Instead of one game on Thursday Night Football, Thanksgiving Day brings three matchups this Thursday. The action starts at 12:30 PM ET at Ford Field where the Detroit Lions welcome the Chicago Bears in the NFC North showdown. The Buffalo Bills visit the Dallas Cowboys in the afternoon, while the Atlanta Falcons welcome the New Orleans in primetime. A thrilling Thursday is upon us, so we’ve prepared the best prop bets for all three Thanksgiving matchups.
Thanksgiving Day Football Game Info
Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions
Time: Thursday, November 28th @ 12:30 PM ET
Location: Detroit, Michigan
Weather: 37 F, Indoor Stadium
Spread: Bears -4
MoneyLine: -210 | +175
Bears at Lions Prop Bets
- Alternative Point Spread – Chicago Bears -2.5 (-188)
The Lions’ season is already ruined. They are without Matthew Stafford, while the Lions’ defense is among the worst in the league. On the other side, the Bears desperately need a win here to stay in the playoff race. Their defense should be too much for Jeff Driskel and the Lions’ offense. With the Bears in a must-win situation and the Lions on a four-game losing streak, take Chicago to win by at least a field goal. The Lions are 0-6 ATS in their last six games, but they will push hard against division rivals at home.
- Allen Robinson Receiving Yards – Over 66.5 (-120)
Detroit’s passing defense has been terrible all season long. The Lions are 30th in the league in passing yards allowed per game (275.5), so even Mitch Trubisky should dominate them. Allen Robinson is Trubisky’s main target, and he had six catches for 131 yards against the Giants in Week 12. Robinson has racked up 67 receiving yards or more in five of his last eight outings. Look after him against the banged-up Lions’ secondary.
Buffalo Bills at Dallas Cowboys
Time: Thursday, November 28th @ 4:30 PM ET
Location: Arlington, Texas
Weather: 47 F, Showers, Retractable Roof
Spread: Cowboys -7
MoneyLine: +275 | -290
Bills at Cowboys Prop Bets
- Alternative Point Spread – Buffalo Bills +10.0 (-163)
The Cowboys are dominating teams with a losing record, but they are only 1-6 ATS in the last seven contests against a team with a winning record. The 8-3 Bills are overachieving, for sure, but their defense should make this game interesting to watch. Also, the Bills are 5-0-1 ATS in their last six outings away from home and are 4-1 ATS in their previous five road games against a team with a winning home record. I think the Bills won’t lose by more than 10 points.
- TD Scorer Anytime – Josh Allen (+110)
The Cowboys allowed 22 touchdowns this season, and ten of those came on the ground. Only nine teams surrendered more rushing touchdowns than the Cowboys. It is a great opportunity for the Bills’ QB Josh Allen to score on his own. Allen ran for four touchdowns over his last four games, missing to score only against Denver last week. Josh loves to take responsibility, and he already has seven rushing touchdowns this season.
New Orleans at Atlanta Falcons
Time: Thursday, November 28th @ 8:20 PM ET
Location: Atlanta, Georgia
Weather: 50 F, Cloudy, Retractable Roof
Spread: Saints -7
MoneyLine: -300 | +270
Saints at Falcons Prop Bets
- Team Points – New Orleans Saints over 28.5 (-120)
After a surprising 26-9 loss to the Falcons in Week 10, the Saints scored 34 points in each of their next two games against Tampa Bay and Carolina. The Falcons allow 27.0 points per game and are coming off a 35-22 home loss to Tampa Bay. The Saints will be fired up on Thanksgiving, seeking revenge for that humiliating loss at home. Last year, the Saints dropped 43 points on the Falcons in Atlanta.
- Player Passing Touchdowns – Drew Brees over 1.5 (-200)
This one should be a sure shot. Drew Brees couldn’t toss a TD against the Falcons in Week 10, but he threw for three touchdowns in each of his previous two outings. The Falcons allowed 22 receiving touchdowns this term, and only four teams surrendered more than Atlanta. Their passing defense yields 266.4 yards per game, so Brees should have plenty of chances to find the end zone.
