There are 14 games on the Week 13 NFL schedule, half of them divisional tilts. The Steelers (5-5-1) host the Ravens as they try to claw their way back into the NFL playoff picture and the AFC North race. The game of the week could be Monday Night Football between the AFC East-leading Patriots (8-4) and the Bills (7-5) in Buffalo. Before you make your Week 13 NFL survivor pool picks, you NEED to see which team the SportsLine Projection Model is backing.
The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up almost $7,100 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. The model enters Week 13 of the 2021 season on an incredible 131-94 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.
The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick'em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is WAY UP.
The model can be used to crush the survivor pool format, which calls for picking one team to win each week but never using the same team twice. The team winning the most model simulations each week has been incredibly successful this season, as the 49ers in Week 1 (75 percent), Buccaneers in Week 2 (79 percent), Cardinals and Ravens in Week 3 (79 percent) and Bills in Week 4 (87 percent) were victorious.
The Patriots in Week 5 (78 percent), Colts in Week 6 (81 percent), Cards in Week 7 (84 percent), Rams in Week 8 (91 percent) and Steelers in Week 9 (73 percent) were winners for survivor contestants who used those teams, as were the Buccaneers and Browns in Week 11 (73 percent).
In Week 13, we can tell you the model is steering away from the Chiefs, even though they are 10-point favorites at home against the Broncos. Kansas City looks like it's back, but it faces a Denver team that beat both the Cowboys and Chargers easily last month. The Chiefs are winning in 66 percent of simulations, but the model is saving them for when they are locked into playoff form.
Instead, the model is backing one of the league's top offenses against a team that has one of the worst home records in the league! Picking this team not only will get you to Week 14, but will also put you in the optimal position to go deep in your NFL survivor pool. You NEED to see which team the model is backing before locking in your NFL survivor picks!
