A primetime showdown between the Los Angeles Rams (4-9) and Green Bay Packers (5-8) would get fans buzzing heading into the season. However, with both teams not holding up their end of the bargain, we get to watch two disappointing teams battle it out to see which is worse.
But this potentially low-scoring affair may be a great spot to back a few low Overs. Here are a few of the best player props and anytime touchdown scorer bets for Rams vs. Packers on Monday Night Football.
Los Angeles Rams vs. Green Bay Packers MNF Odds
The Pack (between -300 and -333 on the moneyline as of Monday morning) are favored by a touchdown at their very own Lambeau Field against Los Angeles (between +240 and +265), who just broke a six-game losing streak last week with the help of newcomer Baker Mayfield.
The Rams haven’t covered the spread in a game as the underdog (0-2-2 against the spread), and are 4-7-1 ATS overall on the season. Green Bay, meanwhile, is 5-8 ATS this season, including 2-6 ATS as the favorite.
DraftKings bettors are leaning towards the Cheeseheads to win outright (76% of moneyline tickets), though they’re very split on the points (48% of spread tickets on the Packers).
The Over/Under total for this primetime NFC battle is set at 39.5 points on legal US sports betting apps.
Player Props, TD Scorer Bets for MNF Week 15
Christian Watson Anytime TD Scorer (+155, FanDuel & Caesars)
Aaron Rodgers had been waiting frustratingly for months for a receiver to step up, and starting in Week 10, he’s had one: Christian Watson.
Now, Watson likely won’t ever be able to fill the void left behind by Davante Adams, but he’s become a reliable target for the Packers quarterback and is one of the NFL’s hottest touchdown scorers.
Rodgers’ new No. 1 wide receiver has reached the end zone in each of his last four contests (eight TDs in total). He doesn’t catch many balls (3.5 per game over his last four outings), but he knows how to make them count. Rodgers loves him, so we love him as well.

Aaron Rodgers Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (-104, FanDuel)
We haven’t witnessed a single vintage Rodgers showing all year, but for this prop to hit, we don’t need to. All it calls for is a high floor, which has been an underrated part of his 2022 campaign. Rodgers has thrown for multiple scores in nine of his last 12 games.
Fresh off a bye week, Rodgers and company are ready to return to Lambeau Field, where he’s logged multiple passing touchdowns in five of six games. He also gets to work with a fully healthy receiving corps for the first time since Week 2.
As added motivation, Green Bay has an outside shot at making the postseason, and if Rodgers wishes to sneak in, he’ll have to perform well Monday night.

Kyren Williams Over 18.5 Rushing Yards (-115, DraftKings & Caesars)
What’s exciting about this prop is that it might hit in the first quarter, or you might have to wait all 60 minutes of play for it to not hit. Still, we strongly like the Over for two reasons: his recent form and the matchup.
The Rams’ second-string running back doesn’t see many carries, but he’s seen enough to exceed his highly beatable prop total. Williams has topped 18.5 yards rushing in three of his last four games, averaging 24.8 yards over that span.
Green Bay’s pass defense is one of the best in the league, though it can’t say the same about its rush defense. The Packs allow the third most ground yards per game (154.8) and third most yards per rush attempt (5.0).
The Rams will look to exploit Green Bay’s deficiencies on the ground, as have most other offenses this season. The Packers allow the highest run play percentage in the league (44.5%), which should scale up Williams’ rush count.
Ben Skowronek Over 2.5 Receptions (-150, PointsBet) | Over 31.5 Receiving Yards (-110, Fanduel)
Sometimes, a quarterback change is all you need to help unlock your potential. In the case of Ben Skowronek, it was Mayfield who helped the big receiver post career-highs in catches (seven) and yards (89) against the Las Vegas Raiders last week.
Skowronek was on the field for 97% and 100% of the offensive snaps the past two games (missing just two snaps), so he’s naturally going to get looks just by being out there.
