Stuff yourself with Thanksgiving Day football

A Thanksgiving bonanza is on the cards tonight as our American cousins sit down to turkey with all the trimmings and three televised football matches as we sit down to turkey drummers with chips and three televised football matches.

While us Brits don't celebrate Thanksgiving we can certainly get involved in the live matches and see if we can pick some winners to make some pennies for our turkey fest that is Christmas.

Tennessee at Detroit

Detroit's record is absolutely abysmal. They are 0-11 for the season. Tennessee's record is quite the opposite and they only lost their first game last week to Superbowl favourites the New York Jets.

The Titans have one of the best defences around and the Lions who have trouble enough scoring anyway will struggle to break them down.

While Tennessee don't thump teams they should cover the 11 point spread and look the bet at 10/11.

Seattle at Dallas

Seattle are another team with a woeful record of 2-9 coming up against the useful Dallas Cowboys who are 7-4 and recently welcomed back their talismanic quarter back Tony Romo.

Since Romo returned Dallas have destroyed San Francisco and beaten the Washington Redskins and will be supremely confident of beating a poor Seattle side.

The Seahawks have been desperately unlucky with injuries all season but do have quarterback Matt Hasselbeck playing again which should at least make them more competitive.

Seattle have often done well late on and the bet could be for the fourth quarter to be the highest scoring at 2/1. Dallas need to win this as they have a tough run-in and Seattle will be desperate for something to keep alive their hopes of the play-offs.

On the spreads the Cowboys should give the Seahawks a real Thanksgiving stuffing and cover the 12 points at 10/11.

Arizona at Philadelphia

This is certainly the tightest match of the televised ones and for those willing to stay up late we could have a real battle on our hands.

Philadelphia are on the verge of missing the play-offs and problems off the field concerning how coach Andy Reid dropped 10 year starting quarterback Donovan McNabb without informing him have only added to their woes.

Arizona have one of the best quarterbacks around in Kurt Warner but their running game is poor.

While Arizona don't have the need to win this game like the Eagles do the lack of harmony in the Philadelphia camp could tell and Arizona can make the best of their three point start at 10/11 and confound the Eagles to a truly miserable season.
