NFL Player Prop Bets: Packers at 49ers
Packers Niners Prop Bet & Same Game Parlay Strategy
The high total of in this game, combined with the Packers flirting with double-digit underdogs, creates an interesting dilemma. That, and the fact that Green Bay was just sizable underdogs and won comfortably, enables multiple ways of looking at this game. When betting props, correlating them gives you the best chance of winning SGPs.
In this case, with the uncertainty about whether the Packers can get enough stops to slow down San Francisco, we will be betting on an offensive explosion. Jordan Love looked like he had done this before, and Green Bay should be able to move the ball against a Niners defense that was only 10th by EPA in the regular season.
The Niners should be able to do the same against Green Bay’s 23rd-ranked EPA defense. That’s why this game may lend itself to a lot of touchdowns and a lot of overs for NFL player prop bets.
Potential Packers vs. 49ers Prop Bets
George Kittle Over Receiving Yards
Tight ends have been one of the Packers’ weaknesses this season. Jake Ferguson lit the Packers up for 93 yards last week on 10 catches, even as the Cowboys offense sputtered. Against Minnesota in Week 17, in a game where Minnesota’s QBs combined to throw for less than 200 yards, backup TE Johnny Mundt posted 39 yards and a score. The Packers have been brutal to the position this year. Against George Kittle, that weakness is going to be even more scrutinized.
Ignoring the Week 17 game vs. Washington, where the 49ers got out to an early lead and then pulled back offensively, Kittle’s gone over this number four straight weeks and eight of the last nine. Kittle has cemented himself as a big play threat in the Shanahan offense.
He’s now entering a game where he’s playing a team that is terrible against the position. A lesser tight end scored 93 yards and three TDs on Green Bay. If Kittle doesn’t torch the Packers, I’ll be shocked.
Jordan Love Over Rushing Yards
Love’s talents as a passer were on full display last week, but part of his ability to air it out against the Cowboys came from his legs. The Packers could get open against the Dallas secondary, meaning Love only had to buy time before hitting wide-open receivers. That said, the Niners pass rush will also be coming at him this week.
Love will have to run if the Niners’ secondary holds up even slightly better than Dallas.
The Packers love opening up the middle of the field by stretching the defense vertically. One of the other virtues of doing that? It opens up the middle to QB runs. Love isn’t a run-heavy QB, but he’s also not averse to running the ball. He doesn’t have to a lot, because usually there’s an open guy throw to. If the Niners get him on the move before their coverage collapses, a Love scramble is in the cards.
Given the low number, one might be enough.
Romeo Doubs Over Receiving Yards
When Love is throwing the ball, Doubs may have another big week. With six receptions for 151 yards less than a week after being in hospital, Doubs showed up against Dallas when needed. The Packers have come to rely on Doubs a lot, especially when Christian Watson was out. Yes, Watson should be more than a decoy this week, but Doubs’ number doesn’t reflect the reality that he went off last week.
Yes, regression is likely, but a number south of 40 yards when he just went for 151 yards is ludicrous. As sizable underdogs, the Packers will have to air it out, meaning they won’t be able to control the game on the ground. Doubs’ failures to go over this number have almost exclusively come in situations where the Packers get a lead and don’t have to be aggressive all game. Unless they do spectacularly well in this game, that won’t be the case against the Niners. And if it is? Then Doubs almost assuredly got to this number by halftime.
Same Game Parlay Legs To Consider
Packers Team Total Over 20.5
This could be the Packers homer in me, but this offense will not put up less than 21 points. They have steamrolled most of their opposition the last six weeks of the season to make the playoffs. They’ve gone over this number in every game since Thanksgiving except two (and in one of them, they scored 20). The Pack just put up 20 offensive points in the first half against a defense ranked higher by EPA than the Niners. And they know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they can’t win this game kicking field goals.
I don’t have faith that my team can win. I don’t have faith they can cover. But I do have faith they can score 21 points.
