Minty Bets, Jared Quay, and Pamela Maldonado give their best bets for Week 13 of the NFL season.
MINTY BETS: It's week 13 of the NFL. I'm Minty Bets here with Pam Maldonado and Jared Quay and we are here to give you our best bets for the week. Pam, let's start with you.
PAMELA MALDONADO: I'm liking the over, 49 and 1/2 for Washington Football Team at the Las Vegas Raiders. The Raiders, they're a passing offense. Washington Football Team and defense, 30th in passing yards allowed.
In fact, 74% of the yardage gained against Washington has come via the pass, the third highest rate in the league. And Washington, they are a run heavy offense. The Raiders defense, 25th against the run.
I do expect both teams to be able to get downfield and once they are there, both defenses, 28th in touchdowns allowed, 31st and 25th in points per play. The Raiders weakness is against tight ends and who just returned last week for Washington? Tight end in the Logan Thomas, who had six targets plus one touchdown.
Taylor Heinicke now has more targets to his disposal. Five touchdowns, one interception in his last three games after the bye. And the Raiders, they finally look like they got their groove back last week against Dallas. Derek Carr had 373 passing yards. 49 and 1/2 is too low for two capable offenses who are finding their groove at the right time.
MINTY BETS: I actually really like that pick and I'm going to play it kind of weird this week and I'm going with the total as well. I don't usually like to bet on totals, but I really like this one. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Atlanta Falcons, the total set at 50 and 1/2. Now, Tampa is a high powered offense and they're going up against an Atlanta defense who's giving up the second most points per game.
Now, I wouldn't count out the Falcons to score some points as well, I don't think points will be hard to come by here. I think this has the potential to be a shootout. This match-up has hit the over in seven straight games, so give me the over at 50 and 1/2. Jared, what do you have for us?
JARED QUAY: I'm not going over or under on any game, I'm just going on a straight winner. I love the Miami Dolphins minus 4 against the New York Giants, all right, for several reasons. Obviously, Daniel Jones isn't playing so Mike Glennon is starting, which is why the line jumped.
But even if Daniel Jones played, this Dolphins defense is for real. They started the season 1-7, but since then they've won four straight games and are basically in the playoffs. Every game they must win in order to keep their season going to the playoffs. Tua Tagovailoa has been playing amazing.
He had over 100 quarterback rating in the last four games. Their offense is moving, their defense is swarming. Meanwhile, the Giants just can't score in the red zone. They live by their defense and if they get down, this one won't be pretty. I love the Dolphins minus 4.
MINTY BETS: Just to recap our best bets, Pam has the over in the Washington-Raiders Game. I have the over and the Bucs-Falcons game and Jared has the Dolphins to cover. Bet $1.00 on any game and win $100 free. Sign up now at BetMGM.com/YahooSpecial.
