NFL Week 13 OddsShark Computer Picks

The Seattle Seahawks continue to earn their mantle of a second-half team, as they have gone 4-1 in their last five games and have started to look like the Seahawks we are used to seeing the past several seasons. Though Seattle has a tough task this week against the Minnesota Vikings, the OddsShark Super Computer thinks the Seahawks win a tight contest with a projected score of 22.5-22.2.

The Seahawks had a scoring differential of -1 through their first five games, but have outscored opponents by a combined 43 points in their past five. The rushing game has been making a noticeable impact for the Seahawks with the team rushing for a combined 759 yards and five touchdowns in the past five games.

The Vikings have struggled to stop the run this season as they rank a middling 20th in rushing yards allowed per game. Minnesota uses their defensive lineman to eat up blockers and let their linebackers make tackles, but they may need to generate more penetration this weekend.

Raiders and Chiefs Battling for Playoff Spot

The Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs are both in the AFC Wild Card hunt and a loss this weekend could be a huge blow to either team. The OddsShark Super Computer is expecting a close game, with the Raiders squeaking out a projected 24-22 victory over the Chiefs.

If the Raiders want to win this game they will need to tighten up their rushing defense. Oakland is allowing 108.3 yards per game on the ground this season and they will be facing off against a Chiefs offense that has tallied 761 yards and 10 touchdowns on the ground during their five-game winning streak.

Derek Carr continues to look like a future star for the Raiders as he has thrown 16 touchdowns and just three interceptions in his past six games.

The Panthers Are Projected To Go 12-0

And then there was one. The Carolina Panthers are the lone undefeated team remaining in the NFL and the OddsShark Super Computer is expecting that to last at least one more week. The Panthers are projected to defeat the New Orleans Saints 29.2-19.4.

These two teams met in Week 3 this season and it was the Cam Newton show. Newton threw for two touchdowns while adding another with his feet in that game. And if anything, Newton has probably gotten better with the MVP-hopeful tallying a combined eight touchdowns and no turnovers in the past three games.

The Saints are on a three-game skid with their once highly touted offense failing them. New Orleans has averaged a mere 16 points per game while surrendering five turnovers in the past three games.
