Against the Spread (Thanksgiving Edition)

DeGags November 26, 2008 5

Next on the agenda is Thanksgiving Day Football. ATS is covering all 4 games for the occasion for your wagering enjoyment.

We’ll start with the big leagues:

We’ll start with the best match-up of the day, Philadelphia hosting Arizona. This game’s outcome hinges on which Eagles team shows up to play. I’m not entirely convinced it will be the one that wins. But Philly is not a pleasant place to play. It’s my disdain for Philly that allows me to respect the the likelihood that a 5-5 Philly team can pull off a victory over a consistent 7-4 Cardinals team. I’m going with a combination teaser here 2 units Philly -3 /Over 47.5 teased 6 points. 2 Units Philly +3 over Ari/ Over 41.5 pays 2 Units.

Tennessee at Detroit.
I was all over the Jets upsetting the Titans last week. Out of tradition I love Detroit on Turkey day, but not this year. Tenn can go into Pontiac and win this game. And they will. The Lions don’t have Farve, and they don’t have a defense capable of stopping Tennessee. This almost seems too easy to pick. I have 1 unit on Tenn -11.5 over Detroit ATS, and 1 unit on the over 43.5

Seattle at Dallas
Are you kidding?? Dallas owns this one. Seattle couldn’t beat Tacoma State these days. Sure Dallas has struggled, but they won’t struggle against Seattle, and not on Thanksgiving day. But just for fun we’ll tease this one. Taking 10 Units Dallas over Seattle -13.5 and the over 46.5 teased 13.5 points. That’s 10 Units Dallas even over Seattle / Over 33 points pays 5 Units.

Next we have sheepskin pigskin.
Texas vying for the #1 spot will look to enhance their BCS standings by dominating Texas A & M. Texas can’t afford to win by less than 35 points (The current spread.) I am taking 5 Units on Texas -35.

Good look, and have a happy Thanksgiving.

Record: 12-13 (+ .4 units)
