Here’s some insight on the three turkey day games that are featured in this one-time promo:
Thanksgiving NFL odds
Chicago Bears @ Detroit Lions
Here are the best Bears vs. Lions odds at Illinois online sportsbooks:
This will be a perfect game to play in the background while you greet distant relatives and prepare food, because there won’t be much entertainment value.
The Lions (0-9-1) and the Bears (3-7) game will be ugly, with the Bears trotting out backup quarterback Andy Dalton and the Lions starter Jared Goff is questionable, leaving quarterbacking duties to Tim Boyle.
This battle of the basement dwellers in the NFC North won’t feature high-flying offense or any playoff implications. Both teams average only 16 points per game and if Boyle starts, it could have a big effect on the over/under. Boyle threw for 77 yards and two interceptions in his NFL debut last week vs the Cleveland Browns.
Las Vegas Raiders @ Detroit Cowboys:
Las Vegas has dealt with some very serious off-the-field issues this season. Those problems seem to have transferred to the field as the Raiders have lost by an average of 18 points in their recent three-game losing skid.
The Cowboys sit on top of the NFC East and are fighting for a first-round playoff bye. After a disappointing 19-9 loss at Arrowhead Stadium to the Kansas City Chiefs, Dallas will be in a familiar spot with bounce-back potential.
Due to the nature of the promotion, it’s worth looking at the biggest favorite of the day, since your team of choice simply needs to win (not cover) in order for the bet to cash. As of now, the Cowboys are the biggest favorite on the Thanksgiving slate.
Buffalo Bills @ New Orleans Saints:
Buffalo has been inconsistent lately after a hot 4-1 start to the season. Since then, they’re 2-3 with the lowlight coming in a road loss to the 2-8 Jacksonville Jaguars.
New Orleans has struggled since losing quarterback Jameis Winston to a season-ending knee injury, going 0-3 with backup Trevor Siemian taking his place.
The one thing each team has done consistently is score, with the Bills averaging 29 points per game and the Saints averaging 25.
