GREEN BAY, Wis. – The Green Bay Packers are taking on their NFC North rival, the Minnesota Vikings.

Passing Yard Total – Aaron Rodgers
- Over 270.5 -115
- Under 270.5 -115
The Vikings have one of the better passing defenses in the league as opposing QBs only average 238.6 passing yards against them. These numbers do not reflect the legal sports betting sites as Rodgers has shown signs of slowing down.
He has only gone Over 270.5 yards three times this year compared to the nine times he did last season. Minnesota has only allowed three opposing quarterbacks to hit the Over all season in Russell Wilson, Kyler Murray, and Dallas Cowboys backup QB, Cooper Rush – all who attacked the right side of the Vikings defense.
- In Week 2, Russell Wilson saw 13/24 completions to the right side and had 298 passing yards.
- The following week, Kyler Murray had 400 passing yards and had 11 of 29 completions to the right.
- Cooper Rush went for 325 passing yards including his two longest completions of the game.
Rodgers has struggled to throw to the right side all season long which could affect his NFL player prop odds on the Over.
When throwing 20+ yards to the right the league average passer rating is 78.5. Rodgers is averaging a 74.7 passer rating. From 10-20 yards to the right, Rodgers is throwing a 90.3 rating which is above the league average of 77.2.
If Rodgers can play the underneath routes, bettors may be happier than him attempting to throw deep. Kickoff is at 1 p.m. EST in Minnesota on Sunday.
