Spread: DAL -9
Team Totals: Cowboys (28.0), Seahawks (19.5)
Week 13 kicks off with a Thursday night matchup between the 6-5 Seahawks and the white hot 8-3 Cowboys. Seattle travels to Big D as a 9-point road underdog with this game total sitting at a healthy 47.5, the second-highest total of any game on the Week 13 slate. As you can see above, most of that total is being driven by Dallas and their massive 28-point implied team total, which is second highest among all NFL teams this week behind only the Dolphins. Obviously, leaning into the Cowboys side of this one makes a ton of sense.
