Entering the season, we would’ve expected a Sunday Night Football fixture between the Green Bay Packers and Buffalo Bills to be evenly matched. Instead, we get what could be the most lopsided matchup of Week 8.
But whether this contest turns out to be a complete beatdown or a dogfight, bettors can still wager on player props and anytime TD scorer bets for the primetime clash.
Packers vs. Bills Odds and How They Relate to Props
Aaron Rodgers and the Pack have been out of sync all season and cannot catch a break.
After dropping their last three games, Green Bay – priced between +375 and +400 on the moneyline as of Friday morning – must now visit Buffalo to face the brutish Bills (between -475 and -560) as double-digit underdogs.
The Over/Under point total for this contest is 47.5, which is on the higher side among Week 8 matchups.
While the point spread suggests props plays on the Bills, the total implies prop bettors should look at Overs. Of course, all that information is priced into the odds by bookmakers.
Here are current point spreads, moneylines, and totals from legal US sportsbooks.

Player Props, TD Scorer Bets for SNF Week 8
Stefon Diggs Over 78.5 Receiving Yards (-115, DraftKings & Caesars), Anytime TD Scorer (-104, Caesars)
The last Diggs sighting was in Week 6, where he put up a casual 10 catches for 148 yards and a touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs. Now coming off a bye, the NFL’s second-leading receiver is poised to resume his receiving mastery against Green Bay in primetime.
Diggs has shattered his Week 8 receiving prop total more often than not in 2022, logging triple-digit yards through the air in four of his six games. But he’s been just as dangerous in the scoring department, reeling in a touchdown in each of those four contests (six total).
The Packers are the league’s top defense against the pass, though that’s largely due to the fact they haven’t faced a single top-10 scoring offense. The Bills are like nothing that Green Bay has seen this season, so Diggs should be able to find his way at home Sunday night.

Josh Allen Over 275.5 Passing Yards (-115, DraftKings), Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (-215, DraftKings), Under 0.5 Interceptions (-155, DraftKings)
Josh Allen bettors have been having a field day this season. Buffalo’s star quarterback has thrown for 297-plus yards and two-plus touchdowns in all games but one.
If you need more convincing of how ridiculous he’s been playing, then how about the fact that he’s logged more games with four touchdowns (two) than with one or fewer touchdowns (one).
As far as taking care of the football goes, Allen’s been all right. He’s been picked off in half of his games, but fortunately for him, the Packers aren’t a ball-snatching type of defensive unit. The Green and Gold rank 30th in interceptions (0.3 per game), and have forced a pick in just two of their seven contests.
Allen’s passing prop prices are a bit chalky, but the numbers bear it out. In fact, it wouldn’t be foolish to parlay these three props for a sweet payout.

Aaron Jones Under 47.5 Rushing Yards (-113, Caesars)
Backing Jones this season is like playing heads or tails, though it feels like the coin lands on the wrong side more times than not.
The Packers’ 1A running back handled 12-plus carries from Weeks 2-5, racking up 63-plus yards rushing in three of those weeks. Just when we thought he was pulling away from AJ Dillon in the backfield, his touches got dialed back.
Jones’ carries have gone down in each of his last four outings. He totaled eight rushes (fewest since the opener) with just 23 yards to show for it in Week 7.
Likely battling a negative game script and the league’s top rushing defense (76.2 rushing yards allowed, 3.5 yards per carry), it goes without saying that Jones’ lack of usage likely carries into Sunday night.
