With Thanksgiving now behind us, the NFL playoff race is heating up. As we head into the home stretch, let’s look at the Week 13 betting lines and odds.
It’s a tale of two conferences as we enter December and the home stretch of the 2021 NFL season. While the AFC has 12 teams sitting at .500 or better, the NFC is much more top heavy. We are heading into Week 13, so let’s look at the odds for each game on the slate, courtesy of WynnBet.
What are the odds for each game in Week 13?
Thursday, December 2nd, 8:20 p.m. EST

Sunday, December 5th, 1:00 p.m. EST

Los Angeles Chargers at Cincinnati Bengals (-2), O/U 50
New York Giants at Miami Dolphins (-2.5), O/U 42

Sunday, December 5th, 8:20 p.m. EST
Kansas City Chiefs (-10) at Denver Broncos, O/U 49
Monday, December 6th, 8:15 p.m. EST
New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills (-3), O/U 45.5
Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers
The Bengals embarrassed the Steelers by 31 in Week 12, the Steelers worse loss in over three decades. They take on the Chargers, who are coming off a bad loss in their own right to Denver. With the Bengals sitting at 7-4, and the Chargers currently at 6-5, this game has huge implications in the AFC playoff picture.
The Chiefs had everything go right in their bye week, as the Chargers and Titans both suffered losses. Andy Reid is historically fantastic coming off the bye, and the Chiefs offense could be too much for Denver to handle with Kansas City seemingly finding its groove over the last few weeks.
The week closes out with an all-important matchup in the AFC East. The Patriots are winners of six straight games, leading the division with an 8-4 record. Josh Allen and the Bills are the beneficiaries of an easy schedule the rest of the way. If Buffalo beats New England, it will be in prime position to lock up the division and secure one of the top seeds in the AFC.
