49ers vs Rams Prop Bets: NFC Championship Prop Betting Picks
Deebo Samuel: UNDER 4.5 Receptions (-130) at Caesars
The 49ers made their push for a playoff spot by utilizing Deebo Samuel more in the running game. He’s notched at least five carries in each of his last 10 games, including 10 totes in both of San Francisco’s playoff games thus far.
Deebo’s increased involvement on the ground has come at the expense of his receiving work, however. He’s netted just seven total targets in the postseason and has fewer than five receptions in eight of his last nine games.
With the 49ers going run-heavy in the playoffs to limit Jimmy Garoppolo‘s deficiencies under center, the Under is the way to go here.

Odell Beckham Jr.: UNDER 52.5 Receiving Yards (-115) at Caesars
Odell Beckham Jr. played a key role in the Rams’ victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week, catching six of eight targets for 69 yards. The six receptions equaled his season-high.
As good as Beckham was last week, this might be a tough number for him to hit the Over on. Across his last six games, he’s gone under this mark four times.

Beckham also hasn’t had much success against the 49ers this year, managing just two catches for 18 yards in both of his games against them.
Given Beckham’s spotty usage and San Francisco’s ability to shut down the passing game (sixth-fewest passing yards allowed during the regular season), I’m leaning towards the Under here.

Robbie Gould: OVER 1.5 Field Goals Made (+110) at Caesars
Make no mistake about it, the 49ers don’t exactly have a potent offense. Their running game is excellent, but Garoppolo has been inconsistent and is playing hurt.
Luckily for them, they have one of the more reliable kickers in the league in Robbie Gould, who still gets them points when drives stall.
Gould converted 87 percent of his field-goal attempts during the regular season and is a perfect five-for-five in the playoffs. In fact, he is a perfect 20-for-20 in his postseason career.
Add in the fact that he has drilled multiple field goals in four straight games, and taking the Over at plus odds could be worth the risk for our NFL bet of the day.
