Thanksgiving is a holiday rooted deep in the psyche of American culture. Although all families celebrate the holiday in a slightly different manner, according to beliefs and separate traditions, there are a few things that almost all Americans expect come Turkey-day.
Two thanksgiving activities seem to stick out above the rest. The first is to feast on turkey, stuffing, pie and the whole 9 yards. The second long-awaited activity is to watch the extremely popular Thanksgiving NFL football matches where, this year, Denver’s Knowshon Moreno rushed 88 yards.
Three great matches were held on Thanksgiving day between Green Bay and Detroit, Oakland and Dallas, and the New York Giants and Denver. Although these were great matches and helped Americans to fulfill the traditions of Thanksgiving, they are just the tip of the iceberg as far as games this weekend are concerned. On Sunday the 29th alone, 12 different matches will be held starting at 1:00, 4:05, 4:15 and 8:20.
There’s nothing like watching a few games while letting the Thanksgiving feast digest. The matches that will be held on Sunday, however, are bound to be exciting to the level of giving viewers indigestion. Football is not a sport for the weak, whether watching or playing.
To further spike the excitement of watching NFL football games, some viewers participate in sportsbetting simultaneously. There are many online gambling sites in the USA that make this activity much more accessible to gamblers nationwide.
American gambling laws, contrary to popular belief, do not forbid people from internet sports betting. US residents can bet as they please through online bookmakers hosted outside the country.
Though the regular season has been in progress for a few months now, many Americans feel that the Thanksgiving game is what really gets the ball rolling. Fans feel they can make better predictions on which team will go how far after watching a few weeks worth of play. The Super Bowl, which functions as the final game in the post season, will be held in Miami on Sunday, February 7th.
