Best Prop Bets for Packers vs. Panthers
- Aaron Jones OVER 52.5 rushing yards
- Jordan Love UNDER 33.5 passing attempts
- Bryce Young UNDER 176.5 passing yards
Aaron Jones OVER 52.5 rushing yards
The Panthers continue to have one of the worst run defenses in the NFL, ranking dead last in the league in opponent EPA per rush. That should set up Aaron Jones for a big game. who racked up 53 yards on just 13 carries last week against the Buccaneers, who are one of the better run defenses in the league.
Now, we just need him to hit 53 yards once again but this time in a much easier matchup. Count me in.
Jordan Love UNDER 33.5 passing attempts
Jordan Love has thrown a ton of passes this season, averaging 34.7 passing attempts per game. But, now that they're taking on a team as bad as the Panthers, they may run the ball more than usual. Not only do the Panthers rank last in opponent EPA should rush, which should encourage them to run the football, but if the Packers take a significant lead they may just opt to try to drain the clock by keeping the ball on the ground.
I'll take the UNDER on Love's passing attempts in hopes the Packers don't need him to throw the ball as often as he does.
Bryce Young UNDER 176.5 passing yards
Bryce Young hasn't gone over 176.5 passing yards in two straight games which means this is a perfect bounce-back spot for the Packers secondary, which has struggled in recent weeks. I'm looking to fade the No. 1 overall pick in as many ways as possible the rest of the season.
