NFC Championship Player Props

We’re just two games away from finding out who will represent each conference in the Super Bowl. Here, we’ll look at the best props for the NFC Championship game between the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers. 

Philadelphia Eagles vs. San Francisco 49ers

Pick: Jalen Hurts Under 1.5 Passing TDs (-130) at DraftKings

Coming off of a two-passing touchdown outing in the Divisional Round against the New York Giants, Hurts will have a much taller task this week against the 49ers. 

The 49ers are holding opposing quarterbacks to around 200 passing yards per game over the last three weeks. While they’re a bit beatable in the secondary, especially with cornerback Deommodore Lenoir, the 49ers pass rush along the defensive line. Their linebackers should be able to create enough penetration to keep Hurts on his toes and needing to move around and potentially scramble. 

Additionally, Hurts has seven games this year in which he passed for one or fewer touchdown passes, so it’s not unheard of for the mobile, rushing-threat quarterback.

He should often connect with wide receiver A.J. Brown as he’s set to oppose Lenoir, but expect Hurts to try to do all he can to get the run game going, even against this stout 49ers rush defense.

Pick: Miles Sanders Under 13.5 Rushing Attempts (+105) at DraftKings

When it comes to the run game, there’s no team better against it than the 49ers. 

This doesn’t bode well for Sanders, who already receives somewhat-limited touches. Over his last five games, Sanders has seen less than 13.5 rushing attempts three times. 

Opponents against the 49ers only rush for about 23 times per game, ranking second-least in the NFL. 

The Eagles have a rushing quarterback in Hurts who will naturally cut into this, but the 49ers stout run defense will do so. He should reach double-digits to set up the run game, but after some lofty attempts, the Eagles will need to resort to something else. 

Pick: Christian McCaffrey Under 57.5 Rushing Yards (-137) at Caesars

At -137, this isn’t the greatest value, especially when it involves taking the under on any McCaffrey statistical category. 

That said, McCaffrey is more of a total yardage player, as over his last five games, he’s only cleared 46 rushing yards just two times. 

The Eagles have allowed over 125 rushing yards over their last three games, but look for McCaffrey to be utilized more in the passing game as we look for Elijah Mitchell also to pick up some carries and eat away at McCaffrey’s rushing yard production.
