Thanksgiving Thursday is one of the best football days of the year. You get to eat dinner early, shove your face with as much dessert as you want, and watch three top-tier NFL football games for 10 hours straight.
You also get to bet on the games using our exclusive wagering partners at BetOnline.ag, who have the best game props listed for Thursday night’s Patriots vs. Vikings matchup. Here are three of my favorites with a pick for each:
First Score of Game
Minnesota Vikings Touchdown +185
New England Patriots Touchdown +230
Minnesota Vikings Field Goal +320
New England Patriots Field Goal +340
Minnesota Vikings Safety +5000
New England Patriots Safety +5000
The obvious answer here is a Vikings touchdown – and probably a Justin Jefferson touchdown at that.
We’re not here for obvious answer here, we’re here for deep dives! With the Patriots struggling mightily on offense aginst the Jets, they’ll be eager to score first on Thurday. They’ll also want Nick Folk to get his swagger back. Take NE Field Goal +340.
The Pick: New England Patriots Field Goal +340
Over 4.5 Touchdowns -115
Under 4.5 Touchdowns -115
I have it in my game preview that I don’t think the Patriots will win this game. The Vikings will be hungry to win after being embarrassed by Dallas last weekend and will come out with a vengeance.
New England will, however, finally put some points on the board this weekend. They’ll find the endzone twice, Minnesota will three times, and OVER 4.5 touchdowns will hit.
The Pick: OVER 4.5 Touchdowns -115
Margin of Victory
Vikings by 1 to 6 Points +300
Patriots by 1 to 6 Points +325
Vikings by 7 to 12 Points +500
Patriots by 7 to 12 Points +600
Vikings by 13 to 18 Points +700
Patriots by 13 to 18 Points +1000
Vikings by 19 to 24 Points +1200
Patriots by 19 to 24 Points +2000
Minnesota will be on their “A” game on Thursday after their embarrassing loss to Dallas last Sunday – and the Patriots offensive isn’t going to fix itself in just four days.
It’ll be close at the beginning, but the Vikings win this one handily in the end.
The Pick: Vikings by 13 to 18 Points +700
