Player Prop Bets for Panthers vs. Packers in Week 15, 2020

| December 17, 2020 3:20 pm PDT

Saturday football is a thing in the NFL in week 15. There are two games to bet on, and if you want to try your hand at betting on players individually, you can check out my Bills vs. Broncos player prop bets.

That game isn’t really projected to be the most explosive, but you can still make money from it. You can make just as much cash on the second game, which sees the Carolina Panthers visiting the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

The story of Saturday’s night game is obviously Aaron Rodgers, who has been a bit of a god at home this year – or just in general.

Rodgers is very much on an NFL MVP tour these days, and he has his Packers sitting pretty atop the NFC. Green Bay has incentive to keep winning, while a nice 51.5 game total suggests this is the more entertaining of the two Saturday football contests.

You can bet on the game itself, but betting on Panthers vs. Packers NFL player props sounds more fun. 

For my favorite bets in this game, read on.

Aaron Rodgers Over 2.5 Passing Touchdowns (+120)

A-Rod shall feast. The current NFL MVP frontrunner, Aaron Rodgers, is in the midst of perhaps the best statistical season of his career.

That’s really saying something.

There also just doesn’t appear to be much reason for him to slow down. Rodgers has records within reach, he thrives at home and in primetime spots, and his Packers need to keep winning.

Carolina doesn’t present much of a challenge defensively, either. The Panthers lack a reliable pass rush, while a previously solid pass defense has slipped in the second half of the season.

The Panthers just gave up four touchdowns to Drew Lock last week and probably have no hope in slowing down this Green Bay offense. Rodgers has also thrown 39 touchdowns in 2020 and has tossed three or more 10 times in 2020.

Mike Davis to Score a Touchdown (+125)

Rodgers feels like a lock to have another big game, but this game made my week 15 NFL locks thanks to the total. I think we’re in for a fun, high-scoring affair here.

That is probably largely going to be thanks to a Packers offense that averages 31.5 points per game at home, but Carolina will also chime in a bit.

At least one of those scores should come from Davis.

Green Bay is notorious for their leaky run defense, and they’ll go into Saturday having allowed over 1,200 yards to running backs. They’ve also given up 13 rushing scores to the position, which is good for second-worst in the NFL.

Davis isn’t an elite back, but he has a tasty matchup ahead of him and should be confident after scoring twice last week. He now has seven total scores on the year and looks like a solid bet to get his 8th in week 15.

Davante Adams Over 6.5 Receptions (-150)

One of the best NFL player props to target seemingly weekly is Davante Adams’ reception total.

The guy gets flat out fed in this offense, as he’s been targeted at least 10 times in eight different games. He’s turned this insane role into crazy production and has safely topped this particular reception total eight times this year.

He just isn’t a guy that can be contained, is the thing.

Adams has seen no fewer than nine targets come his way in each of his last nine contests, and he’s dipped below this 6.5 reception total exactly twice in that stretch.

Carolina’s pass defense is no longer something to fear, and the Panthers have quite the task on their hands trying to stifle Adams on the road. I just don’t see it happening.

D.J. Moore Over 59 Receiving Yards (-110)

Davante Adams probably isn’t the only wide receiver we can make money off of during this Panthers vs. Packers battle, of course.

D.J. Moore is another guy to highlight, as he should be busy now that he’s back from an absence due to COVID-19.

An explosive receiver, Moore can get involved in the offense in a number of ways, and thanks to the presence of deep threat Robby Anderson, it’s pretty arguable he won’t be shadowed by Jaire Alexander all game.

Anderson’s yardage prop (72) is a bit thicker, and Moore has topped this total in each of his last three contests (as well as eight times on the year). Provided he doesn’t face Alexander all game, I love his chances to make it happen on Saturday.

Aaron Jones Over 61.5 Rushing Yards (-115)

Lastly, this feels like a really good spot to bet on Aaron Jones going off to a certain degree. Green Bay has quietly restricted his role a bit to keep him healthy, and he’s been trending in the news after signing with agent Drew Rosenhaus.

That might suggest his days with the Packers are numbered, which can be read in two different ways; Green Bay limits him to lower his asking price on the open market, or they know he’s gone, and they just ride him the rest of the way.

For week 15, I lean more toward the latter.

Carolina is not a scary matchup overall, but they also specifically have issues stopping the run. The Panthers come into Saturday’s NFL tilt, having given up the 11th most rushing yards to running backs, after all.

Matchup aside, this just feels like a low rushing yardage total for such a quality player. Jones still touches the ball quite a bit, and he’s topped this mark in each of his last three games (seven times in 2020).

Jones feels like a pretty good bet to clear 62 rushing yards and make this a winning Panthers vs. Packers prop.

Summary

As you can see, there are numerous Panthers vs. Packers player prop bets to consider this week. 

I expect this game to offer a good amount of scoring, which obviously suggests betting on the Over in a lot of spots could be advantageous.

I love the Saturday NFL player prop bets I’ve detailed, but as noted, you can always find value in betting on the games. If you want to bet on Saturday football action, check out both of our Saturday NFL betting previews below.
