Total: Over/Under 51
49ers vs Lions: Same-Game Parlay +950
Brock Purdy OVER 279.5 passing yards
Brock Purdy can be hit-and-miss when it comes to betting, but there’s one key number here that matters when debating this relatively high total. Detroit ranks 31st against the pass, but they are much stronger against the run, sitting 2nd. In a world where the Lions can somehow stagnate Christian McCaffrey, it’s only going to push Purdy to force the ball down the field against a vulnerable secondary.
The Lions are all about tempo offensively, but they’re giving up a 28th-worst 5.7 yards per play. I like Purdy to have his way with this secondary.
Sam LaPorta OVER 50 receiving yards
Sam LaPorta was one of our huge home-run hits last week, playing a vital role in cashing our Same Game Parlay with a 9-reception game. While he may not see as much traffic this week, the odds on a 50+ yard outing (+100) look great.
LaPorta showed last week that the hyperextended knee is long behind him and that he’s ready to get back to the kind of games he put up against Dallas and New Orleans. This is still a tame number and you can tease it down however far you’d like, but San Francisco is giving up 47 yards per game to TE’s this year, and LaPorta is more than your average Joe.
Deebo Samuel anytime TD: -105
After picking up a mild shoulder injury against the Packers, Deebo is practicing again and looks to be a prime target for bettors this weekend.
It’s been a quiet few weeks for Samuel, who hasn’t posted more than 50 yards since December 10th. In that span, he also only has 3 touchdowns.
The last time he played the Lions, Deebo Samuel went off for 189 yards and a touchdown. You can back his receiving total if you want, but the odds are juicier on the touchdown line.
Christian McCaffrey UNDER 86.5 rushing yards
It’s not often we go into a game wanting bet against CMC, but this is one of those rare occasions. The Lions do have a very solid run defense, it’s just the pass defense that causes them issues. As a result, I think we can expect the Niners to quickly pivot away from the run, instead using McCaffrey as a receiving threat.
The beauty of this situation is that McCaffrey dominated the league this year and put up 1400+ yards, even a stripped-back total is high. 86.5 yards for most running backs would be a great day, so there’s a lot of wriggle room here, with McCaffrey basically able to perform to a league average before this line gets testy. It’s an easy addition to the SGP!
