Packers vs Falcons
NFL Prop Bet Predictions

Green Bay Packers

Aaron Rodgers struggled in the first half against the Seahawks last week, but he still managed a 300+ yard. I know everyone will be on him today so bet early before the odds go down. I have this game as a shootout with both quarterbacks going over 300 yards. Ty Montgomery is going against the 28th ranked DVOA against the run defense. Even better is that the Falcons are not good at stopping pass catching running backs. The Falcons give up a lot of short passes. Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams will both get plenty of targets and shots at turning short gains into long ones with a missed tackle.

Atlanta Falcons

Matt Ryan threw for 392 yards in last year’s playoff win and the Packers didn’t trade for a top corner back during the week so Julio Jones will get his passes. The Ryan/Jones handcuff will be a top play in fantasy football and it should be in prop betting. Take them both. I might add more bets on them as the day goes on. Tevin Coleman and Devonta Freeman continue to split reps, with Freeman getting a 60%/40% snap edge. That might be an advantage because there will be so many offensive plays in this game that each should get several opportunities to get yards. Julio Jones vs the Packers (12/180/2 in the playoff game; 11/259/1 in 2015). He will get his and will go over 100 receiving yards. The Packers are good vs tight ends, so I am laying off of Austin Hooper this week as the ball will more likely go to Devonta Freeman.
