Analysis of Jared Goff’s best bets for the Detroit Lions in 2024

Jared Goff has been excellent over the past two seasons for the Detroit Lions.

In addition to being the ideal leader for a team that is on the rise in the NFL, he has been one of the best statistical quarterbacks in the entire league. He was among the top five quarterbacks in both passing yards and touchdowns last season.

For his efforts, Goff was rewarded with a four-year contract extension that gives him the stability to be the team’s quarterback going forward. As a result, a lot will be expected of him heading into the 2024 campaign and beyond as the Lions enter their Super Bowl window.

With this, he has the opportunity to continue building a solid career within an offense that has been one of the best in the league over the past two seasons.

Below is a breakdown of futures bets involving Goff for the 2024 NFL season.

Passing yards

Best Bet: Over 4,050 (-110)

Goff has surpassed 4,400 yards in each of his last two seasons with the Lions. Even though Josh Reynolds is gone and the quarterback will be without one of his top targets as a result, there is still plenty to offer at receiver for the Lions.

With the team planning to bring Jahmyr Gibbs into the air more of a role, the Lions could have a new high-profile weapon. Additionally, Jameson Williams appears primed for a bigger role after showing flashes of stardom last season.

He’ll also have the benefit of working with All-Pro wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown and emerging tight end Sam LaPorta. Both players had excellent 2023 campaigns and could receive even more targets in 2024.

Goff has also been one of the league’s most durable pass-rushers in recent years. He has played in all 17 regular-season games in each of the past two seasons. With Ben Johnson back as offensive coordinator, the Lions’ passing game should continue to be explosive.

Touchdown passes

Best Bet: Over 25.5 (-110)

Goff has surpassed this number in all but three of his seasons as a full-time starter. With all the weapons he has around him, along with having reliable targets in the red zone, it seems like a safe bet to expect him to surpass this total.

Because the Lions’ primary identity is their running game, there are avenues for the offense to make big plays in the passing game. Johnson is very creative and uses the run as a way to set up the team’s run-fake passing game.

If Williams and Gibbs can reach their potential as receivers, they can create explosive plays that result in touchdowns. This will help increase Goff’s passing touchdown total.

Additionally, St. Brown and LaPorta both had 10 touchdown receptions last year. Among other skills they both possess, it was difficult for opponents to cover them in the red zone. With the Lions generating long drives at some points, these red zone touchdown passes are always in play.
