4 Best Prop Bets for 49ers vs Cardinals Week 9 Thursday Night Football Game
By Max Staley
The undefeated San Francisco 49ers are in Arizona to take on the 3-4-1 Cardinals in an NFC West matchup on "Thursday Night Football." The 49ers are 10.5-point road favorites tonight, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
If you're looking for an alternative way to wager on Thursday night's game, here are four of the best prop bets for the game between the 49ers and Cardinals.
1. Any Time Touchdown Scorer - Tevin Coleman (-190)
Tevin Coleman has been a touchdown machine since returning from an ankle sprain, scoring a TD in three of his last four games for a total of six during that span. The Cardinals, meanwhile, have given up 27.9 points per game (PPG) this season, which is the fourth-highest total in the NFL. Against a defense giving up plenty of scoring opportunities, Coleman has a chance to find the end zone again on Thursday night.
2. George Kittle - Receiving Yards: Over 69.5 (-126)
George Kittle has been a monster lately, averaging 74.3 receiving yards over his last four games. He also draws a matchup against a Cardinals' defense that has surrendered 702 receiving yards to opposing tight ends on the year, good for an average of 87.8 per game. As one of, if not the, most dominant tight ends in the NFL, Kittle is arguably the toughest test the 49ers defense will have faced in 2019. He's got a solid chance to reach 70 receiving yards tonight.
3. Christian Kirk - Receiving Yard: Over 50.5 (-118)
Like Coleman, Christian Kirk was also really impressive in his first game since returning from injury, catching eight of 11 targets for 79 yards. While the 49ers' defense is undoubtedly among the league's best, the Cardinals are 10.5-point underdogs, which could lead to a pass-heavy game flow for Arizona. If the Cards fall behind early, Kirk should see plenty of volume and thus receiving yards in Week 9.
4. Kyler Murray - Rushing Yards: Over 27.5 (-102)
Kyler Murray has been running the ball a lot more frequently over the past few weeks. After averaging 28.3 rushing yards per contest over the first four games of his career, Murray has averaged 41.5 per game in the last four. He has reached at least 28 rushing yards in three of the last four, and with Chase Edmonds and David Johnson likely to miss this game, Murray could get a few extra rushes that could lead to added yards on Thursday night.
