The San Francisco 49ers are in the NFC Championship Game for the third time in four seasons, and tight end George Kittle will likely need to have a big impact if they’re going to reach the Super Bowl for the second time in that span.
Kittle has been an X-factor in the Niners’ offense for years and is continuing to be for rookie quarterback Brock Purdy.
Here’s a look at our favorite George Kittle prop bets to consider for the NFC Championship Game between the 49ers and Eagles.

George Kittle Receptions Prop
George Kittle: Over 3.5 Receptions (-174) at Caesars Sportsbook
WAGER: 2 Units
Kittle has only failed to register four catches in a game twice all season. He had five catches for 95 yards in the Niners’ 19-12 win over the Cowboys in the NFC Divisional Round.
The Eagles have been allowing 4.1 receptions to tight ends this season. Plus, given the likelihood of Philadelphia’s defense loading the box to slow Christian McCaffrey, Deebo Samuel, and Elijah Mitchell in the run game, Kittle should hit a bunch of slant and hitch routes.
The odds aren’t great here ($0.57 profit per dollar wagered), but they’re good enough to simply add an extra unit, cash the bet, and call it a win.
