- Bettors should fade Deebo Samuel’s receiving props in the NFC Championship Game because of inconsistent performances with Brock Purdy at quarterback.
- Focusing on Deebo Samuel’s touchdown scoring props is a better idea, as bets come with longer odds and include rushing equity.
PHILADELPHIA – Deebo Samuel’s receiving props versus the Philadelphia Eagles are likely to go under on Sunday based on his inconsistent production with Brock Purdy at quarterback.
Deebo Samuel’s Receiving Props
Legal NFL sportsbooks have set Deebo Samuel’s receiving yards prop above his 48.6 average this season.
Deebo Samuel Receiving Yards Prop
- Over 50.5 Receiving Yards -115
- Under 50.5 Receiving Yards -115
Deebo has seen his receiving yards per game go up with Brock Purdy (4 Receptions per game for 60.25 Yards), but bettors can clearly see that is only the case because of one game:
- Week 14 vs Tampa Bay: 4 Receptions for 43 Yards
- Week 18 vs Arizona: 2 Receptions for 20 Yards
- Week 19 vs Seattle: 6 Receptions for 133 Yards
- Week 20 vs Dallas: 4 Receptions for 45 Yards
With Deebo Samuel going under his reception yard total in three of his four games with Brock Purdy, taking the under at 50.5 receiving yards is a strong bet.
Samul has also only gone over his receptions prop at legal sports betting sites once with Purdy this season.
Deebo Samuel Receptions Props
- Over 4.5 Receptions -115
- Under 4.5 Receptions -115
Betting on a Deebo Samuel Touchdown
Betting on Deebo Samuel’s touchdown scoring props is a much better idea than either of his receiving props for two reasons:
- Deebo has found the endzone three times with Purdy under center, with two of those touchdowns coming via rush.
- Samuel has more rushing touchdowns this season (3) than he does receiving (2).
Deebo Samuel’s touchdown scoring props also have much longer odds than any of his receiving props at Bovada:
- Deebo Samuel Anytime Touchdown Scorer: +170
- Deebo Samuel First Half Touchdown Scorer: +350
- Deebo Samuel First Quarter Touchdown Scorer: +800
- Deebo Samuel First Touchdown Scorer: +1000
With rushing equity included in touchdown scoring props, betting on Deebo Samuel to find the endzone is a much better bet than either of his receiving props.
