Aaron Rodgers

GREEN BAY, Wisc. Aaron Rodgers is looking at his fourth-lowest passing yard total of the season as the Green Bay Packers are set to take on the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday Night Football.

The majority of Rodgers player props are low as well.

There is some speculation as to why legal online betting sites have his numbers set low, but the main reason is believed to be the absence of both Davante Adams and Allen Lazard for the game.

Cardinals Top-Notch Defense

The Arizona Cardinals defense is amongst the best in the league against opposing quarterbacks. The Cards are allowing opposing quarterbacks to throw for just 201 yards per game, the sixth-lowest in the league. It is also worth noting that Aaron Rodgers’ season average is not far off as he is only putting up 235.9 ypg.

While Arizona’s defense against the pass game is elite, their run defense does not compare. They are in the bottom half of the league in rush yards allowed per game at 115.7 yards (18th).

With that, the Packers game plan in this one could be a run-heavy approach. Especially with the Cardinals announcing that pass rusher, J.J. Watt, will be out for the remainder of the season starting in Week 8.

Also, opposing quarterbacks have struggled immensely against the Cardinals secondary. They have only allowed one quarterback to go Over 265.5 in Matthew Stafford (280). They have held other quarterbacks such as Baker Mayfield, Ryan Tannehill, Kirk Cousins, and Trevor Lawrence all under 250 passing yards.

Rodgers This Season

In terms of his passing yard total, Rodgers has only gone over his weekly total and the 265.5 mark two times this season.

Those two games also came against two bottom-half teams in terms of yards allowed per game in the Cincinnati Bengals, and the league-worst Washington Football Team.

As for his touchdown total, the longer NFL odds are on the Over being that he has only hit it two times as well. One of those games came against Washington (3) while the other came against the Detroit Lions (4) who have allowed the third-most passing touchdowns this season with 15.
