Thursday Thanksgiving NFL Betting Tips

The second game of Thanksgiving Thursday comes as the Dallas Cowboys host the Philadelphia Eagles. This is an interesting matchup on paper, but I can see a clear spread winner on the field. It’ll be far from a one sided game, but I feel the number could be larger.

The Cowboys are currently -3 favourites against the Eagles, and it’s a number I expect them to cover. Firstly, this Dallas team was pretty good at messing things up last year. They’d find ways to loss from strong winning positions fairly regularly. They were a train wreck. Now, they’re almost the opposite.

When they get a lead, they look like they probably know how to hold on to it. When they trailed the Giants by 11 at half time, the situation did not look good. The 8-3 Cowboys aren’t exactly desperate for wins, but to lose to the now 3-8 Giants is not a good thing.

They rallied to win the second half by 14 points, thus winning the game by three points. They showed plenty of resilience that wasn’t their last season. Yes, the Giants may suck a little, but the Cowboys still came back.

Dallas has struggled when being asked to cover the spread at home over recent seasons, going just 8-23 as a favourite. That’s a concern, but the Eagles are 2-5ATS on the road. They have a solid record during Week 13, but you can’t read too much in to that.

Sanchez has pretty well lately, and he’s even managed to knock off a few franchise records. My concern is that he hasn’t done anything against anyone fantastic in recent weeks, and this Dallas defence is a different animal.

They were destroyed by the Packers, and made light work of a two win team at home. In fact, the Eagles have yet to beat a team that had a winning record at the time of the meeting.

The third and final game of the weekend comes in San Francisco as two 7-4 teams meet. The Seattle Seahawks are the visitors, and we should round off Thanksgiving with a pretty interesting affair.

The two have created a pretty special rivalry, but more than just bragging rights will be on the line on Thursday. Both teams can move to 8-4, which will be a big point in their seasons. There are a lot of playoff implications.

Both teams are not what they were last season, and both are majorly down on offence. This is the first of two meetings in less than three weeks, and putting down a marker in the first game could be key.

Despite their lacking offence, these sides remain at 1 (Seattle) and 2 (San Fran) in the defensive rankings, so you know what type of game we’re going to get, but it should still be a pretty good watch.
Seattle are 4-0ATS as a dog and 7-3ATS playing on grass. The hosts are 2-5ATS at home and apparently soft on defence after cracking down the game before, as they’re 49ers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous game.

Marshawn Lynch is a key piece for the Hawks and he will play. That said, he’s let than 100% and perhaps out of sync. That could hurt the visitors, but I don’t trust the hosts in what should be a pretty close affair.
