Week 13 NFL Picks Against the Point Spread http://xnsports.com/2016/12/01/week-13-nfl-picks-against-the-point-spread/ http://xnsports.com/2016/12/01/week-13-nfl-picks-against-the-point-spread/#respond Thu, 01 Dec 2016 18:15:38 +0000 http://xnsports.com/?p=65988 Now, it gets tricky. Despite our best statistical week against the spread of the season – based on differing websites, this ranged anywhere from 10-5-1 to 12-4 – Week 12 surprisingly did little to establish a trend or direction.

There does appear to exist a common thread throughout the matchups, as we could be in store for a high number of close games and

There are bad weeks. There are bad months. But it is maddening to see that an entire season just refuses to play by the rules. This is nothing new, as we have basically written this same introduction a number of times over the past few months, but it is bordering on

Indeed, the teams are not necessarily enacting revenge on their opponents, but rather release their frustration on the unwitting franchise unlucky enough to be on the receiving end. Specifically, a few of the best fantasy options of the

In one fell swoop, the rug was pulled from under the feet of the entire football-watching world. Only, unlike previous weeks, there were more feet standing on the rug. More feet to be tripped. Coincidence? Of course not. For the entire season, we have preached about the false positives that the 2016

It is make-or-break time. Entering Week 9, the Falcons, Cowboys, Saints, and Chargers were arguably the easiest teams to target for potential wins – given their matchups and recent history. All four teams won and covered their spreads. There were no letdowns. Not one. Easy picks. Easy

As the scales tilt towards the back-end of the schedule, we also see a less balanced slate of games than we received, last week. There are a handful of potentially one-sided contests, which sets up
