49ers prop bets: George Kittle Christian McCaffrey big day

The 49ers and Packers face off in the NFC playoffs. Prop bets and weather factors make for an exciting game.

The upcoming showdown between the 49ers and Packers is set to determine who will advance to the NFC Championship game, and the NFL playoffs present a prime opportunity for bettors to cash in on some winning tickets.

DraftKings Sportsbook offers a variety of prop bets for Saturday's divisional game, and there are several options worth targeting. The Packers' defense allowed an average of 128 rushing yards per game during the regular season, and that number increased to 141.4 yards per game on the road. With a 20 percent chance of rain at Levi's Stadium, the conditions may lead to more rushing attempts. As a result, we're taking the over on Christian McCaffrey's 92.5 rushing yard prop at -130.

In addition to the rushing yards prop, McCaffrey's anytime touchdown prop at -340 is a strong play, but we're also taking a shot on him as the first touchdown scorer at +310. Anticipating the 49ers to start the game with a scoring drive, this bet holds significant value.

Furthermore, tight end George Kittle ran nearly 30 percent of his routes from the slot in 2023, and head coach Kyle Shanahan is likely to exploit mismatches with the Packers' linebackers. With this in mind, we're backing Kittle to surpass 53.5 receiving yards at -115. The primetime night game setting only adds to the appeal of this bet.

Considering the potential impact of weather on passing yard totals, we're steering clear of those bets. However, we feel confident in taking Brock Purdy's alternate passing yards total of 232.5 at -265.

For those looking to take a more ambitious approach, a same game parlay featuring McCaffrey's over on 92.5 rushing yards, McCaffrey as the first TD scorer, Kittle over 53.5 receiving yards, Purdy over 232.5 passing yards, and a 49ers win presents an enticing opportunity. With odds sitting at +1500, a $50 wager could yield an $800 return. While it's a longshot, the potential payoff makes it a worthwhile play. Let's roll the dice and see how it plays out!
