2016 NFL Picks Against the Spread (ATS) - Week 13

Since we began, all of our handicappers have made exactly three picks each week. No more, no less. By limiting our picks to three per week, the goal was to narrow down our picks to only those we thought were quality plays.

Starting in 2014, we have switched to a new format allowing each handicapper to make between two to five picks versus the spread each week. In addition, we will use units to better designate each handicapper's confidence in their picks ranging from one to five units.

For tracking purposes, we have tracked (and will track) both wins/losses and units (+/-) against the spread throughout the season.

Lions +6 over Saints (5 Units), Over 53.5 (5 Units)

The Saints are great at home, and score a ton of points in the dome. The Lions have one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL, so I expect Drew Brees and the Saints offense to eat. I think the Lions can keep pace with them as ...

2011: 33-14-4 (70.2%)

Giants +6 over Steelers (3 Units)

The Giants have rebounded from a three-game losing streak to win their past six games. Granted, their level of competition has been low (Browns, Bears, Rams, etc.) during that winning streak, but Eli Manning has thrown ...

Chiefs +5.5 over Falcons (3 Units)

The Chiefs are coming off an impressive come-from-behind victory in Denver last week and have set themselves up for a playoff run. They'll need to continue playing well down the stretch, and with Jeremy Maclin ruled out, we should ...

Falcons -5.5 over Chiefs (3 Units)

This week, the Chiefs have another massive road test flying out to the East coast to take on the Atlanta Falcons in the Georgia Dome. The Chiefs are coming off a big emotional divisional game against the defending ...
