At the time of this write-up, there’s still uncertainty surrounding the starting quarterback for the Cardinals. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury called Kyler Murray a game-time decision.
Either way, the Cardinals should be able to cover this number in a divisional matchup.
The 49ers have a great defense, allowing less than 83 rushing and less than 200 passing yards per game.
They’ve done well against divisional opponents this year but have yet to face the Cardinals.
The Cardinals are seemingly quite dysfunctional, but they do have several playmakers. Including Murray, they have running back James Conner, who’s been serviceable this year, and wide receivers DeAndre Hopkins and Rondale Moore.
Hopkins is not someone that anyone on the 49ers can cover. Moore is a dynamic threat when utilized properly, both around the line of scrimmage, and can stretch the field some.
If McCoy draws the start, he’s someone who will keep the ball safe and be efficient. He completed over 70% of his passes in his start last week in Murray’s absence and didn’t have a single turnover-worthy play.
This number is too big against a division rival with some playmakers.
This season, Hopkins has had 13 or more targets in three of the four games he’s played since coming back from suspension.
He’s scored a touchdown in two of those.
While McCoy may not be who you’d necessarily want to trust to help get this leg completed, he targeted Hopkins 14 times against the Rams and caught 10 of those for 98 yards.
Hopkins will be ultra-targeted whether it’s Murray, McCoy, or anybody under center, and at +160, we’ll take that with confidence.
Any time you’re getting -145 odds, it’s not the best value, but for McCaffrey, you could argue these odds should be even better—perhaps -165 or better.
McCaffrey is used in many ways and generates touches unlike any other running back in the league.
In his last two games with the 49ers, McCaffrey has seen an average of 16 carries and seven targets per game, and he’s also scored at least once in both.
He’s a candidate to score each week and a no-brainer addition to this Same Game Parlay.
