Heading into Sunday’s Week 15 NFL action, here are three Detroit Lions prop bets to try to cash in with.
Before digging into Week 15’s Detroit Lions prop bets, let’s see how Week 14’s prop bets did.
RB D’Andre Swift, 2-plus total touchdowns (+410, FanDuel): Zero touchdowns
WR Amon-Ra St. Brown: Over 7.5 receptions (+115, Draft Kings) and over 82.5 yards (-115, DraftKings): six receptions for 68 yards
Moving on to Week 15. The Lions will make their second visit to MetLife Stadium in a little less than a month, this time to take on the similarly playoff-contending New York Jets. The point spread is narrow, -1 for the Lions at last check, with a fairly low over-under (43.5 points on FanDuel Sportsbook).
Via the sportsbook noted, as you look to Sunday’s Week 15 NFL action, here are three Detroit Lions prop bets to consider.
3 Detroit Lions prop bets for Week 15 at New York Jets
WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, Over 6.5 receptions (-105, DraftKings)
In what felt like a down game last week, St. Brown had six catches on nine targets. With how well the Jets stifle outside receivers, via the cornerback tandem of Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner and D.J. Reed, St. Brown has a better matchup against slot corner Michael Carter. Add in the Jets’ pretty formidable pass rush, even with stud defensive tackle Quinnen Williams (11 sacks) listed as questionable with a calf issue, and quick, shorter, throws will be an order for Jared Goff on Sunday.
It’s easy to tab double-digit targets for St. Brown on Sunday. With that, at least seven catches should follow to hit the over here.
QB Jared Goff, Over 21.5 pass completions (+100, DraftKings)
Goff won’t be airing it out like he has been against the Jets on Sunday, in a tough matchup his fantasy managers should avoid if at all possible.
But let’s say he comes close to or even hits the over on 32.5 pass attempts (-115 on DraftKings), however narrowly (say 33 or 34). A completion rate around 65-66 percent would be 22 completions on 33 or 34 attempts, and the over here would hit at a little bit of plus-money.
RB Jamaal Williams, Anytime touchdown (+130, FanDuel)
It almost feels like forever since Williams scored, but it’s only been a one-game drought. The Jets have also not allowed a touchdown to a running back in five of their last six games. Don’t expect a three-touchdown outburst like he had in Detroit’s first trip to MetLife Stadium against the Giants, but one score for Williams at decent plus-money is a bet I’ll take this week.
