NFL Wild Card Weekend will kick-off with an NFC West battle between the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers.
The 49ers will be looking to complete the 3-0 sweep against the Seahawks, and sportsbooks have them set as sizable favorites.
But what about player props? You’re not just going to bet on a side or total, are you?
That’s where I come in. I’m here to give you my three favorite player props for this NFC Wild Card showdown.
Let’s dive into them.
Best NFL prop bets for Seahawks vs. 49ers
- Christian McCaffrey OVER 113.5 rushing + receiving yards
- Kenneth Walker UNDER 59.5 rushing yards
- George Kittle OVER 41.5 receiving yards
Christian McCaffrey OVER 113.5 rushing + receiving yards
The 49ers would be smart to rely on their best player, Christian McCaffrey, in the first round of the playoffs. This will be Brock Purdy’s first ever postseason start, so I expect Kyle Shanahan to lean on CMC in both the running game and passing game.
He has at least six catches in two of his last three games, and he has eclipsed 100 yards on the ground in three of his last five. I don’t think it’s a big ask at all for him to combine for more than 113 on Saturday.
Kenneth Walker UNDER 59.5 rushing yards
Kenneth Walker is going to have his hands full on Saturday against the 49ers defense. San Francisco ranks second in the NFL in opponent yards per carry, keeping opposing teams to averaging only 3.4 yards per rush.
Walker got only 47 yards on the ground in the Seahawks last game against the 49ers, so a repeat performance would result in us cashing our bet.
George Kittle OVER 41.5 receiving yards
George Kittle has exploded in recent weeks. He has scored seven touchdowns in his last four games, and he has surpassed 90 yards in two of his last four starts. He has become an integral part of their offense, and we only need 42 yards from him to cash this prop bet on Saturday.
