Losing streaks will be on the line when the Dallas Cowboys visit the New Orleans Saints on Thursday night as 4.5-point road favourites on the NFL odds for Week 13 at sportsbooks monitored by

Dallas is coming off a 36-33 overtime loss to the visiting Las Vegas Raiders on U.S. Thanksgiving, and has now lost two straight games going into Thursday night's matchup at Caesars Superdome.

In addition to marking their third straight-up loss in four outings, last week's defeat also marked the Cowboys' fifth straight loss when playing on a Thursday. The Cowboys scored 16 or fewer points in two of their three recent defeats, however they continue to hold a two-game lead atop the NFC East standings.

The Saints saw their straight-up slide extended to four games with last week's 31-6 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Thursday night. The Saints have now lost by a combined margin of 36 points in their past two games, and have won and covered the spread at betting sites just once in four home dates this season.

Elsewhere on the Week 13 NFL odds, the battle for the top of the AFC West heats up on Sunday night as the Kansas City Chiefs host the Denver Broncos as 10-point chalk. The Week 13 schedule comes to a close on Monday night with the Bills taking on the visiting New England Patriots as slim 2.5-point favourites in a battle for first place in the AFC East.

The Chiefs have put a shaky start behind them with four straight wins, including three straight on home turf at Arrowhead Stadium. Although the Chiefs scored 20 or fewer points in three of their recent wins, they have surrendered fewer than 12 points per game during that stretch, spawning a steady 5-1 run for the UNDER. Winners in three of four, the Broncos have been a defensive force on the road this season, allowing just 17.2 points per game.

The Patriots arrive in Buffalo riding a six-game SU win streak that leaves them with a narrow lead atop the division, and they also enjoy a steady 8-1 SU run in their past nine road dates with the Bills, according to the OddsShark NFL Database. Buffalo dominated in last week's win over the Saints, but has failed to tally consecutive wins since Week 5.

Elsewhere, an AFC North clash highlights the Sunday afternoon schedule in Week 13 as the Baltimore Ravens visit the Pittsburgh Steelers as 4.5-point chalk. Earlier in the day, the Detroit Lions will try to snap a 15-game winless slide as they host the Minnesota Vikings as 7-point underdogs.
