Thanksgiving dinner and NFL football might not seem like a great combination, but don’t tell that to football fans. The National Football League will have three games on the schedule for Thanksgiving Day, and all three of them should be terrific matchups. You’ll want to put a little money on these games to make them even more interesting, so head over to DraftKings for its Thanksgiving Day Parlay before they begin on Turkey Day.
Let’s look at each game and make a pick for each game.
Chicago Bears -1.0 at Detroit Lions
A pair of NFC North rivals will kick off the action on Thanksgiving Day, and this might be the worst game of the day. The Chicago Bears have been terrible on offense this season, but their defense continues to dominate. The Detroit Lions has been horrible on defense for much of the season, and they are without a ton of weapons on offense. Chicago beat Detroit just a few weeks ago, and they should do it again in this game.
Buffalo Bills at Dallas Cowboys -7.0
The Dallas Cowboys are seven-point favorites at home on Thursday afternoon, but they have a real challenge on their hands. The Buffalo Bills are 8-3 on the season, and quarterback Josh Allen continues to improve with each week.
Dallas failed to score a touchdown in its Week 12 loss to the New England Patriots, and consistency has been a major problem for this team. The Cowboys are in danger of missing the playoffs, and they need a win in this one. Dallas will find a way to pull it out, but it’s going to be a battle.
New Orleans Saints -7.0 at Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta looked like it had figured things out in recent weeks, but it got blasted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. New Orleans has looked pedestrian of late, but it managed to get a win in Week 12.
Atlanta will try to score points to keep up with New Orleans, but that’s a dangerous strategy to employ. The Falcons have just three wins on the season, and there is a reason for that, though one of them came just over two weeks ago against the Saints.
Look for the Saints offense to light up the scoreboard in this game and blow out the Falcons in Atlanta.
As if you needed another reason to be thankful on Thanksgiving Day, take a look at this Thanksgiving Day Parlay promotion from DraftKings:
This year, we’ll be offering a risk-free Thanksgiving parlay up to $100 for new users. To participate, a new user must make a bet on each of the three football games on Thanksgiving Day and combine them into a parlay. If the parlay hits, the user is paid out as normal. However, if the parlay busts, the user is given a free bet matching their initial stake (up to $100).
This promotion is quite simple, and you just need to combine your three picks into one parlay bet. The parlay pick to use for this promotion is the Chicago Bears -1.0, Dallas Cowboys -7.0, and New Orleans Saints -7.0.
