The UF Team reveal their top tips for the three Thanksgiving NFL games
Happy Thanksgiving to all our UltimateFan readers!
NFL football is back on our screens during the holiday, with three games scheduled in throughout the day.
The UF Team have picked out their best bets for today’s action, naming three selections that could be worth siding with.
Here are their top tips for the NFL Thanksgiving games.
DAWSON KNOX OVER 37.5 RECEIVING YARDS (-110, FanDuel)
The Lions and the Bills kick off the opening fixture on Thanksgiving, with Dawson Knox’s over/under line on receiving yards appealing to us here.
The Bills TE has been productive in his last few starts, hauling in 11 receptions for 127 yards in the last two games.
Detroit have allowed the fifth most receiving yards per game this to tight ends so far, so it’s likely that Knox could hit his over line here.
TONY POLLARD ANYTIME TOUCHDOWN (-120, FanDuel)
Dallas hosts the Giants in an NFC East crunch game on Thursday afternoon, and we’re siding with Tony Pollard to find the end zone here.
The Cowboys RB holds dual-threat capabilities, as he has put up big performance on the ground as well as in the air.
Pollard drummed up 189 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns against the Vikings last week, so if he is utilized in the same way here, he should find the endzone against a New York defense that has its issues stopping the rush attack.

JACOBI MEYERS OVER 4.5 RECEPTIONS (-113, FanDuel)
The Patriots hit the road in the final Thanksgiving game, as they head to the U.S Bank Stadium to take on the Vikings.
Jakobi Meyers looks to be the value here, with his receptions market holding some interest.
Meyers has beaten the over line in terms of receptions in nine of his last 12 starts and he has registered five or more receptions in two of his last three games.
The Vikings are allowing an average of 14 receptions per game to wide receivers and with Meyers being the lead wideout, he could well see plenty of targets come his way.
