Best Detroit Lions prop bets vs. Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13

SideLion Report

Moving to Week 13 NFL action, here are three Detroit Lions prop bets to consider against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

As usual, let’s see how Week 12’s Detroit Lions prop bets did before moving on to Week 13 (odds at time of post, and may have changed).

RB Jamaal Williams, Anytime touchdown (+100, FanDuel): One touchdown
RB D’Andre Swift, Anytime touchdown (+170, FanDuel): Zero touchdowns
WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, Over 7.5 receptions (+112, FanDuel): 9 receptions

Swift was close to scoring a touchdown on Thanksgiving Day, ruled down a couple yards short. Almost only counts in a couple scenarios, but 2-of-3 isn’t too bad,.

Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars is what fantasy football managers and bettors would call a good “game environment.” Indoors, rather than outdoors in early December weather? Check. A high over-under? Check–51 points on DraftKings Sportsbook. A narrow point spread? Check, the Jaguars are favored by one point on DraftKings.

With that in mind, here are three Detroit Lions prop bets to consider for Week 13. Odds via DraftKings Sportsbook.

Detroit Lions prop bets for Week 13 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

QB Jared Goff, Over 241.5 passing yards (-115)

Goff fell just short of this yardage last week against the Bills (240 yards), who are a much tougher defense than Jacksonville. The Jaguars have allowed more than 250 passing yards in seven of 11 games this season, including four in a row and five of their last six.

There’s a lot to like about Goff’s matchup this week. Betting on him getting 242 yards feels easy.

WR DJ Chark, Anytime touchdown (+215)

Going toward the revenge game angle here, because it’s just kind of fun.

But Chark had a bigger role against the Bills in Week 12 (52 snaps), in his second game back after and extended absence with an ankle injury. The Jaguars are also not a very good secondary, and Chark is a physical mismatch as long as he’s right physically.

Red zone opportunities shouldn’t be an issue, and Lions offensive coordinator Ben Johnson would surely like to get Chark a touchdown against his former team.

RB D’Andre Swift, Anytime touchdown (+115)

As previously mentioned, Swift nearly had a touchdown last week (he eventually had a two-point conversion instead). So he was that close to visiting paydirt in six of his eight games this season. He is seeing consistent snap shares now, and head coach Dan Campbell suggested he may see a little more against the Jaguars.

Via ground or possibly air, I’m going back to the well and taking a plus-money bet on Swift to score this week.

Note: Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
