NFL Week 13: Packers kill the house

TAGs: NFL

Are you still drowsy from a big Thanksgiving feast? Maybe a big win over the weekend, either by your favorite team or on a big bet might have helped. We heard once again from our Bodog bookie to give us the inside dirt on what went down in the NFL this past week, and how it affected the house.

Biggest Liability

nfl-week-13-packers-kill-the-houseIf you bet big on Green Bay to beat the Giants, then you part of the crowd that helped make Bodog’s oddsmakers regret their choices. “Not to be deterred from the humbling they received at the 49ers last weekend bettors overwhelmingly backed the Green Bay Packers (-7) against the Giants in snowy conditions,” our insider told us. “The Giants were able to move the ball but couldn’t get past 3 interceptions from QB Daniel Jones, ultimately falling 31-13.”

That’s So Raven

While that Packers win might have hurt, the game to watch was happening in Baltimore. “The Ravens improved to 10-2 on the season with 8 straight wins as they held on to knock off the 49ers 20-17 in which many billed as a Super Bowl preview,” he noted. “With the head to head tiebreaker against the Patriots, the Ravens now have the inside track for the #1 seed in the AFC.”

Father Time Brady

Our bookies was disappointed with the last game of the night on Sunday, as New England doesn’t look like the power house they’d hope to be. “Brady and the Pats offense once again looked pedestrian as the future hall of famer struggled to find rhythm early on against the Houston Texans on Sunday Night Football,” he shared. “Things don’t get any easier for New England as they travel to Arrowhead next weekend for an AFC Championship re-match with the Chiefs.”

We’re All Winners!

But a nice surprise earlier in the day helped make the day worth it. “Cincinnati were +120 home underdogs against the New York Jets and with Andy Dalton back under center secured their first win of the season,” he cheered. “They were +250 to finish the season winless.”

Week 14 Look Ahead

Which games are Bodog most excited for this week? “Ravens -5 @ Bills could be a playoff preview,” he noted. “Seahawks @ Rams (no odds available as of publication) is a must-win for the Rams’ dwindling playoff hopes, and finally the Patriots @ Chiefs (no odds available as of publication).”
