NFL Week 12 Picks: Houston Texans vs. Detroit Lions

NFL handicappers may fade the Detroit Lions (4-6) when making their against-the-spread (ATS) picks the rest of the season, as they prepare to take on the Houston Texans (9-1) on Thanksgiving Day at Ford Field, with the opening kickoff scheduled for 12:30 p.m. ET on CBS.

The Lions are currently four-point home underdogs in the Week 12 NFL betting odds (courtesy of SBR Forum), while the total has settled in at 50.5 in the market.

It's hard to imagine that Thursday's host is capable of making a run into the playoffs, considering it trails both the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers by three games in the NFC North standings.

Let's take a closer look at this non-conference affair from a betting perspective, while offering a pro football prediction along the way.
