  • You can use any spread/moneyline/total combination from the three Thanksgiving NFL games. Example: You could parlay together the Bears moneyline, the over in Bills-Cowboys and the Saints spread.

Our Action Network NFL podcast crew of Chris Raybon and Stuckey runs through their favorite parlay combination for the three Thanksgiving games below. As a reminder, here are the games in tap for Thanksgiving, along with the spreads and over/unders (as of Wednesday morning):

  • Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions (12:30 p.m. ET) | Spread: Bears -3.5 | Over/Under: 38
  • Buffalo Bills at Dallas Cowboys (4:30 p.m. ET) | Spread: Cowboys -6.5 | Over/Under: 47
  • New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons (8:20 p.m. ET) | Spread: Saints -6.5 | Over/Under: 49

NFL Thanksgiving Parlay Picks

Bears at Lions Betting Pick

Raybon: I took the under in this game at 39. The Bears’ offense isn’t in a position to put up points on anybody. We saw that against the Giants, one of the worst defenses in the league, and the Bears could only muster 19 points. I’m not sure they can make the over/unders low enough in Bears games.

Here are their last five games: 19-14 win against the Giants, 17-7 loss against the Rams, 20-13 win against the Lions, 22-14 loss against the Eagles and 17-16 loss against the Chargers . They haven’t cleared the current total of 38 in a single game.

Pick: Under 38

Bills at Cowboys Betting Pick

Stuckey: I don’t consider the Bills to be among the elite group of teams. Yes, the Bills won and covered against the Broncos on Sunday, but to show you how easy their schedule has been, Buffalo’s strength of victory actually improved with a win over the 3-8 Broncos.

This team is deeply flawed, especially their run defense. Ezekiel Elliott should have a day and the Cowboys’ offensive line should dominate. I don’t trust the Bills offense to keep up with the Cowboys on the road. The spread is about right to me, but this is a perfect moneyline parlay piece.

Pick: Cowboys Moneyline -295

Saints at Falcons Betting Pick

Stuckey: I’d look under 49 here. The Saints have a ton of injuries along their offensive line, and the last time these two teams played, the Falcons’ defensive line dominated. Atlanta’s secondary is a mess, but this defense should be able to get pressure on Drew Brees to disrupt the passing game.

On the other side, Julio Jones is banged up and playing on a short week. The Falcons’ offensive line is also a mess and they struggle running the ball. They might be down to their 19th tight end. I just don’t see this offense doing too much.

Raybon: One of our Bet Labs Pro Systems is to target Divisional Unders late in the season when the total is 44.5 or higher. Unders have hit at a 62% clip in this spot going back to 2003.

Pick: Under 49

NFL Thanksgiving Parlay Summary

  • Bears-Lions Under 38
  • Cowboys Moneyline -295
  • Saints-Falcons Under 49

Odds: +389 ($100 bet would profit $389 if all three wagers hit)

Good luck — and don’t forget to place your parlay on DraftKings to take advantage of the risk-free promotion if you’re a new customer!
