5 Best Prop Bets for Packers-49ers Monday Night Football Game

Aaron Rodgers on Monday Night Football usually produces a great game. And tonight, with two of the NFL's more historic franchises facing off, should be no different. Betting on the spread and/or the over is great, but it's the unique prop bets that can make you some real money.


Let's explore five of the best props available.

5. George Kittle, First Touchdown Scorer (+1300)

George Kittle has become a favorite target of Niners quarterback C.J. Beathard. With wide receiver Dante Pettis out tonight, expect Kittle's usage to increase. If the Niners get the ball first, don't be surprised if they come down and sneak in an early touchdown. And Kittle is a great option to be on the receiving end of that.

4. Aaron Jones Will Rush for 50+ yards and Green Bay Packers Win (+144)

Running back Aaron Jones doesn't get nearly the touches or recognition he deserves. Jones has been a monster this year in the limited opportunities he's had, averaging 6.1 yards per carry so far this season. But, for some reason, head coach Mike McCarthy has only given him an average of eight carries per game.


Maybe this is the night McCarthy finally realizes how much more often this guy needs the ball. If McCarthy changes his ways, Jones will blow past 50 yards and, if he doesn't, Jones will still probably get there. The Packers winning should be the least of your worries in this prop bet.

3. 49ers to Lead at Halftime and Lose Game (+600)

While everyone is expecting the Packers to blow the doors off in this one, the Niners could very well come out and shock people with their offense, just like they did against the Chargers a couple of weeks ago. With solid value here, it might be worth the bet, given we've seen it before from the 49ers against a similarly talented team.

2. Aaron Jones to Score 2+ Touchdowns (+750)

As mentioned above, this could be a good opportunity for a breakout game for Jones. He is going up against the 23rd-ranked rushing defense in the Niners and the Packers should win this game with ease. If the Packers are ahead, as most expect them to be, then the running game will be front and center. Even if they aren't ahead, it will take Rodgers slinging touchdowns from deep to completely take away Jones' touchdown opportunities.  

1. Alternate Line: Packers -20.5 (+270)

Although the Niners could come out and surprise the Packers, it very well could be a total blowout, given the talent difference between these two teams. The line is already hovering around 10, so doubling it up shouldn't be too crazy if the Packers and Rodgers play the game their capable of.
