NFL Week 13 weather report: East Coast rain could impact multiple games’ betting odds, lines and props | Sporting News

There is a jammed-packed NFL Sunday for Week 13, and forecasts project rain up and down the East Coast that will likely affect multiple games this weekend. Weather forecasts show that up to eight NFL games may be facing rain. The severity varies, but we will share how the games’ odds might be affected and which games may see the most impact.

NFL weather forecasts Week 13

Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans | 1 p.m. ET

  • Opening betting lines: Colts -2
  • Location: Nissan Stadium, Nashville
  • Forecast: 61 degrees | Rain: 24% | Wind: 10 mph

Live odds for Colts vs. Titans


The spread on this game has been trending back closer to even, and that may be partly because of the weather. The Colts are without Jonathan Taylor, and with about a 40% chance of rain, the Titans’ rushing attack has an edge. If the rain does hit, the two teams will likely go to the run more, which explains why the spread has come back toward the Titans. 

Los Angeles Chargers at New England Patriots | 1 p.m. ET

  • Opening betting lines: Chargers -7.5
  • Location: Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, Mass.
  • Forecast: 50 degrees | Rain: 61% | Wind: 7 mph

Live Odds for Chargers vs. Patriots


With a 40% chance of rain, we could see a lower-scoring game between the Chargers and Patriots. The Chargers started out as over a touchdown favorite, but with inclement weather, the line has moved down, which makes sense as the Chargers are a heavy passing attack team. With a stingy Patriots defense and potential rain, betting on the OVER may be risky.

Atlanta Falcons at New York Jets | 1 p.m. ET

  • Opening betting lines: Falcons -2.5
  • Location: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, N.J. 
  • Forecast: 51 degrees | Rain: 67% | Wind: 7 mph

Live Odds for Falcons vs. Jets


Two teams that struggle to score the football and an elite Jets defense set up for a low-scoring game before any weather-affecting game. Now, with a 50% chance for rain and wind gusts up to 10 MPH, scoring in this matchup could be scarce. The line has not moved much, but this is another contest where betting the OVER could be dangerous, no matter how low it is.

Arizona Cardinals at Pittsburgh Steelers | 1 p.m. ET

  • Opening betting lines: Steelers -6
  • Location: Acrisure Stadium, Pittsburgh
  • Forecast: 56 degrees | Rain: 58% | Wind: 7 mph

Live Odds for Cardinals vs. Steelers


The Cardinals have looked much better with Kyler Murray back at quarterback, but a game against the Steelers’ defense is a tough matchup. Add in a 35% chance of rain that could limit Murray’s scrambling and ability to extend plays, and the Cardinals’ offense faces an uphill battle to put up points against a menacing Steelers defense. 

Miami Dolphins at Washington Commanders | 1 p.m. ET

  • Opening betting lines: Dolphins -9
  • Location: FedExField, Landover, Md.
  • Forecast: 57 degrees | Rain: 41% | Wind: 6 mph

Live Odds for Dolphins vs. Commanders


Two of the most potent offenses in the NFL have an exciting matchup on Sunday. Even with the rain chance at 50%, expect the Dolphins and Commanders to be bold in throwing the ball. If that is the case, it could lead to some sloppy play and more turnovers.

Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers | 4:05 p.m. ET

  • Opening betting lines: Buccaneers -6
  • Location: Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, Fla. 
  • Forecast: 80 degrees | Rain: 24% | Wind: 10 mph

Live Odds for for Panthers vs. Buccaneers


This NFC South Division game already has plenty of intrigue after the Panthers let Frank Reich go this week. Now there could be a wet and muddy game in store after very little precipitation all week. The Panthers’ offense has struggled, and bad field conditions only increase the Buccaneers’ chances of grinding out a win against an inferior opponent. 

San Francisco 49ers at Philadelphia Eagles | 4:25 p.m. ET

  • Opening betting lines: 49ers -1
  • Location: Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia
  • Forecast: 56 degrees | Rain: 51% | Wind: 7 mph

Live Odds for 49ers vs. Eagles


One of the most exciting games of the weekend and a rematch of last season’s NFC Championship has over a 50% chance of rain. With perhaps the best running back in the NFL, the 49ers opened as the favorite in this game, even on the road. The line has moved even further toward San Francisco, which could be a sign that with bad weather expected, the run game will take priority in this matchup.

Kansas City Chiefs at Green Bay Packers | 8:20 p.m. ET

  • Opening betting lines: Chiefs -7
  • Location: Lambeau Field, Green Bay, Wis.
  • Forecast: 38 degrees | Rain/snow: 46% | Wind: 7 mph 

Live Odds for Chiefs vs. Packers


Not only is there a chance for precipitation, but we could also see some snow in this game, with temperatures in the low 30s. The combination of cold temperatures and rain/snow could help Green Bay slow down Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and the Chiefs’ passing attack. Will Taylor Swift come to the Chiefs vs. Packers game? Who knows, but if she does, she might need to bring a winter coat.
