NFL Week 13 Prop Bets | Best NFL Prop Predictions & Picks Today

After a short hiatus, we’re winning money again. Our prop bets from Week 12 finished 5-3 overall, which is becoming the norm around these parts.

I nailed the Colts-Bucs game, whiffed on Titans-Patriots, and split on the others. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – the weirder the NFL gets, the more I absolutely love it.

The Week 13 slate is particularly weird. Outside of a Monday Night Football Game between New England and Buffalo, which is delightful, the rest of the lineup is a mixed bag.

That’s a disclaimer essentially letting you know that one of the games below is, well, in need of some excitement.

With that, here are this week’s picks, and let’s start with that glorious disclaimer game.

NFL Week 13 Best Prop Bets

New York Giants at Miami Dolphins 

While the game might lack in star power, both teams do have some momentum. (Am I searching for anything here? Maybe!)

The Giants just beat the Eagles 13-7, and they’ve won two of the past three games. New York picked off Jalen Hurts three times. Hurts also completed fewer than 50 percent of his throws and passed for only 129 yards.

On the other side of the ball, QB Daniel Jones has been fine. Not spectacular. Just, fine. His availability is in question, however, due to a neck injury. That has swung the spread some.

Miami, meanwhile, has won four games in a row. It’s worth noting that three of those opponents included the Texans, Jets, and Panthers. The win over the Ravens was actually solid.

Tua Tagovailoa completed 27-of-31 throws last game, and rookie wideout Jaylen Waddle is blossoming into a star before our eyes.

It still feels like ultimately defense will likely be the story.

Jones playing or not won’t change this bet for me one way or another. The defenses should shine.

I’m doubling down on my first bet with a little first-half play. I still don’t trust the Dolphins’ offense, and I certainly don’t trust New York’s.

Los Angeles Chargers at Cincinnati Bengals

While I don’t believe points will be plentiful in the game above, this matchup is a different story. If you love watching young quarterbacks thrive, this is the one for you.

In a few years, Joe Burrow or Justin Herbert could wind up being the best QB in the sport. We’ll get there, although this game is certainly meaningful for both teams.

The Bengals just destroyed the Steelers. Burrow played well, although running back Joe Mixon, who is having a superb year, really was the star of the game. After two rough losses, Cincinnati has outscored its last two opponents, 73-23.

L.A. barely beat the Steelers two weeks ago in a thriller. That win was also sandwiched between losses to the Vikings three weeks ago and the Broncos last week. While his rushing yards have seen an uptick, Herbert’s overall performances have been a bit week-to-week.

Still, I expect the Chargers to be ready for this one.

Cincinnati’s offense seems to be flourishing, and playing at home should help keep this trend pointed in the right direction. Los Angeles should also do its part.

Herbert’s been hit or miss as a sophomore, although perhaps that is a bit harsh. I’m expecting these teams to trade TDs.

Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers

Well, Lamar Jackson has played better games. After throwing four interceptions against the Browns in Sunday Night Football, that much is an understatement.

Still, the Ravens ended up winning. It wasn’t pretty or easy, but a win is a win. Baltimore also limited Kareem Hunt and Nick Chubb (and Baker Mayfield) to 40 yards on 17 carries, which is exceptional.

The Steelers, as mentioned above, would like to erase what just happened against the Bengals. Ben Roethlisberger threw two picks. Najee Harris carried the ball only eight times. The defense was, well, awful.

But this game should be much more of a Pittsburgh game, and playing at home will also help a great deal. While many will likely sprint to back Baltimore, I am inclined to think that Mike Tomlin’s team finds a way to keep this close.

Pittsburgh Steelers +3 First Half (-110) at Betway

The Ravens aren’t exactly thriving, and Pittsburgh takes advantage at least for a half. This is a much different challenge than what last week brought.

New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills

Before the season began, I didn’t expect this game to be as compelling as it is. But given the Patriots’ superb recent play, one could easily argue this is one of the more intriguing games of the season.

New England has allowed more than 14 points just once in the last six games. To the surprise of no one, all of those games have been wins.

Mac Jones is coming off of one of the best starts of his young career against the Titans, and his life is made easier by the collective excellence around him.

For Buffalo, this feels like a moment. The Bills, thought to be a sizable chalk pick in the AFC East, are now in second place. A 9-6 loss to the Jaguars and a blowout loss to the Colts stand out over the past five weeks, although last Sunday’s dominating win over the Saints feels more like what we expected to see.

So, just what team will we get?

Buffalo Bills First to Score (-120) at Betway 

Wager: 1 Unit

I know the Pats are hot, but Josh Allen still exists, and we cannot forget that. Buffalo’s offense gets on the board first.

Buffalo Bills -1 First Half (-135) at Betway

Wager: 1 Unit

I’m still buying the Bills, and I think home field looms large. Look for Buffalo to get off to a hot start and the game to tighten up in the second half. (Buffalo still hangs on.)

NFL Betting News

  • Early money slightly leaning towards the over in the 49ers-Rams matchup

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting good two-way action on the over/under for the NFC Championship Game matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the over of 46 points has attracted 55% of the bets and 60% of the money thus far. Much moreso than the AFC Championship Game, the betting splits on the point spread and total in this game are much more evenly split, so the sportsbook does not have too much liability on either at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Los Angeles's -170 moneyline odds have attracted 60% of the bets and 70% of the money.

  • Early bettors give slight lean to the Rams over the 49ers

    Based on the betting splits at DraftKings Sportsbook, the favored Los Angeles Rams are getting slightly more betting attention in their matchup with the San Francisco 49ers.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, Los Angeles's -3.5 point spread has received 65% of the bets and 61% of the handle thus far. Bettors are clearly torn in this matchup considering the Rams have arguably been playing better football through the first two playoff games, while the 49ers have won six consecutive games against the Rams, including a thrilling Week 18 overtime victory in Los Angeles.

  • Early money more than 4/1 on the over in the Bengals-Chiefs matchup

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting one-sided betting action for Sunday's over/under in the matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the over of 54.5 points has attracted 75% of the bets and 85% of the money thus far. At this point, the sportsbook has big liability to the Chiefs point spread and the over in this matchup, as their most ideal scenario would be a Bengals cover in a low-scoring game at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Kansas City's -335 moneyline odds have attracted 58% of the bets and 61% of the money.

    CIN vs. KC Game Page

  • Early money 3/1 on the Chiefs over the Bengals

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting one-sided betting action for Sunday's matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs, as the majority of the action is backing the favored Chiefs.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, Kansas City's -7 point spread has received 61% of the bets and 76% of the handle thus far. Cincinnati is shaping up to be the biggest need of any side or any total this weekend, as the public seems to be enamored with the Chiefs after their thrilling Divisional Round win over Buffalo.

  • 49ers-Rams over/under reaches lowest number of the week

    After another line movement, the over/under for the NFC Championship matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams has reached its lowest total of the week.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the 49ers-Rams over/under on Sunday night was posted at 47.5 points. It was quickly bet down to 46.5 in less than 24 hours. However, it has once again moved toward the under, and now currently sits at 46 points. Given that there has not yet been buyback on the over, it is extremely unlikely we see the total get back to anywhere close to the 47.5 points it opened at.
