Thanksgiving Football Gamblingpalooza 2021

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, with it being Thanksgiving in the USA - and there being three NFL games later today - I thought I'd create a daily fantasy football team and place some bet builder wagers today.

Here's the team I've entered into a £5 fantasy football contest.

I'll explain more on Sunday, but - the previous team I entered (in Week 11) - won £10.

Chicago Bears @ Detroit Lions Bet Builder
I have a bad feeling about this game. Everything is pointing to it being a low scoring game, which makes me suspect it'll surprise. Still, I wasn't comfortable enough to bet on the overs. I picked three selections for this one.

Thanksgiving 2021 Bet Builder: Chicago @ Detroit

Update: The only correct call - in this trio of selections - was the final one. Chicago won 16-14.

Las Vegas Raiders @ Dallas Cowboys Bet Builder
Here's what I've done for the second game of the day. Once again, it's for £5.

Thanksgiving Bet Builder 2021 - Raiders @ Cowboys

Update: I enjoyed this game. Unfortunately, I missed on one of the selections. The one which let me down was Michael Gallup to score anytime.

Buffalo Bills @ New Orleans Saints
After having a gamble on the Raiders @ Cowboys, I was given a free £5 to create a bet builder on the last game. 

Thanksgiving Bet Builder: Bills @ Saints

Update: This one started off well with the longest priced selection - Dawson Knox any time touchdown scorer - coming in early. The next two came in, but the game did not go over the total.

With me missing out by one selection in the second game, my bookmaker gave me a free £5 bet. So, I technically got 3 bets for the price of one because I already had a free bet from that game to bet on the Bills @ Saints.

I just have to hope I don't miss whenever I play the next bet builder.
