The NFL is headed into Sunday Night Football and has Monday Night Football still to play, but we’ve got some early odds to get you ready for Week 13.

The Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys kick things off on Thursday night next week. The Atlanta Falcons will look to hold onto their spot atop the NFC South as they face the New York Jets on Sunday. The Denver Broncos face the Houston Texans on Sunday, as well, and the late afternoon slot will bring a game with heavy playoff implications as the San Francisco 49ers face the Philadelphia Eagles. The Chiefs face the Packers on Sunday night, and the Jaguars host the Bengals on Monday to wrap things up.

DraftKings Sportsbook unveiled opening odds for all 18 weeks back in May after the schedule was released. Those were pulled once the regular season got underway and the sportsbook re-opened the lines for Week 13 with a look-ahead line last week. Below, we’ve included the offseason opening odds, the look-ahead line, and the current line once it re-opens.

Here’s our full list of Week 13 odds at DraftKings Sportsbook. We’ll update once the odds re-open Sunday evening.

Seahawks vs. Cowboys

Sunday, November 26

Point spread: Cowboys -7
Point total: 45.5
Moneyline: Cowboys -340, Seahawks +270

Wednesday, November 22

Point spread: Cowboys -6.5
Point total: 45.5
Moneyline: Cowboys -285, Seahawks +230

May 12

Point spread: Cowboys -3.5
Moneyline: Cowboys -170, Seahawks +145

The Cowboys have won five of their last six games, most recently running away from the Washington Commanders with a 45-10 win on Thanksgiving. Dallas has been very strong as a favorite this season, often dominating against weaker opponents with seven of eight wins decided by 20 or more points. That trend could continue against a banged-up Seahawks team that hasn’t scored an offensive touchdown in their last seven quarters of play.

Pick: Cowboys -7

Lions vs. Saints

Sunday, November 26

Point spread: Lions -3
Point total: 44
Moneyline: Lions -170, Saints +142

Wednesday, November 22

Point spread: Lions -3
Point total: 44.5
Moneyline: Lions -155, Saints +130

May 12

Point spread: Lions -1.5
Moneyline: Lions -120, Saints +100

The Lions are coming off a frustrating home loss to the Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving. Meanwhile, the Saints gave up the top spot in the NFC South with a 24-15 loss at the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12. New Orleans failed to score a touchdown in that game, and the Lions should check into this matchup with extra motivation after a disappointing showing last time around. Look for Detroit to run the ball, get pressure on the quarterback, control this game, and ultimately cover the spread.

Pick: Lions -3

Dolphins vs. Commanders

Sunday, November 26

Point spread: Dolphins -8.5
Point total: 49
Moneyline: Dolphins -425, Commanders +330

Wednesday, November 22

Point spread: Dolphins -7
Point total: 49
Moneyline: Dolphins -298, Commanders +240

May 12

Point spread: Dolphins -3.5
Moneyline: Dolphins -170, Commanders +145

The Dolphins grabbed a 34-13 win over the Jets on Black Friday, and the Commanders fell to the Cowboys on Thanksgiving, 45-10. The Commanders struggled to defend the pass in Week 12, which is not a good sign for Miami’s pass-heavy offensive scheme that they will face in the week ahead. The Dolphins, for the most part, are winning the games that they should be winning, and the Commanders find themselves within that category. The Dolphins should easily run up the score here and cover.

Pick: Dolphins -8.5

Panthers vs. Buccaneers

Sunday, November 26

Point spread: Bucs -6
Point total: 39.5
Moneyline: Bucs -250, Panthers +205

Wednesday, November 22

Point spread: Bucs -5.5
Point total: 39
Moneyline: Bucs -258, Panthers +210

May 12

Point spread: Bucs -1
Moneyline: Bucs -115, Panthers -105

The Panthers lost yet again in Week 12, and the Buccaneers fell to the Colts, 27-20. They couldn’t quite put together a comeback drive in the fourth quarter, but Baker Mayfield looked solid, finishing the day with 199 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception. This will be a much-needed matchup for Tampa Bay, who still have playoff hopes alive, if distant. The Panthers shouldn’t have a shot against this Bucs team. Bryce Young finished Week 12 with 194 passing yards, no touchdowns, and no turnovers.

Pick: Bucs -6

Falcons vs. Jets

Sunday, November 26

Point spread: Falcons -2.5
Point total: 36.5
Moneyline: Falcons -142, Jets +120

Wednesday, November 22

Point spread: Falcons -1.5
Point total: 36.5
Moneyline: Falcons -125, Jets +105

May 12

Point spread: Jets -6.5
Moneyline: Jets -275, Falcons +230

After beating the New Orleans Saints in Week 12, the Falcons find themselves in first place in the NFC South despite their losing 5-6 record. The Jets, on the other hand, are 4-7 after dropping four straight games. Nobody is talking postseason in New York, especially with Tim Boyle starting at quarterback for Gang Green. Atlanta has been a flaky team this season, but the Falcons had a strong showing off their bye week, and it appears they are on an upward trajectory.

Pick: Falcons -1.5

Chargers vs. Patriots

Sunday, November 26

Point spread: Chargers -5.5
Point total: 41
Moneyline: Chargers -218, Patriots +180

Wednesday, November 22

Point spread: Chargers -4
Point total: 42.5
Moneyline: Chargers -192, Patriots +160

May 12

Point spread: Chargers -1.5
Moneyline: Chargers -120, Patriots +100

The Chargers have a knack for playing close games, and they will be traveling across the country in this AFC matchup. However, it’s hard to envision the Patriots keeping this game within the spread. New England is a mess right now, losing 10-7 at the New York Giants last week despite having a bye week to prepare. No matter who starts at quarterback for the Patriots, they will still have a tough time finding the end-zone against almost any NFL defense. Despite their underachieving nature in these situations, the Chargers have more than enough firepower to pull out the road win and cover the spread.

Pick: Chargers -4

Cardinals vs. Steelers

Sunday, November 26

Point spread: Steelers -4
Point total: 40
Moneyline: Steelers -192, Cardinals +160

Wednesday, November 22

Point spread: Steelers -3.5
Point total: 40
Moneyline: Steelers -180, Cardinals +150

May 12

Point spread: Steelers -6.5
Moneyline: Steelers -260, Cardinals +220

The Steelers won 16-10 at the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 12, pushing their record to a respectable 7-4, which is very much in the postseason conversation. Even though Pittsburgh only scored 16 points, the offense gained more than 400 yards (Kenny Pickett threw for 278, Najee Harris ran for 99 yards) in the first game after firing offensive coordinator Matt Canada. That presents some optimism in a winnable matchup against a struggling Cardinals team that will be traveling across the country to play in the elements.

Pick: Steelers -3.5

Colts vs. Titans

Sunday, November 26

Point spread: Colts -2
Point total: 42.5
Moneyline: Colts -130, Titans +110

Wednesday, November 22

Point spread: Titans -1
Point total: 41
Moneyline: Both -110

May 12

Point spread: Titans -2.5
Moneyline: Titans -130, Colts +110

In Week 12, the Titans snapped a three-game losing streak with a 17-10 win over the Carolina Panthers. RB Derrick Henry came through with 78 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns to lead the way. Meanwhile, the Colts extended their winning streak to three games with a 27-20 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Indianapolis averaged 5.74 yards per carry in that game,, and there’s a chance the Colts will keep running the ball with success at Tennessee next Sunday. These teams met earlier in the season, and Indianapolis won 23-16 behind 193 total rushing yards. A similar story (and final score) could play out in Week 13.

Pick: Colts +1

Broncos vs. Texans

Sunday, November 26

Point spread: Texans -2.5
Point total: 44.5
Moneyline: Texans -135, Broncos +114

Wednesday, November 22

Point spread: Texans -3
Point total: 44.5
Moneyline: Texans -155, Broncos +130

May 12

Point spread: Broncos -4
Moneyline: Broncos -180, Texans +155

The Texans fell to the Jaguars in Week 12, failing to stage a game-winning or -tying drive at the end of the fourth quarter and losing 24-21. CJ Stroud passed for 304 yards and two touchdowns, finding Nico Collins and Tank Dell in the end zone. The Broncos crushed the Browns in what appears to be part of a midseason push – Denver has now won five games in a row. The 29-12 victory saw Russell Wilson pass for a touchdown and rush for a second. This Broncos team looks unstoppable right now, but the Texans are a scrappy young team that is only improving by the week. I’m going with experience (and defense) over youth here.

Pick: Broncos +2.5

49ers vs. Eagles

Sunday, November 26

Point spread: Eagles -1
Point total: 45
Moneyline: Eagles -110, 49ers -110

Wednesday, November 22

Point spread: Eagles -1.5
Point total: 45.5
Moneyline: Eagles -125, 49ers +105

May 12

Point spread: Eagles -2.5
Moneyline: Eagles -135, 49ers +115

In a rematch of last year’s NFC Championship Game, the Eagles and 49ers are facing off in a game that could determine the top seed in the NFC. The 49ers are coming off a Thanksgiving Day drubbing of the Seahawks, while the Eagles battled it out with the Bills. The 49ers are led by ultra-efficient quarterback Brock Purdy and dynamic running back Christian McCaffrey, who had 114 yards and two touchdowns rushing last week. Eagles

Pick: 49ers +1

Browns vs. Rams

Sunday, November 26

Point spread: Rams -1.5
Point total: 39
Moneyline: Rams -122, Browns +102

Wednesday, November 22

Point spread: Rams -1
Point total: 39
Moneyline: Rams -120, Browns +100

May 12

Point spread: Browns -1
Moneyline: Browns -115, Rams -105

While the Cleveland Browns are 7-4, they’re coming off a tough loss to the Broncos where they lost quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson and wide receiver Amari Cooper to injury. Thompson-Robison was ruled out of the second half of the Browns’ game with a concussion, so his status for Week 13 is up in the air. If he can’t go, then either PJ Walker or Joe Flacco will get the start for the Browns. On the other side, the Rams snagged a 37-14 win over the Cardinals behind 200+ all-purpose yards from Kyren Williams. The Browns have the best defense in the NFL but could enter Sunday’s game with one of the worst offensive units.

Pick: Rams -2.5

Chiefs vs. Packers

Sunday, November 26

Point spread: Chiefs -7
Point total: 42
Moneyline: Chiefs -305, Packers +245

Wednesday, November 22

Point spread: Chiefs -7
Point total: 41.5
Moneyline: Chiefs -298, Packers +240

May 12

Point spread: Chiefs -5.5
Moneyline: Chiefs -225, Packers +190

Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs can all but clinch a postseason spot with a win over the Packers on Sunday, while Green Bay is looking to tread water in the NFC North. Packers quarterback Jordan Love has looked like a franchise quarterback over the past two weeks, as he recorded his first career 300-yard game in Week 11 before tossing three touchdowns against the Lions on Thanksgiving. After losing to the Eagles in Week 11, the Chiefs took care of business last week with a win over the Raiders.

Pick: Chiefs -7

Bengals vs. Jaguars

Sunday, November 26

Point spread: Jaguars -7.5
Point total: 41
Moneyline: Jaguars -375, Bengals +295

Wednesday, November 22

Point spread: Jaguars -6.5
Point total: 41
Moneyline: Jaguars -278, Bengals +225

May 12

Point spread: Bengals -1
Moneyline: Bengals -115, Jaguars -105

This matchup lost a lot of its luster two weeks ago when the Bengals lost Joe Burrow to a season-ending wrist injury, but there’s still plenty to watch. The Bengals and new quarterback Jake Browning will be playing for their playoff lives after losing to the Steelers last weekend, while the Jaguars moved into the driver’s seat in the AFC South thanks to a 24-21 win over the Texans. The Bengals' offense struggled against the Steelers' defense (Browning threw for 227 yards) and their defense gave up 400+ yards to the Steelers. It won’t get any easier for them against the Jaguars.

Pick: Jaguars -7.5
