Thanksgiving Day Best Prop Bets
Kalif Raymond Over 1.5 receptions +130 at BetMGM – 12:00 pm ET
Detroit Lions wideout Kalif Raymond has eclipsed this reception prop in seven of the Lions’ 10 games. Raymond has been targeted multiple times in eight of his ten matchups this season.
Green Bay has been stout against the pass this season, but quarterback Jared Goff trusts Raymond. This is a terrific price for a prop with an excellent chance of hitting.
CeeDee Lamb Under 6.5 receptions +114 at DraftKings – 4:30 pm ET
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb is the Cowboys’ top wideout. He has a great matchup Thursday with a Commanders secondary, allowing the 30th-most passing yards per game.
That being said, Lamb may not see his usual complement of targets as Dallas is heavily favored, and the Cowboys may jump out to an early lead and not need the All-Pro wideout.
Jaxon Smith-Njigba Under 3.5 receptions +120 DraftKings – 8:20 pm ET
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba is having a fantastic rookie campaign, but he may have a tough go of things Thursday night against a San Francisco 49ers defense, allowing the 15th-most passing yards per game.
Smith-Njigba has failed to secure 3.5 receptions or more in five of his last ten and won’t have it easy to snag four passes against San Francisco.
Brock Purdy Over 250.5 passing yards -114 FanDuel 8:20 – pm ET
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy has a terrific matchup with a Seahawks secondary allowing the 22nd-most passing yards per game.
Purdy has cleared this passing prop mark in eight of his ten games this season, including each of his last four. Seattle hasn’t stopped anyone all year, and they won’t keep Purdy from exceeding this passing prop.
