The San Francisco 49ers will try to complete the two-game season series sweep over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. These two teams just played each on Thanksgiving night, where the 49ers won 31-13.

San Francisco is coming off another impressive win over the Philadelphia Eagles last week and is looked at as the favorite to win the Super Bowl. For Sunday's rematch against Seattle, I found two Niners' props that bettors should look to jump on immediately.

Best anytime touchdown scorer picks for Seahawks vs. 49ers

  • Brandon Aiyuk (+115)
  • George Kittle (+145)
  • Jaxon Smith-Njigba (+230)

Brandon Aiyuk anytime touchdown scorer (+115)

Aiyuk has scored a touchdown in four straight games, including in Week 12 against the Seattle Seahawks. He only managed to have two receptions (four targets) for 50 yards. The former first-round pick is coming off a solid game against the Eagles, where he had five receptions (seven targets) for 46 yards and a touchdown.

Last week, the Seahawks’ defense struggled against the Cowboys’ receivers, and I don’t see that changing against the 49ers’ high-powered offense. The Seahawks have allowed 13 touchdowns to opposing wide receivers this season. The good thing about Aiyuk is he doesn’t need a lot of targets to be productive, as we’ve seen him make numerous big scoring plays this season.

George Kittle anytime touchdown scorer (+145)

I’ll take a shot on Kittle, who has seen four red zone receiving targets in the last three games. In the 49ers’ Week 12 win over the Seahawks, he had three receptions (five targets) for 19 yards.

It wasn’t an impressive performance by the star tight end, but we know he can have a breakout game at any moment. The Seahawks have done an excellent job of keeping tight ends out of the end zone this season (2 TDs allowed), which is a credit to LBs Jordyn Brooks and Bobby Wagner. 

However, with the way this San Francisco offense is humming, he might be able to exploit some matchups on Sunday. Last week, we saw Cowboys TE Jake Ferguson have six receptions for 77 yards and a touchdown against this Seahawks defense. 

Jaxon Smith-Njigba anytime touchdown scorer (+230)

The rookie wide receiver is coming off one of his better games last week against the Cowboys. Smith-Njigba recorded seven receptions (11) for 62 yards. It was a drastic improvement from the prior week against the 49ers, who held him to two receptions (three targets) for 41 yards.

The former Ohio State wide receiver has received two red zone targets in the last two games, which is a good sign for the Seahawks passing game. With D.K. Metcalf coming off a ridiculous three-touchdown performance, you have to believe that the 49ers will keep a close eye on him. Therefore, JSN will have to take advantage of any opportunity that may come his way. 

Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
