Week 12 was another profitable week for the column as we went 3-2. In fact, Week 12 was an absolutely fantastic week for our team, putting us up 24 units on the year and giving us a fantastic springboard with which to attack the stretch. Totals-wise we are still recovering from some tough losses in the middle of the season, but we have seen a number of profitable weeks and things are starting to clear a little the last couple of weeks. Let’s take a look at my picks for the Week 13 NFL totals.

Week 12 lessons

As always I shall start with the losses. The Green Bay Packers’ loss was ugly. I did not expect that level of embarrassment for a second time in California this season. Green Bay was humiliated and never got close to the team total. However, I think it says as much about the 49ers defense getting right than about concerns for the Packers to some extent. I will explain this one further later in the article.

Last Thursday was really ugly. We have seen some good Thursday Night Football clashes this season, but that was not one of them last week. The Indianapolis Colts had no urgency and only vaguely looked like threatening the 20-point mark. The way their offense performed against a mediocre Houston defense is a major concern for me going forward this season.

Let’s get into the positive now shall we and review our three wins? The New York Giants offense is dreadful. their defense is not much better frankly, but the lack of ability of the Chicago Bears offense meant the total in that game was never close to hitting. Bears games are under contenders every week. Giants games will depend on the opponents.

Ok, so last week I confused myself with the Panthers Saints games. I made the pick I wanted, over 46.5, but I did not explain it right. Essentially I missed a paragraph where I was going to say that despite everything this game has the potential to go bananas and the over is the way to go because both teams would be desperate to put struggles behind them. If you followed the actual pick you were fine, but apologies if I confused anyone.

The final win came in the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals game. This one was never really in danger of going over. I felt comfortable about it all week, as I do most Pittsburgh games this season.
