NFL 2008 Week 13 Thursday Games - Turkey Day

Happy Thanksgiving to everybody. Go Cowboys!!! Say a prayer for those in uniform and give thanks for living in the shining city on the hill nation of nations. Now here are My Thanksgiving Football picks!

Remember - these picks are only for entertainment purposes and you bet on these picks at your own peril. I am not responsible for you following my stupidity. Now let us look at the picks for Thanksgiving in this week thirteen of the 2008 season.

Tennessee -11.5Detroit TennesseeTen - 20-16
Dallas-12.5 Seattle SeattleDal - 24-17
Philadelphia -2.5 Arizona PhiladelphiaPhi - 27-17

(definitions ATS - against the spread, APG - Average Points per Game

♊ - Tennessee at Detroit (-11.5) - Tennessee is 4-1 ATS on the road this year and is giving up only 11 points per game. Detroit is 0-5 ATS at home this year. Ride the hot horse, so lets pick Tennessee.

♊ - Seattle at Dallas (12.5) - Dallas is only 2-3 ATS at home, and Seattle is 3-2 on the road. That 12.5 spread just bothers me as I saw this as an 8 point win. Of course I haven't done well on the Cowboys games all year so I'm probably wrong again (and if I am, I'll take it). Going with Seattle

♊ - Arizona at Philadelphia (2.5) - Philadelphia is a mess, a QB controversy, a team that is up one week and down the next. It is just hard to figure out the Eagles. It comes down to this, the Cards are a better team but the West Coast Teams are 0-15 this year in the eastern time zone. So, even though Arizona is 4-2 on the road ATS I'm picking the Eagles.

♊ - Well, let's hope we get some funny hats too.
