NFL Playoff Odds: Inside prop bets for conference championships
The Green Bay Packers finished the regular season with the most potent scoring offense in the NFL averaging 30.4 points per game. Seattle allowed an NFL-best 15.9 points per game and has given up only eight points per game over its last seven games. Something has to give when the Seahawks host the Packers this Sunday.
Aaron Rodgers is a -125 favorite to throw for OVER 260.5 yards according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com, with the UNDER 260.5 yards going off at -105. Other lines set for Rodgers against the Seattle defense are pass attempts at 33.5 and total completions at 22.5, with both totals paying -125 on the OVER and -105 on the UNDER. Bettors that want to bet on Rodgers to throw an interception can bet the OVER 0.5 interceptions at -155 or the UNDER 0.5 at +125.
The Indianapolis at New England betting matchup pits two of the league's best quarterbacks against each other as Andrew Luck takes on Tom Brady. Andrew Luck is the favorite to finish this Sunday with the most passing yards of the day, going off at +125 to do so, while Tom Brady isn't far behind on the betting board at +200. Aaron Rodgers would pay +300 to finish the day with the most passing yards and Russell Wilson is the longshot at +700.
One of the reasons that Wilson is a longshot to finish with a lot of passing yards is the expectation that Green Bay will see a heavy dose of Marshawn Lynch on Sunday. Lynch is a -110 favorite at the sportsbooks to finish the day with the most rushing yards in the Conference Championships. Eddie Lacy is going off at +120 to be Sunday's leading rusher over Dan Herron (+700) and Russell Wilson (+800).
Rob Gronkowski racked up 108 receiving yards last week and is a 3/1 favorite to finish the day on Sunday with more receiving yards than any other player. Other players in contention for the top receiving yards spot include Jordy Nelson (4/1), Randall Cobb (4/1), T.Y. Hilton (5/1), Julian Edelman (6/1), Brandon LaFell (9/1) and Doug Baldwin (10/1).
