NFL Week 13 Betting Picks

The Week 13 slate will be smaller compared to Week 12, as six teams enjoy a late bye. There are still plenty of games worth giving an early look before lines start to move.

Let’s take a look at the early Week 13 odds and which bets to place early.

Atlanta Falcons (-1.5) vs. New York Jets

With the news that Tim Boyle is getting another start for the Jets, it’s no surprise the Falcons are favored on the road. A strong Week 12 showing by Atlanta could push this line closer to a field goal.

The Falcons claim Desmond Ridder has worked hard to fix a few issues during his time on the bench, and Arthur Smith has indicated Bijan Robinson is in line for a heavier workload going forward. If either of these developments turns out to be a difference-maker against the Saints, Atlanta’s outlook going forward will be much better than it currently is. Desmond Ridder has enjoyed some success at home, and the Saints will be without CB Marshon Lattimore on Sunday.

The Jets aren’t giving anyone any reason to believe — the defense has regressed under the weight of constantly having to make up for a dismal offense, and that deflated feeling around the team is unlikely to disappear by the time Atlanta rolls into MetLife Stadium.

San Francisco 49ers Moneyline (+106) vs. Philadelphia Eagles

I’m skeptical of how much this line will move considering the Eagles are playing at home, but a struggle with the rejuvenated Bills could be enough to make the 49ers about even.

It’s fair to have concerns about Philadelphia’s offense right now after OC Brian Johnson largely stayed away from big plays against the Chiefs and didn’t see much success until the 4th quarter aside from a few D’Andre Swift runs. With the Bills’ defense playing well, the Eagles might not be able to afford that kind of offensive disappointment this week, and they certainly can’t afford it against a hungry 49ers team firing on all cylinders.

San Francisco’s defense remained dominant in Seattle even without Talanoa Hufanga, and the offense — with all four major weapons healthy right now — is better equipped to take on this Eagles defense than it was in the NFC Title Game. The 49ers will come into this game on extra rest and with a chip on their shoulder. 49ers moneyline is a nice early play.

Denver Broncos (+3) vs. Houston Texans

The Texans have admittedly looked better at home than on the road, but this line feels like it’s underestimating the Broncos just as oddsmakers have for weeks now. Denver has been a totally different team since its defense came together, and Russell Wilson has played enough mistake-free football to make the Broncos a legitimate playoff contender.

When it comes to this week’s matchup with the Browns, Cleveland might have a bit of a defensive advantage, but the Broncos have home-field advantage and a quarterback who is much less likely to make a game-changing mistake in what should be a low-scoring game. If the Broncos get that win over the Browns at home and jump over .500, a 3-point spread in Houston might narrow.

The Texans are a candidate for disappointment this week against the Jaguars, after narrowly escaping the Cardinals last week. It’s tough to bet against C.J. Stroud right now, but this might be the best value you’ll get on a surging Broncos team.

Los Angeles Chargers (-3.5) vs. New England Patriots

The Chargers are a disappointment from top to bottom, with the exception of Justin Herbert, who has continued to play very well with an underwhelming supporting cast. As unsettling as Los Angeles’ season has been, this matchup in New England will likely be an example of what happens when a broken offense simply meets a top-tier quarterback.

Herbert alone isn’t enough to beat teams such as the Lions or Cowboys, but he alone is probably enough for a comfortable win over the Patriots with the way their passing game has been struggling. If New England gets into a slog with the Giants this weekend, it’ll be the latest proof that the team is a few tiers below any franchise with Herbert under center.

Line movement may be limited because of the Chargers’ tough matchup with the Ravens, but Los Angeles at least doesn’t have much to lose there. It’s tough to imagine any loss to Baltimore being bad enough to narrow this line under a field goal. Chargers -3.5 might be the best value you can get.
