The Packers at Cardinals is one of the best games of the entire season, and it comes with three NFL player props to bolster your bankroll heading into the weekend.

Kyler Murray – Under 275.5 Passing Yards

Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray has been playing like an MVP, and there’s no reason to think that he won’t have another great game against the Packers. But you have to go back to Week 3 to find Murray’s last game, in which he threw for more than 275 yards.

He had 316 passing yards against Jacksonville but has since thrown for 268, 239, 229, and 261. And those numbers include big wins over the Rams and Browns.

The simple fact is that this Cardinals offense can beat you in several different ways, and Murray throwing the ball over the field isn’t needed, and it won’t be needed against a Green Bay team playing short-handed.

Murray has a big day, but he goes under 275 passing yards.

Randall Cobb – Over 49.5 Receiving Yards

When looking at a depleted wide receiver’s room because of COVID-19 positive tests, Aaron Rodgers summed it up succinctly:

“Other guys have got to step up.”

One of those “other guys” is veteran Randall Cobb, who has always been a favorite target of Rodgers, and he will be even more so on Thursday night in Arizona.

If you’ve been waiting for Cobb to have another 69-yard performance, as he did against the Steelers, wait no longer. This game may match that total.

But even if it doesn’t turn into Cobb’s best game of the season, it will get over the 50-yard mark. Bet this over.

Aaron Jones – Over 90.5 Total Yards

One Packer that is healthy and we know it can be relied upon is Aaron Jones. In a game that is missing some weapons for Green Bay, they will lean on Jones both in the run game and as a pass-catcher.

He was held in check last week by Washington, but in each of the previous five games, Jones went over 90 total yards, including over 100 yards in Weeks 5 and 6. He also has 26 catches on the season and has at least four catches in each of the last three weeks.

His targets will go over those totals this week, and so will his yardage. Take the over.
