This week’s Sunday Night matchup has possible NFC playoff and Super Bowl implications. San Francisco has the top record in the NFC with Green Bay and New Orleans one game behind. Traveling to frigid Green Bay or possibly the Superdome in January is not something the 49ers want to have to deal with. With only six games left in the regular season, each game becomes more important as we head into the final quarter of the season.
Below are my top prop bets for Sunday night in San Francisco.
San Francisco More First Downs (-133)
The Niners have some significant injuries on the offensive line, receiver and at running back, but fortunately they have solid depth on offense. George Kittle, Deebo Samuel and Emmanuel Sanders are all questionable for the game. I think Jimmy G and the offense will be able to move the ball against a Packers defense that has struggled recently. On the other side of the ball, San Francisco has an elite defense that will give Aaron Rodgers trouble all night. The 49ers give up 253 yards a game and only 15 points per game.
Aaron Rodgers Over 22.5 Completions (-113)
The Packers are healthy coming into this key matchup. The Packers top receiver Davante Adams is starting to get back into a groove after missing four games with a toe injury. I don’t anticipate a huge passing game from Rodgers due to the talented defense of the Niners, but I do feel he can go over this prop. Over the past seven games, he has completed at least 22 passes in every game except for the Carolina game when a blizzard hit Lambeau Field in the second half.

Tevin Coleman Over 53.5 Rushing Yards (-129) And At Least 1 Touchdown (-142)
Given that running back Matt Breida is doubtful for the game with an ankle injury, this could open the door for Tevin Coleman to get a much heavier workload. Coleman has 409 rushing yards on the season and has six total scores on the season which leads the team. Green Bay has had trouble stopping the run this season, and look for San Francisco to get the running game going early. Coleman has played in eight games this season and has had double digit carries in six of them.
Davante Adams At Least 1 Touchdown (+100)
Adams has played well since he returned from injury and has led the team in targets. Over the past three games, he has been targeted 36 times with 24 catches. But, somehow Adams still does not have a touchdown catch on the season. From 2016-2018, he caught 35 touchdowns and was automatic in the red zone. He has to score at some point and he should have a few opportunites Sunday Night.
