It’s December you snowflakes, as we bring you our Week 13 Picks Podcast.
Wade & Ryan have been busy in the toy shed making their predictions for this next slate of games as the ground starts to harden in the league and around us all.
To say it’s been a bizarre season would be an understatement, as legends have faltered, new heroes have emerged, and the Eagles are 10-1. Who would have thunk?
With that in mind, the boys look at the more interesting matchups for Week 13 in the 2022 NFL season, with fun anticipation that anything can happen.
Here’s the link so that you can get the full Week 13 Picks Podcast.
Jets (7-4) vs -1.5 Vikings (9-2) +44.5
The Jets and Vikings have surprised us all with their stellar start to the 2022 season.
Despite being Zach Wilson’d with a solid core, New York has found their way with a flash of Mike White.
Minnesota is shining bright under the light of one Justin Jefferson, while Cousins still shirks like a vampire in the shine of primetime.
New York has brought back Mike to lead the way after a beatdown of the Bears worthy of an Aaron Rodgers belt.
It’s the Jets D that has really kept them in games, and with 7 wins and the Patriots taking one on the chin from the Bills, a W here could start to set some separation.
No one believes in the Vikings, as if their wins are somehow as mythical in tally.
Kirk Cousins can still make some bonehead moves, but with a offence like his, he can pretty much fail to win.
Ryan likes Minnesota to swing their Viking hammer at home, knocking back the White-ness to reality with a display of scoring. He believes that the hype will be enough to beat the Jets.
Wade is backing the Jets here to upstart the shaky Minnesota miracles. The D will shake up the cousin flicking festival, and use their running game to keep themselves competitive.
Ryan- Vikings 29 Jets 24
Wade- Jets 30 Vikings 28
-1 Jaguars (4-8) vs Lions (4-7) 57.5
With a game boasting a 57 plus point total, Las Vegas knows that this match is gone to be a slugfest.
Both teams lack the D to deliver, and they’re both on an upward ascent of winning time.
Trevor Lawrence finally looked like an NFL star, leading his team down the field like a real leader.
Finally. It’s been along time coming, but can he sling together a series of wins after too many years of rebuilding?
Detroit has been hard-knocking their way back to the wins, as Dan Campbell has got his Lions ready to roar in this battle of the big cats.
Ryan likes Detroit here to upset the Jaguars at home, and bite out a chunk from the Jacksonville junkies.
Wade is also big on the Lions, betting that the running game and speedy receiver match-ups will be a sure source of fantasy picks.
Ryan- Lions 30 Jaguars 27
Wade- Lions 33 Jaguars 26
-5.5 Browns (4-7) vs Texans (1-9-1) +47.5
Let’s talk about the Deshaun in the room shall we?
Buried beneath the big games, the NFL snuck us back the return of disgraced quarterback Deshaun Watson to face the team we wanted to leave.
You don’t mess with Texas.
Whatever the boo’s or shenanigans organised to shame this young man, it’s still an NFL game so show some respect.
Respect is something the Browns don’t have for themselves as they have blundered their way through some pretty easy picks and opportunities over the past few years.
Watson has a chance to at least hobble together a team that has Amari Cooper, and an underused running duo in Chubb and Hunt.
No respect at all for the Texans. Only Rodney Dangerfield could run a team with no respect all the way down. Davis Mills is gone, so its on Pearce to run the ball up the line.
Ryan likes the Browns to get through the boo’s and get the win, although he thinks that the hometown Texas faithful will rally them to cover.
Wade has the Browns coming together to support Watson, and Cleveland getting a win to save some face.
Ryan- Browns 24 Texans 22
Wade- Browns 27 Texans 21
