NFL Odds: Perfect Panthers vs Cowboys

Cam Newton Panthers

The special Week 12 edition of NFL Thanksgiving Day football just got a whole lot more interesting thanks to the return of Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo last week.

Along with the Lions, the Cowboys are the only other team in the league that hosts a Thanksgiving game each season and this year’s clash with the undefeated Carolina Panthers is shaping up to be a good one. Sportsbooks are expecting this to be a close game, as most shops opened the line at a pick ‘em.

  • The Panthers are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games on the road in November.

Carolina has been one of the most impressive teams in the NFL this season and doesn’t appear to be slowing down any time soon. Thanks to a 44-16 blowout of the Washington Redskins, the Panthers improved to 10-0 SU and 8-2 ATS on the year.
