Monday Night Football, Special Saturday Night Edition, week 17. This Monday night the college bowl games take over, so tonight we have a special Saturday night version of Monday Night Football. Tonight the Dallas Cowboys host the Detroit Lions. Let’s take a look at some of my favorite player prop bets for this matchup. All odds come courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
Lions vs. Cowboys
Dak Prescott, Over 2.5 touchdown passes (+120)
Dak Prescott has been dominant at home, averaging three touchdown passes per game in seven home games. In the Cowboys’ final home game of the regular season, against a bad Lions pass defense, I’ll take the over for Dak Prescott and 2.5 touchdown passes.
Dak Prescott, Over 286.5 passing yards (-115)
In his last five home games Dak Prescott has averaged 320 passing yards per game. I’ll take the over for Dak Prescott and 286.5 passing yards.
Jared Goff, Under 1.5 touchdown passes (-110)
In eight road games Jared Goff has just 10 touchdown passes all season. The Cowboys have the second best pass defense the Lions have faced all season. I’ll take the under for Jared Goff and 1.5 touchdown passes.
Jameson Wiliams, Over 32.5 receiving yards (-125)
Jameson Wiliams has had a rough start to his NFL career, but the Lions appear to be making a concerted effort to get him going. They have targeted Williams 13 times in the last two games after never targeting him more than three times in any of the prior six games. I’ll take the over for Jameson Williams and 32.5 receiving yards.
David Montgomery, Over 54.5 rushing yards (-115)
David Montgomery has gone over 54 rushing yards in 11 out of 12 games this season. Against a mediocre Dallas run defense, I’ll take the over for David Montgomery and 54.5 rushing yards.
Jahmyr Gibbs, Over 49.5 rushing yards (-115)
Jahmyr Gibbs has gone over 49 rushing yards in 7 of his last 8 games. Against a mediocre Dallas run defense, I’ll take the over for Jahmyr Gibbs and 49.5 rushing yards.
