Week 13 NFL Picks Against the Spread (Hanson)

Every week, four of our contributors pick between two and five games each and assign a number of units (one to five) to their selection based on their confidence in the pick.

With that said, here are my Week 13 NFL picks against the spread:

Seattle Seahawks +5 over Philadelphia Eagles (3 units)

The only 10-win team so far this season, the Eagles go into Seattle as road favorites on Sunday Night Football. The Seahawks have injuries on the defensive side, especially in the secondary, and Carson Wentz is having an MVP-caliber season as a sophomore. Even so, it's tough to go into Century Link Field and leave with a win. So, I'll take Russell Wilson, the Seahawks and points.

Patriots vs. Bills, Over 48.5 (3 units)

Before bouncing back to beat the Chiefs on the road, the Bills had surrendered more than 100 total points in back-to-back games against the Saints and Chargers. So, it wouldn't be surprising if Tom Brady and the Patriots single-handedly went over the 48.5 total this week. Well, I don't expect them to do that, but I think there is a good chance that they put up 30-plus points and do their part. Even though the Patriots have turned their defense around, these two teams have averaged 53.45 combined points per game over their past 11 matchups.
