NFL Picks: Thanksgiving Parlay (Wk 12)

NFL Betting – Thanksgiving Day Parlay


NFL odds are seeing action a little earlier than normal this week – and so are supermarkets, as we’re stocking up for Thanksgiving. Before our usual Friday parlay, we have a special one just for the three Thursday games this week.

Try this parlay and have a great holiday.

PACKERS (-10.5) over LIONS

The Packers have burned us twice on big spreads this season – first against Cincinnati and then against Tampa Bay – but I still think they’re good NFL betting picks to cover the 10.5-point spread in Detroit. A lot has changed for the Pack over the last few weeks. Aaron Rodgers has put last season’s late-game struggles behind him and found a way to close out wins over the last couple of weeks. His 19:5 touchdown-to-interception ratio is simply amazing considering how many sacks he’s taken this year (43 in 10 games after taking 34 in 16 games last year). Facing a Lions “D” that only has 18 sacks on the year, Rodgers will have more time to throw than normal; that puts him in line for his best game of the season. Even without Al Harris and Aaron Kampmann, both of whom succumbed to season-ending injuries last week, Green Bay’s No. 3 overall defense can handle a Lions team that likely won’t have Matt Stafford (shoulder) back in time for the game.

RAIDERS (+13.5) over COWBOYS

Uh-oh. Tony Romo is creeping toward that special time of year when he starts to tank. Usually, it doesn’t start until December – November is his best statistical month – but he couldn’t muster much offense at all versus the lowly Redskins last week. Against good pass defenses in three consecutive weeks (Eagles, Packers, Redskins), Romo has just three touchdown passes. NFL Picks: Parlay Of The Week As bad as the Raiders are, they defend the pass pretty well, so Romo may not have an easy day. Even if Bruce Gradkowski doesn’t repeat last week’s magic against the Bengals, he may do just enough to keep the Raiders within two touchdowns. Pick the Cowboys to win but not cover.

GIANTS (-6.5) over BRONCOS

Sports betting fans shouldn’t give up on the Giants just yet; they showed last week in an overtime win over Atlanta that they still have plenty of fight left. Injuries to the secondary and linebacking corps are the only real obstacles for the Giants to overcome; they still defend the pass well, run the ball well and usually get a good enough performance from Eli Manning to win. Against a freefalling Broncos team that has allowed at least 174 rushing yards in three straight games, Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw should have big days. The Giants will also pressure whoever starts between Chris Simms and Kyle Orton. Expect the Broncos’ slide to continue as they kiss their Super Bowl odds goodbye.
