The NFC North-leading Green Bay Packers (10-3) take on the AFC North-leading Baltimore Ravens (8-5) this Sunday afternoon in a pivotal clash.
Green Bay is fresh off a 45-30 victory over the Chicago Bears last Sunday night and looks to be as healthy as can be this time of year. Aaron Rodgers is looking to continue his MVP-caliber season against a team that he hasn’t played much throughout his career.
Rodgers has 27 touchdowns to just four interceptions this season on 3,219 yards through the air.
On the Ravens’ side, it’s unknown if quarterback Lamar Jackson is going to play. He’s dealing with a sprained ankle after last Sunday’s loss against Cleveland and hasn’t practiced all week.
Baltimore is also trying to not lose its third straight game, which would drop their overall record to 8-6.
Let’s dive in to find the best Packers vs Ravens prop bets for this weekend’s clash.

Packers vs Ravens Prop Bets: NFL Week 15 Prop Betting Picks
Aaron Rodgers: Over 2.5 Passing Touchdowns (+155) at Caesars
Normally I would do the Under here since Rodgers has only had four games of three or more touchdown passes. With how banged up the Ravens secondary is, though, I like the Over to hit.
Marlon Humphrey and Marcus Peters will be out for this matchup, which means the Ravens are down both of their outside starters. It also means it’s up to Jimmy Smith, Anthony Averett, Tavon Young, and Chris Westry.
Calais Campbell may also be out, too, which would be a huge loss on the defensive line. He’s one of Baltimore’s best pass rushers and has 39 total tackles (20 solo) with 1.5 sacks this season.
I like the Over for our NFL bet of the day and think Rodgers will be able to pick the Ravens secondary apart throughout the game.
First Scoring Play: Baltimore Field Goal (+370) at Caesars
The Packers will be fired up for this one right out of the gate, but they’re still going to give up first blood. I was burned last week by thinking Green Bay would score first and ultimately, it was the Bears who opened with a field goal and then a touchdown.

No matter who starts for the Ravens, they’ll be able to score first as the Packers have struggled to open the scoring this season. Green Bay doesn’t have a touchdown to open the scoring in 10 of its 12 games this year.
The Packers also haven’t scored a field goal first in nine of their last 10 games.
Now, I still have the Packers winning at the end, but they’re usually a team that locks in as the game goes on.
Packers to Win by 1-6 Points (+285) at Caesars
Make no mistake, this is a game that the Packers need to win. They’re trying to get home field for the NFC playoffs and they’re going up against a team that is severely banged up.
That said, the Ravens have played very well throughout the season with their backs against the wall, so this is going to be a tougher game than some think it will be (it’s being played in Baltimore).
Look for the Packers’ playmakers to make some big plays on offense, and for the Packers defense to make a splash play in order to win this game by up to a touchdown (for the record, I have Packers -5.5).
