NFL Picks Week 12: Thanksgiving Games

This is a picture of some NFL players for the article NFL Week 12

Happy Turkey Day!! There are some fantastic games lined up this Thanksgiving. In this NFL Picks Week 12 for Thanksgiving, I will go through each game, give you my picks and a selection of the best odds where you can place your bets.

NFL Week 11 was nuts. The biggest surprises were the Dallas Cowboys beating the Vikings 40-3. No one was expecting such a blowout. Another game was the crazy ending between the Los Angeles Chargers and the Kansas City Chiefs where the Chiefs won in the game’s last minutes. I wonder what surprises week 12 has in store for us.

Buffalo Bills vs Detroit Lions (TNF Nov 24)

Buffalo Bills against the Detroit Lions is set up to be a very interesting game. Both teams won their last game against very strong rivals. They’ll both be coming into this game high on confidence. I wasn’t expecting the Lions to beat the Giants 31-18 in their last game. The Lions are currently 4-6 and in second place in the NFC North Division.

The Bills are amazing and in their last game against the Cleveland Browns, they have shown once again the reason why I believe that they have what it takes to get to the Super Bowl once again. They are currently at 7-3 and in second place in their division.

For this game I would have to pick the Buffalo Bills, I think they are too strong right now and I cannot see the Lions stopping Josh Allen. 

My pick: The Buffalo Bills with a point spread of -9.5 (-114 at Betsafe).

Dallas Cowboys vs New York Giants (TNF Nov 24)

Both teams come into this game with a 7-3 record. I am very curious to see how the Giants will play after their loss against the Lions. The Cowboys on other hand, won their last game against the Vikings by a 37 points margin. After watching that game I can’t doubt them anymore. Even though both teams are performing well, I cannot bet against the Cowboys after such a dominant performance.  

My pick: The Dallas Cowboys with a point spread of -9.5 ( -109 at iBet).

New England Patriots vs Minnesota Vikings (TNF Nov 24)

The Patriots won their last game against the Jets and will want to continue their streak. The Patriots are 6-4 and I am not sure they have what it takes to beat the Vikings. Regarding Minnesota, as I said before, I don’t think anyone was expecting them to lose in the way that they did against the Cowboys. They made so many mistakes and after the Cowboy’s third touchdown they weren’t in the game anymore.

Maybe this is something that has been coming for a very long time since they were a bit lucky in some of their previous games. They are still on top of the NFC North Division with an 8-2 record. However, they have big games coming up, so they must be careful and not make the same mistakes. I have a strong feeling that the Vikings will win this game. Nevertheless, I wouldn’t be shocked if the Patriots managed to get a win. 

My pick: The Minnesota Vikings with a point spread of -2.5 (-116 at BetoBet).
