With the NFC Championship Game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Green Bay Packers quickly approaching, bettors are clamoring to get their wagers in. If you're not into betting on the regular spread or moneyline, or just want some interesting side action outside of that, FanDuel's Same Game Parlay is the perfect chance for that.

While parlaying prop bets within the same game might not always be allowed, FanDuel Sportsbook has plenty of props you can parlay within just the AFC Championship.

1. Aaron Rodgers - Passing Yards: Over 283.5 (-112)

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have the best run defense in the league by a pretty significant margin, with Tampa Bay sitting No. 1 by rush defense DVOA and surrendering a league-best 80.6 rushing yards per game. If Green Bay is forced to abandon the run game, as it was in these teams' first matchup in Week 6 when Aaron Jones was held to 15 yards on 10 carries, Rodgers will be asked to carry the load. That's a scary proposition for any NFL defense. Rodgers has recorded at least 283 passing yards in 11 of his 17 appearances this season, including last week against the Los Angeles Rams, the league's No. 1 overall defense. It didn't matter, as Rodgers put on an incredibly efficient performance, completing 23-of-36 passes for 296 and 2 TDs. If he can do it to the Rams, he can certainly do the same to the Bucs.

2. Tom Brady - Passing Yards: Over 285.5 (-112)

Brady had an up-and-down game against the New Orleans Saints, but he came into that game arguably playing as well as any QB in the league. In his four games prior to the matchup with the Saints, Brady averaged 379.5 passing yards per game. His 199-yard outing against the Saints can be attributed to the fact that New Orleans generates pressure at an elite rate, and Brady isn't the same when under duress. Green Bay is not New Orleans. The Packers had the seventh-lowest pressure rate in the league (20.9%) in 2020. When throwing from a clean pocket, no one had more passing yards than Brady in 2020 (3,958). If the Packers can't get to Brady, this secondary is going to get torched.

3. Aaron Jones - Rushing Yards: Under 61.5 (-110)

As mentioned above, the Buccaneers rush defense is the best the NFL has to offer, and it could be getting even stronger this week with the potential return of defensive lineman Vita Vea. Jones was held to a paltry 15 yards on the ground in the Packers' first matchup against the Bucs. Jones has the ability to be a factor in the passing game, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see the Packers use him more in the short passing game if the run game fails as it did in Week 6.
