Week 15 of the NFL season will end with an interesting game on Monday Night Football, in which the Green Bay Packers host the Los Angeles Rams. It was supposed to be a great match when it was first announced, but neither team has kept its end of the bargain.
There are many ways to bet on this match, including betting options on players. If you want to go that way, here are five of the best player bets for Rams vs Packers.
Aaron Rodgers: Over 232.5 air yards (-115)
It’s been a strange season for Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers, as he just doesn’t look like himself. Rodgers has thrown for just 2864 yards and has also thrown nine interceptions.
However, the Los Angeles Rams are not a dominant defense and this will give Rodgers a chance to have a great day in the air. Take Rodgers’ more than 232.5 air yards.
Baker Mayfield: Over 199.5 yards through the air (-115)
Baker Mayfield is starting with the Rams after leading them to a win back a week ago. Mayfield will audition for a chance to continue his NFL career and will be determined to have a great performance in this game.
Green Bay has a secondary that can sometimes leak and should be another great performance for Mayfield in this game. Take the more than 199.5 air yards as you try to keep up with Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.
Christian Watson: Over 44.5 receiving yards (-115)
Christian Watson has quickly become Aaron Rodgers’ main target, especially in the red zone. Green Bay will try to rack up air yards throughout the game and Watson will have a great day.
Don’t expect it to be a big day for Watson’s Packers offense, but he’ll get enough goals to surpass the 44.5 yards received in this game.
Cam Akers: Less than 55.5 rushing yards (-115)
It’s been a tough season for Cam Akers and the Rams’ whole ground attack has also been a huge disappointment. Akers has rushed for just 376 yards this season and Los Angeles is averaging just 86 rushing yards per game.
Los Angeles tends to drop out of the race early in games and that’s exactly what will happen in this one. Take the less than 55.5 rushing yards for Akers, as the Packers will stop on the ground.
Aaron Jones: Score a touchdown at any time +140
Someone in this game will have to find the end zone and you should expect to see it coming from the running back position. There won’t be many points scored, but the Packers should be more successful than the Rams.
Running back Aaron Jones is always a weapon for the Packers and will get the ball in the red zone. Bet Jones to find the end zone in MNF and get a pretty good payout along the way. See our prediction for Rams vs Packers.
