Before unveiling Week 12's Detroit Lions prop bets, let's see how Week 11's prop bets did.

WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, Anytime touchdown (+105, DraftKings; -115 FanDuel): 1 touchdown
RB David Montgomery, Anytime touchdown (-150, DraftKings; -125, FanDuel)-or First Touchdown (+500, FanDuel; +450, DraftKings): 1 touchdown
QB Jared Goff, Over 267.5 passing yards (-114, FanDuel): 236 passing yards

Leaving aside the stretch to a "first touchdown" tentacle on Montgomery, which I tentatively suggested, two of these bets hit.

It's on to Week 12, and a Thanksgiving Day clash with the Green Bay Packers. The Lions won the first meeting, back in Week 4, 34-20 in a game that wasn't as close as the score suggested.

The Lions last hosted the Packers on Thanksgiving in 2013. Detroit is a 7.5-point favorite, so the expectation is they won't have much trouble with the 4-6 Packers.

Via the sportsbook noted, here are our top Lions players props for Week 12.

Top Detroit Lions player props for Week 12 vs. Green Bay Packers

WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, Over 7.5 Receptions (+120, DraftKings, FanDuel)

St. Brown has eight catches in back-to-back games, and at least eight catches in four of his last five. The Packers have the NFL's seventh-best pass defense entering Week 12, but that's flimsy based on a lot of the quarterbacks they've faced so far. In the previous matchup, Lions quarterback Jared Goff had less than 10 pass attempts in the second half.

St. Brown will surely be hyped up for Thanksgiving Day. I'll take the over on 7.5 catches at plus-money.

RB Jahmyr Gibbs, Over 3.5 receptions (-145, DraftKings; -158, FanDuel)

Gibbs has at least five targets in each of his last five games, with four or more catches in four of them. The Packers are middle of the pack across the board against running backs in the passing game, but they haven't really faced someone like a fully unleashed Gibbs as a dual threat weapon.

Gibbs will be a key part of the Lions' offense again on Thursday. Over 3.5 receptions is an easy bet.

WR Jameson Williams, Anytime touchdown (+410, FanDuel; +270, DraftKings)

Williams had his second touchdown of the season in Week 11 against the Bears, and he is on an upswing in playing time with 52 and 65 percent snap shares in the last two games.

More target volume for Williams would be nice, and it may be coming as he clearly earns the trust of the Lions' coaching staff and his teammates. But to cash an anytime touchdown bet, it only takes one target and one catch. At this kind of plus-money, it's hard to turn away from.
