NFC Championship: San Francisco 49ers vs. Los Angeles Rams Player Props (1/30/22)
The NFC Championship will feature the third game this season between two heated divisional rivals in the 49ers and Rams. Both teams have high-level offensive talent who have provided excellent betting value all season. Cooper Kupp and Deebo Samuel have been two of the most productive offensive players this season. You can use the player prop search tool below to find the best odds in your market. Let’s look at some of my favorite angles from this game.
San Francisco 49ers Vs. Los Angeles Rams Player Prop Search Tool
Deebo Samuel Anytime TD Scorer
So long as Deebo Samuel is playing and is sitting at around even odds to score a touchdown, I’ll be betting it every time. Last week, he failed to reach the end zone in a surprisingly low-scoring game, but he had scored in three straight games leading into that matchup against the Packers. Deebo has scored three touchdowns in two games against the Rams this year, and during an eight-week stretch to close the season, he scored nine total touchdowns. Samuel can reach the end zone on the ground or through the air, and assuming his injury doesn’t limit him considerably, I’ll be betting on him to score again.
Cooper Kupp Over 101.5 Receiving Yards
After winning the triple crown in the regular season, Kupp has wowed in the postseason with 244 receiving yards through two playoff games. Kupp easily cleared 100 yards in each of his games against the 49ers during the regular season, and the Niners’ banged-up secondary will have a tough time keeping Kupp in check as he makes plays all over the field. There isn’t a ton of sharp analysis here – just bet Kupp’s receiving yards as he’s hit this line in 12 of 19 games this season. This line is still too low, and I’ll be taking advantage.
George Kittle Under 52.5 Receiving Yards
It’s not super fun betting the under on such an elite talent as Kittle, but there’s strong statistical evidence that he will have a less impactful receiving game this week. The 49ers have utilized him more as an in-line blocker lately, and that role will be even more important this week against Aaron Donald, Von Miller, and Leonard Floyd. Kittle has averaged just 28.2 receiving yards over his last five games, including ten yards against the Rams in Week 18, despite having five receptions in that game. The Rams aren’t necessarily an elite tight-end coverage defense, and Kittle could hit this line easily if he’s given the target share, but this is a bet on the role he should have in this game. Last week, I bet on Gronk under 5.5 receptions as I expected him to pick up that blocking role, and we’ll go back to the same formula here.
Matt Gay Over 6.5 Kicking Points
I don’t typically go to kicking props in these articles, but this line is juiced for a reason. I have the Rams winning this game, and they will do it with Matt Gay being very involved in the scoring production. Gay has had 10+ kicking points in both of the teams’ playoff games, and he averaged 8.5 kicking points per game during the regular season. He was held to just five kicking points per game in the two matchups against the 49ers, but the Rams’ offense is thriving right now and should be highly productive again this season. The added boost of a likely red-zone stop or two should give Gay the opportunity to hit a couple of field goals in this game, and I like the Rams to do enough scoring regardless to push him over this line.
