The NFL graces us with three Thanksgiving Day games and we have picks for all three of them.
Chicago Bears (-4) at Detroit Lions (over/under 37)
The Bears are hanging on by a thread if they want to make the playoffs. They will need to run the table and get some help. The probability of that happening isn’t large but it’s better than the Lions. Detroit has no chance of making the playoffs and they’re coming off a loss to Washington. Oye.
Chicago Bears -4
Buffalo Bills (+6.5) at Dallas Cowboys (over/under 47)
Jerry Jones the GM has been the story all week. He’s put the coaching staff on notice. He’s frustrated because he feels like Jerry Jones the GM has given head coach Jason Garrett everything he needs and more to be a Super Bowl contender.
As strange as this sounds, Jones is right.
Buffalo Bills +6.5
New Orleans Saints (-7) at Atlanta Falcons (over/under 48.5)
The Falcons have woken up. Sure, it’s too late to the make the playoffs but they’ve become a pain in the butt to play.
The Saints for the best record in the NFC. If they want to get there, winning in Atlanta is a must.
New Orleans Saints -7
