Week five in the NFL concludes with an interesting matchup when the Green Bay Packers travel to Las Vegas to face the Raiders. Both teams have struggled with their new quarterbacks so far this season.
Green Bay is coming off getting dominated on Thursday Night Football by the Detroit Lions. While the final score was 34-20, the Packers were down 27-3 at the half, and the game was never really in doubt for the Lions. The Packers will look to get back on track as they are getting healthy again.
The Raiders have been far from promising to start the season. Jimmy Garapollo hasn’t been as productive as he was with San Francisco in the past few years. He will need to get the ball out as fast as possible to Davantae Adams before Green Bay’s pass rush makes for a bad day in Vegas.
We have found some props for this game that might just get you paid on Monday night! Let’s break down the plays.
In week one, Aaron Jones was heavily involved in every part of Green Bay’s offense. This will be Jones’ first game back since suffering a hamstring injury in Week 1.
I’m the first game of the year against the Bears, Jones recorded a touchdown and injured himself on the play. He was held out of the remainder of the game with an apparent hamstring injury.
Jones should continue to be used as a dump-off and screenplay running back with the young and inexperienced Jordan Love under center. Jones has always been used as a receiver in Matt LaFleur’s offense, as they tend to run plays that leave him wide-open in the middle of the field.
In Jones' first and only game, he had nine carries for 41 yards, two catches on four targets for 86 yards, and a touchdown. While we know this Raiders defense is nothing to brag about, we still expect Jones to be used very often.

Before the 2023 season started, Josh Jacobs held out for a new contract. This holdout seemed like it may have extended into the regular season until they agreed on a one-year, $12 million deal. This came as a surprise to many that the Raiders were neglecting to pay him, given the fact he led the league in rushing in 2022.
Jacobs hasn’t been very productive yet this season, but it’s only a matter of time until he breaks out. There’s no better time than against the 29th-ranked run defense in the league.
The Packers are giving up 155 rushing yards per game, and they’ve been consistently bad against anyone who decides to carry the ball between the tackles. We understand fully that Jacobs has not been a reliable option this season, but this game could turn his entire season around.
Jacobs’ is only averaging 41.5 rush yards per game, but one of them was an atrocious game where he accumulated a whopping -2 yards. Without that game has averaged 55 yards per game.
Why not play a longshot touchdown scorer on Monday Night Football? The Raiders are tied for 28th in the league in passing touchdowns allowed. Jayden Reed has been getting increasingly involved in this Packers offense every week.
Reed has been targeted 25 times in the first four weeks and has two touchdowns already this season. He’s targeted often in Green Bay’s red zone offense and is emerging as one of Love’s favorite receivers.
Reed has been very productive when he does get the ball. He has averaged over 55 yards per game in the first four contents, so also look at his receiving yards prop.
