Why the Vikings can cover the spread

The Vikings just ran their winning streak to six in a row with an important 24-7 victory over the Rams last week. Minnesota spotted Los Angeles an early touchdown and then threw a shutout from there.

Meanwhile, Vikings running back Latavius Murray scored to forge a 7-7 tie in the second quarter, then scored again to snap that tie early in the fourth.

Minnesota then iced the game a few moments later on a 65-yard Case Keenum-to-Adam Thielen scoring hookup and covered as two-point favorites.

On the day, the Vikings outgained Los Angeles 451-254, outrushed the Rams 171-45 and dominated time of possession by a 37-23 margin.

Minnesota has now outgained each of its last eight opponents and outrushed five of its last six foes. The Vikings are also now 6-2 both SU and ATS since Keenum took over as the starter at quarterback.

At 8-2 overall, Minnesota now sits in the No. 2 spot in the NFC playoff standings, just one game behind 9-1 Philadelphia.

Why the Lions can cover the spread

The Lions own a three-game winning streak after beating the Bears 27-24. Detroit spotted Chicago the first 10 points of the game but rallied to take a 21-17 lead into halftime.

Near the end, the Lions got a 52-yard field goal from Matt Prater to break a 24-24 tie and then survived a Chicago field-goal attempt that would have forced overtime.

On the day, Detroit got outgained by Chicago 398-352, but the Lions defense scored a touchdown—its fifth of this season—and stiffened as the game progressed, holding the Bears to seven points over the final 37 minutes.

Two weeks ago, the Lions beat Cleveland 38-24, covering a 10-point spread and just before that they won at Green Bay 30-17, covering as three-point favorites, although the Packers were without Aaron Rodgers.

At 6-4 overall, Detroit is tied with Atlanta for the No. 6 seed in the NFC playoff standings, but the Falcons own the head-to-head tiebreaker on the Lions.

Cowboys vs Chargers Live Stream NFL Thanksgiving Day Game 5/5 (1)

Since starting this season with four straight losses, the Los Angeles Chargers are 4-2 straight up and 5-1 against the spread. The Dallas Cowboys, on the other hand, started this season 5-3 but are on an 0-2 SU and ATS run. Two teams trending in different directions meet when Los Angeles dances with Dallas on Thanksgiving afternoon.

Why the Chargers can cover the spread

The Chargers just snapped a two-game losing skid with a 54-24 bouncing of Buffalo last week. Los Angeles took advantage of a Bills rookie quarterback to take an early 7-0 lead on a pick-six and later broke a 7-7 tie by scoring 33 unanswered points. The Chargers added another defensive score in the third quarter on their way to the easy cover as seven-point favorites.

On the afternoon, Los Angeles piled up 429 yards of offense, including 146 on the ground, held a 36-24 advantage in time of possession and won the turnover battle 6-0, resulting directly in 31 Chargers points.

Los Angeles may only be 4-6 on the season, but it’s also only one game behind 5-5 Baltimore in the battle for the second AFC wild-card spot.

Why the Cowboys can cover the spread

The Cowboys are a tough client to shill for at the moment coming off a pair of bad losses. Two weeks ago, in its first game without suspended running back Ezekiel Elliott, Dallas lost at Atlanta 27-7, and last week, the Cowboys fell at home to Philadelphia 37-9.

Dallas actually led the Eagles 9-7 into the third quarter but came up empty from there as Philly finished the game with a 30-0 run.

Two weeks ago, the Cowboys led the Falcons early 7-0 then faded from there.

The situation may seem dire, but at, 5-5 Dallas only trails 6-4 Atlanta by a game (and a tiebreaker) for the second NFC wild-card spot.

Giants vs Redskins NFL Thanksgiving Day Game Live Stream 5/5 (2)

Giants vs Redskins

Giants vs Redskins NFL Thanksgiving Day

Why the Giants can cover the spread

The Giants picked up their second upset victory of the season last week, beating Kansas City in overtime 12-9.

New York, as a 10-point home dog, drew first blood with a second-quarter touchdown and led 9-6 late. The Giants then let the Chiefs tie the score with one second left in regulation, but they won the game on a short Aldrick Rosas field goal with two minutes left in OT.

On the afternoon, New York got outgained by Kansas City 363-317 but won the turnover battle 3-1, resulting in a plus-six point differential. The Giants are only 2-8 SU on the season, but they’re 4-3 ATS as underdogs.

Why the Redskins can cover the spread

The Redskins are looking to rebound from back-to-back tough losses, most recently a 34-31 overtime decision at New Orleans last week.

Washington led that game at the half 17-13 and 31-16 midway through the fourth quarter. But the Redskins fell victim to Drew Brees, who directed the Saints on two quick scoring drives that forced OT and later allowed two long runs that set up New Orleans’ game-winning field goal.

On the afternoon, Washington produced 456 yards of offense, 156 on the ground and 300 through the air. But the Redskins got stuffed on a late 3rd-and-1 run when a first down would have won the game, and they then got called for a defensive penalty that negated what would have been a game-clinching interception.

Two weeks ago, Washington lost by one score to a pretty good Vikings team in Minneapolis. And just before that, the Redskins upset the Seahawks in Seattle.

Washington is only 4-6 this season but with a little luck it could be 6-4.
