The Green Bay Packers are in a tough spot in Week 12 as they are trying to keep their playoff hopes alive on the road against the 9-1 Philadelphia Eagles

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is dealing with a serious injury, but he’s expected to play in this matchup against Philly. 

The Eagles’ offense has slowed down over the last few weeks, but the team still has the best record in the NFL. There are so many ways to bet on this Sunday Night Football showdown, but let's focus on some props. 

Here are three of my favorites for Packers-Eagles in Week 12: 

Best NFL Prop Bets for Packers vs. Eagles

  • Christian Watson Anytime Touchdown Scorer
  • Jalen Hurts OVER 47.5 Rushing Yards
  • Aaron Jones OVER 55.5 Rushing Yards 

Christian Watson Anytime Touchdown Scorer

Christian Watson has officially arrived for the Packers, making eight catches over his last two games for 155 yards and five touchdowns!

Watson’s elite speed makes him a threat to find the end zone on just about any long pass, and Aaron Rodgers is clearly starting to find some confidence in his young wideout.

The Packers are likely going to be playing from behind in this game, so it wouldn’t shock me if Watson finds the end zone in Week 12. 

Jalen Hurts OVER 47.5 Rushing Yards

Jalen Hurts got back on track on the ground in Week 11, carrying the ball 16 times for 86 yards and a score against the Indianapolis Colts. 

Now he faces a Green Bay defense that is susceptible to getting beat on the ground, and I think the Eagles utilize Hurts’ legs as much as they can. 

Hurts hasn’t thrown the ball as well over the last two weeks, so it’s possible Nick Sirianni tries to get his quarterback going in other ways against a defense that allows 4.6 yards per carry this season. 

Aaron Jones OVER 55.5 Rushing Yards 

Aaron Jones has been up and down all season long, but with Rodgers hurt, this is a spot for the Packers to lean on their star running back. 

Jones has five games where he’s gone above this number, and with Jordan Davis out, the Eagles have been beatable on the ground, allowing 4.6 yards per carry this season. 

Green Bay is going to need to give Jones enough touches to pass this number, but with the team struggling, controlling the pace and clock in this game will be crucial. 

I’ll take the OVER for Jones with this number below 60.
