The Detroit Lions have lost eight straight games on Thanksgiving Day both SU and ATS, and will try to break that streak against one of the NFL's best teams when the Houston Texans visit Ford Field this Thursday.
Houston is 9-1 SU and 7-3 ATS this season and 8-2 SU & ATS in their past 10 road games.
The UNDER is 6-3 over Detroit's last nine Thanksgiving Day games. The Lions are just 4-12-1 ATS over their last 17 games.
Both prior meetings between these teams played OVER the total (2004, 2008).
