Editor’s Note: Thursday night’s Ravens-Steelers game has been postponed to Sunday. As a result, DraftKings Sportsbook refunded all bets tied into the original promotion. The new promo applies to the Dallas-Washington game taking place on Thanksgiving Day.
How does turkey and pumpkin pie paired with a Thanksgiving no-brainer sound?
Thanksgiving offers us all the chance to show our gratitude. Not to be left out, DraftKings Sportsbook is showing its users thanks by offering a no-brainer odds boost.
It involves a Thanksgiving night game between the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers.
So what makes this a no-brainer?
Well, only one thing needs to happen for bettors to cash in a winning ticket. Either the Ravens or Steelers need to score a touchdown. It doesn’t matter which player or team does it.
Call it a can’t-miss NJ sports betting opportunity, as both offenses are averaging more than 26 points per game.
OK, new plan…

Chances of Ravens and Steelers scoring TDs
The Pittsburgh and Baltimore offenses both currently rank among the NFL’s top teams in terms of points per game.
Basically, this odds boost is a can’t-miss bet, as the Steelers are averaging a tad under 30 points per game, good enough for fourth in the league. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (24 touchdowns) and wide receivers JuJu Smith-Schuster (eight TDs) and Chase Claypool (eight TDs) are a big reason why.
On the other side of the coin, the Ravens, led by reigning MVP Lamar Jackson (15 TDs), are averaging about 27 points a game, so a touchdown is pretty much guaranteed. Tight end Mark Andrews has six touchdowns.
The bigger question here is how many players will miss Thursday night’s game, as the Ravens were forced to shut down their practice facility due to COVID-19. The two teams learned on Wednesday that the contest is being pushed back to Sunday afternoon.

However, it only takes one touchdown to cash in the winning ticket. So it’s pretty much a sure thing bettors will have something else to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.
