seahawks vs. 49ers props

With NFL sides and totals, if you are betting Sunday, you’ve likely lost any chance of getting an edge on the closing line. Player props may offer an alternative and have, generally, been much more beatable near kickoff compared to sides and totals. The NFL matchups within the matchup offer opportunity. With the NFL player prop market gaining more and more popularity, let’s dive into five potential Seahawks vs 49ers props from NFL Wild Card odds Saturday.

Potential 49ers vs. Seahawks Player Props To Target

Each of these props are ones I’ve personally bet earlier this week. Some lines may have shifted slightly, but the best available odds are provided, showing the best price across sportsbooks in your state.

George Kittle Over 41.5 receiving yards

Best available odds: Over/Under /

Kittle and Brock Purdy have found elite chemistry since Purdy started quarterbacking. In the last six games with Purdy under center, Kittle is averaging 52.5 receiving yards and 1.3 TDs per contest.

Now factor in the playoffs and the tendency for inexperienced quarterbacks to look for their tight ends. Kittle’s ceiling in this spot is enormous.

Seattle’s defense has been extremely generous to tight ends in 2022. The Seahawks have surrendered the second-most receiving yards to opposing tight ends this year. To top it all off, Kittle has torn up Seattle’s defense in recent games. He has averaged 137 yards receiving and 2.0 TDs in his last two games played vs. the Seahawks. I will be adding this Over to my betting card for Saturday.

Geno Smith Over 17.5 rushing yards

Best available odds: Over/Under /

This line is just too low. Smith has impressed us with his dual threat style of play this year. He has gone Over this number in 10 of his last 14 games played. We can expect San Fransisco to get pressure on Geno in this spot. With Geno under constant duress, it should force Smith to use his legs.

Christian McCaffrey Under 40.5 receiving yards

Best available odds: Over/Under /

We should expect the public to hammer the Over here. I am here to caution you. Although playing fantastic, McCaffrey has only hit the Over on this number once in his last five games. In the one game he hit the Over, it was in a highly contested back and forth contest. With San Francisco listed as a double-digit favorite, we should see decreased opportunity.

Elijah Mitchell has been heavily involved for the 49ers when healthy. Mitchell actually out-carried Christian McCaffrey in two of the three games they played together earlier this year. McCaffrey is the unquestioned lead back for San Francisco and has started 10 straight games for them. However, the 49ers have made a concerted effort to get both backs involved when Mitchell is available.

Kenneth Walker Over/under 9.5 receiving yards

Best available odds: /

Sometimes there is a reason a prop line is so low, but sometimes it’s just a wrong read by whoever posted the line. Walker will be on the field for at least 75% of this snaps in this game. With the expected script being Seattle to trail, we may only need one checkdown from Geno to get Walker the Over here. One of the edges I have found in NFL player props is RB receiving yards being too low. Since taking over as the starter for Seattle, Walker is averaging more than 15 receiving yards per game (10 games).

Elijah Mitchell Anytime TD scorer +270

Best available odds:

Here is a-little bonus for you. Elijah Mitchell to score an anytime touchdown at close to 3-1 odds! The Louisiana product is likely to have minimal usage as a receiver, but it matters that he is getting goal line work. With Mitchell healthy, the 49ers gave him the rock inside scoring position as he had two short TDs in Week 18, along with five carries inside the 10-yard line in Weeks 10-12 when both McCaffrey and him were healthy. The 49ers are double-digit favorites in this spot, and one can expect multiple 49er touchdowns this week.

NFL Player Props Strategies

To optimize your chances of long-term profitability, you must seek out the best available odds across sportsbooks for props. We have a way that makes it simple – our Prop Finder Tool. Search the player name and compare odds across sportsbooks in your state.

There’s an edge in betting the Unders on weekly player props close to kickoff. The edge is so great that you would have posted a positive ROI last year if you bet every single Under with no other information. At the same time, that doesn’t mean you should never bet Overs. You must be selective with picking your spots based on new information, and it’s always best to handicap each situation independently.

For some, betting the Under may be challenging to watch a game. No one wants to cheer for a player to fail, but the increased ROI you get from focusing on Unders should outweigh that for those wanting to be profitable long term.

Best of luck betting on Seahawks vs. 49ers props!
