Devonta Smith Over/Under 65.5 Yards
Smith has taken on a bit of an odd role in the Eagles offense, both as their highest volume receiver in terms of receptions but also a long ball specialist. Smith didn’t go over this number last week, mostly because the Eagles didn’t feel the need to stretch the field through the air after the first drive. With Smith able to both get volume and big plays, he could be essential to Philadelphia winning this game.
Devonta Smith Over/Under 5.5 Receptions
Smith averaged 5.6 receptions/game this year in setting the Eagles franchise record for receptions. With AJ Brown likely to get the majority of the defensive attention, Smith is likely going to have a slightly easier time. With the Niners being so strong against the run, it’s likely Philadelphia will be looking to go through the air to score this week, meaning Smith will likely be peppered with targets.
Devona Smith Anytime Touchdown
With the Niners stout run defense, there is less concern about Miles Sanders or the rest of the running back committee scoring touchdowns in this game. Assuming the Eagles score 3 or more, in line with their usual offensive outputs and their implied team total of 23.5, there’s likely going to be lots of opportunities for Smith.
Between Hurts taking one in himself potentially and then Brown, Goedert, and Smith, there is a lot of reason to believe Smith can haul one in, as he did 7 times this season, including last week against the Giants.
