Houston Texans vs. Detroit Lions Prop Bets And Predictions

The first of our two Thanksgiving games sees our annual trip to Detroit to see the Lions welcome their visitors, this year it's the Texans who are in town, with Deshaun Watson coming into the game after a great performance against the New England Patriots.

Deshaun Watson Rushing Yards - Over 34.5 @ -110

One of the things that makes Deshaun Watson such a dangerous offensive talent is his ability when he scrambles. If you don't keep him contained then he has the ability to put you to the sword on the ground. It's notable that Watson has exceeded this total on each of his past four outings.

Keke Coutee Receptions - Over 2.5 @ -180

Randall Cobb misses this game through injury which makes me certain that Keke Coutee will get 3+ receptions. He only has 4 receptions on the season, but hasn't been on the field much. He was targetted 4 times on Sunday and now he's less rusty I'd expect him to haul in 3 of those. It's also likely he gets more looks after a TD grab last time out and the injuries around him. If this doesn't land I'll have egg on my face but the stars are aligning for Coutee to have more than 2 grabs for the first since week 14 last year.

Week 12 is finally upon us. As is tradition we have 3 Thanksgiving games, the highlight of which is the third and final game, which sees the Ravens facing the unbeaten Steelers. On Sunday Night Football we see football's oldest rivalry as the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers meet and on Monday we see the Seahawks at the Eagles. The biggest game of the week for neutrals is probably the Chiefs at Buccaneers, which will pit Tom Brady against Patrick Mahomes.
