It is a week with Thanksgiving soccer upon us Thursday, so I will focus on the 3 NFL games scheduled.
Thanksgiving is the firstThursday Night Football with NFL games scheduled each Turkey Day since 1920.
The mainstay of Thanksgiving Day football is that the Detroit Lions.
Despite this, they have supplied some Thanksgiving moments. Lets flash back to 1997 together with Barry Sanders running roughshod throughout the Bears:
Their very first Thanksgiving match was hosted by Even the Dallas Cowboys and they accompany the Lions ancient game using a kickoff.
When there are a few epic Cowboys games out of Thanksgiving including the Leon Lett play and the Clint Longley comeback, however I have included the 1994 Cowboys game.
Amazing to see this clip. Much to see here. John Gruden as a Packers assistant trainer. Reggie White in the backfield on nearly every play.

Present Cowboys Head Coach Jason Garrett directing a comeback and a Dallas win, to top it off:

DraftKings includes a full plate of staff and player and team props, parlays and specials. Additionally, check out their newstats feature offered for each game.
Its a terrific tool to add to your own home with wonderful trends and information. I have taken a dive at some stats and trends using Draft Kings for all the games of Thursday.
The Lions (3-7-1) have covered the spread in 5 of their last 7 Thanksgiving games.
That said, 2019 was a hard one for the Honolulu Blue and Silver. Beginning QB Mathew Stafford has broken bones in his back and may not return this season.
Back-up Jeff Driskel took for Stafford per week 10 and lost at Chicago in his early start for the Lions. Driskel also reportedly has a sore hamstring and his playing status is present in the atmosphere for Thursday.
The Lions 3rd series option is rookie David Blough that has never taken an NFL snap.
Concerning trends that are betting that are key:
With a Chicago offense thats far from powerful, coupled with the potential of an injured 2nd series or a 3rd string rookie QB confronting the Bears defense, I believe that its worth its function here.
The Cowboys (6-5) will nevertheless be drying after their weight reduction loss to the Patriots at Foxboro on Sunday. They start their final five games of the year with a slender 1-game lead in the NFC East on the Eagles.
The Cowboys have been 2-2 at home this season and face an upstart Bills (8-3) team that has exceeded all expectations this year.
The Bills are offered by a fierce defense which has enabled the 3rd fewest points in the NFL (1. Patriots; two. 49ers) and have obtained solid performances from 2nd year QB Josh Allen and ageless RB Frank Gore.
A notable historical trend is that the Cowboys are 1-3 against the spread in the last 4 Thanksgiving games along with also the entire world has gone OVER in 3 of their previous four (4) Dallas Thanksgiving Day Games.
The DraftKings Sportsbook stats hub suitably summarizes the 2019 functionality in a succinct, side-by-side comparison of each team:
There is additionally a drop-down menu which allows the bettor to pick tendencies since 2010 achieved by DK!
After the Saints shocked having a the Saints and Falcons period a divisional rematch.
While logic could point into an offensive shootout if these two Dome clubs play with each other, recent history indicates as 4 of the previous five meetings have gone under the total.
For those that prefer to isolate and wager quarters and/or halves, DK includes a great feature in their own portal site that isolates the performance of a team .
Below, I have emphasized the quarter as the Beginning of this 2018 season by quarter performance of the Saints and Falcons:
There are some really fantastic features available on the DraftKings stats portal which are worth checking out prior to placing your bets.
While none of those three (3) neighborhood teams would be playing on Thanksgiving, theyre all in action this Sunday. The Jets will attempt to win their 4th straight game when they visit the winless Bengals at Cincinnati.
The Giants will play with with their next consecutive NFC North opponent if they host the Green Bay Packers as well as given their performances at home over the last 2 months, the Eagles will welcome a change as they visit with the Miami Dolphins.
Here are the local gambling lines of Thursday day via DraftKings:
Following the 3 Thanksgiving games, Sundays schedule attribute eight (8) 1PM begins and three (3) 4PM window matches. The BYE months are finished.
I had a bounce back last week going 2-1. The Broncos failed to bounce back in week 11 in their half meltdown in Minnesota and so were totally dominated by the Bills.
The Jets won convincingly, as well as the Steelers won a conflict of field goals and punts using a simple UNDER the total from the Bengals.??
Week 2-1, Season YTD 15-20-1
Here are my selections for your 3 Thanksgiving Day matches:??
This total line has shrunk lower throughout the week. The Bears managed just 19 points vs the Giants along with the Lions were able to score only 1 touchdown vs the redskins last week.
Insert around the Lions QB situation and a Bears protection that is fierce and the under almost looks like stealing cash.
The Bills have adopted aWhy Not Us strategy because they gear up to the last five games of the year. Theyve a lead in the AFC Wild card race, although at 8-3 they trail the Patriots by two games in the division.
The stout defense that will confront a Dallas offense has looked both anemic and potent at different points of the year. I will look at the consistency of the Bills to help keep this game and also to pay the spread against the Cowboys.??
The Falcons teased their supporters with road wins against the Saints and Panthers only to return home Sunday to shed to the Buccaneers.
They have their hands full to the Falcons with a Saints team searching for revenge from their week 10 loss at home.
I cant see the Saints being beaten by the Falcons this year in precisely exactly the season and look for a Saints triumph on Sunday.??
