Packers @ Lions OVER (48.5): The Packers travel to Detroit where both teams are desperate for a conference win. The Packers are now a running team with Rodgers out but with Flynn starting the passing game will open up just enough so that Detroit won't stack the box. The Lions on the other hand are coming off their worst performance last week where they were embarrassed by Tamp Bay. Look for the Lions to improve on offense and both teams score in the 30's to cover the over.
Raiders @ Cowboys (-393): The Raiders have to travel to Cowboy stadium on Turkey day. Historically the Cowboys are not very good at home but the Raiders will be starting their backup rookie at QB which makes them one-dimensional with Run DMC back. Dallas does give up a lot of rushing yards on defense so the Raiders will be in it the whole game but the Dallas offense is too good and will get a score late to ice it.
Three late games here:
Missouri (-7) @ Northwestern: The Tigers invade Evasnton bringing their undefeated record with them. The Wildcats have won three in a row and seem to be clicking on offense a bit, however Missouri is a different animal then the teams they are used to seeing. This will come down to guard play and shooting as either team does much scoring in the paint. Missouri's guards are flat out better than Northwestern's. The Tigers stay undefeated in Frank Haith's return.
Creighton @ ASU (+3.5): This spread doesn't make any sense to me. I understand that Creighton is ranked and has one of the best college players in Doug McDermott, but who have they really played? All cupcakes, two of which they struggled with. ASU on the other hand is coming off an impressive win against Marquette and has played in two more games than the Blue Jays. This game is going to come down to rebounds and limiting scoring opportunities for McDermott. ASU has size and allowing 65 points per game. This one will be close but I love the fact that ASU is getting 3.5.
Denver @ Harvard (-6.5): The Crimson is the class of the Ivy league and will certainly be in the field of 64 when it is all said and done. They have the talent to get there and maybe win a couple of games. Denver...not so much. They lost their top scorer to Baylor last year and are only returning three starters. They're 0-2 this year and rank in the bottom of most statistical categories. Look for Harvard to cruise at home.
