The Eagles welcome the 49ers to Lincoln Financial Field Sunday afternoon where the two teams will look to improve to 2-0. This is one of the more intriguing early afternoon matchups, and it’s widely expected that plenty of betting action will be flowing on both sides.

Let’s jump into this early Sunday afternoon NFC showdown with a look at the best 49ers vs. Eagles player props picks.

49ers vs. Eagles Player Props Picks

Jalen Hurts Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (+120)

Hurts threw three touchdowns last week. Quite clearly, the San Francisco 49ers are a far superior defensive team to the Atlanta Falcons.

Still, this total is artificially low. Hurts threw for 264 yards last week on the road. He’s home this week, and it’s the Eagles’ home opener. Hurts has had another week of repetitions with the first team in practice and has already thrown touchdowns to three different receivers (DeVonta Smith, Dallas Goedert and Jalen Raegor). 

This pick is also largely informed by the 2020 49ers defense, which was ranked seventh against the pass and fourth against the run but still finished 17th overall based almost entirely on having given up over 24 points per game. Whether those touchdowns came from short fields or isolated drives, they all counted.

Additionally, the Detroit Lions scored 33 points last week (and were driving late trying to tie) after the 49ers jumped out to a 35-10 lead. Garbage time touchdowns count the same for our purposes.

Dallas Goedert Over 35.5 Yards Receiving (-120)

There are no easy wins against the book, and this number is set right about where it belongs. Goedert averaged 47.6 yards per game last season and had 42 yards receiving last week. Again, the 49ers are a good defensive team, and so most of the player prop totals seem a little deflated as a result.

But the strength of the 49ers defense actually suggests that Hurts will need to look to the tight end more frequently than normal as the pocket around him gets tighter and more short-lived. Additionally, Goedert eclipsed 35.5 receiving yards in all six of his starts prior to being inactive in Week 17.

You’re likely to have to sweat this one a bit, though, because Goedert’s last four yardage totals have been 42, 38, 39 and 43. As always, though, it’s not about how many the bet covers by.

Miles Sanders Under 60.5 Yards Rushing (+100)

Sanders covered the over in this spot last week and cashed for us. But there were some troubling indicators. Sanders spent a long stretch of the game on the sideline watching Kenneth Gainwell take nine of Sanders’ carries, one of which yielded a touchdown. 

And in truth, this wasn’t wholly unexpected. Sanders doesn’t have the physicality of a workhorse back, and in past years he has been a bit fumble-prone. These factors likely have contributed to his relatively light workload; Sanders averaged fewer than 14 carries per game in 2020.

Where Sanders normally earns his money is with his average yards per carry – 5.3 yards in 2020, 4.9 last week against Atlanta.

The 49ers aren’t giving five yards a carry up to any running back, much less Sanders. This feels like the easiest bet on the board.
