Thursday’s NFL Thanksgiving lineup is set to share center stage in homes around the world. The usual Holiday Games participants (Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions) are back for another year, with the Lions taking on the Chicago Bears to start the day and the Cowboys meeting the Las Vegas Raiders in the middle of the slate. Additionally, the New Orleans Saints and Buffalo Bills will wrap up the Thanksgiving lineup and take us into the holiday weekend.
The money coming in suggests that most punters side with the favorites to win these games. At Tipico Sportsbook, 54% of tickets have the Bears on the money line, 73% with the Bills on the money line and 90% bet the money line on the Cowboys. Outside of the Bears-Lions game – which has a 50/50 bet slip on the spread – bettors rely on the favorites from the last two games to cover the spread, and only expect the Saints game. -Bills fall under the total points.
Regarding the key injuries that could shape decision making; Jared Goff is playing and Justin Fields is not during the Detroit-Chicago game. Dak Prescott and the Cowboys will host the Raiders minus CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper, Prescott’s No. 1 and 2 receivers. Finally, Alvin Kamara is OUT and Mark Ingram doubts he will play against the Bills tonight.
