Thanksgiving Day gives us a great opportunity to spend time with family, enjoy a bountiful feast, indulge in a variety of desserts … and bet on NFL football. For decades, a pair of games featuring Dallas and Detroit satisfied our pigskin cravings. In 2006, we were given one more thing to be thankful for: a third NFL Thanksgiving Day game. These unique situations have produced some solid trends.

Dallas Thanksgiving Day games (2003-2010)

Dallas is 6-2 ATS (75%).

Dallas is 4-0 ATS vs. NFC teams, but 2-2 vs. AFC teams (Dallas hosts Miami this year.  The Dolphins are 2-0 ATS on Thanksgiving in this span, with SU wins over both Dallas and Detroit)

Dallas is 5-1 ATS (83%) as a favorite (They are favored by 7 this year).

Dallas is 4-1 Under (80%) in its past five Thanksgiving Day games.

Detroit Thanksgiving Day games (2003-2010)

Detroit has lost 7 straight both SU and ATS.  The Lions’ last win both SU and ATS was against Green Bay in 2003 (They host Green Bay this year. The Packers are 2-1 ATS, all against Detroit, on Thanksgiving in this time period).

Detroit is 5-3 Under (63%).

”Bonus” Thanksgiving Day games (2006-2010)

Home teams are 4-1 ATS (80%).

Favorites are 4-1 ATS (80%).

While neither of the bonus game participants, Baltimore (Home) and San Francisco, have played on Thanksgiving since 2003, each has a small sample of Thursday games to examine:

Baltimore is 0-2 ATS in two Thursday games since 2003 (both on the road).

San Francisco is 2-1 ATS (67%) in three Thursday games since 2003.

San Francisco is 3-0 Under in these games.
