The Detroit Lions head on the road to face the New Orleans Saints in Week 13. Kickoff from Caesars Superdome is set for 1 p.m. ET as both teams hope to rebound from disheartening losses last week. The Lions were handily upset by the Green Bay Packers 29-22 on Thanksgiving, while the Saints suffered a 24-15 defeat to the Atlanta Falcons that knocked them out of control of the NFC South, for the time being.
Here are some of the best player prop bets to target as the Lions face the Saints on Sunday.
Lions vs. Saints player prop bets
Jared Goff — Over 1.5 passing TDs (-120)
Goff had a rough outing in last week’s loss to the Packers, which was highlighted by three lost fumbles on the afternoon. And yet, the former No. 1 overall pick found the end zone twice through the air, marking his third straight game with more than one passing touchdown.
Goff has thrown for multiple passing touchdowns in six games this season, and despite the tough road matchup, should be equipped to continue the trend as a means of erasing the memory of their Week 12 underwhelming defeat. The Saints are also giving up 1.3 passing touchdowns per game to quarterbacks.
Amon-Ra St. Brown — Under 81.5 receiving yards (-115)
St. Brown is averaging 99.3 receiving yards per game this season, but a matchup with a very capable Saints secondary feels like a finish under his receiving total is in order. New Orleans is allowing 196.3 passing yards per game this season, which is good for seventh-fewest in the NFL. If anything, we could see Goff look to spread the ball around or even leverage his running backs as a check-down option.
Jahmyr Gibbs — Over 44.5 rushing yards (-115)
Jahmyr Gibbs rushed 11 times for 54 yards last week while adding four receptions (on eight targets) for 19 receiving yards. Simply put, he remains a focal point in the offense even alongside David Montgomery, and perhaps last week’s negative game script was a factor in him being held out of the end zone.
Prior to Week 12, Gibbs scored in four straight games, and with the need to get back on track, look for him to jumpstart that streak once more while rushing for over his allotted total.
