Injuries and COVID-19 protocols continue to impact NFL odds as the season enters its final five weeks. Several points spreads have shifted ahead of this weekend’s games.

The point spread action in the Bengals-Chargers game continues to drift toward the host Bengals, pushing the line along for the ride. This game offers a marquee matchup of young QBs with tremendous playoff implications. Always appealing to bettors and fans, alike.

The Bengals have the top wild card seed at 7-4. The Chargers are seventh in the AFC playoff standings at 6-5. Depending on how things go elsewhere, the Chargers could be one of four 7-5 teams in the AFC West when Week 13 is over.

Here’s a look at how the Week 13 NFL betting landscape has changed on betting apps since odds were released. The list below contains the opening and current NFL Week 13 betting lines via DraftKings Sportsbook with a buzz on each game.

NFL CHAMPION: Super Bowl 56 Odds For All 32 Teams Plus NFL Futures Odds

Los Angeles Chargers at Cincinnati Bengals

BUZZ: The Bengals gained some respect among oddsmakers and the betting public after trashing the Steelers 41-10 in Week 12. Both QBs in the this game – Joe Burrow of the Bengals and Justin Herbert of the Chargers – have teamed up to demolish the concept of a “Sophomore Jinx.”

The movement to 3-points is recognition that these teams are dead-even on a neutral site. The weather in Southern Ohio might be an issue here for the Chargers, who play their home games indoors. Wind and rain is in the Sunday afternoon forecast, with temperatures in the low 50s.

New York Giants at Miami Dolphins

BUZZ: The Giants upended Philadelphia last week, but they lost Daniel Jones for the immediate future. “Danny Dimes” has been ruled out due to a neck injury. That news helped to push this line over the magical 3-point mark, meaning the Dolphins will need to win by more than a field goal to cover.

Mike Glennon is set to start for Big Blue at quarterback. The Dolphins are playing their best ball of the season after opting for Tua Tagovailoa as QB1. Miami gets several injured starters back, as well. This could be one to consider on Sunday, with the latest BetMGM bonus code offering up a risk-free bet worth up to $1,000 for the NFL slate.

Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers

BUZZ: Steelers all-world linebacker T.J. Watt has been on the Reserve/COVID-19 list since Monday. Ben Roethlisberger’s hourglass appears to be running lower on sand each week. How good is Baltimore’s defense? Lamar Jackson threw 4 interceptions last week against Cleveland. But the Ravens still scored a 16-10 victory.

The injury report for this game reads more like a rundown of each team’s roster. The Steelers had 9 players on their Thursday injury report, while the Ravens had 18.

Take a look at Steelers vs Ravens odds, injury report, betting lines and more.

Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans

BUZZ: The Colts could not hold off Tom Brady and the Buccaneers last week. Houston is the perfect antidote. Indianapolis has won 6 of 9 and is very much in the crowded AFC playoff hunt at 6-6. Unlike many NFL teams, the Colts are fully healthy. The Texans are, well, the Texans.

San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks

BUZZ: The Seahawks are painful to watch or wager upon at sportsbooks. Russell Wilson is nowhere near 100% since returning from his finger surgery. Seattle (3-8) became the first team in the NFL to clinch the “under” on its projected 2021 season win total after losing in Week 12.

The Niners have found their stride and put together a convincing win and cover over Minnesota in Week 12. This line could move more before Sunday.
