Four teams drew more than 80 percent of the bets last week at William Hill Sportsbook: the Giants, Raiders, Cardinals and Dolphins. Only Miami covered, another example of how profitable it can be to fade the public. On the Week 13 NFL schedule, the Colts (-3.5 at Houston) and the Chiefs (-14 vs. Denver) are attracting about 70 percent of the bets. So should you instead consider the Texans and Broncos in your NFL parlays and NFL picks? Which NFL odds can you exploit?
Houston comes in on a 3-1 run, but the Texans just lost wideout Will Fuller and cornerback Bradley Roby to PED suspensions. Denver is getting quarterback Drew Lock back, but the Broncos have been downright awful against Kansas City, losing the last three meetings by a combined 96-25.

Top Week 13 NFL expert picks
Breaking down the NFL Week 13 schedule, Hammer jumped on Chicago (-3) to handle the visiting Lions in a battle of struggling NFC North teams. The Bears have won five straight meetings and this is a must-win for their playoff hopes.
In addition, Bears No. 1 wideout Allen Robinson has a dream matchup against the Lions' predominantly man and press coverage. When facing press coverage, Robinson averages a whopping 16.3 yards per catch. Detroit is banged-up in the secondary and has no one capable of shadowing him.
