RB Christian McCaffrey Over Receiving Yards

The NFL’s rushing leader also happens to be one of the most dangerous pass-catchers as well. Whenever the ground game has failed McCaffrey, he’s more than made up for it in the passing game. In five of the eight games in which he’s failed to record 100 yards on the ground, CMC has posted at least 34 receiving yards while averaging nearly four receptions.

Baltimore enters the week with the 10th-best rushing defense DVOA. Its defensive front seven will offer more resistance than the cupcake rushing defenses McCaffrey has faced the last five games. The Ravens have allowed Joe Mixon, Jaylen Warren, Tyjae Spears, and Jahmyr Gibbs to surpass this number. Much like McCaffrey, they all line up in the slot at an above-average rate for running backs.

Even if the 49ers succeed with their rushing attack, McCaffrey is still live to go over 30 yards receiving. Even with an average of 99 rushing yards over his last seven games, he’s still pulling in more than four catches per contest.

WR Odell Beckham Jr. Over

49ers’ cornerback Charvarius Ward is having a career year for San Francisco. Luckily for Odell, he will likely draw cornerback Ambry Thomas while Ward deals with shifty rookie wideout Zay Flowers. Opposing QBs have wisely avoided testing Ward, instead throwing to Thomas’s side of the field more consistently. Thomas ranks 30th in targets allowed and has given up more than 10 yards per catch, 22nd worst among qualifying CBs.

Beckham’s receptions prop line is sitting at . Four receptions should get him over his yards prop, although his big-play ability could help him get there in fewer than that.

Odell disappointed in a primetime spot against a weak Jaguars’ secondary last week. However, that game ended after the Jags failed to score a point from four separate red zone trips. At best, the Ravens are likely looking at a neutral game script in a tough road game. If the 49ers can score early, something they’ve done consistently throughout the season, Beckham will be in line for more targets than the three he saw in Week 15.

Gus Edwards Over

At first glance, this bet may appear terrifying to those familiar with the 49ers’ stout rushing defense. The 49ers have limited opponents to the third-fewest ground yards on the season. They’re also, however, allowing 4.3 yards per carry, good for the bottom 10 in the league. It’s fair to argue that if they weren’t winning by such a consistently large margin, their defense would give up more rushing yards.

Thanks to its number-one-ranked offense, San Francisco doesn’t have to worry about its defense’s yards-per-carry stats. Baltimore boasts a top-ten defense in its own right and should be able to contain SF’s high-powered attack with more success than its recent opponents.

In the seven games from Week 5 to Week 11, Edwards saw an average of 13 carries per game. In Weeks 12 and 14, Keaton Mitchell claimed the RB1 role and most of Edwards’s carries with it. After Mitchell exited last week’s Sunday Night Football game with a season-ending knee injury, the Gus Bus was back into the starter’s spot with 16 carries.
