Here are exclusive NFL Turkey Day picks from Chuck McCormick-Director of Race and Sports for Sunset Station in Las Vegas. For more exclusive picks listen Saturdays to The Game Changers on 87.7 The Game! (11/29 3-6pm)
Bears @ Lions.
Lions are only 1-9 SU and 1-8-1 ATS their last 10 thanksgiving day games……only win against GB last year with Matt Flynn at QB. However, the Bears don’t play well on turkey day either losing 5 of their last 6 straight up. Interesting trend: teams coming off back-to-back SU wins heading into thanksgiving against teams coming off SU back –to-back losses are 7-0 SU and 6-1-1 ATS last 7 games. Detroit offense really struggling of late….. looks like the game may be going to 7 ½, may be too many points.
Eagles @ Cowboys
Battle for first place in the NFC East. Can Mark Sanchez play well on the road? Cowboys have dominated turkey day games against teams with losing records of late going 12-1 last 13, but have really struggled against teams with winning records only going 7-12 last 19. Looks like a high scoring game. Looks like the game is going to – 3 ½.
Seahawks @ 49ers.
May be an elimination game for the loser. Both teams still on the outside of the playoffs looking in.
In this series over the last 5 years the home team has gone 11-0 SU and 10-1 ATS.
First meeting since last year’s NFC title game with Sherman and Crabtree going at it. 49ers are currently a 1 point fav. I think this game goes to pick or the Hawks the fav. 49ers possibly getting points at home is the play.
