For as long as both franchises have been part of the NFL, it's surprising the Dallas Cowboys and Las Vegas Raiders have only played each other 12 times. The 13th meeting between the two happens on Thursday in the second of three NFL games played on NFL Thanksgiving Day 2021. Dallas has won the last three games between the two, the most recent of which came back in 2017. In select markets, you can stream the game on Paramount+.

Kickoff for Cowboys vs. Raiders is set for 4:30 p.m. ET from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Week 12 NFL picks for Raiders vs. Cowboys

Before you tune in to Thursday's Cowboys vs. Raiders game, you need to see the NFL picks from SportsLine's advanced computer model. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up almost $7,300 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. The model enters Week 12 of the 2021 season on an incredible 130-91 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.

The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick'em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

For Raiders vs. Cowboys, the model is backing the Over. The opening line for the game total came in at 54.5, but many expected a shootout between Dallas and Kansas City last Sunday that never materialized. The same might be said for the Raiders following their game against Cincinnati, but Vegas and Cincinatti combined for just 566 yards.

The reality of last weekend is that the Cowboys have been down playmakers on offense, as wide receiver CeeDee Lamb was sidelined in the first half with a concussion. In three of the last five weeks, the Raiders' defense has allowed opponents to run up more than 350 yards of offense, including Kansas City two weeks ago, which finished with 516. Las Vegas caught Cincinnati coming out of its bye week, which gave the Bengals an added opportunity to come up with a successful defensive strategy to slow down the Raiders.

Even on a short week with Lamb and Amari Cooper (COVID-19) out, the Raiders and Cowboys should have enough playmakers available to try and erase the memory of last Sunday's lackluster showings and push the score on Thanksgiving.
