NFL Week 13 Odds: Line Movement
The line for the New England Patriots vs. Houston Texans matchup this weekend continues to move in the direction of Tom Brady and company at the sportsbooks, with that game set to get underway at 1:00pm ET on Sunday afternoon.
The Patriots opened as little as 3-point favorites for their road game against the ice-cold Texans, but over the course of the week that line has moved to New England -9 at 5Dimes. The Patriots are 8-3 SU and 6-5 ATS on the season, while the Texans are 2-9 both SU and ATS and winless since Week 2.
The Denver Broncos are also listed as road favorites at the sportsbooks for this weekend as they take on the Kansas City Chiefs for the second time in three weeks. Denver topped Kansas City 27-17 as a 7.5-point home favorite in Week 11, and they've gone from 2.5-point to 5.5-point favorites at 5Dimes for their 4:25pm ET game on Sunday.
Three games on this weekend's schedule have moved to pick'ems at 5Dimes over the last few days; they are Chicago at Minnesota, Cincinnati at San Diego, and the Giants at Washington on Sunday Night Football. Washington had opened as a 1.5-point favorite against rival New York, but bettors apparently didn't like what they saw when the Redskins fell 27-6 at home against the 49ers on Monday Night Football.
Elsewhere around the NFL odds for Sunday, the Colts are now just 3.5-point favorites at 5Dimes for their home game against the Titans, while the Browns have been bet down to 7.5-point favorites at home against Jacksonville for their Week 13 matchup; Cleveland had opened at -10.
Finally, one line that has stayed steady this week is New Orleans at Seattle on Monday Night Football. The Seahawks, who boast the best record in the league at 10-1 SU (7-4 ATS), opened as 5-point home favorites for that game, and that's where the line remained as of Thursday night at 5Dimes.
