Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!  Hope you all caught the inaugural #PropsGiving special with my homie TNTbets out on the East Coast this morning. We gave away so many NFL player props. Check out the episode pinned on my twitter profile @betsmartpodcast.

We had the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens postponed until Sunday due to Covid which leaves us with Houston Texans at Detroit Lions and Washington Football Team at Dallas Cowboys on Turkey Day.

Houston Texans (3-7) at Detroit Lions (4-6) (12:30pm ET – Thanksgiving Day)

From the outside looking in, this game stinks. No pun intended. For the gamblers in us, this game has $ written all over the place.

First off, ignore the total at 52 points. I don’t like the number. It can easily go either way. Throughout the season, both teams have play bad defense. Both teams have weapons on offense, although the majority of the Lions skill players (Kenny Golladay & D’Andre Swift) will be out. But really the only factor to consider today are the signal callers.

Matthew Stafford who has an injured thumb on his throwing hand and Deshaun Watson, who is playing at an elite level regardless what is happening with that team. This is a no brainer today.
