The Sunday night showdown between the Giants and Packers looks to have some great NFL Odds value when it comes to props and Bovada sportsbook has a great mixture of team and player props to help you turn a profit tonight.


Green Bay Packers O/U 28.5 points

The Giants’ defense hasn’t looked great over the last two weeks, but even so it’s going to take an almost perfect game from Aaron Rodgers and the Packers’ offense to beat them. The Giants are going to do their best to establish a run game but in the end this game might come down to a contest to see who can control the time of possession.

Sure, a shootout is possible, but coming off the bye week the Packers are the fresher team. They will definitely want to keep the Giants’ offense off the field as much as possible, because their defense is pretty messed up right now. Their only chance is going to be to slow this game down and take long drives down the field.

Green Bay is going to take their shots, but as long as the Giants’ secondary can improve from their last two weeks, I expect them to not allow Green Bay to get to 30 points here. A score like 27-21 is much more likely in this one, so add the under for Green Bay’s team total for your Sunday night football week 5 picks.


Free NFL Pick: Under 28.5 (-105) 
Best Line Offered: at Bovada


Aaron Rodgers O/U 20.5 rushing yards

While Aaron Rodgers’ passing yards total from Bovada, top rated sportsbook, is pretty sharp, there could be some value with his rushing yards total of 20.5. Rodgers already has two rushing touchdowns this season and he is averaging 5.6 yards per carry and he has carries of 10 and 14 yards over his last two games.

If the Giants’ defense forgets about him and he breaks off a couple of big runs, that’s all it will take to cash the over here. He has had 51 rushing yards in his last two games and the week off from their early bye should only help his legs in his one.

The Giants’ defense hasn’t allowed many rushing yards to opposing quarterbacks so far this season. However, other than Dak Prescott in Week 1, the other three QBs the Giants have faced so far are pure pocket passers. This is the first time since Week 1 that they have faced a QB that is a threat to keep some plays alive with his legs. As long Rodgers decides to keep the ball on some of those broken plays, look for the over here on Sunday night.


Free NFL Pick: Over 20.5 (-125)

Season NFL Props Record: 35-23-2
