For Sunday’s Week 4 game against the Seattle Seahawks, here are three top prop bets for the Detroit Lions.
Before we dive into this week’s Detroit Lions prop bets, let’s take a look at Week 3’s results.
Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, Anytime touchdown (+105): Did not score
Lions WR DJ Chark, Anytime touchdown (+210): Did not score
Lions RB D’Andre Swift, Anytime touchdown (+110): Did not score
Well, anyway, on to Week 4. Via FanDuel Sportsbook as of Friday morning, here are three top prop bets for the Detroit Lions against the Seattle Seahawks.
3 best prop bets for Detroit Lions vs. Seahawks in Week 4
Lions RB Jamaal Williams, Anytime touchdown (-150)
Williams is tied for the league lead with four rushing touchdowns with four, as he’s been the Lions preferred goal line back. Now, with D’Andre Swift (shoulder/ankle) looking certain to miss Sunday’s game, Williams will get the lead back workload too. Theoretically more overall opportunities will lead to more opportunities to score, not that Williams will necessarily need them to cash this bet.
Lions TE T.J. Hockenson, Anytime touchdown (+130)
Hockenson has had a disappointing start to the season, but Sunday looks like a big opportunity for him. With Amon-Ra St. Brown, DJ Chark and Josh Reynolds all dealing with ankle issues, and Swift headed for a missed game, targets will be available for the Lions’ tight end.
Week 4 is lined up as a “it’s now or never” game for Hockenson. The Seahawks have been pretty generous to tight ends who are pretty much at all involved in their team’s offense through three games, and if Hockenson has less than seven or eight targets it wil be an upset.
Hockenson salvaged his fantasy day with a touchdown on Week 3. A scoring irepeat in Week 4, at plus-money even, feels like a solid bet.
Lions WR Josh Reynolds, Anytime touchdown (+200)
Reynolds had a nice “toe drag swag” touchdown in Week 2, then he set season-highs in targets (10), catches (six) and yards (96) in Week 3. The aforementioned injuries to St. Brown and Chark, with the latter downgraded to a missed practice Thursday after a limited session Wednesday, lines Reynolds up to heavily involved on Sunday.
Week 3’s Lions’ touchdown trifecta didn’t pay off. But they should not struggle to score on the Seahawks’ defense, and the opportunity pie won’t have as many in line for a bite at it this week. St. Brown and Swift are out.
