Best Detroit Lions prop bets for Week 18 vs. Green Bay Packers
The Detroit Lions will wrap up the 2022 NFL regular season Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers, and here are three prop bets to consider for Week 18.
Before getting into the final Detroit Lions prop bets for the season (barring a playoff game, of course), let’s see how Week 17’s prop bets came through. Odds were as of when post was written, and may have changed.
WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, Over 7.5 receptions (+116, FanDuel; -105, DraftKings): 4 receptions
WR DJ Chark, Anytime touchdown (+170, FanDuel; +160, DraftKings): Zero touchdowns
QB Jared Goff, 300-plus passing yards (+180, DraftKings; +148, FanDuel): 255 passing yards
Sad trombone, but such is life when going with a couple aggressive plus-money props in a game the Lions didn’t need to throw the ball much in.
On to Week 18. The Lions get the Sunday night showcase against the Green Bay Packers, in a game that could be a “win and you’re in” for either team, or only for the Packers if the Seattle Seahawks beat the Los Angeles Rams earlier in the day.
Via FanDuel Sportsbook, here are three Detroit Lions prop bets to consider for Week 18.
3 Detroit Lions prop bets for Week 18 vs. Green Bay Packers
Jamaal Williams prop bets
Anytime touchdown, -120, FanDuel
First Touchdown, +700, FanDuel
70-plus rushing yards, +158, FanDuel
All in on Williams props this week. Going against his former team, he is one touchdown shy of tying Barry Sanders’ single-season franchise record for rushing touchdowns. He is also six yards shy of becoming the Lions’ first 1,000-yard rusher since Reggie Bush in 2013 (not to mention the $250,000 he’ll get when he gets to 1,000 yards).
And if the Lions win the toss and get the ball first, getting him a touchdown is clearly on a least one coach’s mind.
In terms of the yardage for Williams, the Packers have the league’s 26th-ranked run defense (141.8 yards allowed per game) and they’re a notch or two worse in yards per carry allowed (5.0, tied for fourth-highest in the league). So give Williams 15-20 carries on Sunday night, which is easily possible, and more than 70 yards cashes in at plus-money with some room to spare.
