Thanksgiving will see a special triad of games that will caught the attention of football fans. First, the Minnesota Vikings will play their second game of the season vs. the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day. It will be Minnesota’s first Thanksgiving Day contest since beating the Dallas Cowboys 27-10 back in 2000.
The second game in Thanksgiving will feature two of the most heated rivals in the league: The Washington Redskins and the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys will have the home field advantage for this game, reason why they will enter the game as betting favorites. The last time these two NFC foes played against each other on Thanksgiving, Robert Griffin III threw for four touchdowns in an 18-28 win in 2012.
Thanksgiving action will close with a bang, as the Steelers and Colts square off in one of the most attractive games in Week 12. The Pittsburgh Steelers are one of the most solid teams in the AFC and one of the top favorites to win Super Bowl LI. On the other hand, the Colts need to demonstrate that they are a worthy dark horse pick for this season, home-field advantage would play on their favor, beating Pittsburgh is never an easy task.
In addition to these three must watch games, Week 12 is packed with many quality games to bet on. The list includes the Bengals vs. Ravens, Carolina Panthers vs. Oakland Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs vs. Denver Broncos, New England Patriots vs. New York Jets, and the Monday Night game between the Green Bay Packers and the Philadelphia Eagles.
