3 Best Prop Bets for Arizona Cardinals vs. 49ers – Week 11
By Sion Fawkes
The Arizona Cardinals have a chance to improve their record to 5-6 behind Colt McCoy’s hot hand on Monday Night Football.
Often, I write my prop bets articles either the morning of or a day or two before. But given the sheer uncertainty of who would start at quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals and whether or not Marquise Brown or DeAndre Hopkins would be playing, I wanted to wait until the last possible minute for this one.
So if you have yet to place your prop bets and are interested to see which ones are my three favorites, this is an article you will want to read. What do I got for you? Keep reading to find out my three favorite prop bets for tonight’s game.
1 – Jimmy Garoppolo UNDER 245.5 passing yards
In five of Garoppolo’s eight starts this season, he has been held to below the 245.5-yard mark. And while the Arizona Cardinals defense has stagnated as of late, they are also coming off of a good game against the Los Angeles Rams.
Sure, they faced John Wolford, but you can’t deny that the game was a momentum-booster. I’m looking for a repeat performance tonight.
2 – Colt McCoy OVER 217.5 passing yards
While I can’t see McCoy having anything more than a pedestrian performance, he can nab the 217.5 mark fairly easily, assuming he uses quick reads again this week. This will negate the dynamic impact that Nick Bosa possesses.
If McCoy snags one more good performance tonight, especially against a defense as talented as San Francisco’s, he may very well be in the driver’s seat again next week. Given his ability to fine-tune the offense, look for him to eek just a few yards OVER the above mark.
3 – Christian McCaffrey OVER 63.5 rushing yards
McCaffrey has looked good in his small sample size with the 49ers, and the Arizona Cardinals are going to have a tough time stopping him on the ground, just as many teams do. They have also struggled against the run, so that’s another reason to have faith in McCaffrey inching over the 63.5 mark tonight.
Last week’s results…
Last week, I finished a dismal 1-2 in prop bets when the Cardinals faced the Rams in Week 10. I underestimated what McCoy could bring, and he clearly trounced the Cardinals 1.5 touchdown and 18.5 points mark. However, I did hit the Under for the Rams 20.5 projected points total.
I’m now in a bit of a hole, sitting at 13-17 this season in prop bets, and 28-32 overall this season. Not great, but not so far under 0.500 that I’m out of this just yet.
