Thursday Night Football Predictions for Week 17

Dallas Cowboys vs Tennessee Titans (Thursday December 29, 8.20pm, Amazon Prime Video)

Week 17 kicks off with the 11-4 Cowboys visiting the 7-8 Titans. Dallas has already clinched a playoff berth but the Titans are on the brink of missing out. That upset loss to Houston in Week 16 saw them lose possession of first place in the AFC South to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Here are our predictions for the big game in Nashville on Thursday night:

Dallas Cowboys (-10) to beat Tennessee Titans (-110 PointsBet)

It is not easy to cover a 10-point spread, especially on the road on a short week, but there are a ton of reasons for believing this might be an exception to the rule.

The Cowboys offense is humming right now with Dak Prescott in aggressive mood and CeeDee Lamb developing into the true WR1 the Cowboys always hoped he would. Throw in the addition of T.Y. Hilton to take the top off opposing defenses, and this is a team built to put up a ton of points.

Dallas ranks third in the league in points per game, behind only Philadelphia and Kansas City, and is coming off a three-game spin where it averages more than 33.

The Cowboys do have defensive issues with the loss of CB Anthony Brown for the season, leaving a major hole on their secondary. Sadly for Tennessee, the Titans do not appear to be set up to exploit that.

Starting QB Ryan Tannehill underwent ankle surgery this week in a bid to make it back before the season ends, but it will be rookie Malik Willis who gets the start on Thursday night. So far he has showcased some of the terrific running ability he possesses, but he is nowhere near what is required in the passing game.

You can either see this as an opportunity for Willis or an opportunity for the Dallas pass rush to feast, we prefer the latter. Expect ballhawk Trevon Diggs to be on the lookout for more picks took.

Like we said it’s difficult to cover 10 on the road, but these Cowboys appear to be built for the job. Tennessee is wounded prey right now. Dallas covers.

Ezekiel Eliott Anytime Touchdown (-110, BetMGM)

Okay, so we have zero clue why Elliott is STILL such great odds to find the endzone, but we are not complaining.

Zeke may not be the unquestioned number 1 back in Dallas now after the emergency of Tony Pollard but he remains the battering ram that weakens opposing defenses. And crucially he remains the weapon of choice for the Cowboys when they get deep in the redzone.

Elliott has scored in each of his last EIGHT starts, and yet sportsbooks have this bet as virtually a 50/50 shot still? Come on man.

Zeke is yet again terrific value to hit paydirt.

Which TV channel shows Thursday Night Football?

FOX is out of Thursday Night Football from 2022 and Amazon Prime has the exclusive rights to TNF – safe to say it is gearing up in a big way.

Prime has announced that the great Al Michaels will head up its booth in 2022 after leaving Sunday Night Football, while college behemoth Kirk Herbstreit will join him as the color guy.

Starting in 2022, Amazon will air 15 Thursday Night Football games a year via Prime Video to Amazon customers with a Prime membership. The games will also be televised in the home markets of the playing teams.

As well as luring Michaels and Herbstreit to TNF, Amazon also has on board Fred Gaudelli, a 24-time Emmy-winner, as executive producer.

Amazon had already made a big play to try and lure Hall of Famer Troy Aikman out of the FOX booth to go all in on TNF, but the former Dallas Cowboys QB instead landed with Worldwide Leader ESPN on Monday Night Football, along with longtime FOX partner Joe Buck.

The Amazon deal for Thursday Night Football will run for 11 (ELEVEN) years, and is costing Jeff Bezos a cool $1billion per season.

FOX Bet Super 6

FOX Bet has a terrific free-to-play which more than 5million football fans play every week – Super 6 – and there’s a game especially for Thursday Night Football.

The prize is a cool $25,000 and you’ll need to answer correctly six questions about what happens Thursday night. All you need to do is download the app and predict away – full details are here.

Which site is best for predicting football?

There are a lot of websites which claim they are best, but to be sure you really need to look at their results on a regular basis.

How do you pick a winning football team?

Obviously if you watch football regularly you will have some thoughts already, but it is sensible to look at the data. If you are thinking of betting a QB to throw for Over 280 yards for example, how often does that QB achieve that number? And how often does the defense he is playing against give up that number?

What is the easiest option to win a bet?

Moneyline is the most straightforward of all bets – you are literally betting a team to win, nothing else, no spreads, no caveats. Parlays are way more difficult to hit as you need all of your bets (called legs) to win.

How do I bet and win responsibly?

You should never ever bet more money than you can realistically afford. You should also keep track of all your bets so you know how much you are betting, and also how much you are winning or losing. If you think you may have a gambling problem, or think somebody you know has one, you can call 1-800 GAMBLER for crisis counseling and support.
