This Week’s In-Play Menu: Key NFL Divisional Matchups Take Center Stage

An 8-game In-Play menu for this week’s football action is highlighted by some key tussles for NFL divisional supremacy.

The slate opens on Thursday night, when the 3-6 Buffalo Bills host the 4-5 Miami Dolphins at 5:20 p.m. PT. The Dolphins have recently hit a 2-game skid, but if they can right the ship now, a run to a wild card berth in the AFC playoffs is not out of the question with the conference significantly weaker this season than in recent years.

On Sunday, off of a bye week, the Green Bay Packers are out for their fifth straight win, while the Detroit Lions hit the most important stretch of the season. Sitting at 4-5, there is hardly any turnaround time between Sunday’s 10 a.m. PT home kick-off against Green Bay, then Thursday’s Thanksgiving showdown at home against the NFL’s best team – the Houston Texans. The Sunday In-Play schedule concludes with the Baltimore Ravens hitting the road to take on the Ben Roethlisberger-less Pittsburgh Steelers with first place in the AFC North on the line at 5:30 p.m. PT.

Mid-way through each week during the football season, William Hill will release its schedule of games available for In-Play wagering for the upcoming football week. In-Play odds are available at all William Hill locations throughout Nevada (both full-service and kiosks) or through the new William Hill Mobile Sports wagering application, which can be utilized on your iPhone, iPad, Android smartphone, Android tablet or Blackberry device.
