GREEN BAY, Wis. — As the NFL Divisional Round is set to get underway, a matchup between the Green Bay Packers and the Los Angeles Rams is going to kick off the weekend.
Aside from the regular betting lines that are offered on legal sports betting sites for this game, there are loads of different Packers player prop bets as well that bettors can take full advantage of.
There are player props for Davante Adams, Aaron Rodgers as well as Aaron Jones and how they will perform against the Rams.
Starting with Davante Adams NFL odds, his receiving yard total is set at 100.5 and he has +131 odds to hit the Over mark.
It might sound unusual that he has somewhat of underdog odds to hit over 100.5 yards being that he has hit that mark a total of seven times this season. But, in the Divisional Round, he has his toughest assignment yet and that is going up against Jalen Ramsey who is arguably the best defensive back in the league.
The matchup between Adams and Ramsey will be the matchup to watch here all game long as Ramsey is known for b top receivers this season.
Ramsey has held seven (of 10) receivers (who have posted 1000+ yard seasons) under 100 yards on the game. In fact, he has held all of them to under 60 yards and has allowed just one touchdown against those receivers as well.

Still, Adams is ranked fifth in the league this season for receiving yards at 1,347 and also hit the Over mark in three of his last five games. That being said, this matchup is certainly a toss-up but money can be made taking the Over if Adams gets the ball rolling.
Aaron Rodgers & Aaron Jones
Both Aaron Rodgers and Aaron Jones could have a weight lifted off of their shoulders in this Divisional Round matchup as the Rams star defensive tackle, Aaron Donald, suffered a rib injury against the Seattle Seahawks but is still planning on lining up on the field. It would be to no surprise here that the Packers are going to take full advantage of that.
Starting with Aaron Rodgers, he has +134 odds to throw for over 300.5 yards. This is another prop bet that money could be made on but it is also not surprising that it has longer odds considering the Rams defense is elite against opposing quarterbacks.
The Rams rank number one overall in opponent passing yards per game at 187.7 passing yards allowed per outing and also ranks number one in passing yards allowed per away game as well at 181.3. However, this matchup with Aaron Rodgers could defy the rankings as he has been on a mission this season having gone for 4,299 yards including five 300+ yard games.
Aaron Donald not being fully healthy means that Rodgers and the offensive line will not have to deal with Donald at 100%, which should leave Rodgers more than enough time to make accurate passes. With that, taking the Over here could turn out to be very profitable.
Moving on to Aaron Jones player prop for rushing yards, it is at 85.5 with the over odds at +118. Jones will also have his hands full this weekend as the Rams fourth in the league this season in rush yards allowed per game at 93.9 rush yards per game and are third in the league in rush yards allowed per away game at 89.1 yards per game.
Regardless, Jones has had a spectacular season as he went for 1,104 yards and has hit the Over five times including three times in the last five games.
Donald not being fully healthy here could also have a major impact on the game that Jones has as well as it would open up a hole in the defensive line for Jones to get right through.
