Detroit Lions vs. Minnesota Vikings Same-Game Parlay: Value With the Lions Offense

I'm always thinking about how I can make my Sundays better. Always. The easiest way is to throw the same game parlay out there. Not just anything, though. It's fun to watch the odds fly up, but it's even more fun to win these bets. (Science has proven it's more fun to win than lose, so don't fight me on this.) What I like doing is finding two-player props that have no chance of losing and tying them together. For example, the Minnesota Vikings vs. Detroit Lions has two absolute bangers perfect for a same game parlay.

Minnesota Vikings vs. Detroit Lions Same-Game Parlay Breakdown (+190)

Lines available at DraftKings at time of publishing.

Jamaal Williams 55+ rushing yards

Mike Zimmer's defenses are usually pretty sound, but this one is terrible at stopping the run. Like really bad. In fact, they are the worst unit in the NFL in the opponent's yards per attempt metric. Now I don't think the Lions are going to win this game and play with a lead, but I still think Dan Campbell will try to run the ball longer than he should. It's not crazy to say that Williams could get 15-20 carries in this game. The last time these two teams met, Detroit ran the ball 24 times. If that happens again, and Williams gets 15+ rushes, I think he'll go over 55 yards easily.

Josh Reynolds 35+ receiving yards

So we know the Vikings can't stop the run, but if we're being honest, they can't stop the pass either, especially against the wide receiver position. So far this season, only four teams have given up more receiving yards to the wide receiver position—2082 yards, to be exact. One Lion wideout that is still flying under the radar is Josh Reynolds. He's only played two games for Detroit, but he's been on the field for at least 88% of the snaps in both games. He only had his former quarterback, Jared Goff, throwing to him in one of those games, and he walked with 70 yards and a touchdown that day. So this game script could easily be one that sees Reynolds getting targets into the 4th quarter. If that happens, 35+ seems like a pretty low bar to clear.
