Top NFL Week 12 Thanksgiving Game Predictions and Picks

Thanksgiving Football Extravaganza: Week 12 Edition

Week 12 has arrived and with it comes the beloved Thanksgiving football tradition. This year’s lineup includes three exciting games: Packers vs. Lions at noon, Commanders at Cowboys in the afternoon, and 49ers at Seahawks in the evening. While some of these matchups have wide spreads, they promise to be engaging divisional contests that could surprise us all. Let’s dive into today’s picks, based on the moneyline (aka picking the winner). But fear not, I’ll still include spread and over/under info for the interested folks. And stick around for the rest of the staff’s picks at the end. All odds are from DraftKings Sportsbook and are subject to change. Check the current odds here.

Thanksgiving Noon: Green Bay Packers (4-6) at Detroit Lions (8-2)

The pick: Lions (-375)

Spread: Lions -7.5 | Over/Under: 47 | Moneyline: Lions -375, Packers +295

The annual Lions Thanksgiving game heavily favors the Lions this year, a surprising twist. Detroit is a top NFC contender, trailing only the Eagles. On the other hand, the Packers have been a letdown. While Detroit barely escaped the Bears last week, I believe they will handle their rivals with no trouble.

Thanksgiving Afternoon: Washington Commanders (4-7) at Dallas Cowboys (7-3)

The pick: Cowboys (-700)

Spread: Cowboys -12.5 | Over/Under: 48.5 | Moneyline: Cowboys -700, Commanders +500

Despite it being a close week in terms of the spread, the Thanksgiving afternoon matchup has the largest spread of the week as the Cowboys take on the Commanders. Washington’s recent loss to the Giants, led by Tommy DeVito, paints a clear picture. Dallas may lack consistency, but their peaks have been exceptional. So, there’s no need to overthink this – the Cowboys will handle business at home.

Thanksgiving Evening: San Francisco 49ers (7-3) at Seattle Seahawks (6-4)

The pick: 49ers (-360)

Spread: 49ers -7.5 | Over/Under: 44 | Moneyline: 49ers -360, Seahawks +285

In what could be a possible playoff preview, the 49ers head to Seattle for a crucial NFC West matchup. The 49ers broke their slump with a dominant win over the Jaguars, while the Seahawks are reeling from a tough loss to the Rams. It’s clear that the 49ers are the stronger team here, and if they’ve resolved their mid-season issues, San Francisco should return to the NFL’s elite. This game will be a good test, but I have confidence in the 49ers to come out on top.
