Heading into Week 14 NFL betting action, here are three Detroit Lions prop bets for Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.
As usual, before getting into this week’s Detroit Lions prop bets, let’s see how last week’s props did (odds as of when post was published, all via DraftKings Sportsbook).
QB Jared Goff, Over 241.5 passing yards (-115): 340 yards
WR DJ Chark, Anytime touchdown (+215): five receptions for 98 yards, no touchdowns
RB D’Andre Swift, Anytime touchdown (+115): 111 total yards, rushing touchdown
In Week 14 the Lions will welcome the Minnesota Vikings to Ford Field. The Vikings won the matchup back in Week 3, 28-24, as the Lions had double-digit leads early and late. Despite being 5-7 to Minnesota’s 10-2, the Lions are narrowly favored as of the latest odds.
Lions-Vikings has a 51.5-point over/under, tied for the highest over/under on the Week 14 NFL slate on FanDuel and DraftKings sportsbooks. So their should be plenty of offense on Sunday, and plenty of production to go around.
Via the sportsbook noted, here are three Detroit Lions prop bets to try to cash in on in Week 14.
3 Detroit Lions prop bets for Week 14 vs. Vikings
D’Andre Swift, Score 2-plus touchdowns (+410, FanDuel)
Coming off his best game since Week 1, and 18 touches, Swift is back on the injury report this week with an ankle issue. But if he’s good to go this week, the matchup against Minnesota is good for his role as the Lions’ passing down back. The Vikings are top-six in catches and receiving yards allowed to running backs this season.
Swift has scored in six of the games he has played in this season. A small bet on him to score twice on Sunday would pay off nicely, assuming he’s active and it stays on the board.
Amon-Ra St. Brown Prop Bets
Over 7.5 receptions (+115, DraftKings)
Over 82.5 receiving yards (-115, DraftKings)
St. Brown has at least seven receptions in four straight games, and in five of his last six. In three of his last four, he has at least nine catches with over 100 yards. The Vikings have been injury-thinned in their secondary lately, and 11 wide receivers have put up at least 80 yards against them this season overall.
Eight catches for 83 yards might be a good half-to-three quarters for St. Brown on Sunday. That’s what it would take to hit the over both of these totals, and a parlay is in play for those who want to go that way.
