Dr. Cranfill’s Thanksgiving Day NFL Football Picks!!!
Well. 2-2 last week aint bad but it’s not much of a bull market either. This is Thanksgiving week and either way, we’re all winners but lets see if we can’t add copious amounts of winning gravy to Thanksgiving football by winning some DAMN MONEY…..
Detroit Lions vs Green Bay Packers (-6½) (Fox 11 9:30am)
You know either way here, we’re all losers since Nickelback is playing the halftime show at this game. You know Nickelback is racist right? THAT’s a JOKE. SIMMER DOWN. The Packers come in undefeated at 10-0, Detroit, very much alive for the playoffs at 7-3. Technically speaking, the Lions can score with the Pack AND can put serious pressure on Packers QB Aaron Rogers. Stupidly speaking, if you’re going to face a pack of Lions, you better have at least one Daniel on your team. Daniel 6:16-24. King James version. Problem is, Green Bay doesn’t have one single Daniel on their entire roster so I will take the Lions to cover, and because I like to gamble recklessly, I’ll take the Lions to win.
Dallas Cowboys (-7) vs Miami Dolphins (CBS 1:30pm)
Seriously Vegas? You’re gonna make Tony Romo, on a big stage a touchdown favorite? Have you not been watching Tony Romo in big games over the last 5 years? Dolphins have reeled off 3 wins in a row too thereby forfeiting any claim to Andrew Luck. So how to go on this game? I am gonna do something smart for once in my life here and say Vegas has it exactly right and this game will be a 7 point Cowboy win, otherwise known as a push, and waste of time.
Baltimore Ravens (-3) vs San Francisco 49ers (NFL Network 5:20pm)
The Harbaugh Bowl. Coach Jim Harbaugh vs Coach John Harbaugh to cap off our Thanksgiving Day NFL Schedule. Sucks for you if you don’t have the NFL Network cause this should be a dandy. Ravens are a three point favorite at home but honestly, they’ve been the most bipolar team in the NFL this year. Sweep the Steelers, lose to the Seahawks and Jaguars? Meanwhile, the 49ers look rock solid week in, week out. Which Ravens team comes to play? Seeing as it’s on Thanksgiving Day and thousands, if not millions, of turkey’s lost their lives for this holiday, I am betting the Ravens show up looking for revenge for their brothers-from-another-genus. You know a group of ravens is called a murder and I think Baltimore is gonna murder the 49ers. You had Joe Montana San Francisco. That’s enough for one lifetime. Take the Ravens to cover and win.
And call it a total hunch, but I think the New Orleans Saints (-6½) may just resolutely destroy the NY Giants on Monday Night Football. Just wanted toput that out there.
