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.
