Here's my results for Thanksgiving Week
W-L-T record: 3-7
Season record: 50-47
Worst week yet, after 9-1 the previous week. Oh well, reload.
Chicago Bears (-3 1/2) over Seattle Seahawks
The Bears have Cutler back and their defense is looking great, while the Seahawks are facing drug suspensions on their defense. Not a good combo.
Indianapolis Colts (+6) over Detroit Lions
The Lions are too uneven to give a serious playoff contender like the Colts six points.
Buffalo Bills (-6) over Jacksonville Jaguars
The Jaguars don't look good and playing in Toronto in December doesn't help.
New England Patriots (-7 1/2) over Miami Dolphins
The Patriots are one of the few teams I'll give almost any opponent a TD and still bet on them.
Houston Texans (-6 1/2) over Tennessee Titans
The Texans have proven themselves to be a serious Super Bowl contender this year and will show it again in Tennessee.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+7) over Denver Broncos
Peyton Manning was banged up last week, and the Bucs are a tough team. I'll pick Tampa Bay to be within a TD.
Pittsburgh Steelers (+8) over Baltimore Ravens
Will the Steelers lose their third in a row? Yes. Will they lose within a TD? Yes.
Philadelphia Eagles (+10 1/2) over Dallas Cowboys
I don't care how bad the Eagles are playing. The Cowboys don't deserve 10 1/2 points against anybody.
