49ers vs. Eagles best same game parlay picks for NFC Championship Game
By Josh Yourish
Brock Purdy and Jalen Hurts have been excellent all season and while they’re not the elite passers like in the AFC finale, they lead two of the top offenses in football.
Whoever wins I’m expecting a lot of points in this one, so let’s back Purdy, but more importantly, Purdy’s playmakers for this same game parlay. First, let’s take a look at the odds as the Eagles are slight favorites at home.
It feels like Vegas is begging everyone to take the Eagles by leaving the line at 2.5 instead of moving it to a full 3. It’s a rat line and I’m not taking the bait, instead we can buy another couple of points with the Niners and really juice our odds with a couple of props.
I constructed this four-leg SGP in the FanDuel Sportsbook and it pays out +441, that means a $25 bet pays out $110.39.
Best same game parlay picks for 49ers vs. Eagles
- 49ers +7.5 vs. Eagles (-265)
- Over 43.5 (-172)
- George Kittle 40+ receiving yards (-166)
- Christian McCaffrey over 59.5 (-114)
49ers +7.5 vs. Eagles (-265)
The 49ers haven’t lost with Brock Purdy at quarterback, so you may not need the 7.5 points, but I’m thrilled to have them.
The Cowboys were the best defense that Purdy has faced and he had his worst game. I’m not sure that’s a sign of things to come this week, but the Eagles are even better than Dallas. As long as Purdy doesn’t turn the ball over, San Francisco is talented enough to be within a touchdown, or even win.
Over 43.5 (-172)
Earlier in the week, I grabbed over 45.5 and that’s my primary play in this game. I’ve grabbed a few extra points of cushion for this SGP, so I love this over even more. If there is a weakness on the Eagles roster, it’s their lack of run stuffers, both on the defensive line and at inside linebacker.
The 49ers will take advantage of that weakness and can run it down their throat, but the Eagles talented receivers will be able to match San Fran’s offensive output.
George Kittle 40+ receiving yards (-166)
Kittle has looked great lately, the healthiest and scariest he’s been in the receiving game in a while. Last week he led San Fran in receiving with five catches for 95 yards.
He’s becoming Purdy’s safety valve and we saw it when he rolled out and connected with Kittle for a long gain on a crucial second half drive.
Christian McCaffrey over 59.5 (-114)
The Eagles have a near perfect roster. Yet, they had to bring in Linval Joseph in Ndamukong Suh in the middle of the year, because their biggest weakness was getting exposed. The Eagles struggle to stuff the run and Kyle Shanahan brought in Christian McCaffrey to win this exact game.
