Why These are Harry’s Best 49ers Super Bowl Prop Bets
Now everybody knows the awesome power of the San Francisco 49ers run game after they laid waste to the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship game. While everybody is confusingly demeaning the performance of Jimmy Garoppolo because he barely had to throw the ball against the Packers, this 49ers team is one the best all-around squads in the NFL and has been all season long.
The 49ers boast one of the best defensive lines in football, led by sensational rookie Nick Bosa, and have a backend bolstered by the resurgent Richard Sherman. But the question on everyone’s mind for Super Bowl LIV is, “can they 49ers continue their dominant play against the Chiefs?” Well, Harry Gagnon is here to help you put some extra bills in your wallet with his best 49ers Super Bowl prop bets.

Best 49ers Super Bowl Prop Bet No. 1: Jimmy Garoppolo Over 236.5 Passing Yards (-115)
The 49ers have not had to do too much passing in the postseason, as quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has only 17 total pass completions in the team’s two victories. The defense for San Francisco has done its job and has allowed Garoppolo the luxury of not having to go out there and win the game on his arm. In this spot against a team like Kansas City, Jimmy G will have to make plays and find receivers to keep up with the Chiefs scoring.
I think to forget that Jimmy G passed for just under 4,000 yards and had a 2:1 touchdown to interception ratio (27 TD’s, 13 picks) in the regular season. His biggest problem right now is that he needs to get tight end George Kittle and in–season pickup wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders more involved in the offense. The flow of this game will be different than the other two playoff games for the 49ers and Jimmy G will be asked to make plays. For those reasons and more I think the over is the play here.
Best 49ers Super Bowl Prop Bet No. 2: George Kittle Over 69.5 Receiving Yard (-125)
Kittle is easily the best tight end in the NFC and possibly the best in the entire league; he had over 1,000 yards receiving while hauling in 85 receptions on just 107 targets in the regular season. However, in the playoff games against the Vikings and the Packers, Kittle has been kept quit. In the Super Bowl Jimmy G is going to have to count on someone to make key receptions and Kittle will be his main target.

Best 49ers Super Bowl Prop Bet No. 3: Deebo Samuel to Score a Touchdown and Team Wins (+350)
These two wagers on Samuel go hand and hand. Samuel has had a terrific rookie season with almost 1,000 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns each rushing and receiving. He has been the main target in the playoffs for the Niners and had 89 yards combined versus the Packers last week. He just might be the guy the 49ers look to go to for a trick play sort of like how Heinz Ward was the man for the Steelers in the Super Bowl against the Seahawks.
Samuels is most certainly capable of big-time plays. He came real close to busting a long touchdown last week on the 49ers second possession when he just missed out on a 70-yard touchdown reception. In my opinion, Samuels is my player to look out for the most on February 2nd.
