There are three NFL games on Thanksgiving and plenty of opportunities to get in on the action! The Bills and Lions kick off the holiday action followed by an NFC East rivalry between the Giants and Cowboys. The nightcap features the Patriots traveling to Minnesota to take on the Vikings. With so many great teams/games spread throughout the day, fans will have plenty of chances to watch some of the NFL’s best players. Here are a few player props worth considering for Turkey Day.
Josh Allen over 41.5 rushing yards (-125)
The Lions have allowed a league-leading 42 rushing yards per game to opposing QBs including 140 to Justin Fields, 90 to Jalen Hurts, and 50 to Daniel Jones just last week. Allen has been dealing with a UCL issue, but that will make him even more likely to run on this generous Detroit defense. Allen is averaging 48 rushing yards per game this year and 7.1 carries per game.
Stefon Diggs over 90.5 receiving yards (-120)
The Lions are allowing the fourth-most yards to opposing wideouts this year, and Stefon Diggs is Allen’s favorite target. Diggs has a 29 percent target share for the Bills (fourth in the NFL) and he’s averaging 103.3 receiving yards per game. He was held down last week, no way it happens again this week vs. this Lions defense in a Thanksgiving Day feature.
Dalton Schultz over 38.5 receiving yards (-125)
Schultz has exceeded this prop in four of five games played with Dak this season, with last week being the only outlier, and that was due to game script. Schultz saw the same amount of targets as CeeDee Lamb last week (5) and he’s the clear No. 2 pass catcher for Dallas. The Giants have allowed 57 yards per game to opposing TEs.
Ezekiel Elliott anytime TD (+110)
Elliott leads the Cowboys with eight goal-line looks, he’s a tough runner, it’s a favorable matchup, and he’s the guy who will be punching it in on Thursday. Elliott scored twice last week, one of which was after teammate Tony Pollard failed twice to punch it in from the one-yard line. Take the plus money.
