Feast on Three Bets for NFL on Thanksgiving With Plus Money Odds

Three NFL games on Thanksgiving and we're cooking up a three-team teaser bet for the Bills/Lions, Cowboys/Giants, and Patriots/Vikings

Gobble! Gobble!

What’s better than football on Thanksgiving? Winning money while watching football on Thanksgiving!

Since 2004, favorites on Turkey Day are 43-8 SU and 35-16 ATS.

Through 11 weeks of the 2022 NFL season, underdogs continue to lead the way posting an 89-69-6 Against The Spread (ATS) (56.3 percent) record.

Sharp bettors in Vegas continue to heavily invest in teaser wagers, looking to manipulate point spreads. On Thursday, we will follow their lead backing two home teams and supporting one low-scoring game at odds of +130.

In this type of investment, bettors are afforded the opportunity to use several (two or more) teams combined into one “exotic bet”, shifting the line in your favor. There are three main NFL teaser offerings readily available at every sportsbook: 6, 6.5 and 7 points. The more points you use on the teaser the lower the payout will be, however the more teams you include in the teaser bet the higher the payout will be.

Lions +16.5 vs. Bills

The Lions, who have won three consecutive games both SU and ATS over the Packers, Bears and Giants, will look to end a streak of futility on Thanksgiving. Detroit, who owns a 37-43-2 (.462) record, has lost five consecutive games (0-5 SU, 2-3 ATS) on Turkey Day dating back to 2017. Detroit, listed as underdogs by oddsmakers in nine out of 10 games, has thrived in that role posting a 6-3 ATS mark over those contests. In the first leg of our ticket, we will push the Lions up to more than two-touchdown ‘dogs!

Cowboys -2.5 vs NY Giants

In this bet, we will target the only divisional rivalry on Thanksgiving Day. The NFC East battle between the Cowboys and Giants finds a heavy 9.5-point spread. Dallas, who is 10-1 SU and 9-2 ATS over their last 11 meetings with Big Blue, beat New York 23-16 back in Week 3 as one-point road underdogs. Instead of having to lay nearly double digits, in this wager we push Dallas, who is 4-0 ATS over their last four games at AT&T Stadium, down to only 2.5-point favorites.

Patriots/Vikings UNDER 49.5

In the final leg of a ticket, we will attack the prime-time showdown between the Patriots and Vikings. Minnesota saw its seven-game winning streak snapped last week with a crushing 40-3 beatdown courtesy of the Cowboys. The Vikings who are 4-1 SU at home this season, will face a New England club that is 5-1 SU and ATS over their last six games. This game has the lowest point total of the three holiday matchups and for good reason. Instead of needing to stay under 42.5 points, we will drive the total up to 49.5 and back the under in a low-scoring affair.
