NFL point spread: Jets vs. Cowboys, Colts vs. Falcons

The preview of the Thanksgiving football games, including point spread and odds, New York Jets vs. Dallas Cowboys and Indianapolis Colts vs. Atlanta Falcons.

NFL point spread: Jets vs. Cowboys, Colts vs. Falcons Two top-tier NFL teams will have the chance to improve their records and assert their bid for the 2008 Super Bowl and are good opportunity for the bettors to get some action in the middle of the week. In the first game we'll look at, The Dallas Cowboys (9-1) are welcoming the New York Jets (2-8)  for a Week 12 game, which is to be enjoyed during Thanksgiving in Dallas and dreaded in New York. The point spread on the New York Jets vs. Dallas Cowboys is currently sitting at -14 points chalk the Cowboys at the betting website Bodog Sports. At the online sportsbook Bookmaker the 'Boys are odds favorite at -900 and the visiting Jets are underdog with betting odds +650. No surprises are expected by the bettors, as well, and the favorite pick among punters is Dallas. NY Jets are 1-4 against the spread in their last 5 games on the road and Dallas is 8-3 ATS in its last 11 games. The question remains if the Dallas Cowboys will pace themselves to save energy for the much more important game against the Packers next week, but even at half-effort the Cowboys will likely cover the -14 points spread.

 Another Thanksgiving football game that is also less prone to surprises is the match-up between the Indianapolis Colts (8-2) and the Atlanta Falcons (3-7). Last week Tampa Bay visited the Falcons to leave a 31-7 scar and the Colts are expected to do even more damage. At Bodog Sports the point spread on the Indianapolis Colts vs. Atlanta Falcons is posted at -12 points chalk the Colts and Indianapolis should have no problem covering it. Atlanta is 5-2 against the spread in its last 7 games and Indianapolis is also 5-2 ATS in its last 7 games.
