  • Thursday’s slate of Thanksgiving Day games isn’t necessarily the most intriguing from a neutral perspective but the middle matchup between the Chargers and Cowboys in which Tony Romo will be on the call might be the most watchable – and listenable – of the lot.

    SHARK BITES
    • The Chargers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games against the NFC.
    • The Chargers are 4-1 ATS in their last five games on Thursday.
    • The Cowboys have scored 16 total points in 2 games without Ezekiel Elliott.

    The visiting Bolts opened as 4-point underdogs but the game was almost immediately bet down to EVEN with a lot of factors – including a questionable Tyron Smith – going against Jerry and company for the Week 12 tilt.

    If the Cowboys’ Pro Bowl left tackle is unable to suit up for Thursday, Dak Prescott is in for a big helping of stuffing from one of the premier pass rushes in the NFL. The Chargers’ duo of dynamic defensive ends has been terrorizing the league this season and they could be in for career days against an offensive line that’s been in the giving spirit, surrendering a total of 12 sacks in two games played without Smith protecting the blind side.

    Dallas is an absolute tire fire of a team right now with injuries and suspensions decimating the lineup and the Chargers, who are finally settled from their San Diego uprooting, look like the best club not currently in the playoff picture.

    Getting the Chargers as a pick in this game feels like a gift from the betting gods given the way the Cowboys have played the last two weeks and it’s one that this pundit won’t be taking for granted.

    Sportsbook Odds & Computer Pick

    Betting fans looking to side with the Dallas Cowboys in this one found them as 4-point favorites earlier in the week at Sportsbook, while the total was sitting at 47.5.

    OddsShark computer NFL score prediction models picked a possible 24-20 win for the Cowboys on Thursday. That score may change during the week, if injury or weather factors alter the numbers, so check the NFL picks page before game time.
