The San Francisco 49ers will be looking to pull off another upset as they travel to Green Bay to take on the No. 1-seed Packers. FanDuel Sportsbook currently lists the Packers as 6-point favorites.

But there are plenty of other ways to wager on this one. Here are three of the best player prop bets for this NFC Divisional Round clash, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

49ers vs Packers Prop Bets

3. Jimmy Garoppolo - Passing Touchdowns: Under 1.5 (-136)

Jimmy Garoppolo hasn't thrown multiple touchdowns since Week 14, throwing 1 TD or fewer in four straight games. He's never thrown more than 2 touchdowns this season and has failed to record 2 passing TDs in 10 of his 16 appearances. Against a Green Bay defense that's decent against the pass and bottom five against the run, don't expect that to change. The 49ers should lean on their ground attack here, relegating Jimmy G to a game manager role.

2. Davante Adams - Receiving Yards: Over 91.5 (-110)

Davante Adams has been an absolute monster this season. He's averaged 97.1 receiving yards per game and eclipsed 92 yards in eight of his 16 appearances. Adams also torched San Francisco for 132 yards when these two met back in Week 3. That doesn't feel like a fluke, either. San Francisco's secondary has gotten ravaged by injuries and doesn't really have anyone capable of covering a player like Adams. Expect Rodgers to lean on his No. 1 target here.

1. Deebo Samuel - Rushing Yards: Over 38.5 (-114)

The 49ers' offense completely changed in Week 10 when Kyle Shanahan unleashed Deebo Samuel as a runner. Since then, Samuel has averaged 46.1 rushing yards on 7.0 carries per game. He's one of the most explosive players in the league with the ball in his hands, and he'll be facing a defense that has given up a lot of big plays on the ground. The Packers allow an explosive run on 14% of their opponents carries – the fifth-worst mark in football. Green Bay owns the league's fifth-worst run defense by DVOA and surrenders the third-most yards per carry (4.7). Expect Deebo to break a big run or two and cash this prop.
