NFL Week 13 lines: Making a case for each underdog

Looking at the NFL Week 13 lines, the underdogs have ample ways to win. Let’s give each a way to cover and perhaps win outright.

Dallas Cowboys (-4.5) at New Orleans Saints

New Orleans is finally preparing to go with Taysom Hill under center, giving the Cowboys a different look than we’ve seen all year.

Arizona Cardinals (-7.5) at Chicago Bears

If the Bears are going to cover, it’ll be because Kyler Murray isn’t fully healthy while the Bears make some plays to create turnovers.

Indianapolis Colts (-9) at Houston Texans

Houston can be competitive at times with Tyrod Taylor under center. It’s tough seeing the Texans win, but nine is a large number for a road team.

Los Angeles Chargers at Cincinnati Bengals (-3)

Justin Herbert is capable of winning this game, and it’ll largely be on him to deliver the Chargers. The defense hasn’t done the job.

Minnesota Vikings (-7) at Detroit Lions

Minnesota makes every game close. Hell, the Vikings needed a last-second field goal at home to beat Detroit in the first matchup.

New York Giants at Miami Dolphins (-3)

Miami is winning, but the Giants have enough talent to score 20 points on South Beach. They do it, and Miami will have a hard time covering the number.

Philadelphia Eagles (-6.5) at New York Jets

If Jalen Hurts can’t play, the Jets are getting a different offense that won’t have had much time together. However, maybe stay away from this.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-11) at Atlanta Falcons

Divisional games are often closer than expected. Atlanta hung tough in the first matchup between these two before a few late turnovers turned the tide.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Los Angeles Rams (-13)

The power of prayer?

Washington Football Team at Las Vegas Raiders (-2.5)

Washington is playing really well, is finally getting a rhythm offensively and the coaching staff is terrific.

Baltimore Ravens (-3.5) at Pittsburgh Steelers

This is one of the great rivalries. Don’t be surprised when this comes down to a field goal in a low-scoring affair.

San Francisco 49ers (-2.5) at Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks have nothing to lose, and the Niners are banged up. But this is a tough case to make.

Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs (-10)

The Broncos are good defensively and head coach Vic Fangio has done well to slow down the Chiefs. The moneyline is a bad idea, but 10 points is a large line.

New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills (-3)

The Patriots are the hottest team in the NFL. New England has the defense, coaching and efficiency to win on the road here.
