Dolla Dolla Bills Yall - Thanksgiving Edition

The Shark is here with a special Thanksgiving parlay to get you through the holiday and distract you from your annoying family.

Gobble gobble bitches.

COWBOYS (-14) over Raiders
The Raiders actually looked like a functional football team last week with Bruce Gradkowski running the show and the Cowboys can’t seem to find themselves on offense at all. But I just can’t bet on Oakland being able to put two competent outings together in a row – especially on a short week. The Cowboys play historically well on Thanksgiving and I think they’ll have something to prove after putting on a shit-show last week offensively.

Packers (-9) over LIONS
The Packers are a weird team – they look solid one minute and a confused the next. But playing the Lions solves all that. It is likely Detroit will be without NFC Player of the Week Matt Stafford as well as star receiver Calvin Johnson. If neither plays, the Lions have virtually no shot. Coincidently, when the Packers and Lions played earlier in the year, Stafford and Johnson were sidelined in that game as well. The score? 26-0 Green Bay.

BRONCOS (+7) over Giants
The Broncos are in complete crisis mode and they absolutely need to get things right in this game to have a chance of suiting up come January. Brian Dawkins called a closed-door players only meeting this week. Dawkins is one hell of a motivator and should at least help them focus. And lets face it, the Giants aren’t exactly a good team either.  Take the points.

Enjoy the games and have a great Thanksgiving everybody!
