With Thanksgiving over you might be feeling a bit down but don’t worry we have some Thanksgiving treats for you this weekend.

 

It’s week twelve of the NFL season and we have got some thanksgiving treats for you this weekend. After the two Thursday games, we have got a full program of games to get involved in. We have got a nice treble for you to get some money from.

 

Arizona Cardinals vs New England Patriots

Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals have been in good form lately but that has not translated in results. They are doing well at 6-4 but have lost two of their last three games. Both of those games came against tough opposition in the Dolphins and Seahawks. One constant is the impressive Kyler Murray who has had 19 touchdowns and ten more rushing. If they are to do well against the Patriots they will need Murray to be at his best.

Although most people look to the passing weapons the Cardinals also have a good run game. This will be needed in games like this as the weather may play a part in the winter. Kenyan Drake and Chase Edmonds have started to look good in the last few weeks. Having said that the biggest weapon for the Cardinals is Deandre Hopkins. He has the highest amount of yards for wide receivers this year with 912 yards. Also, Christian Kirk and Larry Fitzpatrick are good weapons for Kyler Murray. Defensively the Cardinals have improved but they still keep giving up too many points.

 Patriots

The New England Patriots are having a tough year and it’s not going to stop anytime soon. They are sitting at 4-6 for the season and it looks like they could miss out on the playoffs. Leading them is QB Cam Newton who is struggling in his first year as a Patriot. He has rushed for nine touchdowns but has only managed to throw for four and also thrown seven interceptions. One of the biggest problems that Cam Newton has is the lack of support in the offense.

At receiver the Patriots have struggled without Julian Edelman and N’Keal Harry has been in and out of the team. Fortunately, the team has a decent run game with different guys who can do well. Rex Burkhead has been the main guy with six touchdowns but Damien Harris has also been good. Another plus point is that Sony Michel is coming back from a long term injury. Defensively the Patriots are not as good as they have been in the past due to injuries and Covid opt-outs. However, they have kept their opponents at home to twenty points or less in four of their five games.

 

The Bet: Arizona Cardinals -1.0 on the spread at 20/23

 

Las Vegas Raiders vs Atlanta Falcons

Raiders

The Las Vegas Raiders are looking solid this year and are currently at 6-4. They did lose to the Kansas City Chiefs last Sunday but they still looked decent in defeat. One of the main reasons for their improvement is the reliability of QB Derek Carr. He hasn’t got the most touchdowns in the league but he has thrown 19 and more importantly only three interceptions. Not only that but he has one of the highest pass percentages in the league.

The biggest weapon for the Raiders is running back Josh Jacobs who has had an excellent season. He has rushed for 755 yards and nine touchdowns in the ten games so far. Their main receiving option is tight end Darren Waller who is another solid option. At wide receiver, the Raiders have got Henry Ruggs, Hunter Renfrow, and Nelson Agholor who are all solid but unspectacular. Defensively the Raiders are not the greatest but have shown improvement over the last few weeks.

Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons are having a really bad season currently sitting at 3-7 for the year. Despite the sacking of former head coach Dan Quinn not much seems to of changed in Atlanta. They have picked up a few wins but they still look poor. Matt Ryan has thrown a lot of yards but has struggled to convert them into touchdowns, only managing 15. Not only that but he has also thrown seven interceptions.

One of the biggest problems for the Falcons has been the constant hamstring problems with Julio Jones. Jones is known as one of the best wide receivers in the game but he has been in and out this year. With him out so much Calvin Ridley has been the beneficiary with 747 yards and six touchdowns. Also running back Todd Gurley has had a good first year with the Falcons rushing in nine touchdowns. Defensively though the Falcons have been a mess all year and the Raiders should be able to pick them off.

 

The Bet: Las Vegas Raiders -3.0 on the spread at 20/21

 

Kansas City Chiefs vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs are looking like a team that is on their way to the playoffs. They are currently sitting at 9-1 and it’s going to take a seriously good team to beat them anytime soon. The biggest weapon for the Chiefs is star QB Patrick Mahomes who has been on fire this year. He has thrown for over 3,000 yards and 27 touchdowns but just as importantly he has only thrown two interceptions. Most people are still talking about Russell Wilson as the MVP but Mahomes is just as good if not better.

The Chiefs are an embarrassment of riches in all areas and all of them make a difference. At running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire has been decent and newly traded Lev Bell is a great back-up. At wide receiver, the Chiefs have top receiver Tyreek Hill who has amassed 11 touchdowns. Not only do you have Hill but they also have other options in Sammy Watkins, Mecole Hardman, and Demarcus Robinson. Also, they have the best tight end in the game with Travis Kelce who has received 896 yards and seven touchdowns. Not only do the Chiefs have all this but also they have a good defense who can make the difference.

Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are looking good for a playoff spot but have not looked great recently. They are sitting at 7-4 currently but have lost two of their last three games. Both losses have been against tough teams in the Rams, and the Saints and the Chiefs are another tough team to play. Tom Brady has had a good first year with the Bucs but he is still having some tough times. He has thrown 25 touchdowns along with nine interceptions which is quite high.

The Bucs have got an all-star team but when you throw everyone together sometimes it doesn’t work straight away. At wide receiver, they have two high-quality guys in Chris Godwin and Mike Evans both have done well when fit. At running back Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones have been sharing the workload. Both guys have looked good and have shared eight touchdowns between them. Also with the arrival of veterans Rob Gronkowski and Antonio Brown they are looking like a strong offense. Defensively the Bucs are also looking strong but they do give up points against the better teams.

 

The Bet: Kansas City Chiefs -3.5 on the spread at 1/1
