Raiders vs. Cowboys 2013 odds: Dallas favored big on Thanksgiving

The Thanksgiving showdown between the Cowboys and Raiders has a big spread in favor of the home team.

The Cowboys will host the Raiders on Thanksgiving in Week 13. The annual Dallas Thursday game will feature the NFC East division co-leader and a 4-7 Raiders team. It is unclear who will start at quarterback for the Raiders, but Matt McGloin has manned that post in Oakland's last two games. With the differential in talent, the Cowboys are understandably a 10.5-point favorite, according to OddsShark.

The Cowboys have scored a lot of points this season but have also given up a ton of scores. For that reason, the over/under for Thursday's game is 45.5 points. The Cowboys have averaged 27.1 points on offense, while giving up 25.4 points on defense. For the Raiders, a 19.4 points per game total is pretty weak, considering they give up 24.5 points on the other side of the ball.

Dallas will host Oakland at 4:30 p.m. ET on Thursday on CBS.
