Christian McCaffrey Total Yards Prop
Christian McCaffrey: Under 101.5 Rush + Rec Yards (-131) at Caesars Sportsbook
WAGER: 1 Unit
The Niners-Eagles game expects to be a knockdown, drag-out defensive struggle, which means yards should be hard to come by. McCaffrey has only surpassed 100 all-purpose yards in seven of 13 games since he was traded by Carolina in October, and Philadelphia’s defense only allowed 120 yards per game to running backs during the regular season.
Granted, McCaffrey is not just any running back, but he’s reportedly being hampered by a calf injury. He had just 57 all-purpose yards against the Cowboys in the divisional round but did score a touchdown.
Barring a big run or catch in the passing game, it seems likely McCaffrey will be bottled up by the Eagles’ defense.

McCaffrey has scored in eight straight games, including accounting for the 49ers’ lone score in their 19-12 win over Dallas. San Francisco isn’t likely to be held out of the end zone, and if it isn’t, it’s a safe bet McCaffrey will be the TD scorer.
