Week 13 of the 2015 NFL season could feature a bunch of close games as the schedule includes just one contest with a betting line of more than a touchdown. Many of the league’s top teams are on the road, potentially increasing the possibility of a few upsets occurring.
In their pursuit of perfection, the 11-0 Carolina Panthers visit the New Orleans Saints as seven-point favorites. The Cincinnati Bengals, who are 9-2 on the season, are also seven-point road favorites in Week 13. The Arizona Cardinals and Denver Broncos are 5.5-point favorites and 4.5-point favorites, respectively, on the road.
The Cleveland Browns are home underdogs against Cincinnati, having lost six straight games. They are tied with the Tennessee Titans for the NFL’s worst record at 2-9. But the Titans find themselves as 2.5-point favorites for their game in Tennessee against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The two teams met in Jacksonville two weeks ago, and the Titans blew a late fourth-quarter lead.
After losing their first game of the season, the New England Patriots are the biggest favorites of the week. They are giving the Eagles 9.5 points, though the betting line opened at 13 points. Rob Gronkowski’s knee injury isn’t considered to be serious, but he’s expected to sit out Sunday’s contest.
The Pittsburgh Steelers opened as six-point favorites over the Indianapolis Colts, but there is no betting line as of Tuesday morning. Ben Roethlisberger’s status is unclear after he appeared to have suffered a concussion in Week 12. Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said that injured quarterback Andrew Luck is “week to week.”
Carolina’s visit to New Orleans features the highest over/under on the schedule. Houston’s visit to Buffalo has the lowest over/under at 41.5 points.
