49ers Super Bowl Prop Bets: 3 San Francisco Wagers for the Big Game

The San Francisco 49ers entered the playoffs in an enviable position, holding on to the No. 1 seed in the NFC and earning a first-round bye.

That would be the last time that things would come easy for the Niners.

After surviving a scare in the Divisional round by Green Bay, the 49ers looked lost in the first half of the NFC Championship against Detroit last Sunday.

But after a key fourth-down stop, the 49ers charged back and won the game 34-31. Brock Purdy, despite some shaky parts of the games against both Green Bay and Detroit, is now 4-0 in playoff games that he hasn’t been injured in.

Despite the rocky playoff run, the 49ers are two-point favorites in the Super Bowl over the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs. San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan is looking to avenge a loss to the Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV four years ago. A win would tie the 49ers with Pittsburgh and New England for the most all-time Super Bowl titles with six.

We have already given our best bets and prop bets for the Chiefs. Here are three 49ers Super Bowl prop bets for you to consider on Super Sunday.

49ERS SUPER BOWL PROP BETS: Run Brock, Run!

Brock Purdy would prefer not to run. He has only run for over 20 yards twice this year. Interestingly, both came when the team was playing from behind and he was doing whatever it took to win. Purdy ran for 57 yards on six attempts in a 31-17 loss to Cincinnati in October. Then on Sunday, he ran five times for 48 yards, including two drive-extending runs in crunch time.

The 49ers have had two slow starts this postseason. There’s a good chance they will either be playing from behind or Purdy will have a sense of urgency at some point. He’s shown that if a play breaks down, he’s not afraid to take matters into his own hands. What he did here against the Lions would be enough to win this prop on its own. Will Purdy have to scramble one time for a decent-sized gain? It’s -120 odds if you think he will.

The Play: Brock Purdy OVER 12.5 rushing yards (-120 at DraftKings)

McCaffrey for MVP

When it comes to Super Bowl MVP, the best thing you can do is try and imagine what the most likely scenario has to occur for a team to win the game. Yes, a quarterback is typically the Super Bowl MVP. But in the case of Super Bowl LVI two years ago, Cooper Kupp was so dominant that he won the award at odds of around +650.

Right now at Caesars Sportsbook, Patrick Mahomes (+135) and Purdy (+200) are predictably the favorites. But Christian McCaffrey is next at +475. McCaffrey had over 100 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns in each 49ers playoff game so far. If an MVP were given for those games, the running back surely would’ve won in the Packers game. It’s more likely that Purdy would’ve taken the honors in the NFC title game.

But aside from a surprise performance by two-way star Deebo Samuel or a game-changer on defense, Purdy and McCaffrey are the likeliest candidates to win the award if the Niners win the game. Considering the 49ers are at minus odds to win the game, if you feel McCaffrey has a 50-50 chance of winning MVP, that would be parlay odds of around +225. And McCaffrey for MVP is +475? There’s some value for you.

The Play: Christian McCaffrey to win Super Bowl MVP (+475 at Caesars)

Fullback Kyle Juszczyk to Make a Catch

The bar is not high for Kyle Juszczyk, who is one of the better fullbacks in the league year in and year out. The perennial Pro Bowler is also one of the veterans on this 49ers team. He played in Super Bowl LIV and had three catches for 39 yards — one going for a touchdown, to boot!

This year, oddsmakers have set the bar considerably lower. The odds aren’t in your favor, but a win is a win. Juszczyk just needs one catch to make you a winner on this 49ers Super Bowl prop bet. Juszczyk didn’t log a catch in just three of the 11 games he played this season. He had two grabs in the Lions game last week. Sixty minutes is a long time to play football. The ball will end up in his hands probably once!

The Play: Kyle Juszczyk OVER 0.5 receptions (-166 at FanDuel)
