  • The Dallas Cowboys are 7-point home favorites against the Washington Redskins on Thanksgiving Day (4:30 p.m. ET, FOX).
  • Big bets are coming down on this matchup, moving the line for Thursday's game.
  • Using The Action Network's betting tools, we analyze how sharps are approaching this game.

Thanksgiving is a fantastic holiday for both NFL fans and sports bettors. The football action kicks off with Chicago Bears-Detroit Lions at 12:30 p.m. ET, Washington Redskins-Dallas Cowboys is next at 4:30 p.m. and it concludes with Atlanta Falcons-New Orleans Saints at 8:20 p.m. ET.

With most off work to celebrate the holiday, these games draw a massive television audience and, in turn, betting action.

The influx of money from recreational bettors provides interesting opportunities for sharps as oddsmakers have to monitor how public bias influences action coming from the masses.

As a result, wiseguys can buy back any value created by the overwhelming recreational money.

And according to The Action Network’s public betting data, wiseguys have already keyed in on Thursday’s Redskins-Cowboys NFC East matchup.
