The Thanksgiving nightcap features the New England Patriots and Minnesota Vikings at US Bank Stadium, and a parlay of the same game is the perfect way to enjoy the holiday finale.
New England takes to US Bank Stadium in the heat of competitive AFC action. The Patriots are 6-4, and a road win in Week 12 would be a boon to their chances of earning a postseason berth.
The Vikings are in cruise control with an 8-2 record and a four-game lead in the NFC North. However, the Dallas Cowboys simply dominated them as they won 40-3 in Week 11. That could lead to additional motivation to build on their 4-1 home record for the Minny Faithful.
Here are my parlay picks on the same game for the Week 12 Thanksgiving Day matchup between the Patriots and Vikings (odds via FanDuel Sportsbook; Pick Confidence is based on a 1 to 5 star scale).

Same-Game Parlay Predictions for Patriots-Vikings
Vikings -6.5 (+162) ★★
This alternative spread from the Vikings is below the key number of 7, and they also play at home in a short week. Expect the Vikings to show a rebound after the Cowboys dominated them, and they should be especially energetic on offense.
The Patriots’ No. 1 ranking in defensive DVOA is an obvious concern. But I expect the Pats to be less disruptive with the quick turnaround ahead of a road race.
In addition, New England’s offensive line is smashed, with left guard Isaiah Wynn (foot) already ruled out, and both center David Andrews (thigh) and right tackle Yodny Cajuste (calf) listed as questionable.

Thielen Over 49.5 Receiving Yards (+114) ★★★
Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen averaged five receptions for 53.9 yards on 7.5 targets during the eight games leading up to the Week 11 outlier against the Cowboys.
Expect him to be more involved on Thursday, with the Patriots focusing on slowing No. 1 wide receiver Justin Jefferson and running back Dalvin Cook. The Patriots are fourth in DVOA against No. 1 receivers, but they fall back to producing the 20th-ranked DVOA against opposing No. 2 wideouts.
Hockenson Over 39.5 Receiving Yards (-154) ★★★
Similar to the earlier leg of this same game parlay, Minnesota Vikings tight end TJ Hockenson is well positioned to thrive as a secondary weapon against the Patriots.
Hockenson has racked up 21 of 28 goals for 149 yards through three games with the Vikings. He also cleared this yardage total in two out of three outings. He will take advantage of the New England defense that also targets Jefferson and Cook.
