49ers vs. Buccaneers: 4 prop bets that turn heads in Week 14

49ers vs. Bucs prop bet No. 4: Niners or Buccaneers first to score
Alright, which team gets on the board first?
Both offenses are going to have their challenges against elite defenses, the Buccaneers have been bad for much of the year, while San Francisco is hoping Brock Purdy somehow does enough to allow his supporting cast to carry the load.
As far as betting on which team scores first, though, perhaps it’ll come down to which team has been more effective in the first half of games this season.
Want your voice heard? Join the Niner Noise team!
DraftKings has the 49ers as favorites to score first here at -140, whereas the Bucs are +110. And it might be smart to go with the favorites, especially considering Tampa Bay ranks 29th in first-half points this season with 8.1.
In contrast, the Niners rank 10th with an average of 13 points over the first two frames.
True, most of those numbers didn’t involve a Purdy-led offense. But let’s follow the trend when San Francisco kicks off against Tampa Bay on Sunday, Dec. 11 at 4:25 p.m. ET.
