Office Pool Picks: Week 13

November 30, 2017

The season is winding down and the chance to make up ground in office pools is running thin in some cases. Meanwhile, other contests are just reaching the climax. Don’t make your picks alone! I have you covered with my picks for Confidence Pool, Survivor and Against the Spread and all of your Week 13 Office Pool Picks.

Here are my picks for this week ahead in the various polls:

16 Chargers vs. CLE
15 Patriots at BUF
14 Jaguars vs. IND
13 Rams at ARI
12 Raiders vs. NYG
11 Saints vs. CAR
10 Steelers at CIN
09 Redskins at DAL
08 Titans vs. HOU
07 Jets vs. KC
06 Bears vs. SF
05 Packers vs. TB
04 Eagles at SEA
03 Lions at BAL
02 Vikings at ATL
01 Dolphins vs. DEN

Each week I’ll offer up my “playing it safe” and my “out on the limb” pick for your elimination pool:

Playing it safe – Chargers
Phillip Rivers and company have things clicking on all cylinders right now and now they get to return home with a few extra days to prepare after playing on Thanksgiving to face a winless Browns’ squad. Look for the Lightning Bolts to strike on Sunday.

Out on a limb – Jaguars
I typically avoid divisional matchups when possible, but at this point of the year people are likely running out of options. Jacksonville let me down last week on the road versus the Cardinals, but they’re fighting for their playoff lives and back at home. I have no problems rolling with them here.

AGAINST THE SPREAD (28-30-2 on season)

Pick of the Week
Patriots -8

Other Plays to Consider
Redskins +1
Saints -4
Over 42 TEN/HOU
Over 42.5 NYG/OAK
