Week 12 Thanksgiving Thursday Betting – Can Anyone Stop New Orleans?

One of the best rivalries in the NFL resumes on Thanksgiving night when the white hot New Orleans Saints host the Atlanta Falcons. For the Falcons, it’s a must-win game. Atlanta won’t catch the Saints in the NFC South Division, but they still have an outside shot at a wildcard. To keep hope alive, they have to overcome a huge Week 12 Thanksgiving Thursday betting line where they're being served up as big underdogs. New Orleans must simply do what they’ve [...]

Scott Shapiro’s Thanksgiving Day NFL Thoughts and Selections

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I am still catching my breath from the shootout in the Coliseum where the Los Angeles Rams outdueled Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in the highest scoring contest in Monday Night Football history 54-51. This year I am thankful for a lot of things, but the Eagles offense is not one of them. Philadelphia let me down big time when scoring just 7 points last week to keep my Week 11 “Top Play” UNDER the [...]

Week 12 Thanksgiving Football Betting – WAS vs. DAL -7.5

It’s impossible to downplay the Week 12 Thanksgiving Football betting battle between the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys. With a victory, Dallas could tie Washington atop the division.

Jerry Jones then made the biggest sin of all, trading a Round 1 pick for an underachieving wide [...]

Because of how the Lions battled hard in the second half, Bears fans should feel some trepidation as their team heads east to Marshall Mathers’ home town.

NFL Week 11 Sunday Night Football Betting – Chicago Favored at -3.0

The Vikings and Bears clash on NFL Week 11 Sunday Night Football betting with a ton at stake. The Bears are in first place in the NFC North by only a half-game. Only Minnesota’s Week 2 tie against the Packers separates the Bears and Vikings. Minnesota won both matchups last season, beating the Bears 20-17 in Week 5, and 23-10 in Week 17, but because this is the first game this season between the two divisional rivals, the Vikings could [...]
