The List of Week 13 NFL Lines Are Listed At Bottom Of Article

Giants vs. RedskinsThe 2012 NFL season is winding towards the playoffs, and there are just five weeks left to go before the season comes to an end and the NFL playoff picture will be set. There is a lot of jockeying for position yet to do, and Week 13 will be lucky for some, and incredibly unlucky for others.

If you’re a fan of relatively surprising results, the Week 13 odds are probably for you. There are a tremendous number of close games that could go either way, but there are just four NFL point spreads this week thus far that are featuring odds of a field goal or less.

One of those games is the crucial tilt at Qualcomm Stadium, where the Cincinnati Bengals and San Diego Chargers will meet. The Bengals are back into the discussion for the AFC Wild Card spot, and they really would love to have this one to potentially take over as the lead dog for the sixth and final postseason bid in the AFC. The Chargers are on the verge of a disaster, and after losing a heartbreaker last weekend at home, a loss in this one would probably signal the end of the season and the end of Head Coach Norv Turner. Still, the Bengals are getting the nod by a two points.

Another of the close calls is going to come on Monday Night Football. The New York Giants and Washington Redskins are separated by just two games in the NFC East, and one of two things is going to happen this weekend. Either the G-Men are going to end up pulling away from the rest of the pack and really locking down the division title, or they’re going to be in a dog fight down the stretch. This is the chance for QB Robert Griffin III to shine, and the NFL odds suggest that he has a shot of pulling off the upset, as he and his Skins are just +2.5.

The other narrow NFL pointspreads are in games that really just aren’t all that interesting. The Carolina Panthers are laying a field goal to the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium, while the Oakland Raiders are -1.5 against the Cleveland Browns. About the only interested man in these two games is QB Matt Barkley, who might be heading to one of these teams next year as the face of the franchise.

On the other end of the spectrum, there are three games that feature point spreads of greater than a touchdown, and these are some really interesting ones. The Dallas Cowboys are coming off of the debacle on Thanksgiving Day at home against Washington, and now, they are going to have to take on a Philadelphia Eagles team that is falling faster than an airplane without an engine. The Cowboys are giving 9.5.

Ironically, that’s the exact same point spread that the Green Bay Packers are favored over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Both of these teams were beaten last week by contenders in the NFC, and they are both going to really need a win in this one to get back on good footing. The loser is going to be in a lot of trouble in the race in the NFC Wild Card chase, and that team could be out of the chase to win the NFC North as well, which might be a death sentence in the crowded and top heavy NFC.

The third big favorites are the New England Patriots, who actually can wrap up the AFC East if they beat the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. They’re three up games right now, and they’re going to be up four with four to play if they win in South Beach. If not though, this could become a relatively interesting stretch run for both teams. Remember that Miami is just a game out in the AFC Wild Card race as well. The Fins are getting a 7.5 point head start to cover the spread in wacky Week 13.

Elsewhere around the league, the general feeling is that the rich are going to get richer, and the poor are going to get poorer. The Chicago Bears are the perfect example. They’re heading up the NFC North at 8-3 and are right on the verge of a first round bye in the playoffs. They’ll take on the Seattle Seahawks, who are going to be playing in their second straight road game a long way from home. The Hawks, who are in the final playoff slot right now, are +4.5.

Seattle is still trying to chase down the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC West as well, but the Niners aren’t relenting at 8-2-1. QB Colin Kaepernick clearly has taken over as the man of the hour for the Niners, and he is going to be facing a second straight road test in this one as well. San Francisco is favored by a touchdown over the St. Louis Rams in a rematch of the tie game at Candlestick Park from a few weeks ago.

On Thursday Night Football, the Atlanta Falcons are favored by 3.5 against the New Orleans Saints, while the other 10-1 team in the league, the Houston Texans, are giving 5.5 to the Tennessee Titans.

Elsewhere at the top of the AFC, the Denver Broncos are -7 at home against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, while the Baltimore Ravens are -6.5 at home against the Pittsburgh Steelers, who are hoping to get QB Ben Roethlisberger back in the lineup.

There are only three games left that we have not referenced. The Indianapolis Colts and Detroit Lions are going to be battling it out to get into the playoffs in their respective conferences. Detroit knows that it is going to need to win out in all likelihood to get into the playoffs, in a very tough task in the NFC North. The Buffalo Bills are still in the thick of the fight in the AFC Wild Card race with so many teams at the bottom struggling, and they are going to need to take down the Jacksonville Jaguars to keep that dream intact. The Bills are favored by six in Orchard Park. Finally, the New York Jets, even without Fireman Ed in attendance, are laying 4.5 to the slumping Arizona Cardinals, who really have to have Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt on alert for his job after a seventh loss in a row last week.

This is one of the more interesting weeks of NFL totals that we have seen all year. It shouldn’t go as much of a surprise that the Falcons and Saints are combining for the highest ‘total’ of the season. Both QB Matt Ryan and QB Drew Brees have the ability to really light it up, and they are both clearly going to be able to put points up in bunches against defenses that have both been suspect at best. However, the number of 55.5 is one of the highest that you’ll see, not just this year, but really ever in the NFL.

There are four other games that are featuring ‘totals’ in the 50s as well. QB Peyton Manning and company only put up 17 points last week against Kansas City, but the team had dropped at least 30 in five games in a row before that. That’s why the Bucs and Broncos are sitting in at 50.5 right now. Indy and Detroit feature a ‘total’ of 51.5 after the offensive showcase on Thanksgiving Day in Motown, while Monday Night Football also features a ‘total’ of 51.

However, on the other end of the spectrum, there are at least two games that feature ‘totals’ as low as we have seen this year. The Jets and the Cardinals are two of the worst offensive teams in the league right now, and that’s why they have the lowest over/under on the Week 13 odds at 36.5. The Bears and Seahawks aren’t much higher at 37.5, though. Don’t be shocked when push comes to shove, if the Steelers and Ravens end up in the 30s as well. The opening number is set at 40, but that could dip if the news about Big Ben isn’t good.
