We’ll cap off Week 2 of the NFL season with an NFC North matchup between the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers with huge opportunities for MNF prop bets.
Both teams are looking for their first win on the young season, but it is the Packers who are listed as massive 11.5-point favorites. Both teams did allow 30+ points in the opener, so the 48.5-point could certainly be attainable if the offenses come to play.
In this article, I will sort through the best MNF Prop Bets for Week 2 in the Lions-Packers matchup. Let’s take a look and see what the best areas are to target:
Best MNF Prop Bets Week 2: Lions at Packers
3-Leg Parlay: Packers ML & Davante Adams 100+ Receiving Yards and Anytime TD (+285, PointsBet)
A nice three-leg parlay victory would be a great way to cap off the Week 2 slate. The Packers should easily win this game, and they’ll likely want Adams to get going. In the opener, Adams had a modest five catches on seven targets for 56 yards. Tonight’s matchup is considerably easier, as the Lions are one of the worst defenses in the NFL. Not to mention, they’ll be without 2020 first-round pick CB Jeff Okudah for the rest of the season. Detroit showed some spunk on offense last week, so this game does have some sneaky shootout potential which adds more optimism to Adams’ outlook.
Jared Goff: 250+ Passing Yards and 2 TD Passes (+220, PointsBet)
There’s a nice odds-boost opportunity on PointsBet that can pay off huge dividends if Goff has a big night. As I mentioned above, both teams had awful days defensively in the opener. If that’s the case once again, that means that Goff will be put in plenty of throwing situations, making the Lions more aggressive on offense. While Detroit does have some injury issues at the WR position, there’s still a strong nucleus of weapons with RB De’Andre Swift and TE TJ Hockenson. WRs like Quintez Cephus and Amon-Ra St. Brown are capable of filling in for some quality snaps as well.
AJ Dillon – Over 35.5 Rushing Yards (-125 at BetMGM)
I expect the Packers to score plenty of points and have this game in hand well before the final whistle. We have already seen a few teams letting their RB2 getting some meaningful carries, and even spell the No. 1 guy some in the process as well. Dillon was already expected to have a bigger role with the team this season, but he got lost in the pass-heavy game script during the Week 1 loss to the Saints. There should be plenty of garbage time for Dillon to cash in on, especially since the Lions allowed a 100-yard rusher in the season opener.
