Matthew Stafford NFC Championship Props 2022 | Prop Bets For 49ers vs Rams

After outdueling Kyler Murray and Tom Brady in the first two rounds of postseason play, Matthew Stafford has brought the Los Angeles Rams to the cusp of the Super Bowl.

Now, all that’s left to do is knock off the San Francisco 49ers, who beat Los Angeles in both of their regular-season matchups. Can Stafford finally vanquish the Rams’ divisional rivals and clinch his first Super Bowl appearance?

Let’s dive in to explore which prop bets you should target for Stafford in this Sunday’s NFC Conference Championship Game.

Matthew Stafford Conference Championship Prop Bets

UNDER 282.5 Passing Yards (-115) at BetMGM

Wager: 1 Unit

A big reason why the Rams are 0-2 against the 49ers this season is that Stafford hasn’t played particularly well against them, as San Francisco’s defense held him to 243 and 238 passing yards with a 4:4 TD/INT ratio.

The 49ers’ defense has continued to excel in the postseason, limiting Dak Prescott to 254 passing yards and Aaron Rodgers to 225 passing yards. Impressive, but hardly surprising given that San Francisco allowed the sixth-fewest passing yards during the regular season.

While Stafford is coming off a season-high 366 passing yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, we knew he was going to have to throw a lot to keep up with Brady. That won’t be the case against Jimmy Garoppolo, who’s banged up and has been largely ineffective during the playoffs.

Last game was also something of an aberration for Stafford, who’s thrown for fewer than 250 passing yards in four of his last six games. Accordingly, look for the 49ers’ stingy secondary to keep him in check and force the Rams to lean more on their rushing attack.

OVER 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (-250) at BetMGM

Wager: 1 Unit

While Stafford’s yardage prop seems too high, his touchdown prop seems too low. He’s already thrown 45 TDs in 19 games this year, averaging 2.4 per game.

Stafford has also notched multiple touchdowns 15 times this year, one of which was his three-TD performance against the 49ers during Week 18.

With a wide array of weapons such as Cooper Kupp and Odell Beckham Jr. at his disposal, Stafford should have little trouble finding the end zone multiple times for our NFL bet of the day.

OVER 0.5 Interceptions (-115) at BetMGM

Wager: 1 Unit

As mentioned earlier, the 49ers have already picked off Stafford four times in two games this season, recording two interceptions in both outings.

Lucky for us, we only need one interception for this bet to cash. Stafford was notoriously interception-prone this year, leading the NFL with 17 picks — 13 of which have come over his past 11 games.

Stafford has yet to throw an interception in the playoffs, but he’s yet to go three straight games without a pick this year. In other words, he’s due.

NFL Betting News

  • Early money slightly leaning towards the over in the 49ers-Rams matchup

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting good two-way action on the over/under for the NFC Championship Game matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the over of 46 points has attracted 55% of the bets and 60% of the money thus far. Much moreso than the AFC Championship Game, the betting splits on the point spread and total in this game are much more evenly split, so the sportsbook does not have too much liability on either at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Los Angeles's -170 moneyline odds have attracted 60% of the bets and 70% of the money.

  • Early bettors give slight lean to the Rams over the 49ers

    Based on the betting splits at DraftKings Sportsbook, the favored Los Angeles Rams are getting slightly more betting attention in their matchup with the San Francisco 49ers.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, Los Angeles's -3.5 point spread has received 65% of the bets and 61% of the handle thus far. Bettors are clearly torn in this matchup considering the Rams have arguably been playing better football through the first two playoff games, while the 49ers have won six consecutive games against the Rams, including a thrilling Week 18 overtime victory in Los Angeles.

  • Early money more than 4/1 on the over in the Bengals-Chiefs matchup

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting one-sided betting action for Sunday's over/under in the matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the over of 54.5 points has attracted 75% of the bets and 85% of the money thus far. At this point, the sportsbook has big liability to the Chiefs point spread and the over in this matchup, as their most ideal scenario would be a Bengals cover in a low-scoring game at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Kansas City's -335 moneyline odds have attracted 58% of the bets and 61% of the money.

    CIN vs. KC Game Page

  • Early money 3/1 on the Chiefs over the Bengals

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting one-sided betting action for Sunday's matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs, as the majority of the action is backing the favored Chiefs.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, Kansas City's -7 point spread has received 61% of the bets and 76% of the handle thus far. Cincinnati is shaping up to be the biggest need of any side or any total this weekend, as the public seems to be enamored with the Chiefs after their thrilling Divisional Round win over Buffalo.

  • 49ers-Rams over/under reaches lowest number of the week

    After another line movement, the over/under for the NFC Championship matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams has reached its lowest total of the week.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the 49ers-Rams over/under on Sunday night was posted at 47.5 points. It was quickly bet down to 46.5 in less than 24 hours. However, it has once again moved toward the under, and now currently sits at 46 points. Given that there has not yet been buyback on the over, it is extremely unlikely we see the total get back to anywhere close to the 47.5 points it opened at.
