2015 NFL Week 13 Schedule & Betting Odds

raiders derek carrThe NFL season has yet to reach do-or-die status, but that phase is rapidly approaching for clubs fighting to secure a spot in the playoffs. And this weekend is certainly a critical one for teams like the Texans, Bills, Falcons, Jets, Raiders, Colts and Steelers. Houston presently owns the sixth and final playoff position in the AFC, but the other six teams mentioned are looking to move up their respective conference rankings on Sunday.

The 2015 NFL Week 13 schedule could prove problematic for the likes of Atlanta, Oakland and Houston. That according to the most recent NFL betting odds release from Bovada.lv anyway.

The Falcons, losers of four straight, travel to Tampa Bay to face the rival Buccaneers and they are getting two points from Jameis Winston and company. The Raiders welcome the surging Chiefs to Oakland where they are lined as a three-point home dog to Kansas City. The Texans, meanwhile, face the Bills in Buffalo and Bovada is calling for an end to their four-game winning streak, favoring Rex Ryan’s squad at -3 against the spread.

New York will play a ‘road’ game against the Giants, but it is favored by two over its city rival. The meeting is a crucial one for Tom Coughlin’s crew as well. At 5-6, the G-Men are presently tied with Washington atop the NFC East standings and the Redskins are listed as a 4.5 point Monday Night Football favorite over the injury plagued Cowboys.

Also facing critical challenges this weekend are the Seahawks, Bears and Eagles. Seattle is sixth in the NFC overall standings at 6-5, but the Falcons, Bucs, Giants and Bears are all close behind at 5-6. Russell Wilson and his cohorts are tasked with beating the 8-3 Vikings in Minnesota; the game is presently lined as a pick’em contest.

Chicago is favored by seven over the visiting Niners while the 4-7 Eagles, who’s only playoff hope rests in a division title, are a 9.5 point road dog to the Patriots.

Notable Week 13 Trends:

The Giants are 5-0 both straight up and against the spread in their last five games playing ‘at home’ against the Jets.

The Eagles are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games playing as a road dog coming off a road loss.

The Buccaneers are 11-3-1 against the spread in their last 15 games playing as a home favorite coming off back-to-back road games.
