2019 NFL Week 13 Betting
The bye weeks are done and it’s back to a 16-game schedule just in time for the Holiday festivities. Every sports league is directly tied to a major Holiday. The NBA is showcased on Christmas Day, Major League Baseball sets off the fireworks on the Fourth of July and the NHL goes outdoors on New Year’s Day. The NFL has been playing games on Thanksgiving Day since the league was first organized, and since 1978 the Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions have served as hosts. They’ll do so again in Week 13 of the NFL regular season.
A smorgasbord of football hits the airwaves on Turkey Day with a pair mouth-watering NFC divisional matchups and a key interconference tilt. Continuing the tradition of hosting the early game on Thursday, the Lions will square off for the second straight year and for the third time in the last six seasons with the Chicago Bears in a NFC North tilt. The Chicago franchise has made 35 appearances on Thanksgiving, the second-most of any non-host, and they are 18-15-2 in those games.
The Dallas Cowboys have hosted the late afternoon game on Thanksgiving for all but two years since 1966 and they’ll take on Buffalo in an interconference tilt. The Bills haven’t played on Turkey Day since 1994 and this will be just their fourth appearance since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. The Bills are 1-2 in those games.
The league added a third game to the Thanksgiving Day lineup in 2006 with the introduction of a primetime matchup. Since 2012 the late game has been broadcast on NBC as part of the network’s Sunday Night Football package. The original plan was for various teams to host the primetime game and that’s been the case with 11 different teams hosting. The Atlanta Falcons become the third two-time host with a rematch of last year’s NFC South tilt with the Saints.
After a few days to digest the feast, grab a leftover turkey sandwich and settle in for a full afternoon of Sunday football. Eight games make up the early slate with a couple of key AFC divisional confrontations. Tennessee will attempt to do something its rarely done, and that’s win in Indianapolis. Since realignment in 2002, the Colts have won 14 of the 17 meetings on their home turf. We also have a classic AFC West matchup between the Raiders and Chiefs from KC. The Chiefs have won six straight at Arrowhead over their heated rival going 5-1 ATS in that span.
The late window of games on Sunday features three divisional matchups that will all have an impact on the standings. The AFC West completes its set of games when the Chargers visit the Broncos. The Rams have enjoyed all kinds of success against the Cardinals under Sean McVay and will look to keep that going with a trip to Arizona in the NFC West. And there’s plenty of hype surrounding the AFC North confrontation between Cleveland and Pittsburgh.
Those games lead us into the Sunday night and Monday night tilts that feature two tantalizing interconference games. Like many teams over the last two decades, the Houston Texans have had little success against the Patriots. The teams get together Sunday night for the fifth consecutive regular season with New England looking to extend its overall eight-game win streak in the series. The betting concludes when the Vikings visit the Pacific Northwest for a showdown with the Seattle Seahawks.
