The Las Vegas Raiders will square off against the Dallas Cowboys in perhaps the most entertaining game on the Thanksgiving Day docket.
The Cowboys rank No. 4 in total DVOA in the NFL. And while the Raiders were ranked as high as No. 14 earlier this month, they’ve slipped down to No. 22 overall.
The betting markets reflect this disparity in the advanced analytics. The Cowboys are 7.5-point favorites but still have 79% of the total money on their spread at FanDuel. The Raiders at +7.5 only have 21% of the money at the sportsbook.
Bettors are also hammering player props associated with Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott.
NFL Props: Cowboys vs. Raiders
- Dak Prescott to throw for more than 270.5 yards (-115)
- Ezekiel Elliott to rush for more than 60.5 yards (-121)
- Ezekiel Elliott to score at touchdown at any time (-176)
Prescott leads the list of most popular props for this Thanksgiving Day special, but Elliott has the next two.
Prescott has thrown for more than 270 yards in just four of his nine games this year. That implies odds of +125, less value than you’re getting with a -115 vig.
But, the Raiders defense is ranked No. 23 in the NFL against the pass. And it’s a massive Thanksgiving game — for implicit reasons, but also for Dallas’ No. 1 seed future.
This one might be worth a sprinkle for those factors alone.
Elliott dominates the rest of the prop chart. He’s rushed for more than 60.5 yards in five of his 10 games this season for odds of +100.
But, he hasn’t done so since Oct. 17 — five weeks ago.
Las Vegas’ rush defense is No. 15 in the NFL. This rushing yard prop is hard to empirically deduce.
As is Elliot’s touchdown prop. He’s also scored in five of 10 games this season for implied odds of +100.
For my money, you’re not getting enough value at -171 to bet on that. I’d stick with Prescott’s passing yard prop and call it a day.
