The Green Bay Packers wouldn't be preparing for their upcoming NFL Divisional Round matchup against the San Francisco 49ers if it wasn't for Jordan Love's play.

Now the Jordan Love bets.
1. Jordan Love Over 1.5 Touchdown Passes
Love made an immediate impact in his first campaign as a starting QB, throwing for 32 touchdown passes through 17 starts. The only quarterback with more TD passes this season was Dak Prescott with 36, showing just how impressive the ex-Utah State product's performance was.
When it comes to this specific prop, Love came through more often than not during the regular season, finishing 11-of-17 starts (64.7%) with at least TD passes before throwing for three against the Cowboys last weekend.
Yes, the 49ers have one of the best defenses in the league, but they did allow multiple TD passes from three of the last five QBs they faced. In fact, the 1.6 passing TDs per game that San Francisco allows at home is the fifth-most in the NFL.
With most oddsmakers projecting the Packers to be two-possession underdogs on Saturday, chances are that Love will have to throw the ball a lot to keep things close, improving his chances of coming through on this prop.
