Turkey Day is fast approaching folks and truth be told there’s only two things you REALLY need over the Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend – Leftover stuffing and top notch gambling advice.
Now Hi-Top can’t help you with the first of those but we certainly can help you rack up the cash on your preferred legal gambling app of choice (and if any of said apps are listening Hi-Top is open for spon-con deals – hmu)
So let’s not waste anytime pretending to eat Aunt Sally’s boiled carrot disaster dish and get right to the picks.
Hi-Top Bets Top 5 Thanksgiving Weekend Gambling Plays
5. The Egg Bowl
If not exactly the best rivalry game in College Football it’s at least the best named one. This year Ole Miss sits as a 1.5 road dog even though they are ranking 13 spots higher and have 2 more wins than the Bulldogs.
The Play – Take the points. Rebels roll in Starkville. OLE MISS +1.5
4. Cincinnati at East Carolina
The Bearcats are desperate to crack that Top 4 and get into the CFB Playoffs. Me thinks that desperation just might come back to bite them in the tails against a good East Carolina squad.
The Play – Once again take the points. East Carolina will relish the opportunity to play spoiler and 14 points is a lot to overcome for a Cinncy squad that’s been playing close games lately. EAST CAROLINA + 14
3. Duke vs Gonzaga – Men’s Hoops
The marquee matchup of the early College Hoops season will be this Friday night’s game as the country’s two top freshman face off in Duke vs Gonzaga. You know we HAVE to back our boy Chet but it’ll most likely be the ‘Zags upperclassmen that swing the tide in this one. There’s no spread on this game as of yet but the Money Line odds would be a great kicker for anyone looking for some parlay action.
The Play – The Bulldogs led by their Senior strength will take care of business against a young Duke squad. GONZAGA MONEY LINE
2. OSU v Michigan
The best college football game of the weekend will hopefully be a reinvigorated version of THE GAME. 2006 was probably the last time this matchup held any real significance in the CFB landscape and this year it could have major implications on the playoff seeding. The early line has OSU giving up 8 on the road. Normally Hi-Top LOVES a good home dog but not so much with CJ Stroud playing at Heisman levels like he has lately.
The Play – The Buckeyes will not only win they will roll and look to humiliate their rivals. OSU -8
1. NFL Thanksgiving Crap-O-Rama
What a slate of games the NFL has on tap for Turkey Day. Wow. We haven’t seen this much crap all at once since last Thanksgiving when Cousin Tommy plugged the toilet after his fifth helping of pumpkin pie. But seriously folks, these games STINK. But like the Lil’ Dogg tells his lil’ pups – you get what you get and you don’t get upset. You play the hand your dealt so here’s the picks to make.
The Play – Since the games are such duds why not liven things up with a little 3-Way action. PARLAY BEARS-‘BOYS-BILLS
That’s it folks. Facts is facts and the fact is the only way to fix your self esteem after your tenth helping of pie is to wash that grub down with some well advised bets. Winning cash always makes a bloated belly feel better.
