Welcome back for Week 13 of the 2020 NFL season. Covid-19 shook up last week’s schedule and as a result we did not have Thursday Night Football this week. Additionally, we now get a double-header of Monday Night Football and Cowboys-Ravens will take place on Tuesday. Quite the football season!
Last week was a bit of a bounce-back for me after a recent ugly run, going 10-6 with my picks and 3-2 with my five best bets of the weekend. It improves me to 81-94-2 on total picks and 30-29 on my best bets. A year ago, I went 131-117-4, finishing with a 52.78 win percentage. That’s barely turning a profit, but for a season’s worth of picks, that’s not too bad. I did not track my best bet percentage over the course of the season, but will make sure to do that this year.
I’m going to pick my five “best bets” each week, similar to what you might use in the DraftKings Pro Football Pick ‘Em National Championship. Lines are moving so some of the lines below will be different from what you see on game day. Look for value where you can!
In the meantime, here are my five picks of choice for this weekend:
