The Detroit Lions will host the Los Angeles Rams in the Wild Card round of the 2023-24 playoffs, in what should be one of the most exciting matchups in the first round. Adding to the excitement, the folks over at DraftKings Sportsbook have provided us with some interesting player prop bets to consider for the game.
Amon-Ra St. Brown, OVER 88.5 receiving yards (-115)
Big-time players step up in big-time games, and there isn’t a skill player on the Lions offense that emulates that more than Amon-Ra St. Brown. Fresh off earning All-Pro honors, St. Brown is still stewing over being a Pro Bowl snub and is using that as motivation to prove the doubters wrong.
Over the last month, St. Brown has exceeded this betting line in all four games, putting up 144 and 106 receiving yards against the Vikings, 90 against the Cowboys, and 112 against the Broncos.
With a fresh new look for the playoffs and a defense that could have problems slowing him down, the Lions will look to ride the Sun God into the divisional round.
Amon-Ra St. Brown, Anytime touchdown (+110)
In addition to the yardage output over the last month, St. Brown has also scored a touchdown in each of those four games. Additionally, on the season, he has scored a touchdown in 10 of his 16 games played.
Chances are that he finds the blue paint in this game as well.
Jameson Williams, OVER 33.5 receiving yards (-115)
Despite coming off an ankle injury, Williams is expected to be a full go for this game and when you look at his usage over the past month, it’s easy to like this betting line.
While he missed last week's game against the Vikings, he had 69 receiving yards against Dallas despite playing just over a half of football. In the prior two weeks, against the Vikings and Broncos, Williams secured 43 and 47 receiving yards respectively.
But it’s not just the output that should entice you here. Williams has been incorporated in the Lions offensive game plans more and more as of late. He had three targets against the Cowboys before being injured, six targets against Minnesota, and seven against Denver.
With an increased volume of targets, combined with home run potential every time he touches the ball, as well as a defense that should have trouble with his speed, Williams could exceed this expected total on just one play.
