Week 12 kicks off early this Thursday with the traditional Thanksgiving Day triple-header, live on Sky Sports 2 HD.

First up, Detroit (4/7) host AFC front-runners Houston at Ford Field, with the Texans currently 5/1 joint-favourites in the Super Bowl betting alongside Denver and New England.

Houston needed overtime to beat Jacksonville 43-37 last week, and they're 7/2 to likewise beat Detroit by a margin of 1-6 points and are 10/11 to be the last team to score again.

Washington are the visitors to Cowboys Stadium to face Dallas in an NFC East match-up to continue the NFL's Thanksgiving Classic, and Mike Shanahan's troops are 6/1 to emerge victorious courtesy of a winning margin of between 7-12 points.

The hosts are 13/2 to be leading at half-time but succumb to the Redskins by full-time, while the final quarter to be the highest scoring can be backed at 7/4.

The Cowboys will be looking for a positive start as they aim to close the gap on the Giants ahead of New York's clash with Green Bay on Sunday Night Football, with a touchdown to be the first score of the game available at 8/13.

Finally, New England face AFC East rivals the Jets, with Bill Belichick's side favoured at 10/27 for a fifth straight win, while the hosts are 23/10.

The Patriots head into the game on the back of a 59-24 thrashing of Indianapolis last week, but it's a 28/1 long shot in our NFL betting odds for a repeat performance by crushing the Jets by 31-36 points.

The Jets will be in buoyant mood following their 27-13 win at St. Louis last week and are 4/1 to be leading at half-time before seeing out another victory, and 5/4 to be the first team to score. Meanwhile, in our specials market, you can back over 3.5 Field Goals at 5/4.
