3 Best Jimmy Garoppolo Prop Bets for 49ers vs Rams NFC Championship Game
Jimmy Garoppolo has hardly been the best quarterback this postseason, but he's managed to find a way to bring the San Francisco 49ers back to the NFC Championship Game. Now, fans are wondering just which version of 'Jimmy G' will show up to battle the rival Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.
49ers vs Rams Odds
Advancing to Super Bowl 56 won't be easy for the 49ers. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing them as the 3.5-point road underdogs in the NFC Championship Game.
Still, Garoppolo has proven time and time again that he has no issues proving his doubters wrong. If you're looking to add some extra excitement to this weekend's football festivities, here's a look at the three best Garoppolo-centric player props.
Jimmy Garoppolo Player Props
1. Jimmy Garoppolo - Passing Yards: Over 224.5 (-114)
One of the most-talked-about playoff stories is that Garoppolo has averaged just 151.5 passing yards in San Francisco's first two playoff games. Taking that into account, some may think that he'll have difficulties hitting the over on this prop. That may not be the case. Garoppolo has actually had a lot of success against the Rams, going a perfect 6-0 against them in six career meetings. He's averaged 258.2 passing yards in those contests, hitting the over in all but one game. While his recent play may have some bettors feeling cautious, look for Garoppolo to bounce back with a Super Bowl appearance on the line.
2. Jimmy Garoppolo - Passing Touchdown: Under 1.5 (-140)
While Garoppolo's passing yard totals have been under scrutiny lately, it's important to point out that he also has just three passing touchdowns in his last five games and zero in the most recent two. Garoppolo finished with two touchdowns just six times this season and hasn't hit the mark since Week 14. The 49ers' focus is clearly on the run game, which has caused his passing attempts to decrease in each of the last three weeks. San Francisco will continue going with what works, which doesn't bode well for Garoppolo's touchdown prospects.
3. Jimmy Garoppolo - Passing Attempts: Under 30.5 (-136)
As mentioned above, Garoppolo's passing attempts have declined in recent weeks. While he threw 30-plus in four of his final five regular season games, he's attempted 44 total passes in San Francisco's two postseason contests. He went from throwing the ball 25 times in the Wild Card Round to just 19 in the Divisional Round. He's averaged the under on this prop (29.5) in his six career meetings against the Rams, which further cements the case for the under here. The run game is just working too well for the 49ers to abandon. Unless something changes, betting on the under seems like the safer option.
