Betting Angles For NFL Thanksgiving Games

With four more weeks left in the regular season, there are a few playoff spots left up for grabs, which makes week 13 very important for a lot of teams that are trying to make the playoffs. The week kicks off on Thanksgiving Day with three division games on the schedule. Here is a preview of those games.

Chicago Bears (5-6) vs. Detroit Lions (7-4), Thursday November 27, 12:30 PM. ET. CBS.

The Bears have been disappointing this season, but still have a chance to make the playoffs, which is why this is a very big game for them. The Lions are on top of the NFC North, but if the Bears can win out, and Detroit loses a few more games, the Bears will be back in the playoff picture. The Bears will need to cut back on their turnovers, and play better defense down the road to make this a possibility, and they will have their hands full with Detroit's high scoring offense.

As the first place team in their division, the Lions are in control of their destiny, and can't afford another late season collapse like they had last year, if they want to earn a top seed in the NFC. Their defense has been a big reason for their success this season, despite the injuries they have on that side of the ball, and will be the key to their success in this game.

Game Line: The Lions are favored to win by 6.5 points, the Over/Under is 47 points.

Personal Pick: Detroit hasn't played well on Thanksgiving in the last decade, but they have the best team they have had in that span now, and will win this game.

Philadelphia Eagles (8-3) vs. Dallas Cowboys (8-3), Thursday, November 27, 4:30 PM. ET. FOX

The winner of this game will be favored to win the NFC East, barring any major injury setbacks. Philadelphia will be without Nick Foles again, other than their loss to the Packers, they have played well without him, and will try to get the upper hand in the division against Dallas. They still have one of the best offenses in the league, but their defense has let them down in some games this season, and will need to step up against the Cowboys in order to get the victory.

The Cowboys have lost two out of their last three games, mainly due to the injury Tony Romo suffered against the Redskins. Romo has had some time to heal, and looked good in his return against Jacksonville a few weeks ago, so he will be expected to play at a high level this week. The Eagles will likely try to shut down DeMarco Murray and their running game, which means Romo, will need to step up and get the offense going through the air.

Game Line: The money line for this game is even, the Over/Under is 51.5 points.

Personal Pick: The Eagles will win a close game in Dallas.

Seattle Seahawks (7-4) vs. San Francisco 49ers (7-4), Thursday, November 27, 8:30 PM. ET.

These two powerhouses find themselves chasing the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC West, and unless Arizona suffers a late season collapse, they will be battling for the final playoff spot in the NFC. The Seahawks haven't played well on the road this year, and haven't won a game in San Francisco in their last five tries, so they have a few things going against them in this game. They have a very tough stretch ahead of them after this game, so they cannot afford a loss to the 49ers if they want to get a chance to defend their championship.

The 49ers have also blown a couple of games they should have won, and know they can't afford to lose another game right now, because the second place teams in the NFC North and East currently have the inside track on the final playoff spot right now. Their defense has been playing very well lately, and Aldon Smith returned to the lineup last week, which should make them a better defensive unit going into this game. Colin Kaepernick and the offense need to start playing better than they have in recent weeks, or else they will lose this game.

Game Line: The 49ers are favored to win this game by 1 point, the Over/Under are 40.5 points.

Personal Pick: The Seahawks will end their road losing streak to the 49ers by winning this game.
