NFL Serves Up Thanksgiving Tradition for Week 12

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The NFL offers a Thanksgiving Day tradition only equaled by turkey for dinner, each year offering a slate of games that are easily among the most watched and most wagered-on games of the regular season, according to TheLines.com, which tracks odds in the U.S. regulated sports betting market.

Playing their traditional Thanksgiving Day home roles, the Detroit Lions enter the week as 2.5-point underdogs to the Houston Texans, according to a consensus of that nation's largest legal online sportsbooks ? including FanDuel, DraftKings, PointsBet, PlaySugarHouse, and BetMGM. Meanwhile, the Dallas Cowboys will host the rival Washington Football Team as 2.5-point favorites. Thanksgiving's games will peak with a heavyweight matchup between the Baltimore Ravens and the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers, who enter the week as 3-point home favorites.

In their long history as Thanksgiving hosts, the Lions are 37-41-2 straight-up on the holiday, including 4-7 since 2009. Meanwhile, the Cowboys have gone 31-20-1 straight-up, though only 5-6 since 2009. Against the spread, the Lions are 6-5 over the last 11 Thanksgiving Day games, while the Cowboys have struggled at 2-9. Whether playing at home or on the road, favorites have gone 19-14 against the spread since 2009.

"Thanksgiving games mirror what we see on the weekly Thursday Night games, with quality teams enjoying a particular advantage during the short week of preparation," said Brett Collson, lead analyst for TheLines.com. "But like any Thursday Night game, the results of Thanksgiving games can be difficult to predict, which is often what makes them such a fun holiday tradition."

The consensus point spreads for Week 12 games, as of Monday, Nov. 23:
