On Thanksgiving it’s important to take a moment and be grateful for all the things that bring us joy like football, gambling and the one year anniversary of Mark Sanchez’s butt fumble.
Green Bay Packers At Detroit Lions
A great NFC North match-up on Thanksgiving Day…if only John Madden were alive to see it. Wait what? The Green Bay Packers have struggled to find a consistent offense with the injury to Aaron Rodgers, who is out again this week. Detroit has struggled as well, but Megatron‘s knee is almost 100% and Matt Flynn is no match for Matt Stafford. Much like your drunk uncle the Green Bay Packers will be predictably disappointing on Thanksgiving.
Oakland Raiders At Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys have won back to back games only once this year and a lot of that credit goes to Philadelphia Eagles’ third-string QB Matt Barkley. They’re coming off a win against the New York Giants and are primed for a let-down game against the feisty Oakland Raiders. Meanwhile the Oakland Raiders are like Clifford, an awesome big dog, going 3-1 ATS when getting 7 – 13.5 points.
Pittsburgh Steelers At Baltimore Ravens
God bless the NFL for giving us a reason to stay up past 6pm on Thanksgiving. In the past 10 meetings between the Steelers and Ravens, eight have been decided by exactly three points. Both teams need this game to keep their faint playoff hopes alive and the game is shaping up to once again be decided by a field goal. Just be thankful Ben Roethlisberger isn’t dating your sister and take the points.
Prosperous Prop Bets
First scoring play – DET vs GB
DET FG (+325)
David Aker’s leg is so good you’re dad has already called dibs on it.
Last team to score – OAK vs DAL
The Cowboys will set the table, but leave it up to the Raiders to take out the garbage late.
