Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin, who is listed as questionable with a knee injury, is reportedly expected to play against the Green Bay Packers in Week 15. 

This is great news for Tampa Bay, as the team needs a win to hang on to the No. 1 spot in the NFC South division. Tampa Bay took the lead in the division after upsetting the Atlanta Falcons in Week 14. 

With Godwin expected to play, Baker Mayfield should have his full complement of weapons available against the Pack.

Best Chris Godwin prop bet for Week 15 vs. Packers

Chris Godwin OVER 42.5 receiving yards

Godwin hasn’t had a monster season as a receiver, but he’s cleared 42.5 receiving yards in nine games this season. The star wideout had a few down games against Carolina and San Francisco, but he bounced back with five catches for 53 yards last week. 

The Bucs should rely on their passing game a lot in this one – as Green Bay is allowing nearly six net yards per pass attempt on the season. 

I like the OVER for Godwin at a low 40s prop.
