This may be the grossest game on the slate, but it offers tons of great bets.

Both teams enter play with seven losses, and while no team with 7 Ls should be thinking about the playoffs in Week 13, the Falcons are.

This year the NFC South is one of the worst divisions in football history — even worse than the 2010-11 NFC West and the 2020-21 NFC East.

With a record of 5-7, the Falcons are half a game back of first place. There’s a good chance a 7-10 team could come out of this division and host a playoff game.

However, were are still a ways from the playoffs. As for this week, we have two of the lowest-scoring teams in the league going up against each other in what will probably be the lowest-scoring game of the week.

Under 42.5 (-106)

Kenny Pickett’s passing prop is an insane offering by Vegas at (223.5). Pickett has eclipsed 200 yards just once in his last four starts.

This game should look similar to the matchup they had on Monday against Indianapolis, as Atlanta has a similar defense to Indy. There will be little offense, and bettors should expect a lot of punts.

Kenny Pickett Under 223.5 Passing Yards (-113)

While this game could go either way, the scrappy Steelers are the smart play. In a game that is sure to be grind and one where the winner may only have 14, bettors should ride with Mike Tomlin.

Pittsburgh (-110)

Titans @ Eagles

The Tennessee Titans travel to Philly to take on the one-loss wonders.

The Titans have had a solid season to this point and posted one of the best records in the AFC. However, when looking at their schedule, they’ve beaten who they’re supposed to beat but have struggled with tougher opponents.

Tennessee has defeated the Raiders, Colts, Commanders, Texans, Broncos, and Packers.

Tennessee has lost to the Giants, Bills, Chiefs, and Bengals.

The Titans aren’t as good as people think, but according to public money, they are the favorite dog this week. So while there is always a chance they cover, the Tennessee moneyline is the suckers’ bet of the week.

Playing at home, though, it’s my belief that the Eagles should have no problem winning by a touchdown.

Philadelphia -4 (-110)
