Don't be surprised if that trend continues Monday night against the Green Bay Packers.
Goff and the Lions are 11.5-point underdogs against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers at Lambeau Field tonight. The Lions are +420 on the moneyline, meaning a $100 bet on the Lions to win straight-up would win $420, and the total is listed at 48.5 points.
While the betting public leans towards Green Bay to cover the 11.5-point spread despite losing by 35 points in Week 1 to New Orleans, sharp bettors are more convinced. According to WynnBET oddsmakers, 57.6% of the bets are on Green Bay -11.5, but 69.1% of the betting handle is on the Packers to cover. With a blowout expected, there is one player prop in particular that bettors may be able to exploit this evening.
Take the over on Jared Goff's passing attempts vs. Packers
WynnBET has set Goff's total passing attempts at 35.5, with the OVER favored at odds of -125. After throwing 57 times last week to try and keep up with the 49ers, it's hard to fathom a scenario in which Goff isn't throwing all night long.
Bettors should also consider taking the over on Goff's total passing yards of 260.5 (he threw for 338 yards in Week 1), as well as the over 1.5 on total passing touchdowns. Even garbage time still counts in Vegas, right?
Lastly, if you want to take advantage of great boosted odds on the Green Bay side, WynnBET is offering odds of +650 for Davante Adams to get over 100 yards and a touchdown. Adams is facing a depleted Lions secondary that lost starting cornerback Jeff Okudah last week and gave up 41 points at home a week ago.
