After sorting out some schedule drawbacks, the NFL Week 13 program will begin on Dec, 6, and end on the 8th. Hopefully COVID-19 doesn’t provoke more rescheduling.
NFL Week 13 Matchups Overview
With no Thursday Night game, we are going to have 12 games on Sunday, two on Monday Night and one on Tuesday Night.
On Sunday there’s two games between teams with winning records: Cleveland Browns (8-3) vs Tennessee Titans (8-3) and Los Angeles Rams (7-4) vs Arizona Cardinals (6-5).
The winless New York Jets (0-11) will play host to the Las Vegas Raiders (6-5) and the unbeaten Pittsburgh Steelers (11-0) will face the Washington Football Team (4-7) at Heinz Field.
NFL Games of the Week
Nick Chubb (719 YDS, 6 TD) vs Derrick Henry (1257 YDS, 12 TD). That’s the individual matchup that Browns vs Titans offers us on Sunday.
After playing without a proper quarterback in Week 12, the Denver Broncos (4-7) hope to have one of their QB’s ready to face Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs (10-1) on Sunday Night.
On Monday afternoon, the Steelers will play host to Washington, and three hours later the Buffalo Bills (8-3) will visit the San Francisco 49ers (5-6) in Arizona.
Last but not least, the Dallas Cowboys (3-8) will face the Baltimore Ravens (6-4) on Tuesday Night.
Without further ado, here are our BetUS Games of the Week for Week 13 of the 2020 NFL Season. All game preview odds are as of writing.
Tennessee Titans (-3)December 6, 1:00 pm ET
For some reason, few people seem to care that the Cleveland Browns are 8-3. Baker Mayfield hasn’t been very good, but the backfield tandem of Nick Chubb and Kareen Hunt have.
They finished Week 12 (against the Jacksonville Jaguars) with 206 rushing yards combined. Chubb added a rushing touchdown and 32 yards through the air.
The Browns hope to activate DE Myles Garrett off the COVID-19 list. They need him to stop Henry.
Cleveland are 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games on the road.
The Tennessee Titans come from scoring 45 points against the Indianapolis Colts. Henry finished with 178 rushing yards and three touchdowns. Tennessee rushed the ball 45 times (six different players).
WR A.J. Brown has been sensational and the defense has improved just in time (allowed 24 points against the Ravens and 26 against the Colts).
The Titans are 11-4 SU in their last 15 games.

Kansas City Chiefs (-14)December 6, 8:20 pm ET
The Denver Broncos played Week 12 against the New Orleans Saints without a proper QB. Kendall Hinton (WR from the practice squad) completed one of nine attempts and the Broncos lost 31-3.
Drew Lock should be back to face the Kansas City Chiefs, but he has struggled. Melvin Gordon and Philip Lindsay should carry the load through the ground.
The Broncos are 0-10 SU in their last 10 games against the Chiefs.
Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs beat Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 27-24. Mahomes threw for 462 yards (269 to Tyreek Hill) and three touchdowns (all three to Hill).
The Chiefs are simply too much to handle offensively and they have improved defensively. Some experts consider them to be better than the unbeaten Pittsburgh Steelers.
Kansas City are 11-1 in their last 12 games at home. The Chiefs already beat the Broncos (Week 7) 43-16.
Washington Football Team
Pittsburgh Steelers (-9.5)November 26, 8:20 pm ET
The Washington Football Team (4-7) scored 41 points against the Dallas Cowboys (Week 12). Yes, the Cowboys’ defense is not the best, but Antonio Gibson finished with 115 rushing yards and three touchdowns, and that kind of performance could be the beginning of a great rest of the season.
Alex Smith has been reliable under center, and the Washington Football Team defense has been above average with rookie DE Chase Young leading the way.
Washington are 1-6 SU in their last seven games on the road.
Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers (11-0) remain undefeated after beating the Baltimore Ravens for the second time this season.
The Steelers’ offense is just too much to handle with Juju Smith-Schuster, Eric Ebron, Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool. RB James Conner should be back after missing the last game due to COVID-19.
Pittsburgh are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games played in Week 13.

Buffalo Bills (-3)
San Francisco 49ersDecember 7, 8:15 pm ET
Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills are very comfortable at the top of the AFC East. They come from a nice victory against Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers (27-17); Josh Allen scored through the ground once again (six total rushing touchdowns this season).
RB’s Davin Singletary and Zack Moss have been playing really well and the defense showed an improvement against the Chargers.
The Bills are 5-0 ATS in their last five games against an opponent from the NFC.
Nick Mullens and the San Francisco 49ers shocked the world with a victory against Aaron Donald and the Los Angeles Rams on Week 12.
The Niners have several starters out due to injury, including Jimmy Garoppolo, George Kittle and Nick Bosa, but they have been more than capable of competing.
RB Raheem Mostert is back (43 YDS, 1 TD against the Rams) and Deebo Samuel (11 REC, 133 YDS against the Rams) is establishing himself as the Niners’ No. 1 receiver.
San Francisco are 1-4 ATS in their last five games at home.

Dallas Cowboys (TBP)
Baltimore RavensDecember 8, 7:05 pm ET
The Dallas Cowboys (3-8) come from a tough loss against the Washington Football Team (Week 12) and they will be facing a Baltimore Ravens (6-5) team urged for a victory.
Andy Dalton will remain under center for Dallas, and he has plenty of weapons to throw to (Michael Gallup, Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb), but the Cowboys need RB Ezekiel Elliott to be the leader they were hoping for since Dak Prescott got injured.
The Cowboys are 7-1 ATS in their last eight games against an opponent from the AFC North.
With Robert Griffin III under center, the Baltimore Ravens (6-5) lost against the Pittsburgh Steelers (Week 12), but they fought until the end.
Lamar Jackson, Mark Andrews, Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins were out due to the COVID-19 outbreak in Baltimore, but all should be back and ready to go. Dez Bryant is officially back and he should benefit from Jackson’s return.
The Ravens are 13-6 in their last 19 games at home.

Las Vegas Raiders (-7½)
New York JetsDecember 6, 1:00 pm ET
After scoring 31 points against the Kansas City Chiefs (Week 11), Derek Carr and the Las Vegas Raiders scored just six points against the Atlanta Falcons (Week 12).
The Raiders are much better than that, but they need to be more consistent. Henry Ruggs needs to be more involved on offense and the defense can’t keep playing like that (allows 29 points per game).
Las Vegas are 0-6 SU in their last six games when playing on the road against the New York Jets.
The Jets lost, once again, 20-3 against the Miami Dolphins. Sam Darnold returned just to throw for 197 yards and two interceptions.
Frank Gore played one of his best games this season (74 rushing yards), but he can’t carry the load like he used to.
The Jets are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games and they are already thinking about next season.

Minnesota Vikings (-9½)December 6, 1:00 pm ET
Mike Glennon became the Jacksonville Jaguars’ starting QB against the Cleveland Browns (Week 12) and he played well (235 YDS, 2 TD), but that wasn’t enough, and the Jaguars remain winless since Week 2.
RB James Robinson (128 YDS, 1 TD against the Browns) has been the best news of 2020 for the Jaguars and WR Collin Johnson (96 YDS, 1 TD against the Browns) took advantage of his good chemistry with Glennon to become the No. 1 receiver.
The Jaguars are 3-6 ATS in their last nine games.
Kirk Cousins led the way with 307 yards and 3 touchdowns for the Minnesota Vikings to beat the Carolina Panthers 28-27 (Week 12).
Cousins has two straight games with 300+ yards and at least three touchdown passes. He has thrown at least two touchdown passes in the Vikings’ last four games.
Adam Thielen (out Week 12 due to COVID-19) should be back and don’t forget that the Vikings have the best RB in the league, according to Derrick Henry, in Dalvin Cook.
The Vikings are 7-2 in their last nine games against an opponent from the NFC South.

Miami Dolphins (-11)December 6, 1:00 pm ET
With rookie QB Joe Burrow out, the Cincinnati Bengals (2-8-1) didn’t turn to Ryan Finley. Brandon Allen was under center against the New York Giants (Week 12) and he played relatively well (136 YDS, 1 TD, 1 INT).
RB Joe Mixon remained sidelined. Veteran Giovani Bernard needs to be better and carry the team offensively.
The Bengals are 0-17-1 in their last 18 games on the road.
Ryan Fitzpatrick replaced the injured Tua Tagovailoa and the Miami Dolphins (7-4) beat the New York Jets 20-3. Now, HC Brian Flores has to decide between the veteran and the rookie.
The Dolphins have been playing well. The defense allows just 18.6 points per game (second best in the league) and DeVante Parker has been sensational as their No. 1 receiver.
Miami is 8-1 SU in their last nine games when playing at home against Cincinnati.

Indianapolis Colts (-3)
Houston TexansDecember 6, 1:00 pm ET
The Indianapolis Colts (7-4) come from a tough loss against the Tennessee Titans and they also lost the AFC South top spot.
Now, they have a pretty good chance to bounce back against a vulnerable Houston Texans defense. Philip Rivers finally connected with veteran T.Y. Hilton (81 YDS, 1 TD against the Titans) and rookie RB Jonathan Taylor should be back (was out due to COVID-19).
The Colts are 5-2 SU in their last seven games against the Texans.
Deshaun Watson and the Houston Texans (4-7) crushed the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving, but now they have lost their No. 1 receiver for the rest of the season.
Will Fuller announced that he had been suspended (six games) for PED violation. CB Bradley Roby got suspended for the same reason.
Now, Keke Coutee should be more involved and Brandin Cooks should be the Texans’ No. 1 receiver.
The Texans are 0-7-1 ATS in their last eight games when playing at home against the Colts.

Chicago BearsDecember 6, 1:00 pm ET
After losing against the Houston Texans (41-25) on Thanksgiving, the Detroit Lions (4-7) fired HC Matt Patricia and GM Bob Quinn. Former OC Darrell Bevell is going to be the interim HC for the rest of the season.
The Lions’ defense allows 29.8 points per game (second worst in the league) and Matthew Stafford talent is still wasted.
Star WR Kenny Golladay could be back, but the Lions need much more than that in order to become a contender. The Lions are 1-4 ATS in their last five games.
Mitchell Trubisky is back. The former No. 2 overall draft pick played under center against the Green Bay Packers (Week 12) and he finished with 242 yards, three touchdown passes and two interceptions.
RB David Montgomery ran for 103 yards and WR Allen Robinson scored two touchdowns. They are the Bears’ offensive spine.
Despite having allowed 41 points against the Packers, Chicago’s defense is better than average.
The Bears are 1-12 ATS in their last 13 games played in Week 13. Chicago already beat Detroit this season 27-23 (Week 1).

New Orleans Saints (-3)
Atlanta FalconsDecember 6, 1:00pm ET
The New Orleans Saints (9-2) are 2-0 with Taysom Hill under center. Yes, he’s not the best passer, but he has scored four rushing touchdowns in two games.
Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray have helped a lot and the defense hasn’t allowed more than 13 points in their last four games.
The Saints are 11-1 in their last 12 games on the road.
The Atlanta Falcons (4-7) crushed the Las Vegas Raiders 43-6 (Week 12) despite not having Julio Jones and Todd Gurley due to injury.
Ito Smith and Brian Hill took care of the backfield, while Calvin Ridley and Hayden Hurst took care of the receiving front. Atlanta also have the NFL’s top scorer in kicker Younghoe Koo.
The Falcons are 4-9 SU in their last 13 games at home. Atlanta already lost against New Orleans this season 24-9 (Week 11).

New York Giants
Seattle Seahawks (-10)December 6, 4:05 pm ET
The New York Giants (4-7) beat the Cincinnati Bengals 19-17 (Week 12), but QB Daniel Jones was injured. Colt McCoy replaced him, and he should be under center for the next couple of weeks.
The Giants have found some comfort in RB Wayne Gallman (94 YDS, 1 TD against the Bengals), who has been playing really well.
Evan Engram (129 YDS against the Bengals) has become the Giants’ No. 1 receiver.
The Giants are 8-1 ATS in their last nine games on the road.
Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks (8-3) are back at the top of the NFC West.
WR D.K. Metcalf has been sensational and he leads the league in receiving yards with 1039. Wilson is second regarding touchdown passes with 31.
The Seahawks are 5-1 in their last six games when playing at home against the New York Giants.

Los Angeles Rams (-3)
Arizona CardinalsDecember 6, 4:05 pm ET
This should be a great NFC West battle as both teams need the victory in order to remain close to the Seattle Seahawks.
The Los Angeles Rams (7-4) come from a tough divisional loss against the San Francisco 49ers (Week 12), but they remain as a very dangerous team.
Aaron Donald leads the league with ten sacks and their backfield has become tough to read because they have their own three-headed monster version with Cam Akers, Darrel Henderson and Malcolm Brown.
The Rams are 5-0-1 ATS in their last six games against Arizona.
Kyler Murray looked really bad against the New England Patriots (Week 12) because New England forced him to remain at the pocket. He needs to be better when he can’t run.
Veteran Larry Fitzgerald missed that game due to COVID-19 and the Cardinals really missed him.
Kenyan Drake has been playing better and he has established himself as their No. 1 running back.
The Cardinals are 2-7 in their last nine games played in December. The Rams lead the all-time series 43-38-2.

New England Patriots (pk-110)
Los Angeles ChargersNovember 29, 4:25 pm ET
The New England Patriots (5-6) beat the Arizona Cardinals (Week 12) despite Cam Newton having a terrible game (84 passing yards and two interceptions). That proves that Bill Belichick still has some tricks.
RB James White carried the load with two rushing touchdowns, and the defense managed to restrain Kyler Murray. They have to do the same with rookie Justin Herbert in order to have a chance.
The Patriots are 5-0 ATS in their last five games against the Chargers.
Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers are 3-8, but they are better than that.
They come from a tough loss against the Buffalo Bills (Week 12), but Herbert threw for 300+ yards once again.
Austin Ekeler is back, and that should take some pressure off from Herbert’s shoulders.
The Chargers are 1-4 SU in their last five games played in December.

Green Bay Packers (-9½)December 6, 4:25 pm ET
After losing against the Seattle Seahawks (Week 12), the Philadelphia Eagles (3-7-1) lost the NFC East top spot to the New York Giants and Washington Football Team (4-7).
Carson Wentz playing has been mediocre and the Eagles’ running game is pretty much nonexistent. Some experts believe that rookie QB Jalen Hurts should have an opportunity before the current season ends.
Alshon Jeffery is back, but Dallas Goedert has been the No. 1 receiver.
The Eagles are 1-4 ATS in their last five games on the road.
Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers (8-3) crushed the Chicago Bears (41-25) to remain at the top of the NFC North.
The Packers lead the league with 31.7 points per game and they will be facing a very vulnerable secondary.
Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes have become the favorites in the MVP race.
The Packers are 10-1 in their last 11 games at home.
