Week 12 Outlook We Start with Thanksgiving Day Matchups
Thanksgiving football has arrived, with three games kicking off the Thursday slate. That is one of the best weeks of the year for football bettors because of the extra action. Last week, things went as expected, with a few major exceptions.
Here is your outlook for week 12.
Thanksgiving Football Game 1 with the Chicago Bears vs Detroit Lions Pick
The Detroit Lions do not have a quarterback, which makes their Thanksgiving Game against the Bears concerning. Chicago has a decent defense which should give the Lions trouble, especially if Jared Goff is not under center.
The Lions will open as a 3.5 point underdog at home, and 69% of bettors like this side of the line. Although their offense is lackluster, it could be a long afternoon if Justin Fields gets going.
Detroit is 6-4 ATS even though they are 0-9-1 overall. The Bears are 3-7 and 4-6 ATS. Will Thanksgiving be the first win of the season for the Lions?
