Rams vs. Lions TD bets
- Jahmyr Gibbs anytime TD
- Jameson Williams anytime TD
- Kyren Williams anytime TD
Jahmyr Gibbs anytime TD
Gibbs, a first-round pick in last year’s draft, has continued to see an increase in usage after a slow start to his rookie campaign. Gibbs scored six of his 11 touchdowns in the final five games of the regular season and logged double-digit carries in each contest He finished the season just shy of 1,000 rushing yards while averaging over five yards per carry.
The Lions offense has been a different animal at home this season, averaging 30.5 points per game (24.1 on the road). Detroit should be firing on all cylinders and Gibbs will be a big part of that game plan against an average Rams defense.
Jameson Williams anytime TD
A nice payout here for one of the most explosive players with the ball in his hands. The Lions like to get the ball to Williams in space so he can utilize his speed and take shots to the Alabama product through the air. Williams is averaging 14.8 yards per reception this season.
There’s value in Williams potentially finding the end zone for the first time since Dec. 3. The Lions’ offense registered the third-most passing plays of 20-plus yards in the NFL this season (70) and the Rams’ defense is prone to giving up explosive plays. Over the final four games of the regular season before the Rams rested starters in Week 18, LA’s defense allowed six receiving touchdowns of 29 yards or more to the likes of Darius Slayton (80 yards), A.T. Perry (35), Rashid Shaheed (45), Terry McLaurin (29), Odell Beckham Jr. (46) and Isaiah Likely (54).
Williams missed the regular-season finale against Minnesota with an ankle injury but was a full-go at practice on Wednesday and is expected to suit up.
Kyren Williams anytime TD
Stafford is expected to throw the rock around frequently on Sunday with a passing attempts total of 34.5 and passing yards over/under of 275.5. While Stafford has elite weapons to air it out to, Williams is the biggest reason the Rams offense has been able to peak at the right time.
Williams averaged 114.5 rushing yards per game over his final six contests with six touchdowns. He averaged over 5 yards per carry this season and found the end zone a dozen times. Take Williams to keep his hot streak going in the postseason.
