Packers vs. Cowboys prop bets

  • CeeDee Lamb OVER 98.5 receiving yards
  • Jake Ferguson OVER 4.5 receptions
  • Jordan Love UNDER 247.5 passing yards

CeeDee Lamb OVER 98.5 receiving yards

The Packers' defense, specifically their secondary, has been atrocious in the second half of the season. Since Week 10, they rank 25th in opponent EPA and 27th in opponent success rate. They also enter the playoffs ranking 20th in opponent yards per pass attempt, giving up 6.7 yards per throw.

That's going to set things up well for the Cowboys passing game. Lamb enters this game having racked up at least 98 receiving yards in three straight games. He's also averaging a blistering 102.9 receiving yards per game this season. I think Lamb has a big game and leads the Cowboys to a win.

Jake Ferguson OVER 4.5 receptions

Dak Prescott loves to throw to his tight end and Jake Ferguson enters the playoffs having averaged 4.2 receptions per game this season. He has also hauled in at least four receptions in six straight games.

If the Cowboys are going to torch the Packers through the air, Ferguson is going to be a big benefactor of that.

Jordan Love UNDER 247.5 passing yards

Jordan Love has averaged 244.6 passing yards per game this season, a few yards below his set total for Saturday, but yet now he's taking on one of the better secondaries he has faced all season. The Cowboys allow just 6.3 yards per pass attempt, the ninth fewest in the NFL.

They're also top 10 in both dropback EPA and dropback success rate. The Packers' key to success is running the football which is going to hurt Love's passing yards total. I'll take the UNDER.
