Do the Green Bay Packers have another upset in them? The No. 7 Packers were the only road team to win during Wild Card Weekend, dismantling the No. 2 Dallas Cowboys at Jerry World, 48-32. Green Bay now goes up against the No. 1 seed 49ers on the west coast, hoping to erase a long history of playoff shortcomings against San Francisco. 

The 49ers bounced back in a big way from a three-game midseason losing streak. San Francisco won six straight and seven of eight to lock up the NFC’s top seed prior to the regular-season finale. Will the 49ers continue to roll under Mr. Irrelevant Brock Purdy? 

Here are three prop bets to target when San Francisco hosts Green Bay on Saturday.

Packers vs. 49ers best prop bets for divisional rounds

  • George Kittle OVER 52.5 receiving yards
  • Jordan Love OVER 35.5 passing attempts
  • Dontayvion Wicks UNDER 35.5 receiving yards 

George Kittle OVER 52.5 receiving yards

Green Bay has struggled against opposing tight ends this season, giving up 53.7 receiving yards per game and Kittle is one of the NFL’s best at the position. That trend continued in the first round of the playoffs as Cowboys’ tight end Jake Ferguson racked up 10 catches for 93 yards and three touchdowns. 

Kittle had a slow start to the season, but turned in on down the stretch, eclipsing this number in eight of his final 10 games. He’s been dominant at home, too, averaging 5.4 catches for 86.6 yards per game at Levi’s Stadium. 

Kittle averaged 66 receiving yards in two home playoff games with a healthy Purdy last season. Look for that to continue this weekend.

Jordan Love OVER 35.5 passing attempts

Love has dispelled any doubts that he’s the quarterback of the future in Green Bay, ranking seventh in the NFL in passing yards (4,159) and second in touchdown passes (32) to lead the Packers to a playoff berth. 

There should be a positive game script for the Packers to air it out late as 9.5-point underdogs. Opposing quarterbacks attempted an average of 36.5 passes per game against the 49ers this season. 

Love only threw it 21 times against the Cowboys because the Green Bay rushing attack, led by Aaron Jones, churned out 143 yards to control the tempo. That shouldn’t be the case on Saturday with San Francisco’s No. 3 defense against the run. 

Dontayvion Wicks UNDER 35.5 receiving yards

Wicks is part of a young Packers’ skilled position group who was one of three 500-yard receivers this season for Love. 

This number is lined right around Wicks’ average (38.7 yards per game) this season, but the return of speedster Christian Watson cut into the fifth-round pick’s playing time. 

Wicks played over 60% of snaps in three of his final four games, but that number was trimmed to 55% in the first round against Dallas. Wicks only saw two targets, turning in two receptions for 25 yards and a touchdown. With plenty of options in the passing attack, Wicks could be the odd man out on Saturday.
