Alright, so the start to December wasn’t what I hoped it would be picking NFL games. It was average — all the way around.
I went 7-7 against the spread in Week 13 with my Expert Picks, 3-3 with my Best Bets and 9-5 straight up as part of the Pick Six Podcast. That brings my overall ATS record to 99-92-3, my straight-up record to 115-78-1 and my Best Bets record to 41-40.
Going into last week, I thought I had a good grasp of the games in the first week of December, but it didn’t play out that way. There are a lot of games I do really like this week, especially with some teams playing consecutive road games.
Here’s an easy pick: The Titans own the Jaguars in Nashville. Take that for what it’s worth. Here are the rest of the picks:

This is a playoff game for these teams. The Steelers impressed in beating Baltimore last week in a close game, while the Vikings struggled against the Lions. It’s tough to play on the road on a short week, especially after a rivalry game, which is why I think the Vikings will win this one in a low-scoring game.
Pick: Vikings 20, Steelers 14
