NFL Week 13 Betting Guide: Spread, moneyline, over/under picks

first_imgWeek 13 is shaping up to be another interesting betting slate. Six different games have spreads of a field goal or less, and the seven other games have spreads of a touchdown or more. There’s also only one double-digit spread (Redskins-Panthers). Meanwhile, only one game (Chiefs-Raiders) has an over/under over 50 points (51), while four others have totals under 40. More than at any other time this season, it’ll be important for you to trust your process in an attempt to identify edges. Luckily, BetQL can help out in that area. Our subscribers can view NFL ATS picks from BetQL’s model and make the most informed, data-driven wagers possible. Let’s get into some of the Sunday slate’s top options. WEEK 13 FANTASY RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker All data presented is as of Wednesday morning. You can track all NFL line movement on BetQL’s Line Movement Dashboard. Figures below calculated by wagering one unit on each touted bet with -110 spread odds.NFL Week 13 Betting Picks: Spread pick of the weekJets (-3.5) at Bengals The Jets are soaring! They’ve scored 34 points in each of their past three games and are riding a three-game winning streak into this matchup against the winless Bengals. Cincinnati has already named Andy Dalton its starting quarterback for this matchup, but it most likely won’t matter much against a surging New York defense that allowed 17 points to the Redskins in Week 11 and then just three points to the Raiders last week. The Jets even knocked Derek Carr out of that contest due to his general ineffectiveness. Sam Darnold’s passing offense is clicking, and Le’Veon Bell has a dream matchup against the NFL’s worst run defense. Further, after one or more UNDERs this season, the Bengals are 0-6 ATS (their game against the Steelers stayed under the total last week). The momentum is squarely in the Jets’ favor heading into this contest.WEEK 13 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endNFL Week 13 Betting Picks: Moneyline pick of the weekPatriots (-170) at Texans The Patriots are 10-1, in need of a statement win after Lamar Jackson and the Ravens have been anointed as the team to beat, and have a very frustrated Hall-of-Fame quarterback that knows their offense needs to be better. It’s hard not to trust New England’s incredible defense and believe that Brady and company will figure things out in this road contest against one of Bill Belichick’s former disciples, Bill O’Brien. Consider some of these trends working in the Patriots’ favor: New England is 23-2 in their last 25 games against terrible defenses (teams that allow six or more yards per play), 53-8 in its past 61 games against poor passing defenses (teams that allow seven or more passing yards per attempt), 28-8 in its past 36 games in which it’s coming off of a low-scoring offensive game (in which it scored 14 or fewer points), and 36-9 in its past 45 games against AFC South opponents. You can find more trends like those on BetQL’s Patriots-Texans game page, as well as updated odds, schedule analysis, injuries, and more. Per BetQL’s NFL Public Betting dashboard, the Patriots’ moneyline has received 41 percent of total bets, but a whopping 93 percent of the total money, which proves the sharps are all over New England.WEEK 13 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | Y! Cash | Y! GPP NFL Week 13 Betting Picks: Over/under pick of the weekVikings at Seahawks UNDER 49If you like a ground-and-pound style of football, you’re going to want to tune into this one. Minnesota ranks third in the NFL in rush-play percentage (50.2 percent) while Seattle ranks fifth (46.4 percent). While both of their passing offenses have shown bright spots at various points of the season, each team’s offensive scheme requires establishing the run. Therefore, expect the clock to keep moving without an abundance of scoring, especially since both defenses rank in the top 10 against the run (Vikings rank sixth, allowing 94.2 rushing yards per game, Seahawks rank 10th, allowing 101.5 rushing yards per game). You can find all of BetQL’s NFL over/under picks on their Totals spread dashboard.last_img read more

State-of-the art clinic strives to improve health and wellbeing in Killybegs

first_imgA new clinic staffed by highly-skilled and experienced therapists and offering a wide range of rehabilitation services has opened in Killybegs.Strive Clinic at Donegal Road, above the SuperValu Centre, specialises particularly in cancer rehabilitation and survivorship; mental health; lymphoedema management; heart health & weight management; and bone, muscle & joint health.Altogether, dozens of different conditions can be managed at Strive, ranging from joint pain and anxiety to lymphoedema and couples counselling. Says Strive CEO, Dr Chris McBrearty: “Our goal is to empower people to improve their health and change their lives by providing a human touch to the patient experience and a superior, evidence-based approach to care.”The Strive Clinic at Killybegs is the second of a series of clinics the company plans to open in Ireland. The first clinic is up and running at Galway since February this year.A major part of the services offered will cater for people who have been diagnosed with cancer or who have come through cancer treatment.People can be left with residual pain. Many cancer survivors are also suffering from anxiety over whether the disease will return. Others can have difficulties with lymphoedema or relationship problems. “The more we researched it, the more it became obvious that there were a lot of other rehabilitation needs out there”, he added.Dr McBrearty, a qualified medical doctor, has completed a Stanford University affiliated programme on medical innovation and he realised that, while some rehabilitation needs are being met in various parts of the country on a one-off basis, there was no single clinic offering such a wide spectrum of therapies.“What Strive Clinic offers is a completely new type of service in Ireland”, he says. “At the moment, there is nowhere either in the public or private sector offering this type of comprehensive inter-disciplinary service.”Such clinics are common in the United States as well as in Scandinavia and Germany.Dr McBrearty sees the Strive Clinic model fitting the objectives of the Irish Government’s National Cancer Strategy, which was launched in June 2017 and outlines a ten-year plan for cancer treatment in this country. Dr McBrearty says that, as well as offering the service in Galway and Killybegs, the plan is to have a Strive Clinic in close proximity to each of the cancer centres in Dublin, Limerick, Cork and Waterford.He added that one of the main reasons for basing a Strive Clinic in Donegal was the complete absence of specialist services here. “We looked at Letterkenny but we decided on South Donegal because there is a particular need for those services in this area.”Among the types of therapy offered are physiotherapy, lymphoedema therapy (swelling of the arms or legs after cancer treatment) and psychotherapy. Occupational therapy and clinical nutrition services will commence shortly.“I want to improve healthcare – access to it, the quality of it, and outcomes from it” Dr McBrearty said. “Traditionally, much emphasis has been placed on detection and acute management of disease in our health system. There is a lot more to healthcare than this. “I see a huge need for the provision of services that will improve the function and quality of life of patients. Strive Clinic does just that. I want patients to be at the centre of what we do and why we do it.”He added that, from personal experience, he had an intimate knowledge of the effects that a diagnosis of a complex medical condition can have both on patients and their families. “I want to use my unique perspective to ensure that all patients and their families receive the evidence-based care that they require and deserve”, he said.All services at the Strive Clinic are available on a fee-for-service basis and costs may be reimbursable through private health insurance.Patients can also access a medically appropriate selection of Strive’s health and wellbeing services online via the clinic’s secure telehealth platform, Strive at Home.
