Week 13 of the NFL betting season is already here, and as we come down to the wire, each and every game becomes that much more critical for teams fighting for a playoff spot. 

This weeks two featured matchups should be the most exciting games televised this Sunday. Expect both games to come down to the final moments of regulation and bet based off our predictions. 


Pittsburgh Steelers (8-3) vs Baltimore Ravens (8-3)

The leaders of the AFC North will battle it out on the field this Sunday as QB Ben Roethlisberger attempts to bring his team to their third straight victory.

Big Ben is coming off of a game in which he failed to throw a touchdown. Although his team managed to grab the W in overtime against the Buffalo Bills, the Steelers are going to need their QB to produce in bunches against the Ravens.

Pittsburgh's defense leads the league in opponents rushing yards per game, giving up just 64 yards per contest and ranking fifth in opponents total yards per game. 

The Ravens offense ranks 14th in the NFL in total offense per game and 14th in total rushing yards per game.



 Baltimore is giving up three points to the Steelers in this matchup.



The Steelers hold an impressive 5-1 record on the road and should be able to cover the spread during this exciting matchup. 


New York Jets (9-2) vs New England Patriots (9-2)

Both the Jets and Patriots lead the way in the AFC East. New York has now won in each of their last four games and looks stronger than ever.

QB Mark Sanchez continues to play effective football betting for the Jets and should be able to produce against a New England Patriots team that ranks second to last in total defensive yards per game.

New York's exciting defense (which ranks third in the league in total defensive yards per game) will have the task of maintaining QB Tom Brady from going off for a big game.

New England leads the NFL in points per game, averaging 30.4 per contest. They've now scored at least 31 points against each of their last three opponents and have picked up impressive wins against the Colts and Steelers during that span.



 The Jets are given 3.5 points for this match-up and they are going to need all the points that they can get against this high-powered Patriots offense.



SBG Global sportsbook expect New England to run away with this one.
