Thanksgiving is the holiday to sit back with your family, watch Football and eat until your stomach bursts. There are 3 NFL games for this Thanksgiving, featuring key match-ups with teams desperate to win in order to get into the playoffs. Expect plenty of close battles for turkey day.

Minnesota Vikings +2.5

This is a great line to catch the Minnesota at, although +3 would be perfect. Expect the Vikings to win by a touchdown on the road versus the Lions, but if things get close, it doesn't hurt to have the points. The last time these two teams played, Matthew Stafford led the Lions to a game-tying field goal, eventually beating the Vikings 22-16 in overtime.

The Vikings have changed up some key offensive personnel, so this game won't be like the first match-up.

Dallas Cowboys -7.5

The Cowboys are playing their brand of football right now, going for 9 straight covers against the spread. No one knows how long the streak will last, but look to ride the wave until it fades. The Cowboys won at home versus a capable Ravens defense last week, 27-17. Look for a similar score this Thursday against Washington. The Redskins have picked up some impressive wins and Kirk Cousins looks like a bearable quarterback, but they are not in the same conversation with Dallas.

Pittsburgh Steelers -7

Originally, the Colts looked primed to take down the Steelers on prime time television.

However, Andrew Luck is doubtful to play as he's now on concussion protocol, making the Steelers heavy favorites. Even if Luck plays, the Colts' defense is porous, giving up more than 27 points per game. A team like Indy will not win against Pitt unless they can stop the Steelers offense, but Big Ben, Antonio Brown, and Le'Veon Bell have different plans.

The Steelers always have an upswing in the second half of the season, so expect them to pick up wins on the road against teams like Indianapolis.

So the Vikings, Cowboys, and Steelers are going to make for some exciting games, just like last Sunday. But no matter which teams you pick for this Thanksgiving, be safe these holidays and enjoy some incredible football.
