touchdowns. Andrew Brown has been big for New York in the running game, leading the team with 8 touchdowns. The Giants’ Victor Cruz has caught 63 passes for 779 yards and 8 touchdowns on the season.

The Washington Redskins know that with a win in this game, they will not only be in business within the division, but also within the wildcard. Washington has won two in a row, and been led heavily by highly touted quarterback Robert Griffin III. The Redskins quarterback has thrown for 2,497 yards and 16 touchdowns, while rushing for an additional 642. Washington is the top rushing team in all of the NFL with 163.5 yards per game.

Free Prediction and Pick

This should be a really good football game. The Giants know that with a win they have a chance to really put some distance between them and the division. Tom Coughlin will have his team ready to play. Do not underestimate Mike Shanahan and the Redskins though. They will be good to go, and are coming off two big wins. In the end, we expect the more veteran group to come away with the win. We are betting the New York Giants by a field goal.

Prediction: New York Giants 27-24

The Giants come into the game as just under a field goal favorite in the game. We look for New York to score points early, and then cruise for a while, only to let Washington get back into the end. After that, the Giants defense will take over, and the quarterback – Eli Manning will guide his team down the field enough for the win. We are betting the New York Giants -2.5.

Pick: New York Giants -2.5


NFL Week 12 Betting: Green Bay Packers @ New York Giants Pick and Prediction

What a huge game this will be! The Green Bay Packers will travel to New York to take on the defending Super Bowl Champion Giants. The Packers and Giants are both leading their divisions, and both coming off a trip to the postseason. This game features the past two Super Bowl champions. The Packers are coming off a win over the Detroit Lions, and are in a tie for first place in the NFC North. The Giants did not play last week, and are looking to snap their two game losing streak. New York is a single game ahead of Dallas in the NFC East.

The New York Giants hope that their bye week has them ready to go in this big game. A loss, and a Dallas win would put those two teams in a tie for the NFC East lead. The Giants Eli Manning has has a pretty solid season with over 2,600 passing yards, but struggled in the last two losses. New York’s running game has been better than last season, but still struggled through much of the season. The Giants top running back is Ahmad Bradshaw, with four touchdowns. New York has lost two home games; to Dallas and Pittsburgh.

The Green Bay Packers are seeking their sixth straight win. The Packers last loss came on October 7th at the Indianapolis Colts. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers continues to take over the offense for Green Bay with over 2,600 yards and 27 touchdowns. The top receivers for Green Bay have been Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. A big blow for Green Bay in this game is their best defensive player Clay Matthews is not expected to play, due to injury.

The Green Bay Packers are going to go on the road and win this game. This could be a playoff preview, and the Packers are rounding into postseason form. Look for the Packers offense to be too much for the Giants defense in this game. Eli Manning and the offense will not be able to keep up, and Green Bay wins.

Prediction: Green Bay Packers 31-27

The Green Bay Packers are underdogs in this game. It’s never a great idea for such a talented team to be underdogs. While the Packers are banged up a little bit, the amount of talent they have on their team will come out in this one. We like the Green Bay Packers to cover the +2.5 in this game.

Pick: Green Bay Packers +2.5
