Week 13 in the NFL closes out the month of November and welcomes in December to kick off the final push towards the playoffs. Two teams at the front of the pack in the NFC are the New Orleans Saints and the Los Angeles Rams at 10-1 with the surprising 8-3 Chicago Bears in the mix.
The 9-2 Kansas City Chiefs have the inside track to the top seed in the AFC with the New England Patriots and Houston Texans in the mix at 8-3 followed by the 7-3-1 Pittsburgh Steelers. The rest of the playoff picture in each conference still has quite a bit of detail to be filled in over the remaining five weeks of the season.
When it comes to the best money makers in the league at BetAnySports online sportsbook, the Saints are still the hottest team on the board at 9-2 against the spread. You could have made a small fortune riding this team’s nine-game winning streak ATS as part of its current 10-game winning streak straight-up.
New Orleans has been decimating teams lately with five consecutive victories by double figures. The Saints have been opened as 7.5-point road favorites for this Thursday night’s road game against the 6-5 (SU and ATS) Dallas Cowboys, who actually have a share of the lead with Washington in watered-down NFC East. The Cowboys have won their last three games both SU and ATS. The total line for this NFC tilt has been set at 53 points.
The next hottest betting team has been Chicago in the midst of a five-game winning streak both SU and ATS. The Bears are a game and a half ahead of Minnesota in the NFC North heading into Sunday’s game against the 3-8 New York Giants. That NFC clash is still “off the board” at BetAnySports pending the playing status of Bears’ quarterback Mitch Trubisky, who missed last Thursday’s game against Detroit.
Give credit to Houston for extending its current SU winning streak to eight games with Monday night’s 34-17 victory against Tennessee to create some breathing room atop the AFC South. After failing to cover in five of their first six games this season hindered by a 0-3 start, the Texans have posted a profitable 4-1 record ATS in their last five games.
Going against the New York Jets over their past five games has been a winning proposition. They join the Oakland Raiders and the Philadelphia Eagles at 3-8 ATS overall.
