For Thanksgiving NFL, Jared Hackymer has his eyes on Texas with the Texans vs Lions and Cowboys vs Washington
Today's games are at 12:30 and 4:30 EST.
Texans (-3) LIONS (51)
Jared’s Pick: Texans
Breakout Player: WR Will Fuller
If Deshaun Watson plays like he did last week, Houston should cover this spread. And as the Lions got shutout last week by backup Panther QB PJ Walker, it's hard to see how they're going to stop Watson. Both teams have been horrible on the defensive side of the ball so this game will be up to the offenses, and Houston’s is clearly better.
COWBOYS (-3) Football Team (46.5)
Jared’s Pick: Cowboys
Breakout Player: WR CeeDee Lamb
Dallas actually looks like a football team with Andy Dalton behind center. The last few weeks, they were struggling to even score. Now, they are coming off of a big win against Minnesota. The key for Dallas is for their defense to take advantage of Washington’s struggling offense – today likely without top receiver Terry McLaurin. If Dallas’ defense can hold Washington to minimal points, their offense can get the job done to cover a field goal.
