NFL Betting Lines: Week 13 Odds, Trends, and Top Matchups Preview

Week 13 of the NFL sesaon gets started Thursday night with an NFC East matchup between the Washington Redskins and the Dallas Cowboys,

Dallas is just a slim 1-point favorite thanks to a three-game losing streak both straight up and against the spread. At home Dallas is 1-4 SU and ATS in their last five, but they did defeat Washington 33-19 as a 3-point underdog in October. The Redskins are 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games and in Dallas they’re a strong 9-1 ATS in their last 10.

The New England Patriots are 8-point road favorites this week when they visit the Buffalo Bills. New England is on a seven-game winning streak with a 6-1 record ATS, and they’re 24-3 SU in their last 27 matchups with the Bills. Buffalo is 1-3 SU and ATS in their last four games, but are much stronger at home with a 4-1 SU and 3-1-1 ATS mark in their last five.

Sticking in the AFC, South division foes clash Sunday as the Jacksonville Jaguars host the Indianapolis Colts as a 9.5-point favorite. Jacksonville has gone 4-1 SU and 3-2 ATS in their last five, but at home they’re a dreadful 2-7 ATS in their last nine. The Colts are a lackluster 1-5 SU and 2-4 ATS in their last six games, and against Jacksonville they’ve lost five straight ATS, including a 27-0 shutout earlier this season as a 3-point underdog.

The Minnesota Vikings carry a seven-game winning streak into their matchup with the Atlanta Falcons this week. Minnesota is a 3-point underdog in this one, which may not bode well as they are 1-5 SU and 2-4 ATS in their last six as an underdog. Atlanta has won three straight SU and ATS, and against NFC opponents they’re a near-perfect 13-1 SU and 11-3 ATS in their last 14.

The Los Angeles Chargers are huge 14-point home favorites this week versus the winless Cleveland Browns. The Chargers are starting to find their game, having won back-to-back games SU and three in a row ATS. Los Angeles is also 6-1 ATS in their last seven. The Browns have now lost 12 straight at 2-9-1 ATS, but the last time they did win SU it was against the Chargers as a 4.5-point underdog.

The game of the week could be the Sunday Night Football affair between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Seattle Seahawks. The Eagles are a 4.5-point road favorite but that may not be a good thing despite their nine-game winning streak and 8-1 ATS record. In their last seven as a road favorite the Eagles are only 3-4 SU. Seattle has won three straight against the Eagles both SU and ATS, and as a home underdog they’ve been a solid bet at 5-1 SU and 6-0 ATS in their last six.

Week 13 concludes Monday night with the Pittsburgh Steelers at the Cincinnati Bengals as a 6-point road favorite. Pittsburgh has won five straight at 4-0-1 ATS, and against Cincinnati they’re 7-1-1 ATS in their last nine. The Bengals have won three straight ATS, and have thrown it in the oddsmakers’ faces lately when being listed as a home underdog, with a 6-2 SU record and 6-1-1 ATS mark in their last eight games.
