Thanksgiving football picks against the spread: Turkey Day home wins during the day

Who are our Thanksgiving football picks?

Scott Cunningham

Thanksgiving is here, which means food, family and football. It means the Dallas Cowboys and the Detroit Lions (for some reason). Then there is a New England Patriots game to boot. What about the spread and Vegas? And what do I think?

Houston Texans (-3.5) at Detroit Lions: Houston's defense has been worse since Brian Cushing went down. They gave up 37 to the Jaguars! Going on the road on a short week is tough. Picks: Lions, +3.5.

Washington Redskins at Dallas Cowboys (-3.5): The Cowboys are on a little bit of a roll, but the face RGIII. I don't really like either team. But I will endorse another win for Dallas and give away the points. Dallas, -3.5.

New York Jets at New England Patriots (-7): Th Jets are coming off a win. But they are on the road. And they are still the Jets. Pats, -7.

Enjoy your turkey and football! We'll be back tomorrow for more picks against the spread.
