The Lynchpin was ROLLING last week going 13-1 heads up and look to continue the same magic rolling into Thanksgiving day opening Week 12. There are a LOT of intriguing match ups this week, and I will need all my research, stats, and luck to pick them on Sunday!
Here’s what I got for the Thursday 3-pack – Good luck betters!
Houston Texans (-4) @ Detroit Lions – Houston coming off a lackluster performance, and had to rally to catch up to Jacksonville, and then beat them in OT. They took the Jags lightly and nearly paid the price. They will look to prove themselves against the Lions, and I think they beat them on the road, and get out of town and ready for Indy next week. Texans win
Washington Redskins vs Dallas Cowboys (-3) – RG3 returns to Texas where he’ll have friends, family, and Baylor coaches there watching him against Tony Romo who is MONEY in November and undefeated on Thanksgiving Day. The line is tight, and really could go either way. I’m putting my money on the Dallas Cowboys, who need this one to put pressure on the Giants in the playoff hunt! Dallas Wins
New England Patriots (-7.5) at New York Jets – Life without Gronkowski begins for the Patriots, who will be getting Hernandez back. Their opening meeting went into overtime, and expect a heavy contested game. If Sanchez plays well, this game will be close. I expect the Patriots to win, but the Jets will be in this game. Patriots Win
Happy Thanksgiving to all my Amercian friends!
