Isiah Pacheco OVER 50.5 Rushing Yards
If you take out Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce, Pacheco might have been the most discussed Chiefs weapon during the offseason. He finished the 2022 season strong and is in line to be the Chiefs’ primary back this year.
Last season, Pacheco averaged 4.9 yards per carry, running with an intensity that was marveled at by many pundits across the league. He has proven to be a valuable asset to this high-flying Chiefs offense and will look to get his season going early. Plus, Pacheco had at least 51 rushing yards in three of his last five games last season.
Travis Kelce is likely out for this contest, a devastating blow for the Chiefs. Look for them to call Pacheco’s name more often as a result, smashing his over.
Jared Goff OVER 260.5 Passing Yards
Jared Goff and Patrick Mahomes have a rich history. When Goff was on the Rams, he faced off against the Chiefs in an epic Monday Night Football matchup, winning 54-51.
These two tend to provide shootout performances, and we’re expecting a big night from Goff. The Lions have invested heavily into this offense, and we’ll have a front-row seat into how their moves have paid off.
We believe he will want to put on a big show in this event, which is why we are projecting his over on 260.5 passing yards.
Jahmyr Gibbs OVER 3.5 Receptions
We might be buying into the Jahmyr Gibbs hype. Can you blame us? After taking Gibbs early in the first round, the Lions told the NFL exactly what they thought of him.
He was a star at the University of Alabama, and many analysts believe he can shine in the NFL. Oh, and there have been reports out of camp that Gibbs could be a high-volume pass-catcher.
We’re rooting for that to happen, especially given the strength of this Lions offense already. With that in mind, we’re projecting Gibbs to have at least four receptions in this game, hitting this over
