Texans vs Lions Thanksgiving Day Odds

Published on November 21st, 2012 4:45 pm EST

The 9-1 Houston Texans will travel to Detroit to do battle against the 4-6 Lions on Thanksgiving Day. The Texans/Lions game will be the first of a Thanksgiving Day triple-header that also includes the Redskins/Cowboys and Patriots/Jets.

As you can imagine, the Texans are favored to beat Detroit. For Detroit, this game is a MUST win - if they lose, they fall to 4-7 and have virtually no shot of securing even a wild card spot. If they win, they move to 5-6 and still have hope.

Here are the odds as of this moment:

Houston Texans, -4, EVEN
Detroit Lions, +4, -120

The Over/Under Line is currently set at 50 points:

Over 50, -110
Under 50, -110

The Texans have won their last four straight games and currently possess a perfect 4-0-0 record on the road. The Texans are coming off of a wild come-from-behind victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars last week.

The Detroit Lions have lost their last two in a row and are just 2-2-0 at home this season. The Lions have been doomed so far this season by their divisional record - they are currently 0-4-0 against teams in their division.
