NFL Week 12 Betting Lines
There are few greater American traditions than Thanksgiving Day weekend. And a big part of that annual tradition is football. The Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys always host a game on Thanksgiving each year. The one game that rotates to other teams is the Thanksgiving night game which is a newer but highly popular tradition. Adding to the intrigue of Week 12 is the fact that the pressure will be on full blast. Just as noticeable is that no team will be on a bye week for this holiday weekend spectacular. From Thanksgiving Thursday through Monday Night are games that will have profound playoff impact.
NFL Week 12 Schedule & Lines
As always Thanksgiving Day will begin from Ford Field in Detroit with the Lions hosting the Texans. It is possible that both teams will be out of the playoff race as neither is seen as a preseason favorite. It’s also possible that either team could be a surprise contender due to each club having some impact players.
There is no doubt that the Dallas Cowboys are a top preseason chalk after a strong 2020 NFL Draft and the hiring of new head coach Mike McCarthy. America’s Team will be hosting its old arch rival Redskins in what brings back a flood of memories.
Speaking of rivalries, Pittsburgh will host the best game of the day between the Ravens and Steelers. The players may be different but these teams have a long history of bitter hatred due to high stakes matchups and that is likely to be the case for this one. It’s the first of two great prime time NBC games for the weekend.
Sunday afternoon features a potential Super Bowl matchup of the Chiefs and Buccaneers from Tampa Bay. Patrick Mahomes has emerged as the best quarterback in the game for Kansas City. But of course, Tom Brady is the Greatest of All Time and will be trying to prove that he can win without Bill Belichick and his Patriots Way. Kansas City should be an even better team than last year’s Super Bowl championship unit but they will also be a target, especially in a high-profile road game like this one.
Sunday Night Football offers the oldest rivalry in the NFL when the Green Bay Packers host the Chicago Bears in what could well be the Frozen Tundra of Lambeau Field. Will the Bears return to their 2018 form when they stole the NFC North by surprise or was last year a portent of bad things to come? As for the Packers they improved enough under rookie head coach Matt LaFleur to make the 2019 NFC Championship Gane. But they were exposed as nowhere near ready for prime time when they were annihilated at the San Francisco 49ers, one win shy of a Super Bowl. Indeed, NBC caps off its two Thanksgiving Weekend games in style!
Monday Night Football is a 2019 playoff rematch of the Seahawks and Eagles from Philadelphia. Last January in the Wild Card round the Seahawks prevailed 17-9. Eagles coach Doug Pederson has fallen from favor since leading Philadelphia to a stunning Super Bowl upset over the Patriots in February of 2018. This is seen as a win or else season for Pederson in the City of Brotherly Love.
