The San Francisco 49ers defense will have their hands full when they are tasked to slow down the Detroit Lions backfield.

Jahmyr Gibbs and David Montgomery anchor one of the best RB duos in the NFL this season and are a big reason why the Lions have advanced to the NFC Championship.

Both backs bring their own style of play that will challenge Nick Bosa, Fred Warner, Dre Greenlaw, and rest of the San Francisco stout defense.

All Conference Championship odds used in these props are from DraftKings Sportsbook and current as of Monday, Jan. 22 at 11 a.m. ET.

Jahmyr Gibbs Yardage Prop

Jahmyr Gibbs: 75+ Alt Rush & Rec Yards

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

Gibbs has eclipsed this total in one of two playoff contests thus far and in four of his last seven contests.

Sure, the 49ers probably have the best defense of any of those opponents, but the rookie back has proven himself to be one of the most explosive players in this postseason.

In each playoff game, Gibbs has four catches for at least 40 yards. He’s also rushed for 74 and 25 yards, respectively, in those games.

He’s collected at least 12 touches in seven straight games. If you believe the Lions have a real shot to win this game, capitalizing on this sort of player prop bet makes perfectly sense.

David Montgomery Touchdown Prop

David Montgomery: First Touchdown

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.25 Units

Montgomery has at least one rushing touchdown in four of his last five games. He’s scored in 75% of his games (12-of-16) this season.

Sure, you could take the anytime TD odds (+120) but sometimes it feels right to roll the dice and these (+1000) odds feel like a great value considering how often Montgomery finds the end zone.
