NFL Week 13 betting guide and our best bets for the Westgate SuperContestGet the Full StoryJoe Sargent Getty Images
Every week, we're picking five games against the spread for our entry in the WestGate Las Vegas SuperContest with the goal of winning the grand prize of 1.4 million.
Last week, our picks went 2-3 against the spread, leaving us with some work to do to get back to profitability.
This Sunday, the Giants, Jets, and Colts are some of our favorite bets to cover the spread.
We've had a rough go of it picking games against the spread of late, but in our weekly SuperContest picks, the damage has been fairly mitigated.
Every week, we're putting together our best five picks against the spread to submit into the WestGate Las Vegas SuperContest with the goal of winning the grand prize of 1.4 million.
Right now, that looks like something of a longshot, but a hot streak at the right time could put us in contention, or at the very least, get us back into the black for the season.
Take a look below for our best bets of the week. Home teams get the asterisk.
LAST WEEK: 2-3OVERALL: 27-32-1Indianapolis Colts -4 over Jacksonville Jaguars

The Colts are one of the hottest teams in the NFL right now. Winners of five straight, Indianapolis is now in control of its playoff destiny.
Against them is the Jacksonville Jaguars, a team that they beat just a few weeks ago. The biggest change between now and then is that the Jaguars have decided that Cody Kessler give them a better chance to win than Blake Bortles.
Indianapolis needs this game exponentially more than the Jaguars do, and should be able to do enough to cover the number.
Pittsburgh Steelers -3.5 over Los Angeles Chargers

Both of these teams have been solid all season but are coming off losses. I'm backing the Steelers to be better prepared to bounce back as the home team.
James Conner is averaging over 100 rushing yards per game in his past three outings in Pittsburgh. Sunday feels like a fine time for a fourth.
New York Giants 5.5 over Chicago Bears

Mitch Trubisky is out again for Chicago, meaning Chase Daniel will be taking snaps for the Bears. While he was perfectly adequate in the team's Thanksgiving win over the Lions, a backup quarterback going on the road as a favorite of almost a touchdown doesn't pass the smell test.
Unless the Bears defense can score twice which, admittedly, is entirely possible I don't see Chicago covering this number.
