Before we jump into this weekend’s top Lions vs 49ers props, consider this. There’s an interesting symmetry at work in the NFC Championship Game between the visiting Detroit Lions and the home favorites the San Francisco 49ers.

Detroit hasn’t won a game in San Francisco since 1975. The Lions have also 11 road games in succession in the NFL preseason. However, Detroit’s last away victory in the NFL playoffs was a 31-27 verdict at San Francisco in 1957.

Should any of this information be affecting your choices when it comes to the Lions vs 49ers player props? Let’s have a look at that.

Lions vs 49ers Props #1: Christian McCaffrey Receptions

During last week’s playoff win over Green Bay, 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey caught seven passes from 12 targets. It was the second time in three games he’s seen double digits in targets.

He’s set with a receptions prop of 4.5 for this game. McCaffrey has gone over that number in three of his last four games and in nine games this season. In playoff games, he’s averaged five receptions per game over his NFL career (25 in five games).

  • Lions vs 49ers Prop Picks: Christian McCaffrey over 4.5 Receptions -130 (1 unit)  

Lions vs 49ers Props #2: David Montgomery Rushing Yards

The Packers were able to run on the 49ers defense in their NFC Divisional Round playoff game. Green Bay gained 136 yards on the ground, led by 108 yards from Aaron Jones.

Lions RB David Montgomery rambled for 1,015 yards on the ground during regular-season play. Though he was held to 33 yards on 10 carries in the NFL Divisional Round against Tampa Bay, Montgomery has gone over his assigned total of 43.5 yards rushing for this game in nine of Detroit’s last 11 games.

  • Lions vs 49ers Prop Picks: David Montgomery over 43.5 Rushing Yards -110 (1 unit)  

Lions vs 49ers Touchdown Scorer Props

Player Odds to Score 1st TD Odds to Score Any TD
Christian McCaffrey (SF) +325 -300
Brandon Aiyuk (SF) +800 -110
George Kittle (SF) +800 +115
David Montgomery (DET) +900 +125

Sam LaPorta (DET) +1100 +140
Jauan Jennings (SF) +2000 +300
Josh Reynolds (DET) +2200 +375

Editor’s note: the NFL public-betting splits from DraftKings show that McCaffrey (+335) is the most heavily bet player to score the first TD, attracting 40% of all money bet on the first TD market. Next on the list are Kittle (+900) and Montgomery (+1000) at just 9% of handle. 

McCaffrey is given the shortest odds in the anytime touchdown prop bets for this game of -300. He’s also the +325 chalk in the first TD market for Lions vs 49ers picks.

Lions vs 49ers Props #3: Christian McCaffrey Anytime Touchdown

There’s no such thing as a lock when it comes to NFL props, but McCaffrey getting up close and personal with the opposition’s end zone is about as close as a lock as there is in football.

In 36 games with the 49ers, he’s scored 31 TDs. McCaffrey has never failed to register a TD during an NFL postseason game. He scored twice against the Packers. Sure, the odds aren’t great, but even a little bit of found money is always a good thing for this weekend’s Lions vs 49ers picks.
