NFL Week 13 Free Picks

Our nationally recognized team of expert nfl handicappers, the Spread Experts are back with their predictions for week 13 of the NFL. Handicappers Bill Young, John Martin and Larry Cook give you their three best bets for this week.

Bill Young

Take San Diego Chargers -5.5

The Chargers have serious revenge on their minds after losing to the Chiefs at home earlier this season. San Diego plays a much weaker Chiefs’ team than they played back in September. They are without star running back Larry Johnson and without a healthy quarterback. The Chargers finally performed up to the level they should have been all season with a 32-14 thumping of Baltimore last week. The Chiefs lost to the Raiders at home just as I predicted, and now they will suffer back-to-back losses and an end to any playoff hopes they may have had. The Chiefs are just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. The Chargers are 30-15 ATS in their last 45 games against poor offensive teams scoring less than 17 points a game. San Diego is too explosive for the Chiefs to keep it close Sunday. More from Bill

John Martin

Take NY Giants -1.5

The Bears are now without starting running back Cedric Benson just as he started to get things turned in the right direction. Chicago won their last game against the Broncos on the square shoulders of Devin Hester and his pair of return touchdowns. You think the Giants will be kicking the ball to Hester this week? There is no chance in hell this happens as New York will make the Bears try and beat them fair and square. The Giants will be playing with a little extra hunger after their loss to the Vikings last week. The Giants don’t mind going on the road this season with a 3-1 record and their only loss to the Cowboys, a superior team. The road team is 7-0 in the last 7 meetings between the Bears and Giants. This trend will stay true to its form as a better Giants’ squad beats up on the Bears in Chicago Sunday. More from John

Larry Cook

Take San Francisco 49ers +3

The 49ers have new life after beating the Arizona Cardinals in a thriller last week. They finally got back to their bread and butter with pounding the ball with Frank Gore and using play-action to set up big plays down the field. Look for more of the same this week against the banged-up Carolina Panthers. The Panthers have dropped 5 consecutive games after an embarrassing 31-6 loss to New Orleans last week. Ever since Jake Delhomme went down with an injury as their starting QB, this team just hasn’t been the same. Their defense suffers from being on the field too much with the offense’s inability to move the ball. The Panthers are just 2-10 ATS in home games the last 2 seasons. The 49ers are 13-2 ATS coming off 3 consecutive games against division opponents. More from Larry
