As we head to this Week 8 showdown between the San Francisco 49ers and Cincinnati Bengals, the 49ers face adversity, losing two straight games and potentially without quarterback Brock Purdy.
With that in mind, we have the best three prop bets you can make now ahead of this inter-conference showdown.
With a line of 7.5 here, it’s certainly a tall hill for Chase to climb, especially when you consider he’s had eight or more catches in just two games this season but had seven in Week 4 and six in Week 6.
He’s had double-digit targets in three of his last four games, and he’ll face a cornerback duo in Deommodore Lenoir and Charvarius Ward that have allowed a combined 16 catches on 28 targets.
In a game against a 49ers team that’s been struggling lately against a receiver with a massive target share, we’ll take the risk on the over.
It was a rocky start to the year, but Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow looks to have turned things around. He has multiple touchdown passes in his past two games and went over 300 yards in Week 5.
Against the 49ers, he’ll face a defense that allows just one per game. Still, they allowed two last week: the Minnesota Vikings and quarterback Kirk Cousins.
The 49ers have an excellent defense overall, but they’re losing games recently; they could have Sam Darnold in the game, resulting in the defense having more time on the field, equating to fatigue, while facing an offense that has a plethora of weapons and a red-hot quarterback.
At +120, slam this wager.
Still, under -200, we’ll take a McCaffrey any-time touchdown prop. The last time McCaffrey played in an NFL game and didn’t score a touchdown during the regular season was Week 12 of last season. If a hobbled Purdy suits up or Darnold takes over, McCaffrey will continue getting plenty of work. He’s almost a sure bet for a weekly touchdown, especially with these favorable odds.
The Bengals allow 1.3 passing touchdowns and 0.8 rushing touchdowns per game.
