NFL Week 12 Betting Parlay – Thanksgiving Edition


NFL Week 12 Betting Parlay – Thanksgiving EditionNFL odds for week 12 are getting some early action at sportsbooks this week. Why? Gobble gobble – it’s Thanksgiving week. That means we’ll see three games this Thursday. No time to waste in our NFL picks, is there?

Packers (No line) over Lions

Due to question marks over Matthew Stafford’s clavicle injury, the sportsbook line isn’t posted yet for the Packers/Lions game, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make up your mind yet. Even if the Lions get Stafford back in the lineup, even though Green Bay just lost cornerback Al Harris for the season, Detroit still faces the NFL’s No. 3 overall defense. The Packers have battled tougher foes than Detroit and survived. Though the Pack got caught looking past the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this season, I think they’ll win this reason for that exact reason; they’re unlikely to make the same mistake twice. Look for Aaron Rodgers to have an even bigger game than normal, as the Lions don’t pressure the passer very well.

Raiders +13.5 over Cowboys

Tony Romo and the Cowboys offense are entering the time of year when they often tank – especially Romo. He could barely get anything going against Washington last week and the Raiders actually have a respectable pass defense. While I don’t see the Raiders totally shocking Dallas the way they did Cincy last week, I think they can keep this game within two touchdowns. Over the last three seasons, the Cowboys are 3-6 against the spread when favored by 10 or more points.

Giants -6.5 over Broncos

The Broncos’ ship is beyond sinking right now. They’ve dropped four straight games, their quarterback is battling injury and their skill players are getting into sideline spats. NFL betting players need to crunch the numbers carefully to understand why Denver isn’t recovering from its slump any time soon; the Broncos have allowed 174 or more rushing yards in three straight games. Their stout run defense isn’t stout anymore and the Giants’ power running game can exploit that problem. While the Giants may not totally romp at home, they’re a good bet to win convincingly.
