Week 13 NFL odds are live, and the best time to bet them is now — before the lines move.

Last week was up and down, and we even had to get off of a pick (Minnesota Vikings +3). The that the Vikings were without half of their defense led to our pick of the week, though, which was over 48.5 in the Vikings/49ers matchup — a bet that hit in the third quarter.

Week 13 Best Early NFL Bets

Teaser legs:

Wong teasers have not done particularly well as of late. As a reminder, in order for a standard -110 teaser to have value, you need both sides to be expected to hit at a rate of 72.4% (the square root of the break-even 52.4% you need for the whole bet). If you’re getting -120, which is standard, then it’s 73.9%. Without handicapping games, you’re basically asking the six points to get you 25%. That’s hard to do if you’re not crossing 3 or 7 and/or the total is extremely low (i.e., points are worth more).

The Colts suffered some bad turnover luck against the Buccaneers, losing all three fumbles in addition to throwing two interceptions. Indianapolis is known for dominating up front with a strong offensive line but got stonewalled by Vita Vea and the Bucs' best-in-class run defense. The tide will change in Houston against a team that couldn’t beat the Jets. Need we say more?
