Breaking down the best prop bets for the Green Bay Packers' Week 2 matchup.

The Green Bay Packers are looking to move to 2-0, but the team continues to deal with injuries to important offensive pieces in Aaron Jones and Christian Watson. 

Because of that, we have to pivot a little bit in the prop market with who we’d consider wagering on. 

Still, I think I have three plays that will hit in Week 2, and one is trusting the Green Bay defense to slow down Atlanta’s feeble passing attack.

Let’s break these picks down: 

Packers vs. Falcons best NFL prop bets

  • AJ Dillon Anytime Touchdown Scorer
  • Desmond Ridder UNDER 186.5 Passing Yards
  • Tyler Allgeier Anytime Touchdown Scorer

AJ Dillon Anytime Touchdown Scorer

AJ Dillon could be in line for a massive workload in Week 2 if Aaron Jones is unable to play. Jones has not practiced all week with a hamstring injury. 

Dillon was not good in Week 1, carrying the ball 13 times for 19 yards, but he could end up in a bellcow role in Week 2. 

For what it’s worth, Atlanta allowed Miles Sanders to rush for 72 yards on 18 carries. If Dillon sees that kind of usage, I like his chances of finding the end zone. 

Desmond Ridder UNDER 186.5 Passing Yards

Let’s be honest, Atlanta isn’t going to win games by throwing the ball a ton. 

Desmond Ridder threw the ball 18 times in Week 1, completing 15 of those passes for just 115 yards. That’s simply not going to get it done to clear this prop, especially after Green Bay held Justin Fields in check in Week 1. 

Until Ridder actually starts airing the ball out, which may never happen, he’s an auto-fade in his passing yards prop. 

Tyler Allgeier anytime touchdown scorer

If we’re going to bet on any Falcon to score, Tyler Allgeier may be the best bet at +175. 

The second-year running back found the end zone two times in Week 1, and he’s part of a one-two punch with rookie Bijan Robinson. 

Robinson is more explosive, but he’s a lot closer to even money to score than Allgeier. I’ll take a shot on the No. 2 back punching one in this week.
