Best Lions vs. Cowboys Player Props: Cowboys Dominate at Home?

Lions vs Cowboys Prop Bets NFL Week 17

The Cowboys found themselves on the losing end of Week 16, but they can rebound here at home against the NFC North champion Detroit Lions. 

Below are the three best prop bets for this matchup.

Cowboys vs. Lions Prop Bets

Pick: Jared Goff Over 0.5 Rushing Yards (+100) at Caesars

In Week 16, Goff had three rush attempts but didn’t pick up a yard. However, this is a prop, especially now at +100, that we’ll hit. 

Looking at only touchdowns, the Lions red zone scoring percentage is an incredible 92.31%. 

As they get further into the red zone, we could see some quarterback sneaks from Goff to help cross the goal line if they cannot break through with David Montgomery of Jahmyr Gibbs. 

Goff has two rushing touchdowns this season and 24 designed runs. His three attempts were his most since Week 10. 

This will be a challenging game for the Lions on the road, so look for some unconventional play-calling from the Lions. 

Goff gets his first rushing yard since Week 12 here.

Pick: Tony Pollard Over 54.5 Rushing Yards (-115) at DraftKings

The Lions have been stout this season against opposing running backs, allowing 59 yards per game to the position and just 3.41 yards per carry. 

However, we like Pollard to go over here. 

At home this season, the Cowboys average over 128 rushing yards per game. Pollard has hit the over on this line in just eight games, but we have to be aware of the spread in this game, which favors the Cowboys by six points. They’ve been dominant at home. At home, Pollard has topped this line in all but two games, with one of those being a 53-yard performance. 

Look for the Cowboys to look to Pollard more here than usual.

Pick: Aidan Hutchinson Over 0.25 Sacks (+110) at Caesars 

Hutchinson has just six sacks this season, but he has 87 pressures. He’s been getting to the quarterback, but he's not coming down with the sack. However, in Week 17, he’ll match up with Terence Steele, who’s allowed 49 pressures and seven sacks this season. He last allowed a sack in Week 14 but has allowed at least four pressures in three of his last four games. 

Look for Hutchinson to notch a sack in this one.
