The Pick Six: Thanksgiving Edition
Coming off a somewhat profitable Week 12 thanks to this Seahawks moneyline, it is time for your yearly tradition of ignoring my loved ones, beating food in my head and gambling on Thanksgiving NFL football.
At a special version of The Pick Six for Thanksgiving Day, I’ve decided to open around props for some of my selections and along also my achievement on Twitter using touchdown scorers, you know I need to incorporate a few of those bets. Before tailing fair warning that touchdown scorer props are volatile and should never be seen as locks bear that in mind.
This year’s Thanksgiving masterpiece just isn’t as enticing as last season but Odds Shark will be live-streaming coverage of this Lions-Bears with Guys and Bets and I’ll be a part of this action and performing drive-by-drive stakes for the people at home.
Here we proceed with The Pick Six: Week 13 – Thanksgiving Day Edition!

This line is really a joke, right? The Lions are giving 3.5-points together with all the QB tandem of Jeff Driskel and David Blough??? Driskel may not play Blough may get his first match action contrary to a Bears defense that is ferocious. Not a Terrific scenario for the Lions.
Of the Bears’ five wins this season, just one has been decided by 3 points or less when they defeat the Broncos in Week 2. When these teams faced for Thanksgiving, it required a last-minute pick-six out of Bears CB Eddie Jackson to seal the cover which was contrary to rookie Matthew Stafford. Considering Lions’ quarterbacks have been sacked 11 times I fully expect a great deal of Lions’ turnovers and could be in-game gambling it on each Detroit push.
Together with 12 grabs and 20 aims in the past two games, Anthony Miller is beginning to turn into a receiving option that is trusted for the Bears. Was banged up that made it difficult to poach aims from the likes of Taylor Gabriel or even Allen Robinson and he has to capture a touchdown this season.
In just two matches a year versus the Lions and that said, he caught seven touchdowns last year that he had nine catches on a single touchdown and 10 goals. In +250, the worth is decent the receiving choices for Mitch Trubisky are dwindling and because WR Taylor Gabriel isn’t expected to play.

Two defenses which have been fairly strong this year, this complete feels a tad high and feels like it should be nearer to 43 or 42. Neither team is allowing more than 20 points per game this season and the Cowboys’ defense was demonstrated up vs winning teams, holding the Saints to 12 points, the Patriots to 13 points and the Eagles to 10 points, who at that time had a winning record.
From Week 5 onward, with all their past eight matches with scored 20 points or 26, the Bills offense has been proven to sputter. I believe Cole Beasley will grab a TD and possibly QB Josh Allen runs one in however there will not be sufficient crime in this match to surpass 47 points.
Obtaining a touchdown Cole Beasley is now my favourite touchdown scorer select for Thanksgiving. He’s second on the team in goals supporting John Brown and that I totally expect Cowboys CB Byron Jones each game to shadows Brown.
If the Bills enter the red zone, then they are sometimes pretty predictable with Josh Allen and Frank Gore conducts however they’ve shown they’ll throw to Beasley inside this situation as all four of their scores are deep in enemy territory. The value is fantastic for Beasley contemplating Brown’s odds are in +140 and he’s the No.1 choice. Also,??while I hate using inspiration for handicapping, the Cowboy payback angle is in drama.
Bills vs Cowboys Game Center
I expect this match to be much different than the last matchup at which the Falcons stunned the Saints and limited them to nine points, which is the weakest offensive output by New Orleans with Drew Brees at dusk because Week 12 in 2015 vs the Texans.
The Falcons’ defense also has seemed to have regressed to the standard after giving up 35 points into the Bucs and has??allowed??27 points a game this year. Last year’s total for this Thanksgiving matchup had been set at 60 and the Saints are well known for the best place in the NFC therefore I visit them scoring at least 30 points, which is excellent for the OVER.?? I think it can still set up at least 20 points in home versus a division rival and also still think in the offense of Atlanta.
Catching a touchdown in four of the Saints’ past five games, Jared Cook has a resurgence at New Orleans, which will be unconventional because the Saints have not correctly used a tight end within their crime since they traded Jimmy Graham. That??lone game during the last five that Cook didn’t catch a touchdown was Falcons but he still had 10 targets with six grabs and 74 yards.
It is rare to find a heavily-used Saints’ offensive player at acceptable chances so dependent on the current history along with the value at +200,” Cook is hard to pass up in this scenario.
For the bettors, in case you’re on the lookout to get a touchdown scorer in this game, take QB Drew Brees at +1200. He has yet to rush one in this season but he had four scores a year involving two rushing scores when these clubs met at Atlanta in Week 3 last season.
