Full list of Week 13 straight-up picks with confidence levels

The NFL returns for Week 13 and we’ve got a look at who we think will win each game taking place this week, and at what level of confidence.

The NFL is back for Week 13 with an altered schedule as we head into the playoff home stretch. There’s no Thursday Night Football due to Covid-19 delays in Week 12, and now we get two games on Monday and one on Tuesday. Just like we expected!

It’s time once again to start picking winners. Each Thursday, I put together a list of straight up picks for the weekly schedule. I’ll have picks against the spread over the weekend, but this is a chance to just pick winners and losers. This year though, I’ve changed up the approach. Instead of simply picking winners and losers, I’m also grouping the picks by confidence — high confidence, medium confidence, low confidence, no confidence.

I had a solid performance last week, going 12-4. Below I’ve posted all my picks, with my record in that confidence level in parenthesis.

High confidence (39-8)

Vikings over Jaguars
Steelers over Washington
Seahawks over Giants
Packers over Eagles

Medium confidence (40-19)

Titans over Browns
Dolphins over Bengals
Colts over Texans
Raiders over Jets
Chiefs over Broncos
Ravens over Cowboys (pending Lamar Jackson news)

Low confidence (18-23)

Bears over Lions
Cardinals over Rams

No confidence (15-9)

Falcons over Saints
Chargers over Patriots
49ers over Bills
