Hopefully you had a wonderful Thanksgiving that was full of food, drink and visits to the pay window. Underdogs went 2-1 on Thursday, so maybe it wasn't an incredibly lucrative day for the public. Then again, I don't know why you would want to bet on Matt Nagy vs. Dan Campbell at all. Either way, it's time to look forward to this Sunday, and if you're smart, beyond this Sunday.  

Every Friday, we take a look at the NFL lines a week in advance to determine if we should put money down now in order to get the best bang for our buck. Most of these lines will likely change before we reach Week 13, so we want to go ahead and get our bets in if we see a nice opportunity for an upset, or to jump on a favorite before the line moves even more.

Before we jump into some early bets to consider, here are the lookahead lines for Week 13. All NFL odds come courtesy of Caesars Sportsbook. 

Week 13 lookahead lines

Cowboys at Saints (OFF)
Colts (-7) at Texans
Giants at Dolphins (-2.5)
Vikings at Lions (OFF)
Cardinals at Bears (OFF)
Buccaneers (-9.5) at Falcons
Eagles (-6.5) at Jets
Chargers at Bengals (-1.5)
Ravens (-3) at Steelers
Jaguars at Rams (-12.5)
Washington at Raiders (OFF)
49ers (-2) at Seahawks
Broncos at Chiefs (-9.5)
Patriots at Bills (OFF)

Picks to consider

Eagles (-6.5) at Jets

The Eagles have now won two straight games by double digits, and while they may not be Super Bowl contenders, they have turned into a solid team that can compete with anybody. Philly has done a solid job feasting on lesser teams like the Falcons, Lions or Trevor Siemian-led Saints, and the Eagles get another bad team in Week 13. Zach Wilson hasn't done anything to convince me he's going to give the Eagles a scare, as he's 1-5 against the spread. The Jets also have the worst defense in the league, so I like getting this number under seven points. The Eagles take on the Giants this Sunday, which is a game they should win, while the Jets take on a rejuvenated Texans team as Wilson returns to the starting lineup. 

49ers (-2) at Seahawks

The 49ers have now won two straight by double digits, but face off against a tough opponent in the Vikings this Sunday. I'm not really focused on that matchup, however, because this Week 13 line could grow whether they win or lose. 

I think there's a chance the Seahawks are dead in the water. This defense is the worst in the league if you don't count the Jets, and Russell Wilson appears to still be working his way back from his finger injury. Last week against the Cardinals, the Seahawks were held to 16 first downs and went 2 of 10 on third downs. Seattle has now dropped five out of its past six games and has scored just one touchdown over its past 20 offensive possessions. The Seahawks face off against Washington on "Monday Night Football" this week, and the Football Team is playing well right now. Taylor Heinicke and this reborn Washington defense have won back-to-back games for the first time this season, and the offense had no problem moving the ball against the Panthers' stout defense last Sunday. I'm taking Washington, as the Seahawks could continue their downward spiral.
