Dallas has been unlucky during their last ten Thanksgiving Day games. However, the odds are with them for the Raiders vs Cowboys game.
The Cowboys have always been a Thanksgiving fixture. So you should know where to bet on Thursday. Also, the Raiders are visiting them this year. At present, Dallas is 1-9 ATS in their last ten Thanksgiving games. They are coming from a loss against Kansas City last Sunday. On the other hand, the Raiders haven’t won in three games in a row.
Raiders vs Cowboys Betting Picks
According to our bookie pay per head experts, the Cowboys opened -7.5. However, the line came down from that. Some sportsbooks posted a half-point hook on the spread. The total opened at 50.5 points and increased to 51.5 with Under -112.
The Cowboys are missing some key players for the Thanksgiving Day game, including RB Ezekiel Elliott, WR CeeDee Lamb, and WR Amari Cooper. However, Dallas doesn’t depend on a single player to win games.
Quarterback Dak Prescott wants many options for his passing game. He completed 20 or more passes to six different players this season. Also, Michael Gallup is back in the lineup. Dallas fans name him as the best wide receiver in the lineup.
Prescott also passes to TE Dalton Schultz and WR Cedric Wilson. Even if Lamb is unavailable, it will not slow down the Cowboys’ offense. Also, Elliott will play even though he is suffering from a sore knee. He would likely share short receptions and carries with Tony Pollard.
The Cowboys’ defense needs to step up if they want to win the game against the Raiders. They need to limit the Raiders’ scoring opportunities throughout the game.
