The NFL decided to flex the Seahawks and 49ers game to Prime Time because the game has massive NFC playoff implications. If San Francisco wins, they will clinch home-field throughout the playoffs, but with a loss they will slide to a Wild Card spot. If Seattle wins, they can clinch the NFC West Division title and possibly a first round bye. The final Sunday Night game of the season is as big as it gets and the atmosphere will be electric in Seattle. Here are my top prop bets for Sunday Night Football.

Sunday Night Football Prop Bets
1. Russell Wilson At Least 256 Passing Yards (-117)
Wilson and the Seahawks offense struggled last week in the home loss to the Cardinals. As a team they only had 224 total yards of offense and Wilson only had 169 yards through the air. Seattle is decimated with injuries at running back and will need Wilson to be at his best to have a chance in this game. The Niners defense has been shredded over the past three weeks allowing 35 points per game. Seattle will have some big play opportunites and I expect Wilson to bounce back and play well Sunday Night.
2. George Kittle At Least One Touchdown (+120)
George Kittle is one of the top tight ends in the NFL and has had another great season in San Francisco. He is 33 yards away from having his second straight 1,000 yard season. Kittle is the top target for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo who needs to play well in what will be the biggest game of his young career. Look for Kittle to be a key player in the game plan and especially when the Niners get in the red zone.
3. Tyler Lockett At Least 61 Receiving Yards (-117)
The entire Seattle offense struggled last week including Lockett who only had one catch for 12 yards. He is the number one receiver for Russell Wilson and Lockett has gone over 1,000 yards receiving for the first time in his career. He has been in a mini slump over the past six games only going over 100 yards receiving once. The majority of the Seattle receivers are young and inexperienced and Lockett will need to step up. I think Lockett will be up for the challenge and make an impact against the struggling 49ers defense.

4. Raheem Mostert At Least one Touchdown (+100)
Mostert has become the lead back for San Francisco and has had double digit carries in five straight games. Even more impressive is that he has scored a touchdown in five consecutive games. The Seahawks have struggled stopping the run all season allowing 117 yards per game. Mostert is an explosive player and has a great opportunity to score a touchdown for the sixth consecutive game.
