We are just days away from Championship Sunday, which will be capped off with the NFC title game between the San Francisco 49ers and Detroit Lions.

There are plenty of ways to bet on this game, but one of the most popular is player prop bets and there's one in particular that is in almost "must-bet" territory. So much so that I had to write a completely separate article to tell you about it.

This week, we should all be targeting Brandon Aiyuk to have a huge performance against the Lions.

Brandon Aiyuk Prop Bet

Aiyuk's receiving yards total for this week is set at 79.5 yards, which means if you bet the OVER, all he needs to do is record 80 or more receiving yards and this bet would be a winner. The great news is, receivers have been torching the Lions over the last few weeks.

This isn't just a recent phenomenon either. The Lions secondary has been one of the worst in the NFL all season. They've allowed an average of 7.3 yards per pass attempt on the year. Only the Commanders and Bengals ranked worse in that stat. They also allowed a total of 256.9 passing yards per game, the second worst mark in the NFL.

Aiyuk has been quiet in his last two starts, but he averaged 83.9 receiving yards per game this season, so all he has to do is hit his season average for this prop bet to hit.
