- Brock Purdy props feature -130 odds to continue his 7-game streak of 2+ touchdowns
- An interesting prop of longest pass completion over 37.5 yards comes in at -115 odds
- Purdy threw for a season-high 332 pass yards and three touchdowns in the Wild Card round
SAN FRANCISCO – Brock Purdy and the -3.5 spread favorite San Francisco 49ers take on the Dallas Cowboys for a Divisional round matchup this Sunday.
After a heroic performance last week, legal betting sites have set various passing props for the young QB. Some notable ones include -130 odds to throw over 1.5 touchdowns, and a longest pass completion of 37.5 set at -115.
Purdy Looks to Extend 2-TD Streak to Eight
While coming into the season as Mr. Irrelevant, the 49ers rookie has been anything but, throwing for at least two passing touchdowns in seven straight games since taking over for the injured Jimmy Garoppolo. Purdy has even stepped it up a notch, now logging three touchdown passes for the second straight week.
This streak has been defined by Purdy’s unreal accuracy and efficiency in the redzone, where he completes a whopping 75% of all passes and has thrown six touchdowns inside the five-yard line on just seven attempts.
The Cowboys defense has been daunting against the pass this year, allowing two or more passing touchdowns in just seven games throughout the season. However, they have allowed two or more in three of their last five games, including last week against the Buccaneers.
This bodes well for Purdy, who is equipped with some of the best redzone weapons in the NFL as well as Kyle Shanahan’s elite play design, making his over 1.5 passing touchdowns prop (-130) a strong bet given his almost unparalleled consistency throughout the past two months.
The 49ers Offense is as Explosive as Ever
With a longest completion prop of 37.5 yards that legal NFL sportsbooks have set at -115 odds, Purdy will look to his extremely talented weapons for big plays. Over his last five games, Purdy has completed a 42+ yard pass in four of them, including a 74-yard Deebo Samuel catch-and-run last week.
Looking at the rookie’s weapons makes it no surprise how he has managed to be so consistent on a stat that tends to be volatile: Christian McCaffery and Deebo Samuel are among the best yards after catch players, both ranking in the top 15 with McCaffery at second.
Outfitted with an uber-talented team, YAC monsters CMC and Deebo, and offensive genius Kyle Shanahan, it’s no wonder Purdy has been ridiculously efficient and consistent. With seven weeks in the book already there is no reason to expect a slow-down, making Purdy’s 37.5 yard longest pass completion prop a nice inclusion in a parlay or as a standalone bet with -115 odds for the over.
