Best NFL Thanksgiving Bets to Make
Chicago Bears (3-7) at vs. Detroit Lions (0-9-1)
In this matchup, the Bears are the obvious favorite at -3.5. According to NFL News, expect to see Andy Dalton at the helm as Justin Fields is on the injury list. This is a tough one to call and we recommend placing a modest bet on this game.
Bet on the Bears at -3.5 as we predict the Bears will win with a final score of 24-20.
Las Vegas Raiders (5-5) at Dallas Cowboys (7-3)
AT&T Stadium will host the Thanksgiving Day NFL game between the Las Vegas Raiders and the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys are the favorite with a -7.5 spread and may or may not become a true contender this season. Either way, they are one of the better teams in the NFC and should win without a hitch. However, can they cover the spread?
Bet on the Raiders at +7.5 as we predict a final score of 27-24 with a win for Dallas.
Buffalo Bills (6-4) at New Orleans Saints (5-5)
According to this Bookie PPH blog, the last Thanksgiving matchup should be fun with the Bills as a -6.5 favorite. Buffalo is second in the AFC East, a half-game behind New England following a 41-15 loss to the Colts. In addition, the Saints are also playing following a 40-29 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday. New Orleans is playing without Jameis Winston and Michael Tomas.
Bet on the Bills at -6.5 as we predict a win for the Bills with a final score of 27-17.
