NFL Predictions: Week 13 Computer Picks Favor Road Teams

New England's streak of nine straight OVERs will continue and Dallas's streak of eight straight failures at home will continue.

Jacksonville will make it 7-0 ATS as a road team and the Buccaneers will make it 6-0 ATS as a road team.

This is all according to the NFL predictions computer at OddsShark.com, which has been both hot and cold so far in 2012.

"The computer hates home teams in Week 13 as it has roadies going 12-2 ATS," explained football analyst Jack Randall at OddsShark.com. (Two games remained off the board as of press time, so the computer did not have a prediction on the Steelers-Ravens game or the Raiders-Browns game, although both games featured significant Week 13 trends.)

Ironically, with all the road teams picked to win, the week opens Thursday with the Falcons covering the home spread against the Saints.

After that, Houston will win 36-16 at Tennessee and New England will pummel the Dolphins 40-23 in two early games featuring big road spreads (-5.5 and -6.5 respectively as of press time).

The week ends Sunday night with the Cowboys winning 20-13, but not enough to cover the 10.5-point spread against the free-falling Eagles.

And Monday Night Football sees the other two NFC East teams battling in Washington. The Giants are favored and will win 32-26, according to the computer.
