Speaking of the Vikings, they’ll look to rebound from that disappointing loss to Dallas in the nightcap against the New England Patriots (6-4).
Minnesota (8-2) has been outscored 64-10 in its two losses.
Pro Picks has fared far better predicting Sunday games than Thursday contests this season, but perhaps three games are luckier than one.
Buffalo (minus 9 1/2) at Detroit
Josh Allen and the Bills face a different crowd in Detroit this week. The Lions have allowed 19 points per game during a three-game winning streak.
New York Giants (plus 9 1/2) at Dallas
The Cowboys are 1-10 against the spread in the past 11 games on Thanksgiving, but the Giants are dealing with several injuries.
New England (plus 2 1/2) at Minnesota
Kirk Cousins is 0-2 against Bill Belichick. The Patriots can’t score.
Baltimore (minus 4) at Jacksonville
Struggling to beat the Panthers got the Ravens’ attention.
BEST BET: RAVENS, 24-17
Cincinnati (minus 2 1/2) at Tennessee
The AFC South-leading Titans get no respect in a playoff rematch against the team that ended their 2021 season.
UPSET SPECIAL: TITANS, 24-23
Denver (minus 2 1/2) at Carolina
It’s Sam Darnold’s turn to start for the Panthers. At least he didn’t cost Carolina Russell Wilson’s price.
Atlanta (plus 4) at Washington
Taylor Heinicke is 4-1 as the starter, the defense is leading the way and the Commanders are rolling. The Falcons remain only one game behind the Buccaneers in the NFC South.
Tampa Bay (minus 3 1/2) at Cleveland
Tom Brady and the Buccaneers return from a bye. Jacoby Brissett starts his last game before Deshaun Watson’s return.
Houston (plus 13) at Miami
Fresh off a bye, the Dolphins get another one against a one-win team.
Chicago (plus 4 1/2) at New York Jets
Justin Fields has an opportunity to make the Jets regret taking Zach Wilson ahead of him in last year’s draft even more.
Las Vegas (plus 3 1/2) at Seattle
The Raiders try to build off a comeback win at Denver.
Los Angeles Chargers (minus 4) at Arizona
The right opponent for the Chargers to get back on the winning track after losing two in a row.
Los Angeles Rams (plus 14 1/2) at Kansas City
The defending Super Bowl champions are a mess. Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs look like the best team in the NFL.
New Orleans (plus 9 1/2) at San Francisco
Jimmy Garoppolo and the 49ers are rolling.
Green Bay (plus 7) at Philadelphia
Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are desperate to save their season.
Pittsburgh (plus 2 1/2) at Indianapolis
The Colts would’ve defeated the Eagles if they didn’t make costly penalties.
