Week 13 in the NFL finds arguably the best slate of the season as five teams with better than .500 records will face off.
Through 12 weeks of the 2022 NFL season, underdogs continue to lead the way posting a 98-76-6 Against The Spread (56.3 percent) record.
Sharp bettors in Vegas continue to heavily invest in teaser wagers, looking to manipulate point spreads. On Sunday, we will follow their lead, backing four teams with playoff aspirations that own a combined record of 28-16 (.636) at odds of +200.
In this type of investment, bettors are afforded the opportunity to use several (two or more) teams combined into one “exotic bet”, shifting the line in your favor. There are three main NFL teaser offerings readily available at every sportsbook: 6, 6.5 and 7 points. The more points you use on the teaser the lower the payout will be, however the more teams you include in the teaser bet the higher the payout will be.
Jets +10 vs. Vikings
Mike White, who completed 78.6 percent of his passes for 315 yards and three touchdowns in his 2022 starting debut, will encounter Minnesota’s league-worst passing defense that has allowed 12 touchdown passes to opposing quarterbacks over the last six games. Gang Green’s defense, which ranks fourth in points allowed (17.8 ppg), has been lights out in its last three road games, surrendering only 9.7 points per game. The Jets, who are 6-2 against the spread (75 percent) in their last eight games, are 4-1 straight up and ATS away from MetLife Stadium this season. In the first leg of our ticket, we will push the Jets up to double-digit underdogs!
Seahawks -0.5 vs LA Rams
Seattle, who is 4-2 SU and ATS over their last six games, will face a Rams squad that has lost five consecutive games as well as seven of their last eight (1-7 SU). Los Angeles will be without quarterback Matthew Stafford (neck) again as well as defensive tackle Aaron Donald (ankle), while starting wide receivers Cooper Kupp (ankle) and Allen Robinson II (foot) are both on injured reserve and done for the season. Instead of having to lay more than a touchdown, in this wager we will bring the Seahawks down to only 0.5-point favorites.
In one of the best games of the Week 13 slate, we will target Tua Tagovailoa and the red-hot Dolphins that have won five consecutive games. Miami, who has scored 30-plus points in four straight games, will face a 49ers club that owns a four-game winning streak. In a game that will likely be a tightly contested battle, we will invest in the Dolphins staying within 11 points of San Francisco.
In the final leg of a ticket, we will target the showdown between the Chiefs and Bengals.
Kansas City despite winning five straight games, the Chiefs have burned bettors posting a 1-3-1 ATS mark. On the flip side, Joe Burrow and the Bengals have been the most lucrative team to invest in, posting an 8-1 ATS record over their last nine games. Instead of needing to stay within the small point spread being offered by oddsmakers (+1.5), we will drive the home team up through several prime numbers and be afforded more than a touchdown of points.
