MEL's NFL Betting Tips 2023

free handicapping info to beat the NFL spreads


QUICK notes: Week #12 isn't a week when any games jump out for me. I'm taking Buffalo +3 against Philly. BUFF has been mediocre versus a soft schedule, but this could be the week they put it together. PHIL could be in a letdown spot having played a Superbowl rematch with KC on Monday night, and next week play an NFC final rematch with SF. (Mel C 11/25/23)

This site began as Mel's Free NFL Picks in 1994. It is the longest running NFL handicapping website. It offered my free NFL picks, as well as publishing the first statistically based NFL power ratings. The picks managed to generate a profit over a 14 year period. Since then I've switched to providing links to NFL handicapping info that I use. I hope these NFL handicapping links help you to win on your pro football wagers.
