Week 13 of the 2012 NFL season promises to be an interesting week for football gambling. With plenty of divisional games with playoff implications, a smart fan can clean up by making the correct football gambling picks.
SPREAD OF THE WEEK
MIAMI (-7.5) vs. New England. This game has all the makings of a trap game for the Patriots, coming off a Thursday game and looking ahead to a big Monday night showdown with the Texans in Week 14. New England should be worried about a Miami team that has looked surprisingly decent, including a win over Seattle last weekend. Now, there’s very little chance of Miami winning the game, but they should put forth a decent showing as they try to keep their playoff hopes alive.
MONEY LINE OF THE WEEK
Jacksonville (+210) vs. BUFFALO. Don’t look now, but the Jaguars might actually have a quarterback worth watching. Chad Henne has been great in his two games under center for Jacksonville, and he doesn’t exactly face a tough matchup in Buffalo. The Bills have a great running game, but the Jaguars did hold Chris Johnson relatively in check last weekend. If they can shut down CJ Spiller and Fred Jackson, Henne should be able to do enough to win the game and send some football gambling winnings your way.
OVER/UNDER OF THE WEEK
Arizona at NY JETS (Over 36). Make no mistake about it, both of these teams are absolutely atrocious. But the Jets do tend to score points in bunches, and if they have any pride, they’ll come out firing after the Thanksgiving night debacle against New England. Meanwhile, if Cardinals rookie QB Ryan Lindley can’t get going against the Jets, he can’t get it going against anybody. While the game should be a disaster, there should be enough sloppy plays on defense for both teams to score some points.
