|It seems that amongst all the great action in the NFL this coming Thanksgiving weekend, two particular games are attracting most of the attention.|
The Bears head to Tampa Bay as clear favourites but some pundits believe that an upset might be on the cards. With the relative inexperience of Bears’ quarterback Kyle Orton on the road and the prospect of a fired up Buc's defence, this could be a surprise result. However, Tony Delgado of SportingbetUSA says that his customers are firmly behind the Bears, “so far most of our customers are betting on Chicago for this game… 73% are betting on Chicago and 60% on Tampa to cover the over/under which is at 33.'
The other team fuelling the betting fire this Thanksgiving is the Colts, who return home from another road trip still unbeaten are causing speculation to mount about their prospects of going 16-0 this season. Pro-handicapper Bob Acton of UltimateCapper.com raised a few eyebrows recently when he predicted that the Colt's might just finish the regular season unbeaten. With games against Jacksonville, San Diego and Seattle still on the slate, by no means is the road for the Colt's going to be an easy one. Subsequently, odds makers are still lukewarm about the prospect.
