PICK 1: Bills +7
Neither of these teams have built much of a resume despite above-.500 records. Buffalo is just 1-2 against playoff-contending teams, Dallas is 1-4, with the one victory over the Eagles.
RELATED: Thanksgiving Day Betting Preview
Dallas’ offense should be challenged by the Bills while Buffalo’s run-first offense should find some success against the Cowboys’ middle-of-the-road run defense.
The Cowboys are just 3-4 over the last seven Thanksgivings with only one win more than seven points (last year’s 31-23 nailbiter with the horrid Redskins).
PICK 2: Under 45 Points
Both teams have running backs who will get the rock a lot (the Bills also have one of the top scrambling QBs). Both have passing defenses that will make establishing the run important as well. The Under is 6-1 in Buffalo’s last seven on the road, and it’s 5-1 against above-.500 teams.
PICK 3: Highest Scoring Quarter — Second
The Cowboys and Bills have struggled to open games but once they’re in the thick of it, scoring picks up. The second quarter has been the most-prolific for Dallas all season, and even more so lately, averaging nearly two TDs per game the last three weeks. The second has also been No. 1 for Buffalo lately and is also the quarter it allows the most points.
PICK 4: Total Match Turnovers — 2-3
Through 11 games, Cowboys games have a total of 26 turnovers – 2.4 per game. Through 11 games, Bills games have a total of 26 turnovers, too. A prop that covers two and three turnovers looks like a solid bet with a 22-game sample size that averages 2.4.
PICK 5: Second-Half Moneyline — Cowboys
Dallas has been a second-half team, nearly doubling up the competition all season after the break. The Bills have scored roughly 47 fewer second-half points and allowed more as well.
