Thanksgiving Day UPSET
Chicago Bears (3-7) @ Detroit Lions (0-9-1)
Vegas Picks: CHI -3
Goldie’s Take: Lions Win 24-21
The stage couldn’t be set up better for the lowly Lions to get their first win of what has been a very long and grueling season. Detroit has been competing with solid teams in their last few games with a tie against the Steelers and only a three point loss to the Browns. Meanwhile, Chicago is completely falling apart and many are speculating that Bears head coach Matt Nagy could be on the outs after this one. Mo-Town finally has something to be thankful for as the Lions come away with a Turkey Day UPSET!
Las Vegas Raiders (5-5) @ Dallas Cowboys (7-3)
Vegas Picks: DAL -7.5
Goldie’s Take: Cowboys Win 31-24
After the red hot 5-2 start things have kind of started to hit the fan for the Raiders. The drama with Jon Gruden and then Henry Ruggs is finally starting to catch up with them, as the squad in silver and black currently holds a three-game losing streak. On the other hand, the Cowboys have been excellent to start the season. A rough performance last week in KC merritts a Thanksgiving bounce back. Cowboys take care of business at home, but giving Raiders a very legitimate chance at covering.
Buffalo Bills (6-4) @ New Orleans Saints (5-5)
Vegas Picks: BUF -6.5
Goldie’s Take: Bills Win 30-23
The Bills have not been as high and mighty as we once thought. A loss to the Jaguars and a blowout loss at home versus the Colts is a very bad look for the Buffalo boys. However, the Saints don’t boast too much momentum coming into this one either, losers of three straight contests. Both of these squads are looking to get their mojo back after a tough couple of weeks, I believe in Josh Allen and the Bills to get back on track with a Thanksgiving night feast in N’awlins.
