Heading toward Sunday’s Week 11 NFL action, here are three Detroit Lions prop bets for their road game against the New York Giants
Before getting into Week 11’s Detroit Lions prop bets, let’s check Week 10’s results.
RB Jamaal Williams, Anytime (-120) or First (+650) Touchdown, DraftKings: Touchdown, but the last not the first
WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, Over 74.5 receiving yards (-110, DraftKings and BetMGM): 119 yards
QB Jared Goff, Under 0.5 Interceptions (+105, DraftKings): 0 interceptions
Not too bad last week. But now it’s on to Week 11.
The Lions have won back-to-back games, and on Sunday against the Giants they’ll try to make it three in a row for the first time since 2017–Jim Caldwell’s final season as head coach. The Giants are 7-2, but they’re only favored by three points on Sunday as a clear show that they have a flimsy good record.
With odds via the sportsbook noted, here are three top Detroit Lions prop bets for Week 11.
Top Detroit Lions prop bets for Week 11 at the Giants
WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, Over 76.5 receiving yards (-120, BetMGM, -115, Draft Kings)
Brown’s ankle injury appears to be fully behind him, and it has shown over the last three games. The absence of T.J. Hockenson after a trade and some others has led to heavy target shares for the Sun God, and even with DJ Chark and Josh Reynolds possibly returning to the lineup Sunday there’s no reason for that role to go away.
Jared Goff is sixth in yards per attempt against the blitz this season, and the Giants have the highest blitz rate in the league (39.7 percent). The mesh point there is targets flowing St. Brown’s way, as the Giants are allowing a 64.4 percent target share to wide receivers, with catches and yardage coming.
QB Jared Goff, Over 226.5 passing yards (-120, BetMGM)
Goff’s aforementioned proficiency against the blitz and Giants’ defensive coordinator Wink Martindale’s aforementioned blitz-heavy tendencies looks fortuitous for the Lions’ signal caller. The Giants are not great against the run, despite being stingy in fantasy points allowed to running backs, so the Lions will go to the ground plenty on Sunday if they can. But the same could have been said agains the Bears last week, and Detroit didn’t get a lot going on the ground against a bad run defense.
Goff may not hit this over by a lot, in a close game where he won’t have to throw a bunch. But 226.5 yards is too tempting to turn down.
Amon-Ra St. Brown, Anytime touchdown (+145, DraftKings)
St. Brown has not scored a touchdown since Week 2, but this anytime touchdown bet is -115 on BetMGM. So I’ll lean to the plus-money bet on DraftKings. St. Brown is due for some scoring correction, without too deep a dive the hunch here is the drought ends on Sunday.
