2009 NFL Point Spread Picks Week 13

Pick 1: New Orleans -9.5 incorrect NFL point spread pick -$120
Pick 2: Indianapolis -7 correct NFL point spread pick + $109.09
Pick 3: Denver -5 correct NFL point spread pick + $109.09

Slowly getting out of the pickle with NFLpickles. 7-1 the last two weeks and I'm as confident as always in these week's picks. New Orleans has not demonstrated convincing wins on the road against weak teams (hence the underestimation of this 11-0 team), but after last week's performance how could one ignore this pick? I love betting with Indi. This team never gives up; positive attitudes, hard work, and discipline are components of an 11-0 team that I like to see. 7 points at home? I'm all over this. Finally, Denver is being underrated by much in this game. Orton and the gang are coming back to the shape they were in the early weeks, and a beaten down KC will lose by much more than 5 points.

As for bankroll, we'll continue our conservative 22% approach and distribute them equally to each pick. That is, each pick will receive $120. Sorry for the brief report this week, my wife is starting to have contractions and I may be a father once again soon. Good luck!

Without further ado, here are the NFLpickles free point spread estimates for Week 13 of 2009.

I think Denver is the favorite, but I agree with you.

NO -9.5 (best bet)
SD -13 (best bet)
OAK +14
DEN -4.5
TB +6.5
CIN -13

STL +9.5
MIN -4

STL +9.5 and Min -4 are non-bets, but are included on Project Pointspread and Covers League champions.

Happy, I agree with your STL and CIN pick. TB is a no-play and is Ben Roethlisberger playing?
HappyBreathNet said…
I don't know if Ben is playing or not. Same with Warner. I think that explains why Project Pointspread didn't have lines on those games (I couldn't figure out why it didn't).

FYI, it is spelled "ado", as you use it here. "Adieu" means goodbye in French.
