NFL Week 13 lines: 5 best favorites to bet on
Week 13 of the 2020 NFL season gives us a handful of intriguing games, and these five favorites might make you money.
5. Cincinnati Bengals at Miami Dolphins (-11.5)
The Bengals have fought hard for much of the season, with almost all their losses coming in close affairs. So why take the Dolphins with such a gaudy line? Easy, they have Brandon Allen starting and not Joe Burrow.
Without Burrow, the Bengals are going to have a brutal time scoring against the Dolphins, who have one of the league’s better defenses. Look for Miami to score some behind Ryan Fitzpatrick, and avoid the back-door cover.

4. New York Giants at Seattle Seahawks (-10)
Seattle is also drawing a backup quarterback (in all likelihood) with Colt McCoy, as Daniel Jones is recovering from a hamstring injury suffered last weekend. While the Giants are leading the putrid NFC East at 4-7 and playing better ball, the Seahawks are trying to keep ahead in the tough NFC West.
Factoring in the travel for New York, the play of Russell Wilson and D.K. Metcalf, and the improved defense recently out of Pete Carroll’s group, 10 points is worth swallowing.
3. Las Vegas Raiders (-9) at New York Jets
This is a brutal spot for the Jets. New York is 0-11 and in dire need of the right situation to win a game. This isn’t it. The Raiders are coming off a 43-6 humiliation against the Atlanta Falcons and at 6-5, desperately need to win for nay real playoff hopes.
After losing last week, and getting blown out 34-3 last year to New York at MetLife Stadium, don’t expect the Raiders to get caught napping.
2. Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs (-14)
This is about one thing: Patrick Mahomes vs. Drew Lock. There’s no way any sane person believes Lock is going to outplay Mahomes on Sunday night at Arrowhead Stadium. Additionally, does any soul think the rest of the rosters aren’t heavily slanted toward Kansas City as well?
This has all the makings of a blowout. The much better team is in the heat of a race for home-field advantage, while the other simply wants the season to end.
1. Philadelphia Eagles at Green Bay Packers (-8.5)
Short and sweet here. Aaron Rodgers is having one of the finest seasons of his Hall of Fame career. Carson Wentz is arguably the worst starting quarterback in football. The Packers are at home, trying to lock up the NFC North over the next few weeks, and in the race for home-field in the NFC. Good luck to Philadelphia.
