WEEK 11 saw a lot of surprises so I’m hoping to avoid any on Thanksgiving.
The favourites look right to me even though Chicago are on the road. Matt Stafford usually has a good turkey day but this should be different with Mack and that defence coming to town. Likely to be without Johnson and Jones, the Lions really don’t have any offensive weapons other than Golladay.
Washington head to Jerry world with Colt McCoy under centre after Alex Smith's horrific leg break on Sunday. McCoy has experience and very nearly beat the Texans in his cameo role but for four quarters I can’t see him keeping up with the Cowboys who have been decent since Amari Cooper's arrival which is freeing up room for Zeke to roam.
The night game sees the Falcons head to the Super Bowl favourites New Orleans who are scoring a league high 37.8 points per game (48 over their last 3).
Revenge will be on the cards for Atlanta but there is no stopping Drew Brees who is my MVP favourite. The Saints should be the second team to reach 10 wins come Friday morning so I’ll tease down the field goal win.
I’m also on a prop in the Dallas game. I mentioned Jordan Reed had a good connection with McCoy when he took over from Smith, and I’m on his receiving line which is very low. Pinnacle have opened up this line @ 47.5, so this seems decent. The Cowboys have allowed the second most yards to Tight Ends over the last two weeks.
