Here are some NFL bets that jump out in Week 12’s Thanksgiving games on DraftKings Sportsbook.
I like Detroit and Washington outright on Thanksgiving, but these are some messy games. I’d prefer to play it safe and tease these all the way up to 10.
The Texans have a great QB, but are being overvalued here off of a home win over the Patriots. Beating the Patriots seems to still mean something in the betting market, and it shouldn’t. The Texans’ only two other wins are over the Jags, so being a road favorite is pretty odd. The Lions aren’t at full strength, but should be able to keep this one in single digits at home on a short week.
Washington annihilated Dallas in the first matchup of the season, although Andy Dalton didn’t play. Still, this line is inflated from a Cowboys’ win last week. The Vikings were trending in the right direction, but they’re still pretty bad. I’m not putting much weight in that. I think Washington’s defensive line dominates again and gets another win here as a road dog.
Swift’s rushing prop was one of my favorite plays last week before we even saw the number, which never ended up happening.
