In the early game, the Lions are now even bigger underdogs against the Texans; Detroit opened as a 3-point home underdog in the contest at 5Dimes, but heading into their 12:30pm ET kickoff on Thursday they're now an underdog of 3.5 points.


Patriots Jets: Thanksgiving Day Pick

The New England Patriots will be looking for their fifth straight win this Thanksgiving when they visit the New York Jets Thursday at MetLife Stadium.
