Division leaders will clash on Sunday afternoon when the Seattle Seahawks play host to the New York Giants as heavy 10-point favourites on the Week 13 NFL odds at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.

Both these teams returned to the top of their respective divisions with wins last weekend, but uncertainty surrounds the availability of injured New York quarterback Daniel Jones ahead of Sunday afternoon's matchup at Lumen Field.

The Seahawks did themselves and New York a big favor with Monday night's 23-17 victory in Philadelphia. With the win, the Seahawks ended a three-game straight-up road losing streak while moving past Los Angeles back into first place in the NFC West. Seattle's victory also lifted the Giants past the Eagles to the top of the NFC East, where they sit alongside Washington with a 4-7 SU record. However, the Giants are expected to turn to veteran backup quarterback Colt McCoy on Sunday after Jones suffered a hamstring injury that forced him to miss practice on Wednesday.

The Giants have emerged as a reliable wager this season with the team covering the spread at sports betting sites in seven of 11 contests to date, including a 3-0 ATS run while listed as underdogs by at least a touchdown. However, Seattle has been dominant at home this season, going 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS, and sports a dominating 5-1 SU record in six home meetings with the Giants since 1981.

Elsewhere on the NFL Week 13 odds, the Rams will try to keep pace with the Seahawks in the division standings as they visit the Arizona Cardinals as 3-point favourites in a crucial NFC West clash. The Eagles look to rebound as they visit the NFC North-leading Green Bay Packers as 8.5-point underdogs, while Washington battles the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday Night Football as 9-point underdogs.

The Rams ride a six-game SU win streak against Arizona, including a 5-1 ATS run, according to the OddsShark NFL Database, but are a middling 3-3 SU on the road this season, including outright losses in two road games as betting favourites. The Cardinals have struggled to score points during their two-game SU slide and are winless ATS in four outings, but have averaged 37.5 points per game in consecutive outright wins as home underdogs.

The Eagles have lost three straight, scoring just 17 points in each of those contests, and now trail New York and Washington by a half-game. However, they face a Packers squad that has covered just twice in their past nine games at home while favoured by eight or more points.
