The NFL's Week 1 slate features an exciting matchup between the Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints on Sunday afternoon.

Here's three of the best prop bets for this Week 1 clash that was moved to Jacksonville.

Packers vs Saints Prop Bet

1. Alvin Kamara - Any Time Touchdown Scorer (-175)

The Saints' offense is in a much different state from 2020 to begin the year. Top wideout Michael Thomas is out for multiple weeks, and his absence leaves behind few proven weapons for new QB Jameis Winston. That means running back Alvin Kamara should be leaned upon heavily in this opening tilt. Kamara, a dual threat out of the backfield, was the main source of offense for New Orleans last year. He totaled 21 TDs (16 rushing, 5 receiving) over 15 games, and the Saints will need a similar year from him to have any chance at competing. Expect New Orleans to turn to their star RB when they need a score on Sunday.

2. Davante Adams - Receiving Yards: Over 87.5 (-114)

Packers wideout Davante Adams is coming off of a monster year. He averaged a whopping 98.1 yards per game in 2020 as he and Aaron Rodgers proved to be an almost unstoppable duo. And now they're set up to do some serious damage against the Saints. New Orleans could be without several of its cornerbacks, including star Marshon Lattimore, due to injuries and a suspension. That would elevate rookie Paulson Adebo and the recently signed Desmond Trufant to starters on Sunday. Adams is a nightmare even for top-end veterans, so he should have little trouble running rampant against one or both of the Saints' backups.

3. Alvin Kamara - Receiving Yards: Over 46.5 (-114)

Back to the Kamara well. The Saints' offense is primed to run through him on Sunday with Thomas out and fellow wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith questionable due to a hamstring injury. Kamara led this team in receiving targets (107) and yards (756) last year, so he's perfectly capable of carrying the load. Thomas, Smith and Emmaunel Sanders (who left in free agency) also combined for 35.8% of the Saints' total targets in 2020. That's a ton of receiving volume up for grabs, and no one better than Kamara to absorb some of it. Throw in the fact that New Orleans is expected to trail in this game, and the Saints may be forced to air it out often to keep up with Green Bay's high-powered offense. That's a recipe for Kamara to easily surpass his receiving yards total here.
