Nothing says Thanksgiving Day like family, food, and football.

The NFL has become a cherished part of our holiday tradition, an annual feast of football that brings families together around the TV.

This year, we have three intriguing matchups to enjoy. Let’s look at the 2023 NFL Thanksgiving Day schedule, assess the betting odds, and give some early leans for each matchup.

NFL betting odds used for these Thanksgiving games are current as of Monday, Nov. 20, at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Thanksgiving NFL Betting Odds

Green Bay Packers @ Detroit Lions (12:30 p.m. ET)

Packers +7.5 (-110) @ Lions -7.5 (-110)

The first game of our NFL Thanksgiving triple-header will see the Detroit Lions host the Green Bay Packers in an NFC North showdown.

These two teams met at Lambeau Field in Week 4, with Detroit dominating Green Bay 34-20 on the back of three David Montgomery touchdowns.

Although the Packers are coming off an impressive win over the Chargers, it’s hard to go against Dan Campbell‘s squad the way it has played of late.

The Lions should be in every Thanksgiving teaser piece, and laying the points with Detroit is also an enticing option.

Washington Commanders @ Dallas Cowboys (4:30 p.m. ET)

Commanders +11 (-110) @ Cowboys -11 (-110)

The Dallas Cowboys, perennially home favorites on Thanksgiving Day despite mixed results, will welcome the Washington Commanders to AT&T Stadium on Thursday afternoon.

America’s Team has won just five of 13 games on Thanksgiving dating back to 2010 but defeated the New York Giants 28-20 last year to snap a three-game losing skid.

Washington lost to lowly New York for the second time this weekend on Sunday, adding fuel to this significantly large spread.

Dallas has recorded back-to-back blowout victories in similar spots, but for some reason, I think Sam Howell and Co. could keep this closer than anticipated.

San Francisco 49ers @ Seattle Seahawks (8:20 p.m. ET)

49ers -7 (-110) @ Seahawks +7 (-110)

The final game of the 2023 Thanksgiving NFL slate has the shortest spread and the most significance.

The San Francisco 49ers will visit Lumen Field to take on the Seattle Seahawks, with the winner of this NFC West contest claiming first place in the division.

Last season, the 49ers swept the Seahawks in two regular-season matchups and a playoff encounter, asserting their dominance in this regional rivalry. However, Seattle’s defense has improved since then, and Pete Carroll‘s squad will be eager to avenge those defeats in the first of two meetings this campaign.

San Francisco is a good teaser piece to pair with Detroit, but I’ll be tempted to back the home team with the points if Geno Smith (tricep) is cleared to play.
