Thanksgiving Day Football Picks

Posted by in NFL Picks on November 27th, 2008 | 3 Comments

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. 3 football games today. None are too intriguing, but let’s see if any games are worth betting on.

TENNESSEE TITANS -11.5 @ DETROIT LIONS

Merell Hodge predicted 31-3 as the final score in this one. The Lions went blow for blow with the Panthers and followed that up by blowing a 17-0 lead to the Bucs, losing 38-20. Assuming Calvin Johnson can pull 2 TDs out of his bag of tricks, the Titans will need more than 24 to cover. The Lions are terrible against the run (ranked 32nd) and that’s what the Titans do best (ranked 9th). I like the Titans to win big. I bought the line to Titans -10 just so they don’t need that extra score. Jeff Fisher will get his team focused after that demoralizing loss to the Jets and I expect the Titans to come out motivated to kick some ass.

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS @ DALLAS COWBOYS -12

The Cowboys offense is back. Terrell Owens has been unleashed. I think the Cowboys win by 2 TDs. The Cowboys should be good for at least 28 points and their defense has been stingy, they should hold the Seahawks to under 14.

ARIZONA CARDINALS @ PHILADELPHIA EAGLES -3

After the Eagles debacles the last two weeks, I can’t recommend taking the Eagles even as an Eagles fan. The Eagles are dead to me. The defense is there, but they have no running game, the offensive line is playing poorly, and they’re forced to throw 80% of the time, which has resulted in tons of turnovers. Hopefully I can witness an Eagles win for the first time in 4 weeks, but the Cardinals make me nervous.

    Yes it is indeed. I only played the Titans and Cowboys. I went up 5 units with those two games. I wish I would have put more on them since I thought they would both be beatings, but I get nervous having to give up double-digit points and hindsight is always 20/20.

    How about them Eagles coming back from the dead and putting up 48 points?

    Nice picks. I also went 3-0 on thanksgiving day. I am very happy to see my eagles put up 48 points. Started McNabb in fantasy also. Cheers.
