4 Best Prop Bets for Lions vs Packers NFL Week 6 Monday Night Football Game
The Detroit Lions will travel to Green Bay to take on the Packers in a divisional showdown for Week 6's "Monday Night Football" game. Green Bay is currently listed as a 3.5-point favorite, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
If you're looking for an alternative way to wager on this one, here are four of the best prop bets for Sunday night's game.
1. Aaron Rodgers Passing Yards: Over 262.5 (+102)
Aaron Rodgers may have only gone over 263 passing yards once this season, but he draws a good matchup against a Lions' defense that's giving up an average of 280.8 passing yards per game, which ranks No. 29 in the NFL. Additionally, the Lions have surrendered at least 263 passing yards in three of their four games this season. The lone exception came in Week 3 against the Eagles and Carson Wentz, who threw for 259 yards.
2. Parlay Props: Aaron Jones & Kerryon Johnson - 70+ Scrimmage Yards Each (-135)
Aaron Jones and Kerryon Johnson have both had some up-and-down games this season, but when it comes to averages, they should both be in a solid spot here. On the season, Johnson has averaged 87.6 scrimmage yards per game this season, while Jones has averaged 90.4.
3. First Touchdown Scorer - Aaron Jones (+500)
After a slower than expected start to his season, Jones exploded in Week 5 against the Dallas Cowboys, scoring four touchdowns. Jones has been fantastic at getting into the end zone with eight rushing touchdowns on the year, which is the highest total in the NFL, despite having only played five games. He's now scored the first touchdown in back-to-back games, and has a chance to do so again here, as the Lions have surrendered 1.2 rushing TDs per game (T-No. 26 in the NFL).
4. Any Time Touchdown Scorer: Kenny Golladay (+175)
Kenny Golladay has been great at getting into the end zone this season, hauling in four touchdowns in four games thus far. In his last game, Golladay hauled in two scores against the Kansas City Chiefs. His matchup is certainly tougher this week, but the Packers have surrendered five passing touchdowns over their last two games.
