NFL Sunday Preview, Odds & Best Bets (Week 13): Rams Look to Stop Skid While Chiefs Eye Control of AFC West

Eddie Griffin

The best day of the week, at least if you’re into NFL betting, is here. We have a dozen games to take in on this fine Sunday, and all of them are meaningful matchups for division title races and the NFL playoff picture, in some way.

The biggest game of Week 13 is tomorrow night as the Buffalo Bills host the New England Patriots. That game is a must-win game for the Bills as it is, but the right series of results today will only further decrease their margin for error tomorrow and the remainder of the season.

While Bills futures are looking a bit shaky right now thanks to the Patriots’ surge and the number of teams in the AFC wild-card picture that can still edge them out at this point, the same can’t be said for the Chiefs. When the Chiefs were 3-4 and Patrick Mahomes was being far too generous to opposing defenses, the outlook was not so positive. Four wins in a row and a lot of chaos around the AFC later, the Chiefs are once again the betting favorite to win the AFC. In tonight’s Sunday Night Football matchup, the Chiefs could take a step toward yet another AFC West crown with a win over the rival Broncos.

Let’s take a look at the NFL betting odds and top betting picks for that matchup and the other 11 games on today’s NFL slate.
