NFL Opening Betting Lines: Week 13
The Denver Broncos already took care of business against the Kansas City Chiefs once this season, and they'll get a chance to do it again on Sunday afternoon as road favorites on the opening NFL lines for Week 13.
The Broncos knocked off the then-unbeaten Chiefs 27-17 as a 7.5-point home favorite when the division rivals met for the first time this season back in Week 11, and the oddsmakers opened Peyton Manning and company as 2.5-point road favorites for their rematch in Kansas City on Sunday afternoon.
Later on Monday that line was already up to Denver -3.5 at 5Dimes.
The New England Patriots staged a huge second-half comeback to beat the Broncos in Week 12 on Sunday Night Football, and they opened as 3-point road favorites for their game this weekend against the Houston Texans. That line quickly shot up to New England -9.5 at 5Dimes with the Texans on a nine-game losing streak.
The Carolina Panthers have the longest winning streak in the league at seven games, and they opened as big 10.5-point favorites at home against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for this weekend. At 5Dimes that line is now down to Carolina -9.5.
As for the Thanksgiving Day games, the Lions opened at -3.5 against a Packers team that will likely play once again without starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The Cowboys then opened at -6.5 at home against the Raiders, and the Ravens opened at -3 at home against the Steelers.
The Seahawks opened at -5 at home against the Saints in a marquee matchup on Monday Night Football this week. Early action at 5Dimes saw that line move to Seattle -7, with the Seahawks boasting the best record in the NFL at 10-1.
