As usual, before revealing Week 7's Detroit Lions' prop bets let's see how Week 6's prop bets did.
RB David Montgomery, Over 20.5 Rushing Attempts (+106, FanDuel): 6 carries
Montgomery, Over 2.5 receptions (-130, DraftKings): 1 reception
WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, Anytime touchdown (+150, FanDuel; +135, DraftKings): One touchdown
Ideally but not necessarily, since he left game injured, all sportsbooks refunded any Montgomery bets for Week 6. But we'll take the St. Brown anytime touchdown at nice plus-money as a good win for the week.
The Lions will hit the road again in Week 7, to take on the 4-2 Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens have stood as narrow favorites all week, three points in most sportsbooks. Two of the best defenses in the league brings the possibility of a lower-scoring battle that will be won in narrow margins.
With the sportsbook you can find them on noted (more than one sometimes), here are our three top Lions prop bets for Week 7.
Top Detroit Lions prop bets for Week 7 at Baltimore Ravens
WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, Over 6.5 Receptions (+105, DraftKing; +102, FanDuel)
St. Brown returned after a one-game absence last week, and all he did was set career-highs for catches (12) and yards (124) with a touchdown against the Buccaneers.
The Ravens entered Week 7 allowing the second-most targets and eighth-most catches to wide receivers this season. If there's way to beat them, and beat them through the air, it's through St. Brown, Josh Reynolds, Jameson Williams, etc.
An over bet on 6.5 catches for the "The Sun God" is too easy, and plus-money seals it this week.
WR Jameson Williams, Anytime touchdown (+700, FanDuel; +360, DraftKings)
Williams only needs one play to cash an anytime touchdown prop, as evidenced by his big play in a big moment last week. It's not about volume of plays for him right now, it's about making impactful plays when he's on the field.
At big plus money, a small investment would cash out nicely if Williams scores again. It's the definition of a low-risk, high-reward bet. We like those.
RB Jahmyr Gibbs, Over 3.5 receptions (+124, DraftKings)
Gibbs is back in action this week after missing the last two games with a hamstring issue. And with Montgomery out, no less an authority than head coach Dan Campbell has lined the rookie up for a large workload.
Some of that workload should come in the passing game. According to FanDuel/numberFire, the Ravens are 26th in the league in adjusted fantasy points allowed per target to running backs. That translates to an exploitable area of their defense, and one their opponents to this point haven't really exploited.
If 3.5 catches for Gibbs on Sunday feels high, that thought is well-founded in a broad sense. But I'll go a little aggressive here, and take the over at plus-money.
