Thursday Nights just got a lot more physical

TAGs: atlanta braves, Baltimore Ravens, NFL, Thursday Night Football

As soon as the clocks get turned back you have an extra hour to get more shit done. It’s a season for giving, with holidays like Thanksgiving just around the corner, if you’re American that is, but there’s something else wholly American that is the gift that keeps on giving during this season…Football. No longer could it be held to simply just Sunday and Monday, around this time of the year, Thursday is NFL time too.

Sportsbooks couldn’t be happier. Not only do you get a college football game for bettors to wager on but also with the NFL on Thursdays, it’s just another big day in the week. Thursday night games generate plenty of excitement and really wet a bettor’s appetite looking to double up either his Monday Night winnings or break-even heading into the weekend. For this reason props as always have major value.

They couldn’t have picked a better team than the Raven’s to play on Thursday Night. The energy Ray Lewis brings, the smash mouth style football the Ravens play, it certainly will be a true test for the Falcons and Matty Ice. How many interceptions does Matty Ice throw? How many fumbles does Ray Lewis cause or recover? How may TD’s will Joe Flacco throw? Everyone is always on Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Drew Brees and even Phillip Rivers’ jock, but from week 3 until now, Joe Flacco has been as good as they come. The Ravens have Ed Reed the pick 6 bandit back and they just might be the team to hoist that Super Bowl crown with their lethal combo of offense and stingy defense.

These days, with the new pussy NFL rules, a prop that could be of value is “how many ‘illegal’ hits to the head will be flagged”?
