With the New York Giants sporting a two-game winning streak, this Green Bay Packers matchup has some more interesting bets than it might have otherwise. Instead of being an automatic under pick, Tommy DeVito’s status is more uncertain after some surprisingly respectable performances (and even one excellent showing). On the other sideline, Jordan Love is on a tear, throwing eight touchdown passes against no interceptions over his past three games.

Here are your Giants-Packers best prop bets for Week 14.

Love: Over 223.5 passing yards (-115)

Even before Love’s recent breakout, he was reliable to go over 223.5 passing yards. He’s done so in nine of his 12 games this season. The Giants allow 228.3 passing yards per game.

Saquon Barkley: Over 70.5 rushing yards (-115)

Barkley surprisingly had just 12 rush attempts against New England, averaging just 3.8 yards per carry. Still, the Packers allow 4.5 yards per rush attempt, ranking 26th in the NFL. They’ve also allowed the seventh-most rushes of 15+ yards to running backs with 14. Barkley has 10 rushes of 15+ yards in nine games this season. Even with the Giants’ poor run-blocking, I think Barkley will break a couple of big runs that will allow him to exceed 70.5 yards.

Green Bay Packers: To score between 21-30 points (+160)

This is the points band the Packers have been in over their past three games.

Romeo Doubs anytime TD + GB Packers to win (+240)

I picked the Giants to win in the Big Blue View picks, but that was mainly to be contrarian. If you’re placing a bet, it should be on Green Bay. It’s worth spicing up the Doubs TD (+185) with a Packers win. Doubs has seven receiving touchdowns this season, and if Christian Watson doesn’t play due to his hamstring injury, Doubs has a very good chance to score.

Longest TD yards: Under 35.5 (-110)

The Packers have one touchdown longer than 35.5 yards this season, and it came on defense. The Giants have three — one offensive and two defensive. Jalin Hyatt’s long receptions have not gone for touchdowns. I’m going with the under here.

Same-game parlay: Love over 223.5 passing yards + Hyatt over 29.5 receiving yards + Darius Slayton over 25.5 receiving yards + Barkley over 18.5 receiving yards + Jayden Reed over 38.5 receiving yards (+1700)

I know this is a long-shot parlay, but I think there’s a reasonable chance this will happen. The Packers rank 13th with 16 passes of 20+ air yards allowed, but DeVito seems to like putting it up to Hyatt. Slayton has gone over 25.5 yards in half of his games this season, but following the theme of deep passing, I think he’ll catch one deep route to propel him over the top (no pun intended). The Packers allow over 18.5 receiving yards per game to running backs. Reed has gone over 38.5 yards in half of his games and has a good chance to do so again if Watson is out.
