The final game on Week 3's Sunday slate should be one of the best of the year. Matt LaFleur and the Green Bay Packers travel to California to take on the San Francisco 49ers in a rematch of the 2019-20 NFC Championship Game. SF advanced to the Super Bowl without breaking a sweat in that one, topping the Packers, 37-20. The game was not as close as the score suggests, either.
Green Bay is looking for revenge, and bettors will be looking to cash in. With that in mind, here are three of the best prop bets for this Sunday night showdown.
Packers vs 49ers Prop Bets
3. Deebo Samuel - Rushing Yards: Over 5.5 (-110)
The 49ers are really banged up at running back, so we could see some gadget plays this week. That could lead to some more looks for both Trey Lance and wide receiver Deebo Samuel. Deebo had 2 carries for 8 yards last week. He also had at least 1 carry in six of his seven appearances last season. If Deebo is looking at a multi-carry game, it's hard to see him being held under six yards against a Packers' D that can't stop the run.
2. Davante Adams - Receiving Yards: Over 88.5 (-110)
This is a lofty total, but there's plenty of reason to believe Davante Adams can hit it. Last year, Adams averaged 98.1 receiving yards per game. He eclipsed this total in eight of his last 16 games (not counting the postseason). San Francisco has been a good defense to open the year, but it just lost its top corner Jason Verrett. Plus, Green Bay is a 3-point underdog, and that game script could lead to some more opportunities for Adams than usual.
1. Jimmy Garoppolo - Passing Yards: Under 236.5 (-110)
The Packers have been horrendous against the run, surrendering the fourth-most rushing yards per game (139.5) in the league. GB is also giving up 4.8 yards per rush and a whopping 9.2 yards per carry on runs outside the tackles. Even with all the injuries, San Francisco is going to attack this defense on the ground. It wouldn't be a surprise to see a heavy dose of Trey Lance in this one either, as SF doesn't have much depth beyond Trey Sermon at running back. The last time Jimmy Garoppolo played the Packers, he only attempted 8 passes as the 49ers ran the ball 41 times. Everything is pointing toward a similarly underwhelming showing here.
