Detroit Lions Player Prop Betting Preview

Matthew Stafford has been putting up solid yardage numbers lately but he hasn’t been able to get the ball in the end zone. The Packers defense is a step down from the Steelers and I like Stafford to get some red zone drives into the end zone tonight. The Green Bay Packers rank just 21st in DVOA against the pass and I like the Lions to use a ball control passing game. They paid Stafford a lot of money so they might as well use him (97 attempts & over 700 yards in his last two games). Running backs Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick both struggled against the Steelers. Actually, they have both struggled this whole season and I do not trust either running back to snap out of it tonight. Of the two I would lean to Riddick to get more yards as a better receiver out of the backfield. Wide receiver Golden Tate is not 100% healthy but he should still produce decent numbers. Kenny Golladay has been hurt and that has made playing time for Marvin Jones and he responded with his best game of the year against the Steelers.

Quarterback Brett Hundley has some good running upside and I like him to get some decent rushing yards. As a quarterback passing the ball he needs a lot of work. He just isn’t ready to be an NFL starter and a bye week isn’t going to change that. Even in a blowout I can’t back Hundley to get a lot of passing yards. Running Back Aaron Jones has replaced Ty Montgomery as the top running back and I wouldn’t normally bet on him to get a high number of rushing yards but in this game I see the Packers staying with the run longer than they would normally. This means that the talented Packer wide receivers will be under utilized against a Lions team that can be beat in the air. With Hundley completing just 12 of 25 passes against the Saints last time out I can’t back the receivers to get enough targets to be a viable over bet on yardage. Don’t get me wrong. Someone will get the targets but overall it is a good time to spread money around on the under as I expect the overall number of receptions to be low.
