The 2017 online NFL betting season continues this week with a plethora of matchups that are bound to play a hand in determining this year’s playoff landscape. But we’re not looking over 2017 playoff predictions here; instead we’re mulching over the best sportsbook online options for players betting on the spread this weekend. There are only a few weeks left before the playoffs roll around so players need to place as many sportsbook bets as humanly possible in the next coming weeks. Here are your best spread betting options for Week 13 of the 2017 NFL betting season.
New England Patriots vs. Buffalo Bills
The 9-2 Patriots look to travel to Buffalo and take on their 6-5 AFC East rivals. Considering that New England comes into this game riding a 7-game winning streak, there’s not too many people doubting New England’s chances in this game. NFL gambling sites are giving New England an 8 point spread line and the Pats shouldn’t have too hard of a time doing so. The Pats are averaging 29.5 points while the Bills are putting up 20.4 themselves. And considering that New England is 4-1 against the spread on the road this season, while the Bills are 5-4-2 ATS this season, betting on the Patriots on the spread not only lets you cash in on a much more lucrative payout on the spread, it also lets you make one of the surest predictions on this weekend’s action.
Kansas City Chiefs vs. New York Jets
The 4-7 New York Jets will host the 6-5 Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday. Kansas City was widely considered to be the best team in the league, or at least in the AFC, through the first half of the season. But since that praiseworthy start, the Chiefs have all but fallen off the face of the earth. Which is no understatement since Kansas City has lost 5 out of their last 6. And that includes losses against the Dallas Cowboys, the New York Giants and the Buffalo Bills – so they haven’t exactly gotten beat by the best teams around. The question the best sportsbook online bettors should ask themselves is just how long will the blues continue to play in Kansas City? If you think one more week: then you should take the upset bet on New York straight up. If you think the Chiefs can finally overcome their slump: take Kansas City on the spread.
Los Angeles Rams vs. Arizona Cardinals
The 8-3 Los Angeles Rams will make the journey to Arizona this weekend in order to solidify their position at the top of the NFC West by picking up a win over their divisional rivals. Los Angeles is coming off a 26-20 triumph over the New Orleans Saints that once again proved this team is going to the playoffs in 2017. However, the Cards are coming off a big time win themselves since they delivered a crushing 27-24 upset over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Los Angeles is pegged as the favorite and will have to cover a 7 point spread. The Rams are 7-4 against the spread on the year while Arizona is 3-7-1 ATS themselves.
New York Giants vs. Oakland Raiders
This line might not seem as obvious at first glance but considering the latest NFL news, that Ben McAdoo and the Giants’ organization have decided to bench Manning in favor of Geno Smith – a man with a 72.3 passer rating. For some reason, New York has convinced themselves that Smith gives them a better opportunity to win football games than the man who beat Tom Brady twice. With Smith under center, the Raiders won’t have any problems covering the 7 point spread prediction this Sunday.
