There is wall-to-wall football on the NFL Thanksgiving schedule with plenty of different ways to bet on the games. In addition to the point spreads and totals for Thursday’s contests, special prop bets are available at various sportsbooks.

The first Thanksgiving game between the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions is among the worst matchups of the entire 2021 season. With Justin Fields out for the Bears and the Lions still seeking their first win of the year, the NFC North battle is expected to be a low-scoring, ugly affair.

You can bet on Detroit or Chicago to score the fewest points of any team playing on Thanksgiving. The Lions are the favorites with +225 odds at Bovada. The Bears have +450 odds to have the worst offensive day of the six teams in action.

The New Orleans Saints are second at +325. They’ll be without Alvin Kamara Thursday night when they host the Buffalo Bills' No.1 ranked defense. New Orleans is 0-3 since Trevor Siemian became the starting quarterback.

The late-afternoon game between the Dallas Cowboys and Las Vegas Raiders is expected to feature the most action. BetOnline makes Dallas 7/4 favorites to be the highest-scoring team of the day. Buffalo is second at 11/4, while Detroit is a distant sixth at 10/1.

The sportsbook has set the over/under for total points scored on Thanksgiving at 139.5.

A bet for Dak Prescott and Derek Carr to combine for at least 575 passing yards has +150 odds at FanDuel Sportsbook. Carr is second in the NFL with 304.1 yards per game. Prescott is seventh with an average of 284.1 yards.

Josh Allen has +200 odds to throw a 50-yard completion. The odds of Ezekiel Elliott totaling 100 scrimmage yards and scoring a touchdown are +250.

Dallas, Las Vegas and Chicago are favored to be the Thanksgiving winners. FanDuel is offering a bet at +550 for all three teams to be leading both at halftime and when their games conclude.

The odds of a Thanksgiving game going into overtime are +480. The last Thanksgiving overtime game came in 2012.
