The next round of the 2021-22 NFL Playoffs is here, meaning the San Francisco 49ers are set to collide with the Los Angeles Rams in this year's NFC Championship Game. The Rams are currently the 3.5-point home favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest odds.

Here are three of the best prop bets for this NFC Championship showdown, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

49ers vs Rams Prop Bets

1. Cooper Kupp - Receiving Yards: Over 103.5 (-114)

Finishing with 104 receiving yards is a tough task for most wide receivers, but not Cooper Kupp. The fifth-year wideout has been a machine all season, hitting the over on this prop in six of his last eight games. Not only that be he finished with at least 118 receiving yards in both of his games against the 49ers this year. The Rams won't want to let their shot at winning their first Super Bowl in over two decades slip through their hands, so it should be another busy day for Kupp.

2. Elijah Mitchell - Rushing Yards: Over 72.5 (-114)

Elijah Mitchell has been a consistent rushing threat throughout the campaign, averaging 87.5 yards in 10 regular season and 74.5 in two playoff games so far. While the Rams have allowed an average of just 56.0 yards during their postseason contests, it's hard to imagine that holding up against a run-heavy team like San Francisco. Mitchell hit the over on this prop in both of his games against Los Angeles this season and sees enough volume (23.1 carries in the last seven games) that he can likely do it for the third time.

3. Jimmy Garoppolo - Passing Yards: Over 228.5 (-114)

The 49ers have advanced to the NFC Championship Game despite Jimmy Garoppolo averaging 151.5 passing yards per game this postseason. While the run game will still likely be San Francisco's top priority, that doesn't mean he can't hit the over on this prop. Garoppolo threw for 316 yards against the Rams in Week 18 and is averaging 258 passing yards per game in six career meetings against Los Angeles. Don't expect any major passing numbers from him, but it also wouldn't be shocking if he finished with the over if recent history is any indication.
