If the computer is correct, betting every road team to cover the spread in Week 13 will produce a 12-2 ATS (in 14 games where there was a spread as of midweek).
That’s right. Don’t bother handicapping the games, don’t even check the point spread. After the Falcons cover Thursday night at home, only the Bears will cover as a home team the rest of the way.
Sound crazy? Maybe. But Houston and New England are seemingly locks to cover and the Jaguars are 6-0 ATS in their past six road games. The computer says they will lose 17-13 in Buffalo, but cover the 7-point spread.

The Giants can easily beat the Redskins on Monday night and coming off their Week 12 demolition of Green Bay, Washington could get the wrecking ball Monday. And the Eagles, the stumbling, injury-racked Eagles, are predicted to lose 20-13 in Dallas Sunday, but that would cover 10.5 points.
So after an 8-4 SU week that saw the prediction computer stumble to a 4-7-1 ATS mark, the picks engine is primed for a rebound in Week 13.
Four games remained off the board last week due to injury concerns, so the computer made picks on only 12 games. This week, two games remained off the board as of midweek, meaning we have predictions on 14 games.
The week will start with a 33-26 Atlanta home win over New Orleans where the Falcons will cover the 3.5-point spread.
It will end with a 32-26 Giants win on Monday Night. Check out all the other Week 13 computer picks sandwiched in between. (Opening lines courtesy of BetOnline.)
